A rare opportunity to purchase a truly historic eight bedroomed stone built residence in the heart of the Roman town of Caerleon. Fine and Country Newport and Usk are delighted to act on behalf of the owners in the sale of ‘The Mynde House’ once owned by John Jenkins the Master of Ponthir Iron Works who, following the Chartist uprising in Newport, built a large wall some 12 metres x 6 metres to protect his property in 1839. The fortress like appearance pays respect to the Castle mound, a large Norman Motte within the enclosure. This historic wall is Grade II listed and predominantly constructed of local red sandstone. The plaque mounted on the wall at the side of Mynde House commemorates the Chartist movement.

The house, whilst being modernised to offer all modern comforts, boasts many original features tastefully incorporated throughout. The vast accommodation comprises entrance vestibule, hallway, cellar, sitting room, formal dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory/garden room, living room, study, cloakroom, boot room, bar, sun room/second conservatory, laundry room, utility, eight bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms, three shower rooms and a further bathroom. There is a private driveway providing ample parking and a three bay car port together with a beautiful private landscaped garden with pool. Only by viewing the property will you truly appreciate the grandeur of this magnificent home.

The town of Caerleon itself is recognised for its historically important Roman Fortress and Baths which makes it popular with tourists. Today it is home to numerous small businesses, many of which are near the small common at its centre. The area offers excellent primary and secondary schools, good health care facilities and numerous pubs and restaurants.
