This Grade II listed grand residence is one of the most impressive properties in south Wales. The property was saved from inevitable collapse and is now fully restored by skilled craftsmen and modernised for today's lifestyle. There is a rich history attached to the building and now, in all its grandeur, it is ready for its next chapter in life.Open the imposing Jacobean front door and you are greeted by this sense of history, that gets you excited to see more. Walking through the octagonal tower entrance with its original quarry tiled flooring, the elegant glass doors lead you to the expansive reception hall. Here the working marble fireplace and walkover glass panel looking down into the cellar is just the start of the many impressive features this house has to offer.
In the grand Drawing Room to the right, looking over the garden, we think about the fabulous house warming party you could host. To the left, the Morning Room, where the stylish vibe continues - another working marble fireplace, high ceilings, oak flooring and original wood-panelled shutters give this room a warm sociable feel. Then on through magnificent glass doors, into an opulent and tropical orangery - this truly needs to be seen to appreciate its unique space.
The beating heart of a home has to be the kitchen, and this one is worthy of gracing the pages of Living etc. It has been designed and handmade to emulate the wood-panelled shutters in the rest of the house. The large island is the hub of the cooking space, where you can perch for breakfast whilst looking out across the courtyard. There is a dining area too, so the whole family can be together. It is flooded with natural light from full height bi-fold doors.
Head down to the cellar rooms - yet another stylish place that's achingly cool. The main cellar room has a multitude of uses; our suggestions might be a cinema, gym or games room. Don't worry, there is an additional brick-vaulted room for the wine! Yet another room provides a huge utility space with double arched doors leading up and out to the garden.
Back in the reception hall, the original stone staircase with iron balustrade sweeps you up to the first-floor landing, a simply outstanding spot where breathtaking stained glass windows illuminate the space effortlessly.
There are three larger than large bedrooms, and - our favourite room on this level - the octagonal shower wet room with Milan stone tiles, cast iron fireplace and tall windows. An additional bathroom on this floor is spa-like, with Carrara marble tiles laid in a herringbone fashion, traditional style shower and a claw foot bath to enjoy a relaxing soak by candlelight.
Go up the white wooden stairs to the second floor to find three further bedrooms and another family bathroom. One of the bedrooms has its own private corridor and modern en-suite - just perfect for guests; another comes with its outside terrace, large enough for that hot tub, or just to sit and catch the sun as it sets.
A small flight of steps takes you into the room at the top of the tower, with its high vaulted ceiling and far-reaching views - perfect as a study, music room or library.
Outside you find wonderful and easily maintained grounds with beautiful mature trees including a magnificent ancient oak, believed to be the oldest in the area. There is also a double garage and studio room, newly built yet in keeping and style of the main residence, with underfloor heating and complete with utility. Now this Manor is ready and awaiting its new guardians, and will truly be a unique place to call home.

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!
