A magical setting with 360 views taking in many historic landmarks. Within the proximity there are a wide variety of amenities including excellent transport links for road, rail and air. These include M4 motorway access to London and South Wales, mainline train stations located in Newport and Bristol and two international airports in Cardiff and Bristol.

For sporting endeavours the nearby Celtic Manor, host of the recent Ryder Cup, offers world class golf and also includes health and leisure facilities. Equestrians will enjoy the immediate grounds as well as bridle paths that run close by with access to Wentwood Forest. Rougemont, a private independent school is located just 15 minutes away with nearby Monmouth also offering quality independent schooling for boys and girls. A further array of independent schools are also available in both Bristol and Cardiff.


A remarkable transformation has taken place during the present owners 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. Enjoying an east-west orientation, the outlook includes the Severn Estuary and North Somerset to the front, with the Usk Valley and the Brecon Beacons to the rear.

There are 24 acres of historic woodland and pasture offered with the property, including the prerequisite equestrian facilities as well as formal gardens, terraces and a swimming pool complex that requires some attention, but would add further value.
The significant footprint offers excellent versatility with live/work opportunities and the open plan areas provide superb entertaining space, yet still affording intimacy with the cinema room/library and additional reception room. The current arrangement features three high quality bedrooms within the main body of the Folly, including a master suite with dressing room, en-suite and large sun terrace offering an outstanding vista. The two remaining bedrooms also both have en suite facilities.

The principal living areas and remaining bedrooms are contained within the ground floor of the Folly and the newly constructed wings. These elements include underfloor heating with Pilkington K Glass windows and a high quality cinema room and audio/video entertainment system that is available throughout the whole house, including the historic Folly.


Exit the M4 at junction 24 and take the A48 towards Langstone/Chepstow. After approximately 0.5 miles turn left into Catsash Road, continue over the mini roundabout and turn right at the T junction at the end of this road. Go up a steep hill and take the second left signposted to Coed Y Caerau and continue on this lane for approximately 1 mile where Kemeys Folly can be found on the left hand side.
