Introducing Stow Park Avenue, a prestigious 7 bedroom semi-detached Victorian home, proudly situated in one of Newport's most sought-after residential areas.

This stunning property was built in 1881 and seamlessly blends period grandeur with modern luxury, offering an exceptional living experience. Spread over three expansive floors and complemented by a versatile cellar, this home presents a rare opportunity to embrace both historical charm and contemporary comfort in one of the city's most desirable locations.

Set back from the road, this stately residence is approached via a gated and private garden, where flagstone steps and a meandering pathway, bordered by an array of beautiful plants, lead to the property's entrance. Impressive, characterful tall wooden doors, painted in a distinguished deep blue, provide access to a welcoming inner porch where you are immediately greeted by the splendour of the home.

Beyond the porch, wooden glazed double doors open to reveal a grand entrance hallway that immediately captivates with its quintessential Victorian features. Original encaustic tiles underfoot, beautifully high ceilings, detailed plaster cornicing and deep skirting boards speak to the home's architectural heritage. An elegant archway draws the eye through, where a magnificent staircase awaits, its sweeping form a testament to the craftsmanship of a bygone era.

The ground floor unfolds into a series of stunning reception rooms, each with its own unique character. The spacious living area, with its rich green hues, creates an atmosphere of warmth and sophistication. More original features such as the picture rails, decorative ceiling rose, and wooden floorboards add to the room's period charm. An original marble fireplace houses a multi-fuel stove, while large sash windows, including a striking triple sash, open onto the charming rear garden, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living.

At the heart of the home, the kitchen diner is nothing short of spectacular. Bespoke deep blue shaker cabinetry is paired with luxurious Corian worktops, accented with copper fixtures that add a touch of warmth. A Lacanche oven sits in a designated alcove with charming yellow and blue tiling, while an integrated dishwasher and inset sink enhance functionality. Three double-glazed sash windows flood the space with natural light, illuminating the large grey floor tiles. A step up leads to a practical utility/ boot room and cloakroom, thoughtfully designed for modern family life. In addition, there is a further door which leads out onto the rear garden.

For more formal occasions, the dining room exudes elegance with its walls adorned in mustard yellow and white damask textured, luxury wallpaper. A large marble fireplace with ornate cast iron and tiled insert serves as a magnificent focal point, flanked by symmetrical windows with white wood panelling. Original bi-fold wooden doors open into the aptly named sunroom. Drenched in warm sunlight, it is the most delightful space to enjoy morning coffee or evening aperitifs.

The drawing room provides another sophisticated space for relaxation or entertaining. A stunning grey marble fireplace with a slate hearth houses a multi-fuel stove, creating an ambience of understated luxury. Exquisite cream patterned wallpaper adorns the walls while floor-to-ceiling sash windows usher in natural light. Alcove lighting and deep skirting boards add to the room's refined aesthetic.

Ascend the plush carpeted mahogany staircase to discover a galleried first-floor landing illuminated by a stained glass roof window. This level features four beautiful, well-proportioned double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The Master Suite exudes character and warmth with sunny yellow walls, complemented by a picture rail and white accents. Pitched pine panelling, skirting, original floorboards, and sash windows offer verdant views to create a truly special space. High ceilings accommodate a large chandelier, which amplifies the elegant tone.

Adjacent is a spacious bedroom, currently used as a dressing room, also adorned in yellow hues with a charming cast iron fireplace, original floorboards, and pitched pine sash windows.

Two additional well-appointed and beautifully furnished bedrooms complete the sleeping quarters on this floor. One features neutral decor with original architectural elements and two large sash windows, creating a timeless and sophisticated ambience. The other is equally characterful, with soothing mushroom hues creating a restful atmosphere, and serves as a serene retreat offering a picturesque view of the manicured rear garden. The family bathroom showcases a Victorian-style suite with elegant grey and mustard yellow accents, complemented by a large airing cupboard providing ample storage.

The upstairs cloakroom features a separate WC and a dedicated sink area, all adorned in elegant navy hues. Ample space allows for the potential installation of a shower or bath, should you wish to expand the facilities.

A further staircase leads to a galleried landing and the top floor accommodation, offering versatile spaces ideal for family living or guests. One of these bedrooms, currently serving as a home office, enjoys garden views. Another well-appointed room features warm neutral decor with original architectural elements and a dormer window offering beautiful vistas.

An expansive bedroom suite, presently used as a guest room and living area, boasts floor-to-ceiling sash windows that bathe the room in sunlight and offer stunning views of the city rooftops and Welsh hilltops.

This floor is completed by a characterful shower room featuring black and white tiled flooring, elegant grey wall panelling, and a sage green dresser with a built-in sink. The space is furnished with a glass-enclosed electric shower and WC, blending period charm with modern conveniences.

Take a walk back down to the hallway where you will find a hidden gem. A door and further staircase descend into a charming stone cellar. With built-in shelving, it’s the ideal place for storing your favourite wines.

The picturesque rear garden is a peaceful, enclosed retreat enveloped in nature's delights, featuring lush lawns, manicured borders, and established mature shrubs. Multiple areas for seating and alfresco dining can be found, including a large flagstone patio. A path leads through the gated side access to the front of the home where you will also find off-road parking in the form of a garage complete with an up-and-over door.

Stow Park, a highly sought-after residential area in Newport, was designated a conservation area in 1983. Its special interest stems from historical links to Newport's 19th-century commercial prosperity and the resulting architectural richness.

Stow Park Avenue offers not just a home, but a distinguished way of life. Envision hosting grand soirées in rooms steeped in history or enjoying tranquil moments in sun-drenched spaces overlooking manicured gardens. This exceptional residence provides a unique opportunity to own a piece of Newport's architectural heritage while enjoying the luxuries of contemporary living.

The current owners have not only sympathetically renovated the home but have also significantly enhanced its energy efficiency through several key improvements. The roof has been renovated and well-insulated, and many of the windows have been upgraded to more energy-efficient models. Additionally, two gas combination Baxi Blue boilers have been installed. These upgrades have improved the property's comfort and resulted in an updated Energy Performance Certificate, reflecting the home's increased energy efficiency while preserving its original character.

This property is within the catchment area for several primary and secondary schools, fine dining establishments, and cultural attractions, including the renowned Celtic Manor Resort and Belle Vue Park. The property's position on the west side of Newport enhances its desirability, offering an ideal balance of urban convenience and suburban charm.
