An exciting development/restoration opportunity.
Located in one of the most prestigious parts of Prestbury village is this substantial detached property offering a rare opportunity to modernise and re-model or (subject to the usual planning consents) completely re-develop the site.
Hill Cottage is a rare property to come to the open market as it is one of the few remaining dwellings and sites in the locality that provides a great opportunity to either modernise and re-style the existing 2185 sq ft living space and garaging, or to seek planning to re-develop the site completely. We believe that the property is a Colt House https://colthouses.co.uk/ a company renowned for building the highest quality timber framed buildings for the last 100 years from renewable materials. The accommodation of Hill Cottage is arranged on one floor, with a well planned, spacious and light layout that takes in both the garden and open views to the rear and the stunning view up to Cleeve Hill to the front. Of particular note is the orientation of the site which faces due south to the rear so again, subject to planning, the existing accommodation could be extended to provide further impressive living rooms and bedrooms that would enjoy the exceptional aspect.
Hill Cottage stands on a level site extending to circa 0.45 of an acre. Access to the property is via a private gated entrance opening up to a large parking area and the double garage. The garden is arranged to the rear and extends the full width of the property and beyond, enclosed to the front by close board fencing. Mainly arranged to lawn, the plot enjoys exceptional privacy with the adjoining homes well screened by mature planted boundaries. The aspect from the whole plot is very open, with fields to the front bordered by hedgerow, rising up to the stunning escarpment and to the rear, across the ha ha, the view is to an open piece of land. We highly recommend anyone seeking a development opportunity to view Hill Cottage and we are commencing viewings on Friday 29th November and Saturday 30th November by appointment.
Hill Cottage is located on Mill Lane, a picturesque semi-rural lane that leads out from the old part of the village and rises to the Cotswold escarpment. Homes rarely come to the market in this part of Prestbury and the lane is lined with interesting and individual homes. Prestbury is a highly regarded village of great charm and character, situated around 3 miles from Cheltenham town centre and under 6 miles to the Saxon town of Winchcombe. The village itself has very much a living feel and the amenities are extremely well patronised by the local residents. Along with a wonderful combination of 17th century and more modern homes that create atmospheric street scenes, there are two popular public houses plus the soon to be re-opened Kings Arms which has been bought by Ramond Blanc's chain and which will be a bistro pub, a village store, butchers, beautiful church and local schools. Open countryside and Cheltenham Racecourse are a few minutes drive away with access via Cleeve Hill onto the Cotswold Way. Cheltenham itself is a stunning Regency town with a huge array of amenities, festivals, world renowned schooling and excellent access to the major communication links.
