Battledown is one of Cheltenhams most desirable residential locations and hugely sought after. The private and gated estate is beautifully maintained with high calibre houses set on tree lined roads all fronted by manicured verges. Built for the gentry in circa 1859, the estate is characterised by its impressive homes set within spacious plots and enjoying some of the most enviable views in Cheltenham. Much of the charm of Battledown is due to its peaceful setting with easy access to some of the most beautiful riding and walking countryside. Yet its real appeal is the proximity to Cheltenhams stylish centre, Skyview House is within walking distance to Cheltenhams fashionable shops, Michelin starred restaurants, salons and bars. Less than a hundred miles from London, Cheltenham nestles beautifully between the Cotswold Hills and the Wye Valley, and is home to numerous prestigious schools including Cheltenham College, The Cheltenham Ladies College, and Dean Close. Owing to this and the cultural lifestyle on offer, including playing hosts to several highly-acclaimed festivals, it is now regarded as one of the places to live and raise a family.
