Lower Machen Lower Machen, Newport Wales NP10
DescriptionA perfect Welsh countryside haven with breathtaking views.
The house is an oasis of calm and natural beauty, feeling completely rural, but it is just 15 minutes drive from Junction 28 of the M4, from Cardiff Gate Business Park and from the shops and facilities of Risca, Newport and Caerphilly.
Beautifully modernised with attention to detail, this lovely old farmhouse oozes charm and character. The house is set in grounds of approximately 3 1/2 acres with a stable block, field or paddock and truly wonderful designed and maintained gardens. The house is approached by a private and dedicated lane which, in the spring, is decorated by thousands of daffodils.
Protected by exterior walls which are approaching a metre thick, the rooms are warm and generously proportioned. Aside from the central heating, the sitting room is warmed by a wood burning stove, the dining room by an open fire and the large, quality fitted kitchen/breakfast room has a double Aga and underfloor heating to contend with even the coldest of Welsh winters.
The house is completed with a second kitchen, five double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms, a large family bathroom and a downstairs toilet. There is a double garage and stable block and outbuildings with further potential. There is parking for many cars.
The gardens are magnificent; hundreds of metres of natural stone low walls creating separate outdoor 'rooms' in which extensive lawns, terraces, natural pools, wildflower meadows, orchard and barbecue areas offer every type of outdoor beauty and enjoyment. The views over the Rhymney Valley from the village of Draethen all the way to Caerphilly and the mountains of the Brecon Beacons beyond are literally breathtaking. Surrounded by great country walks, this property has not only been a wonderful home but offers a lifestyle many only dream about. Bassaleg High School, which is designated 'outstanding' by Estyn, is close by.
A viewing is highly advised to appreciate this unique and beautiful home.
