Highbury house & coach house
Recently renovated and refurbished to a high standard, this is a fine opportunity to acquire a period family home of character and to enjoy a very substantial subsidiary income from up to five outstanding self-contained holiday flats. Equally, as now, one or more of the flats would also be ideal for an elderly relative or family member.

The very attractive period house is Grade II listed and has an impressive entrance hall, three fine reception rooms, breakfast kitchen with 'Aga', cloakroom, utility and cellar. Upstairs are four bedrooms together with an independent self-contained apartment with interconnecting door and its own private external entrance.

The four remaining holiday lets are contained within a Victorian (circa 1850) stone fronted two storey coach house. Again, all recently refurbished to a high standard. This appealing two storey building provides three two bed flats and a one bed, all of immense character and most with private terrace enjoying the view. Occupancy rates are excellent and with only four of the five units currently let for holidays there is potential to improve on the already substantial £52,000 gross annual income (we are advised by the vendors that the holiday lets benefit from small business relief and, therefore, do not pay rates per se) ( / ).

The main house has been rewired, replumbed and has a new central heating system and boiler. The Coach House has also been rewired.

The property is well situated close to the tourist centres of Forest of Dean and enjoys superb views from an elevated setting over the nearby town of Lydney and the Severn Vale to the distant Cotswolds. Within Lydney are a comprehensive range of shops, schools and a railway station on the Cardiff/Gloucester line. Chepstow and The Severn Bridge (M48) are within 10 miles. The property is therefore easily accessible and the letting units are ideally situated for touring both The Forest of Dean and Lower Wye Valley.
