For the past decade, 95 St John's Road has been a labour of love for its current owners. And one lucky buyer will benefit from the devotion that has gone into making this 1930's detached property a first-rate family home.

To enhance the charms of an older-style property, feature fireplaces have been installed, wooden floors fitted and ceilings replaced. Offset against this traditional backdrop is a stylish modern kitchen and family bathroom, resulting in a seamless blend of character and contemporary.

The ample driveway and original stained glass in the entrance porch give a striking first impression.

Inside, the main lounge features classic teak parque flooring, an attractive open fireplace and double-glazed bay window.

To the rear is the heart of the home — a large open plan kitchen and dining room, with a wood burning stove set under an oak mantle, on a polished concrete hearth. There is plenty of room to add comfy seating, as well as a dining table, making it a sociable area for entertaining or relaxing with the family.

The contemporary kitchen has a range of immaculate high-gloss units with stylish Corian worktops and a Rayburn range cooker. There is also the added bonus of integrated appliances.

A separate utility room includes the same style units, plus access to the garage and garden.

Despite being within a ten minute walk of Newport town centre, you could be forgiven for thinking you're way out in the sticks when you take a look out of the rear aspect windows, with extensive views over St George's Down.

The large rear garden is well tended and interspersed with borders, while a substantial paved patio is the perfect place to soak up the sunshine and enjoy the tranquility of this spot.

Completing the downstairs accommodation is a versatile room, suitable for use as a study, home office or hobby room.

Upstairs, you have four well-presented bedrooms, decorated in muted modern hues. The property boasts an en-suite bath and shower to the master bedroom, as well as a separate family bathroom.

Unique selling point: Flawlessly blending classic and contemporary, this rare treat of a property offers something for all tastes, while impressive country views hold no clue to being an easy walk from Newport town centre.
