Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Halt is a truly unique property. It is set in a location that derives its name from originally being a stop on the Severn & Wye railway, which was authorized by Parliament in 1809. The Scandinavian style architecture of the building is enhanced by the pleasing woodland setting and sylvan outlook. An example of the imaginative and contemporary internal design is the addition of an impressive vaulted double height living room with overhead adjustable light panel and mezzanine platform, a stunning space. There are a further three comfortable reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room, four bedrooms with potential for seven and three bathrooms in the main dwelling. A separate detached building is home to the first floor gym complex with a double garage below. There is also substantial timber workshop/garage. A fantastic individual family home, in a delightful location steeped in the history of the Forest.

There is gated access either end of the garden. The timber workshop is positioned alongside the main entrance. The raised area to the left was the site of the original platform. The garden is completely organic. It is mainly laid to grass and made private by a variety of mature shrubs and trees including apple, cherry, plum and ginko. There is a raised veranda on the house and gym. Doors from the living room and dining room open out onto the rear patio which is shaded by a mature wisteria intertwined with honeysuckle, clematis and rambling rose. There is a lovely view of the church tower from this position. From the second entrance you can access the footpath down to the village.

From the main road through Upper Lydbrook turn into Church Road opposite the Jovial Colliers village pub. Follow the road up the hill. On the bend opposite the Church turn left into the drive of The Halt.
