Riverside House is a substantial Georgian property located along the banks of the Black Oak River in Newport. This stunning residence dates back to 1836 and has been carefully restored and modernised in recent years, blending old-world charm with modern living. This period residence boasts 5 bedrooms, landscaped mature gardens, a Coach House and Shepherd's Hut which, offers huge potential for a new owner with four of these unique rooms currently used by the vendors for their Guest House. Main Residence The main house has a total floor area of approximately 316.3 sqm / 3,404.27 sqft over two floors. The house is filled with natural light enhancing original period features throughout, including ceiling cornicing with central rose, original doors, ornate marble and stone fireplaces, tesselated tiling in the entrance hall to name a few. Exposed natural stone walls and wooden lintels in the dining room, kitchen and main bathroom are further examples of these features. These thoughtful nods to the past accentuate the history and beauty throughout the home. The living room is complimented by its high ceilings and dual-aspect double glazed sash windows framed by shutters, which feature in many of the rooms. The five bedrooms (two en-suite) are all bright and offer a mix of river and garden views. The current owners added the lobby/games room and the Orangery as additional guest space, utilising all the rooms in the property to their best potential. Coach House The original Coach House (23.5 sqm / 253.27 sqft) has been converted into a unique one bedroom studio with private entrance and courtyard. The studio has a custom-made feature mezzanine bunkbed, wood fire antique stove and en-suite shower room. This property is currently being utilised as guest accommodation but could easily be used as staff quarters. Utility and Plant Room The utility room (13.5 sqm / 145 sqm) is plumbed for a washer and a dryer with a laundry sink. The Plant Room (20.9 sqm / 225 sqft) houses state of the art Huawei solar panel system with 20 kw battery. This system substantially reduces the running costs of the property. Shepherds Hut Shepherds Hut (8.6m/92.63sqft) is a very romantic one-bedroom Vardo, otherwise known as a house on wheels that is used as part of the guest accommodation. It is located on the grounds of Riverside House with a small balcony to the front to sit and enjoy the sounds of nature and the Blackoak River. Internally, there is a built in raised double bed with underneath storage and a small solid fuel stove. Garden The property sits on a site of approximately 2.25acres, which courts the Newport River to the left hand side. The gardens are very private and offer numerous attractive features including a walled garden area, raised beds and many mature native tree species, to name but a few. The Courtyards have been designed with gravel paths and paving, making it an idea area to relax or entertain guests. Most of the garden to the side of the house gives plenty of space for play areas and include a children's playhouse, swings and slides. It is a perfect location to grow your own produce. Lavish green shrubs form a lush backdrop, providing privacy and creating a serene haven. With beautiful flowers including Peonie Roses, Arum Lilly, Wisteria, Hydrangea, Magnolia and orchards containing apple, plum and cherry trees, this garden invites you to immerse yourself in the tranquility of nature, offering a sanctuary for relaxation with the sounds of wildlife and the Black Oak River in the background.
