Mike thinks:
The finish of this cottage is excellent, ready to move into and make your own!

This charming 3-bedroom cottage in Machen has been expertly remodelled and restored to exacting standards by its current owner and sympathetically modernised for family life.

Mike loves:
The period charm paired with modern comforts make for the perfect cosy home.

Extending over 1,340 sq ft, Wyndham Street offers a wealth of carefully preserved original features and welcome new additions that make this a wonderfully unique period home. A wonderful opportunity for a project, this unfinished property has bags of potential.

The handsome stone frontage sits proudly on Wyndham Street, elevated above the
Rhymney valley, benefitting from far reaching views across the rolling Welsh landscape. Across a small front garden with ornamental planting, the front entrance leads directly into a welcoming hallway. It is here where the beautiful quality of light and space in the cottage becomes apparent. An exposed stone wall gives a glimpse of more to come. Stairs with a carpeted runner lead up to the bedrooms.

Internal accommodation encompasses generous living spaces, the main living room is a wonderfully convivial and bright space. The original stone walls have been restored and left exposed; a log burner accented by an exposed oak mantle and stone surround creates the perfect space to hunker down in the evening. With room for both sofas and a dining table, the space is incredibly versatile. The second reception room across the hall is a more formal affair - the floor is carpeted, and the remaining walls have been carefully plastered with
incredible attention to detail.

A soft colour palette and a welcoming log burner complete the space. The cottage enjoys a south facing front aspect which ensures both rooms are bathed in glorious light all day long.
Beautiful flagstone flooring runs through to the kitchen beyond, characterising and unifying the space. Here the attention to detail is clearly present; painted green cabinetry and solid oak block worktops are welcome new embellishments, along with the Belfast sink and industrial copper taps.

Off the kitchen and hallway lies a valuable ancillary space, perfect for use as a home office, and a secondary back door leads out into the rear garden. A useful downstairs bathroom is also tucked away to the rear of the ground floor plan; a traditional style suite and double shower, with exposed stone walls and timber panelling only add to the rustic yet
contemporary vibe.

The charm continues on the first floor which is home to 3 generous double bedrooms, each painted in warm Farrow & Ball tones. The primary bedroom suite spans the depth of the house with a dual aspect over both front and back. The remaining bedrooms are cosy and enjoy the same rural views. In the main bathroom a luxurious claw foot bath sits centre stage, with heated towel rail and high-quality fittings. Encaustic porcelain tiles run underfoot while soft grey panelling lines the walls.

Moving outside, a private driveway to the side provides valuable off-street parking and access to the garden behind. The rear garden in question is sizeable and sloped to the rear, offering a blank canvas to add outdoor seating or even a vegetable patch! The cottage also benefits from a ready-to-go planning permission for a rear extension to maximise the potential living space. We’re imagining floor to ceiling windows and bi-fold doors out into the garden. A fantastic opportunity for new owners to make it their own!

Machen

From the hills...

Machen

Machen is a delightful village nestled in the countryside between Caerphilly and Newport, with a history dating back to the 17th Century. Updates to the local area mean this may be hard to spot, but the slow pace and relaxed living charms you instantly. 
For local walks, head towards the top of Mynydd Machen, which has a peak of 362-metres. 

Footpaths festoon the land and criss-cross the hill, including Rhymney Valley, Ridgeway Walk, the Sirhowy Valley Walk and the Raven Walk. All that walking got your thirst up?
Seasons Coffee House serves amazing coffee and cake, but be quick, it is apparently gaining quite the following, so make sure you get a seat.

Machen Rugby Football Club is your local rugby team to support and has plenty of history. Rugby football was played in Machen from the early 1870s, but Machen RFC can be traced as a playing club from the early 1880s. One of the club’s earliest and most notable players was Frank Purdon, who would later go on to play from Newport and Wales.

For that countryside feeling but still with solid connections, you can head east towards the city of Newport where you can be on the M4 in 20 minutes or head west to Cardiff – a similar distance and time. Newport train station is 15 minutes away, so you can be well on your way to a further afield adventure in no time.

For the little ones, Machen Primary School and the comprehensives in Caerphilly and Bassaleg are great choices when school is in session.

...and beyond!
