Newport is a city in Wales; it is situated on the River Usk and is 12 miles northeast of Cardiff. Newport is the third largest city in Wales.
Newport has recently been named as the 3rd best place to live in the UK, offering enviable views and gently rolling hills. The high-street features Victorian buildings with all the shops, eateries and takeaways you’d expect to find on a high-street. There has been some redevelopment in recent years; £100 million was spent on developing Friars Walk, a retail and leisure scheme that opened in 2015.
There is a good selection of baes, restaurants and entertainment venues including; theatres, cinemas and a bowling alley. If you like to get outdoors then the Brecon Beacons is only 30 minutes away, as is the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding National Beauty.
Houdini got in trouble in Newport. The most famous magician that ever lived had a love for Newport, Wales. He started his very first international tour in Newport in 1905. Houdini may not have been the most popular with the local police, as he showed them up by escaping, completely naked, from the cells. He returned a few years later and jumped handcuffed from Newport Bridge, thousands of people descended on the city to watch him. After all this, Houdini was summonsed to appear in front of the magistrate for obstructing a public highway, but he walked away without even a fine.
We used RE/MAX for the sale of our property. RE/MAX was very helpful from start to finish, always there at the end of the phone when needed. Always chasing for updates. They have been truly amazing! Their costs are also very good value for money when you consider the service they provide. I would highly recommend!
We recently sold our house with RE/MAX and are so happy with the service we have received. Our house sold in a matter of days, which is amazing, and Shaun has been contactable at all times for any questions we have. We would definitely recommend using RE/MAX to anyone we know who is thinking of moving home.
Great service, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Great experience. Thanks for finding us our dream home.
A very friendly, in-depth market appraisal. Lots of information was provided about the reason for the valuation and advice on what improvements should or shouldn’t be made if planning to sell the house soon. Overall a very helpful guide on what our house is currently worth. If we decide to sell we would definitely use RE/MAX.
