CJ HOLE is offering for sale this 1700s hunting lodge with tower as featured on TV's Grand Designs. 

The Folly, Coed Y Caerau Lane, Kemeys Inferior, Newport has an asking price of £1,795,000 - and is featured in this week's new-look Property Focus pull-out, free with Thursday's Argus. 

The property is set in 24 acres and includes a pool house, four stables, six bedrooms, a library/cinema room and benefits from breath-taking country views. 

The hunting lodge and tower, known as Kemeys Folly, has been painstakingly renovated with a contemporary 21st 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 en suite bathroom takes up the entire first floor. There are two further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms on the second floor. 
New additions to the building include a good-size open-plan family room, dining room and kitchen-breakfast room, a play room-bedroom, two bedrooms and two en suite bathrooms. 

At the very top of the tower there is a roof terrace offering views of the surrounding countryside. 

Situated in between the country lanes between Langstone and 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.
With so much land, outdoor living must be a pleasure at Kemeys Folly. Summer barbecues can be held in front of the dramatic building and children would love to run on the grassy areas.

There are 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 and amenities. 

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.

The property combines both historic and functional contemporary living and is situated on an elevated and level ridge with breathtaking 360° views taking in nine counties.
