Mr Clarke thinks :
Throwing those doors open and watching the world outside makes for a great evening.
This one-bedroom home is spacious and achingly cool. Being 10 minutes away from the happening city there’s no surprise that this apartment gives off modern vibes. This is a welcoming home from the moment you enter. The communal areas are perfectly kept and as you head up the staircase to the top floor you'll find the apartment. The door opens into the hall with space to dump your bag and pop your coat too.
The heart of this fabulous home is undoubtedly the open plan living space. There’s plenty of space for a dining table and chairs where you can sit and chat with family and friends with a lovely view of the woodlands of Llanwern. Light floods into the room which is framed by beautifully large glass Juliet balcony doors. We can’t help but think of all the movies nights we’ll have whilst watching the night sky from the comfort of the sofa.
Mrs Clarke loves :
I can move straight in and I’m a stroll away from town. What’s not to love?
The kitchen, continues the modern theme, with the light oak slab door cabinetry giving this space a feeling of warmth. It's got everything you need for to knock up a Masterchef-inspired dinner for one or two and ideal for re-heating some pizza on a Sunday morning. Along the corridor, you come to a storage cupboard and a cloakroom and the bedroom. It has similar great views as the living room, however, it feels intimate and quiet. After a hard day in work, this will feel like a sanctuary. The well proportioned, mirrored bathroom is a great place for a pampering session.
So what else do you need to know? There is space. There is style. You are also very well connected here; five minutes you're on the motorway or in the shops and in even less time you're in the park. Creating a happy work-life balance will be great here even if you're commuting to and from buzzing Cardiff or Bristol.
- Three words : Perfect. Modern. Apartment.

A collection of greenery in Newport
The apartment is in a great spot for accessing everything that the city has to offer. It's only a few miles out from the city centre but it's vide is different. 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. Up over the hill and down again is Caerleon and you also have a plethora of shops at Spytty. If its more local you’re after Maindee isn’t to far. Kitting out your new home will be easy if you go and speak to Paul in Beechwood Beds, and if it's 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. It's worth making a morning of treasure hunting here to be honest!
Newport's cafe stalwart the Wayfarers is perhaps a little closer. You get to know the cafe owners here, and everyone is super friendly, so you will feel welcomed for sure. If a merlot is more your thing then the Man of Gwent couldn’t be any closer. The obvious advantage of living here is the connections to everywhere. There’s plenty of great transport links throughout the city so when a summer shopping spree is needed and you don't need the headache of finding somewhere to park. If you're heading further afield, you can be on the M4 within a few minutes, or head northeast from there and the countryside awaits at Wentwood Forest - wonderful!
