A GWENT farmhouse dating back centuries is currently on the market – and it has a lot going for it.

Brought to market earlier this week, the farmhouse is located in Lower Machen – a small hamlet to the west of Newport.

As a result, it offers countryside living and views, while remaining close to all the city amenities.

The property itself is a 200-year plus farmhouse, though it has also quite recently been modernised and extended.

Currently on the market for £1,300,000, it is certainly steep, but there is plenty to like about it all the same.

Brought to market by Doorsteps.co.uk, you can find out what’s so great about this property below.

What’s so special about this one?

The farmhouse in Lower Machen is home to five bedrooms and four bathrooms, though that’s not all.

According to the selling agent, it is located in “a perfect Welsh countryside haven with breath-taking views and is an oasis of calm and natural beauty.”

Having been renovated recently, the property is home to modern fixtures and fittings, while retaining original features.

For example, it has a modern central heating system and underfloor heating, but metre thick stone walls and wood burning stoves, an open fire, and an aga ensure that the house stays toasty warm.

Inside, there are two kitchens, and, of the five bedrooms, two come complete with en-suite bathrooms.

All five bedrooms are doubles too, and one thing is for certain, there is no shortage of space.

Some of the most appealing features about this property though, can be found outside.

Set out on three-and-a-half acres of land, there are well maintained gardens, and a large space which can be used as either a field or a paddock.

And, if a paddock takes the new owner’s fancy, there is helpfully, already a stable block.

For motor enthusiasts, there is a double garage, and plenty of room for outdoor parking too.

Beyond the property borders, there are said to be impressive views over the Rhymney Valley from the village of Draethen all the way to Caerphilly and the mountains of the Brecon Beacons beyond.
