AThe six-bedroom semidetached property that dates back to the 1500s is currently up for sale with Crook and Blight and has a guide price of PS409,950.

According to the estate agent, the property dates back to the "Elizabethan era and is acknowledged as Newport's oldest surviving residence" - and now you can own this little piece of history.

The family kitchen is with fitted wall and base units, roll-top work surfaces, tiled surrounds, and features one and a half stainless steel drainer sink unit that comes with a with mixer tap.

There are also a four-ring gas hob, a double stainless steel electric oven and a tiled floor.
