Mr Clarke thinks :
A place that feels immediately like home.
This quaint house is full of charm and surprise, from the handmade staircase to the perfectly formed courtyard garden.Set in the vibrant suburb of Maindee, this terrace sits in a row of seven properties and is at the eastern end of a quiet street. Within a few minutes you can be in Beechwood Park, established in Victorian times, full of beautiful, booming botanical specimens from around the world. Number 32 retains some lovely features that have stood the test of time - the rustic sanded floorboards are juxtaposed with more contemporary touches that make this a great two bedroom modern home.For more information visit our website or call us to arrange a viewing. Open the front door and make your way into the large and light lounge through a sweet entrance hall. The double aspect room is big enough for an impromptu gathering of friends, yet cosy enough for when you want to curl up in front of the TV and binge on that series youve been ever so looking forward to! Carry on into the kitchen and notice it country cottage vibe; the crafted units and quarry tiled floor to mention a couple.The door in the kitchen leads onto one of our favourite bits; the courtyard garden. The walled space is a rustic and splendid outdoor dining space perfect for having friends over for a bbq or sipping pre-drinks on a balmy summer evening. Back in the lounge you climb the handmade and ingenious (youll see when we show you around) staircase to discover the surprising space upstairs. A short landing leads off to the master bedroom that stretches across the front of the home and looks out over the city roof tops - it jaw dropping! Making your way along the landing, a stripped pine door leads off onto the another peaceful bedroom that overlooks the courtyard garden. Adding extra light to each of the bedrooms are charming internal windows. The great sized family bathroom has a corner bath and has lots of space to add the extra storage needed for a busy family.

The charm and character within the city!
A collection of greenery in Newport
This area of the city is a typical victorian suburb, only a few miles out from the city centre and sits in between two main arteries of the city, lying at the foot of the Christchurch Hill. Beechwood Park is right on your doorstep so you can look forward to weekend strolls in crunchy-leaf Autumn through to summery picnic days. If you want to indulge, head to the 5 star luxury Celtic Manor (which is a five-minute drive away up Christchurch) to top up on your golf skills, or pamper yourself with a facial and relax in the jacuzzi.
Kitting out your new home will be easy if you go and speak to Paul in Beechwood Beds, and if its a candle you’re after then he has plenty of these too. If your taste in furniture is somewhat more vintage the Umbrella Project has loads of pieces ready painted in Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey which is just down the road in Maindee. It's worth making a morning of treasure hunting here to be honest! Pretty much next door is what is fast becoming an icon - especially if you have a sweet tooth - Beth Bakes. The most delicious cakes and sweet things...bring a rucksack.
Newport's more established food icon, Palfrey’s is a stone throw away, where the Beef Wellington prepared by butcher Mark will become a weekly staple. If you like Middle Eastern cuisine then Sen BBQ fights for supremacy in our house...which I’m sure is the same in many homes across the city. You get to know the coffee shop owners here, and everyone is super friendly, so you will feel welcomed for sure.
Maindee is served by some cracking primary schools; Eveswell, and St Julians Comprehensive is not too far away either. You're well connected here too. There’s plenty of great transport links throughout the city so when Christmas shopping calls, you don't need the headache of finding somewhere to park. If you're heading further afield, turn onto Chepstow Road and you can be on the M4 within a few minutes, or head northeast from there and the countryside awaits at Wentwood Forest - wonderful!
