MILLFORD LODGE Castleton is a village set on the A48 between Cardiff and Newport therefore boasting a great road infrastructure / network across South Wales and the West Country via the M4 / M5. The Rail Network also makes light work of wider geographical travel with London now being possible in under 2 hours…
The Property itself was built by the current (and only) owner as his own residence, to a specification that surpasses most. The property boasts 1 master bedroom suite, 2 further bedroom suites and a fourth Bedroom / Family Bathroom. Whist downstairs there are 3 individual reception rooms and a cavernous family 'hub of the home' area with Sitting, Dining and kitchen areas. There are also utility and cloak rooms as you would expect…
On entering the reception hallway from the covered porchway the magnitude of the property is immediately evident, the central stair which splits at half landing gives access to the full gallery landing which in turn gives access to all of the upper floor rooms.
Outside the property is accessed via a pair of feature electric gates giving way to a generous block paved driveway with well planted raised borders which afford a level of privacy. There is a large double garage with electric entry and a side pedestrian door. Stairs inside the pedestrian door give access to the large versatile space above which has had various uses over the years (Gym / Home Office / Hobbies etc).
To the rear is a large raised patio area which 'via steps' open to the extensive lawned and planted gardens with varied established trees and a lovely decked area for quiet reflection.
Truly a family home and a half… The expanse of space and dimension of all areas will I'm sure impress. And if a large private garden is on your wish list then so should this house be!

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE AGENT.. Over the years I've seen lots of executive homes around the city, this one has captivated me and was clearly designed for a family who enjoyed time together and apart (Told by the wonderful communal family areas and the size of the personal spaces too). It has been loved by its one family owner from build and is now ready for a new family / owners to come and make it theirs, to add their stamp 'as we all do'.
