Mike thinks:
Our Sunday roast setting never looked so good.

A gorgeous three-bedroom home with a loft space and generous garden. This location is perfectly serene, and the interiors are pristine. This is a natural family home. You'll find this happy three-bedroom home close to an excellent school, nature reserve,

Relaxing with my newest interiors magazine in the living room.

You'll find this happy three-bedroom home close to an excellent school, nature reserve, and the M4. The entrance hallway is bright and there are already coat hangers waiting for you to pop your coat up. Functionality and aesthetics unite; this home is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter. With original features complimenting the appropriately styled home, this is a space that is family-friendly and can be moved straight into. Swap your boots for some slippers and head to the cosy living room. It's perfect for curling up in front of the TV and people watch from the bay window. The fireplace adorned with tiles is a real centrepiece. Pop candles and photo frames along the mantlepiece and you're good to go!
Next door is the dining room which has easy-sweep wooden flooring and another bold fireplace. This is a great setup for when family and friends come to visit for dinner. The kitchen is super spacious and light, creating the perfect cooking quarters to prepare a feast.
You can look at your generous garden from here and admire the children and pets playing.

The large garden isn't overlooked, but you can spy a grazing field for horses just ahead. Pluck wild strawberries or pick cherries from your very own plants outside. There's a decking area from which you can enjoy them, and in spring you'll be able to admire the cherry blossom in bloom. The canal system nearby holds a lot to be explored, and the surrounding greenery is what makes this home so desirable.
The upstairs bedrooms are large, beautifully airy, and are lovingly decorated. The main bedroom features alcoves which is used as a dressing area, however, you could sculpt some built-in wardrobes. There are a further two bedrooms which can be children's rooms or a home office - the choice is yours. It is worth bearing in mind though that the loft has had a makeover. Carpets and a skylight adorn the once attic and we reckon this would be the ideal home office set up.
The family bathroom completes the first floor. Its high spec rainfall shower and design which is in keeping with the property's general style. This is a true sanctuary.

Leafy suburb of the city


This traditional 30’s semi is positioned not far from the Mon and Brecon Canal, within two minutes you can be enjoying a stroll or taking the e-bike on a blast to walks towards Fourteen Locks. Allt-yr-ryn nature reserve and Jews Wood (which has just had an upgrade) are not far away either. On a summer’s day skip just down the road with the pooch and visit National Trusts’ Tredegar House and park, or if you’re fancying a day trip with the little ones then you’re close enough to the motorway so it’s no bother at all. You’re so close to the local connections that almost anything is possible! On a crisp winters morning we recommend heading to The Cafe at Ridgeway to have a latte and a natter with friends. There is a wealth of toddler groups, clubs, social activities, fitness classes as well as Stow Park tennis club – making this a great place for families

Nature is all around. This is the ideal place to live a great quality life. We like to get our heart pumping by climbing the hill at the top of Ridgeway and admiring the surrounding . It’s the perfect place to play eye spy and watch barges (don’t forget to grab yourself the best bacon sandwich at Fourteen Locks Canal café). There’s something for everyone here. For fancy occasions head to Gem42 on the bridge where Anna and Pasquale enthuse guests with their sumptuous Italian fair or pop into the Ridgey and have a chat with Tom. Go on a Tuesday for their infamous steak nights, heaven!! If you’re after a celebration gift (for someone special or even yourself!) then pop over to the lovely Machen interiors over in Caerleon – it’s a beautiful independent homeware store which we’re sure you will love. Walk your kids to exceptional Glasllwch Primary and within 20 minutes have walked to one of two trains stations into Cardiff, Bristol or London. If the car is more your mode then the M4 is just 1 min away where you can be in London in just 2 hours.
