Aptly located in Marvel Lane, Kendal House is indeed a property to be marvelled at.

From the captivating first impression through the double wrought iron gates, to its welcoming entrance hall, this promises to be a dream home.

Here, you are only a short drive from Newport, yet Marvel Lane feels delightfully off the beaten track. The views from the first-floor rear balcony are second to none when it comes to country landscapes, where you can blissfully watch the seasons unfold.

If you can tear yourself away from those gaze-worthy views, the accommodation is both generous and versatile, where a big family will appreciate the breathing space.

Downstairs, the large drawing room (approximately 20ft by 18ft) is a comfy place to relax, with a window seat where you can enjoy more lovely rural views to the fields opposite. There is an attractive stone fireplace with a multi-fuel stove and glazed French doors to the sun room with its beautiful garden aspect. The adjacent garden room is a bright, attractive room overlooking a pretty courtyard area.

Kendal House is a charming maze of rooms, with the bonus of another large room off the drawing room (approximately 16ft by 15ft), which is used as a snug but could easily function as another bedroom.

A separate study room and downstairs cloakroom are off the hallway, and then you get to the impressive kitchen/breakfast room, with space for a table and chairs. There are a good range of oak-fronted wall and base units, tiled walls and a built-in fridge and dishwasher. The front facing dining room is another ample room, where you'll have plenty of space for family gatherings. The downstairs bedroom to the rear will be handy for such occasions too, with its own back door out to the patio and a shower room which can also be accessed from the rear lobby.

The first floor houses the large bathroom, three double bedrooms as well as a single room, with the spacious master bedroom having its own ensuite.
