These are some of the stunning homes now available in an exclusive, award-winning development built by Freeman Homes in the sought-after Wye Valley in Ross-on-Wye.

Just an hour’s drive from Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol and Cheltenham, The Avenue features four contemporary houses, two well designed lodges and three beautiful apartments in a converted Victorian house.

They are the type of homes that are ordinarily seen in the city, and bring something completely different to the area.

Two of the houses have already been snapped up along with two of the apartments.

Luke Freeman, joint chief executive of the MF Freeman Group, said: “We wanted to bring contemporary designed homes to the country for people who appreciate contemporary design and want to remain living in the area, or can’t afford to live in the city.

“These homes offer the ultimate in modern living, the specification is fantastic.

“We’ve had great feedback.”

The two houses remaining feature four double bedrooms – all with en-suite facilities, built-in wardrobes and plenty of storage.

The generously sized kitchens are fully fitted and feature high gloss cabinets with quartz worktops and Quooker boiling water taps.

The large open plan living spaces have double sided wood burners and dining areas with bi-fold doors bringing the outdoors inside.

And to ensure the quality continued outside, Freeman Homes commissioned garden designer Cheryl Cummings, from Monmouth, to landscape the gardens.

Cheryl worked with the large glass windows of the modern living space, giving the unique and contemporary property a country feel.

Each home also has a private driveway with gated entrance.

The two contemporary single level two-bedroom lodges boast the same high specification and modern features which Freeman Homes have put into the houses.

They each comprise an open plan living/ dining area, a master bedroom with an en-suite and a fully fitted kitchen with high gloss cabinets and quartz worktops.

The Avenue was recently awarded the Bronze award for WhatHouse? Development of the Year – the largest and most prestigious awards in the UK housebuilding industry.

The judging panel were impressed with the small but exciting development, and congratulated Freeman Homes on its innovation and quality.

Rupert Bates, host of the Awards and editorial director of new homes portal whathouse.com, said: “The standards achieved by the winners get more impressive every year, and our panel of independent judges had to work hard to pick the very best from hundreds of entries.”

One of the first residents to move into the development agreed.

Mr and Mrs Dryden, who relocated from Leicester to The Avenue in January, said: “Quality is at the forefront of Freeman Homes builds. They have a genuine concern for their customer, they exude goodwill and couldn’t have done a better job.”
