There’s something satisfying about being close to a main town yet feeling as though you can instantly get away from it all.

Number 68 Watergate Road certainly has that pleasure, situated in one of Newport’s most prestigious areas, yet with the countryside on its doorstep.

Another bonus this close to the centre of town is this detached home comes with off-road parking and an integral garage.

As you survey the property from the drive, you will notice the extension, which forms the open-plan living area and really sets this home apart from the average dwelling.

Much of the ground floor accommodation has been remodelled and the entrance hall, living area, kitchen and cloakroom all include luxurious underfloor heating and wood-effect laminate flooring.

The newly fitted kitchen is pleasingly contemporary, with Silestone worktops and white base and wall units, plus integrated appliances and a breakfast bar.

The kitchen is open plan to a bright and airy breakfast room, with French doors leading to the rear garden.

The main living area is reached via the other side of the kitchen, and is a truly fantastic room, measuring approximately 22ft by 16ft.

You’ll have ample space for a three-piece suite, plus a six-seat dining table and chairs.

There are double-glazed French doors and same-height windows at both ends of the room, so you have a front and rear aspect, leading to the gardens. Additional mod-cons include built-in surround sound.

Bedroom four, a well-appointed utility room (fitted with the old kitchen units) and the cloakroom complete the accommodation on this level, with a door off the utility room to the integral garage.

Upstairs are three further bedrooms, which all capitalise on the wonderful countryside views. There is also a family bathroom, with white suite and a shower over the bath.

The rear garden is another pleasant surprise at this property.

It is contained by tall hedges and the odd tree and backs onto open fields to give a very rural feel.

A summerhouse sits at the top of the garden and is the perfect place to relax. It would also make a great hobby room or playhouse for children.

There is a paved patio area along the length of the house, which will be well used in barbecue season.

A smaller garden at the front of the property is mainly laid to lawn.

The garage incorporates ample workshop space.
