VIDEO: Grand Designs renovated folly in Monmouthshire for sale

Are you looking for a historic home with a difference? Kemeys Folly in Monmouthshire could be your dream home. It has had a showbiz past, featuring on an episode of Grand Designs with Kevin McCloud when the current owners completely renovated it. They gutted the historic folly, keeping as many period features as possible, and added a modern wing to the property. Now, Kemeys Folly is on the market and looking for a new owner. Could it be you?


Dating from around the 1700's, and originally a stone built hunting lodge for the Sheriff of Monmouth, the restoration has been combined with cutting edge design via a new glass extension to create what is now a wonderful home.


The living areas, including a 43ft open plan living kitchen, an outstanding master bedroom with huge balcony/terrace, with two further bedrooms in the old building with the remaining bedrooms (6 in all and 5 en-suite) in an exquisite single storey extension with feature glazed corridor. The property also benefits from High Speed Broadband, cinema room and full house entertainment system. In a superb elevated hilltop setting commanding spectacular views over the Vale of Usk.

Outside are formal gardens with panoramic views, a valuable range of outbuildings and stables and a detached leisure building with indoor swimming pool. There are some 24 acres including old woodland and miles of walks and rides in the surrounding countryside.


Although rural and approached off a small country lane the property is also easily accessible. It is under 3 miles from the M4 at The Coldra (Celtic Manor) so is easily accessible to all centres of South East Wales, Cardiff and Bristol. London trains are from Newport or Bristol Parkway, which is just over 20 miles away. There are excellent shopping, sporting and educational facilities close at hand.
