Situated in a popular road on the outskirts of Newport, this detached bungalow has far more to it than first meets the eye.

As well as the living room, dining room, three bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom, there is an extra reception room, which could have a multitude of uses.

The flexible layout at 40 Shide Road is just one of the reasons this property will have wide appeal.

Young families will have room to grow (that spare reception room could easily make a bedroom), as well as a garden to play in, while the older generation will appreciate the luxury of having spare bedrooms for guests, as well as space for a hobby room or small and cosy sitting room.

The garden is large enough to be interesting for keen gardeners, yet small enough to be easily managed, with plenty of lawn at the front and the rear.

There is a garden shed for the tools and mature shrubs and trees around the borders.

Enticing for buyers of all ages will be the bungalow’s excellent decorative order, plus its proximity to Newport town centre.

Whether you are after a choice of local schools, shops or places to eat out, Shide Road ticks all the boxes.

You enter the home through the uPVC double-glazed front door and step into the L-shaped reception hall.

Doors lead off to the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of timeless cream-coloured floor and wall units, with stylish wooden worksurfaces.

Appliances include an inset oven and gas hob, with an extractor unit, plus a built-in fridge and freezer. A door leads to the side of the property.

The living room is a generous size, measuring approximately 19ft by 11ft. The focal point is the lovely open fireplace with stone surround.

Double-glazed French doors provide plenty of natural light and lead to the rear patio and garden.

There is an archway through to the dining room, again light-filled thanks to dual-aspect windows. There is ample space for a table and chairs.

A door leads off to the very useful extra reception room (or fourth bedroom).

Bedroom one is a good-sized 12ft by 11ft and has one whole wall of fitted wardrobes.

Bedroom two is another double bedroom with a front aspect, while bedroom three is a smaller room, again with a front aspect.

The family bathroom has a classic white suite, with a shower over the bath, hand basin and low level WC. There are useful storage cupboards and a heated towel rail.

An extra bonus at this surprisingly spacious property is the garage, with power and light, and a driveway providing the all-essential off-road parking.
