The Property
Halfway House has an interesting history. It is believed to date back well over two hundred years. During the early years of the 18th century was a Coaching Inn serving passengers and accommodating horses on the only route that then existed between Worcester and Hereford. During the mid 1900's it was a pottery but in more recent years Halfway House was converted into a traditional detached house that now offers flexible and spacious family accommodation.

On the ground floor this includes a dining hall, a large drawing room, an equally large open plan kitchen/family room (with dining area), a utility room, a sitting room, a study that can double as a fifth bedroom when needed and a good size bathroom with WC. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room. The house also has oil fired central heating and double glazed windows.

The property stands in a good size level and fully enclosed garden with a pair of double gates opening on to a driveway

There is a great opportunity to develop the former stable block. This is a traditional two storey brick dwelling which offers potential for conversion into further accommodation as a self contained annex (perhaps for paying guests or elderly relatives) or possibly even for office use (subject of to planning consent).

Halfway House enjoys an elevated position on the top of Fromes Hill which as the name of the property implies marks the halfway distance between the cities of Worcester and Hereford, both of which are approximately thirteen miles away. The village forms a small scattered community on the borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire approximately a mile from Bishops Frome which offers a limited choice of amenities. The market town of Ledbury and the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern are both approximately eight miles away. Malvern has a comprehensive choice of shops and banks, supermarkets and leisure facilities. Both towns also have mainline railway stations and four miles to the south of Ledbury is the nearest junction with the M50 motorway. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is about fourteen miles. Primary schooling is available in several local village locations. There are excellent secondary schools at Ledbury (John Masefield High School) and Bromyard (Queen Elizabeth Humanities College). Sports academies are available in Hereford and Hartbury.

The village is located in some of the most beautiful countryside in the area so this is the perfect spot for anyone who enjoys country pursuits or walking.
