There's a lot to say about number 1, Bull's Gate, as this affordably priced property offers incredible value for money. Located in the semi-rural outskirts of Newport, in Forest Road, the first thing you notice are the gardens. Bordered by hedgerows and mature trees to the rear, there is a very sheltered feel to the garden so you can enjoy sunny hot-spots in the summer.

Park the car in the private parking area and take a look at the glorious country aspect — the elevated position offers far-reaching views across open fields and farmland. From here, it's hard to believe you are only a very short drive from the heart of Newport, with all its supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants. It's also within walking distance of the local primary school, so there's no need to jump in the car for the school run.

The accommodation is beautifully presented throughout, making it a new owner's dream as there are no pressing DIY jobs to tackle.

The heart of the home is the lovely, light open-plan lounge and kitchen area — a huge space where the whole family can relax together. Cream fronted kitchen units and plenty of open shelving add cottage-style character, as does the rustic wooden floor. A bank of windows run the length of the kitchen area and there are large windows in the lounge area too. There is also space for a desk under the stairs, so this otherwise dead space can be turned into a home office or study area.

In addition to this spacious family room, there is the bonus of a separate dining room, a utility room with adjacent storage room, and a handy downstairs WC.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is beautifully presented, with a wallpapered feature wall, neutral carpet and a useful hand-basin. Bedroom two is another large double room, while the third bedroom is a generous single. The family bathroom on this level features a white suite, with buttermilk coloured tongue-and-groove panelling.
