Welsh Homes property of the week is a cottage full of character

The substantial five-bedroom  character property in  Coedkernew, near Newport, is  believed to have once formed  part of Lord Tredegar’s estate. As  its name suggests, this charming  cottage was the residence of the  head butler.

To the front of the home,  there is a sweeping twin-gated  drive with ample parking.

The garden boasts pretty border planting, hedging and established trees, whilst to the side  there is an additional large secure gated parking bay.

Internally, the property has  rustic charm combined with  contemporary lifestyle.
