Facing due north, on the high side of the street, with a sweep of the road, the playground and a short walk from Newport Public, shops, an organic cafe, the pub and the Marina, this weatherboard clad oldie, sitting on 872sqm, could do with a revival...
Built by War Service Homes in 1957, occupied in 1958, there are a few post-war legacies, but essentially this is a solid house. Well built, with high - 9 foot - ceilings and cypress pine boards under the carpets, which could easily be polished up.
Here's the run...
First, up the hill. Bring flat shoes and your fell-walking experience. Through the tree lined front garden, which shades you from the afternoon sun, and up to the front. There's a pergola overlooking the drive, which has parking for a couple of cars.
The front door opens into a vestibule/dining area, via a small slightly later extension, and then into the lounge. Beyond the lounge, there's a door that opens to an enclosed sun room, and through again to a single semi-enclosed carport. It's got a remote control door, and large enough for a car, and extensive tool collection, plus work station. Head back in, and through to the tidy kitchen, which opens to a rear garden.
There's some great stonework already here, maybe it could do with a bit of landscaping, but it's sunny as and ideal for a veggie garden and drying laundry! Outside, there's a plumbed laundry with a gardeners shower. And a shed. Actually, two sheds.
Back through the main living and there are three large bedrooms, as they should be, all together, with a bathroom. The master has built in wardrobes...it and one other have ceiling fans. They also have (almost brand new) air conditioning, which runs throughout the house. All get the morning sun...Carpeted throughout, this could easily be stripped back, repainted and slightly reconfigured.
Adding fencing along the eastern boundary would increase privacy, and the feel of space that is already here. All in, a great opportunity for someone ready to do a bit of work and think outside the box.
