The Story 
The hunting lodge and tower - known as Kemeys Folly has been painstakingly renovated with a contemporary twenty-first century extension added. When describing the outcome of the project, presenter Kevin McCloud, said: "They chose the difficult route - the double jeopardy route in this case - of both restoration and new building. They commissioned some architecture and bought back to life a local landmark. The result is first-class really." The original tower now contains a hidden library-cinema room on the ground floor. The master suite with sitting platform, dressing room and ensuite bathroom takes up the entire first floor. There are two further bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms on the second floor. New additions to the building include a huge open-plan family room, dining room and kitchen-breakfast room, a play room-bedroom, two bedrooms and two ensuite bathrooms. At the very top of the tower there is a roof terrace offering breathtaking views of the surroun (truncated)

Setting The Scene 
Despite the prominent positioning of Kemeys Folly its private countryside location ensures passers-by are blissfully unaware of this wonderful property. Situated in-between the country lanes between Langstone and historic Caerleon, the property is accessed via remote double gates leading to a generous parking area. The Folly's striking beauty is apparent upon entering into the grounds with sweeping panoramic views. From the parking area the principle residence, stables, pool house, boiler room are easily accessible.

Ancient Woodland 
With so much land, outdoor living is an immense pleasure at Kemey's Folly. Summer barbecues are held in front of the dramatic building and children would love to run on the grassy areas. Lovely woodland walks, where there are lots of wildlife, including deer. The Usk Valley Walk takes you right past the Follys woodland. Despite its very natural surroundings, the property enjoys good access to Bristol, Cardiff, the M4 and London and it takes just 15 minutes to get into Newport, with its supermarkets and shopping areas.

Accommodation 
Kemeys Folly is a Grade II Listed former hunting lodge with origins dating back to circa 1712. The Folly was rebuilt in the early 20th Century and converted into a residential dwelling for TE Watson, the High Sherriff of Monmouthshire and has been the home of the present owners for the last five years. However, a remarkable transformation has taken place during their occupancy and Kemeys Folly and its subsequent additions has been the subject of much fascination and media attention. Featured on Channel 4's Grand Designs programme and considered an architectural success, the property combines both historic and functional contemporary living. Designed by award winning architects Davis Sutton, the property incorporates a beautifully appointed and highly specified interior and is situated on an elevated and level ridge with breathtaking 360° views taking in nine counties.
