City Style, Country Living

If you are looking for a contemporary designer home you are more likely to assume you need to head to Cheltenham rather than Ross on Wye but Freeman Homes has recently launched their flagship
development The Avenue, located in one of the most desirable areas of Ross-on-Wye. The properties which were designed by locally based architects RRA offer something completely different for even
the most discerning house hunter.

RRA, whose main office is based in Hereford have designed multiple schemes including prestigious homes in Cheltenham and London and won numerous awards for their cutting edge designs.

“Freeman Homes wanted to create a development which was contemporary in design and left no detail overlooked. The location was ideal for a contemporary design, being a few minutes’ walk
from the town centre while being surrounded by fabulous views. The main house has been designed to sympathetically convert it into three spacious apartments each with its own characteristics.
Whilst the ground floor apartment will have a private entrance and garden the large bay windows and high ceilings will give the living area a feeling of grandeur. The top floor apartment will benefit
from amazing views while offering one bed accommodation with all the quality touches”, says Mark Powles, Director of RRA.

The Avenue is something completely different from anything else available in the area, bringing homes that are ordinarily seen in Cheltenham or Bristol right here to Ross on Wye. “We've had great feedback on the homes we have created at the Avenue. We wanted to bring contemporary design to the country with homes that offer the ultimate in modern living, the specification is fantastic and I am so pleased to be able to bring these homes to Ross on Wye and indeed, the Avenue”, says Luke Freeman, Joint Chief Executive of the MF Freeman Group.

To ensure the designer look continued outside, Freeman Homes commissioned Garden Designer, Cheryl Cummings from Monmouth to design the gardens. Cheryl worked with the large glass windows of the modern living space to help bring the outside in, giving the unique and contemporary property a modern feel by using block planting to complement the external tiling and rendered planters. The garden design ensures that these properties makes the most of the external space and creates a great area for entertaining and relaxing while minimising upkeep and maintenance ensuring time can be spent enjoying living in these homes.

The large open plan living space has floor to ceiling windows making it light, airy and spacious. With a centrally positioned double sided wood burner the living space and dining space is separated. The bi-fold doors expand the dining area opening into the beautifully designed garden. The kitchen is designed to incorporate all the latest gadgets including a built in NEFF coffee machine. The Quooker boiling water tap means you will never have to wait for the kettle to boil and if you have never cooked on an induction hob you will be amazed at the ease and speed, cooking has never been so enjoyable! While the full height dual zone wine fridge will ensure your wine is always served at the perfect temperature.

Upstairs four large bedrooms have a luxurious feel, each with an en suite fitted out with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware and Porcelanosa large format tiles. All bedrooms have plenty of storage and fabulous views across Ross and the surrounding area.

The lodges which are due to be completed this Summer will offer the same meticulous standards but on a smaller scale. Both will have a private entrance and garden and offer city style living in a semi-rural location.

Having such a high specification, homes such as these are rare in the middle of the country side. The Avenue oozes quality offering contemporary style and the highest quality in this beautiful market
town. Fabulous views, local country pubs and walks that you come to love in the country – what better place to live.

Across the site there are 9 properties in total – 4 stunning houses, 3 spacious apartments and 2 modern lodges all offering the ultimate in luxurious living. Homes start at £195,000 - £745,000. The show home is available to view by appointment. To book a viewing call 01989 567900 or email
