Here is a home which wouldn't look out of place on the French Riviera or appearing in a film of an Agatha Christie or P G Wodehouse novel.

This six-bedroom Art Deco property, which also has a swimming pool, can be found at Bryn Rhedyn, Llanfrechfa, Cwmbran, and is on the market for offers over £800,000.

But this property doesn't date from the 20s or 30s - in fact it was created by architect Colin Morgan only 20 years ago and takes its inspiration from the Art Deco buildings of Miami in the United States of America.
