Property SummaryApproached by a sweeping tree lined drive, Goytre Hall is a substantial Grade II Listed country house, probably of Jacobean/Caroline origin, with Victorian alterations and additions, and a further extension in the 1920s.
Goytre Hall is believed to stand on the site of an earlier medieval house, once home to Thomas Herbert, son of the first Earl of Pembroke. Now in need of updating throughout, the house stands in approximately 8 acres (3.2 hectares) of grounds incorporating large formal areas with sweeping lawns, naturalised woodland, swimming and ornamental pools, orchard, vegetable garden, grassland, ponds and a small stream, all offering a high degree of seclusion.
Constructed of local sandstone with Forest of Dean stone and brick dressings under a slate roof, Goytre Hall offers extensive principal accommodation over three floors with significant secondary accommodation both in the main house and in and around the service block, consisting of a complementary range of buildings attractively grouped around a central courtyard entered through a porte cochere.
The house contains a wealth of period features including splendid exposed timber beams, wooden panelling, early timber floors, panelled doors, inglenook and other period fireplaces, fitted bookcases and dressers and much more. Some of the materials are believed to have been brought from now vanished houses in Abergavenny and Herefordshire. Many of the windows are original leaded windows set into stone casements.
Whilst now in need of updating throughout, the Hall and its buildings offer the opportunity to create a truly outstanding country home, The main house has circa 7500 sq ft/ 714 sq m of living accommodation located over three floors.
The outbuildings extend to circa 5000 sq ft/470 sq m and include a three bed- roomed housekeeper’s cottage and a separate first floor apartment. This ancillary accommodation may provide opportunities for multi-generational occupation, business or leisure use or income, by way of holiday lets (subject to any necessary planning consents).
Enter via the solid wooden front door to the entrance hall leading to an impressive reception hall with panelled walls and a splendid fireplace. The morning room is to the left of the reception hall with leaded windows to the front elevation, the room has many features including a open fireplace. To the right of the reception hall is the magnificent drawing room with deep bay window, with window seat, overlooking the gardens. A dining room, with windows to the front, gives access to the wine cellar.
Between the drawing room and reception hall is an attractive garden room with doors opening onto the garden. The kitchen lies to the rear of the house with a spacious pantry/cold room to one side. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a laundry room, boot room and WC.
As is traditional of the period, Goytre Hall is served by two staircases. To the first floor are six bedrooms ranging from single rooms to the spacious Principal bedroom suite, with fireplace and views across the grounds. To complement the bedrooms are four bathrooms/en-suites. To the front elevation is a splendid triple aspect room, presently a study, with log burning stove.
A wooden spiral staircase leads to the second floor where a further two spacious en-suite bedrooms are located, one with a superb bay window and fireplace. Off the ground floor laundry room is a stone staircase rising to a separate flat, once occupied by the gardener.
The gardens at Goytre Hall are quite spectacular. Standing in around eight acres, the gardens and grounds comprise: formal lawned gardens, box hedges, specimen trees, paddock and meadow, ornamental water feature and an attractive terrace to the rear. Beyond the lawns is a walled garden and terrace, beyond which is the swimming pool and pool house. A tree lined driveway, flanked by lawns, continues to a gravel parking area to the front of the house. Adjoining the parking area are two large ponds with an abundance of water lilies and wildlife.
A second driveway to the rear provides access to the outbuildings and yard. A small piece of land on the opposite side of the road is included within the sale.
The outbuildings extend to circa 5000 sq ft/470 sq m and include a three bedroomed housekeeper’s cottage and a separate first floor apartment. This ancillary accommodation may provide opportunities for multi-generational occupation, business or leisure use or income, by way of holiday lets (subject to any necessary planning consents).
