Dilapidated property offers family a slice of the park life

A dilapidated house in one of the most desirable locations in Newport has come on the market but you’ll need to roll up your sleeves before you move in.

The semi detached property, at 211 Christchurch Road,  in the  Beechwood area of Newport, right opposite the city’s Beechwood Park, has been empty for years.

The house, which is being sold by Paul Fosh Auctions, now needs complete renovation but offers huge potential.

Gemma Vaughan, of Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions, said: “This type of original unimproved home seldom comes on the market. It’s a true gem. We’re expecting keen interest in the property due to its size, condition, potential and brilliant location, opposite the park.

“This substantial freehold property offers a truly fantastic opportunity for someone to acquire a home in a marvellous location in Newport on Christchurch Road right opposite Beechwood Park gates.

” The four to five bedroom property requires complete renovation throughout but does offer huge potential. It would make an ideal family home as it is very spacious  has off road parking with garage and a lovely, large rear garden.”

The property is listed with a guide price of £229,000-plus.

The next Paul Fosh Auctions online sale, when this property among some eighty others will be offered for sale,  starts at 12 noon on Tuesday, April 27 and ends from 5pm on Thursday, April 29.
