A rarely available and most beautifully presented Grade II* listed townhouse enjoying a prominent position on Royal Crescent, with exceptional accommodation, a self-contained two bedroom apartment, private parking for five cars and a beautiful Italian walled garden.
6 Royal Crescent is a beautiful Grade II* listed townhouse forming part of a sweeping crescent in the heart of Cheltenhams centre. At 5169 Sq Ft, it is an outstanding home of impressive proportions, style and character. Offered for sale in the most immaculate order throughout five floors of beautifully proportioned living and bedroom space, the current owners have comprehensively renovated and cleverly re-designed the house to sympathetically restore the interiors and the classic layout resulting in a timeless feel complimented by modern additions. The atmosphere throughout the entire home is one of light, enhanced by tall ceilings, open spaces, and large sash windows.
Set back from a garden square, behind an attractive frontage and large open space, access to the property is via a few stone steps opening to an impressive reception vestibule with wooden flooring and a doorway to the elegant hallway with a cantilevered staircase. There are four principal reception rooms, all wonderful and generous spaces with period features including fireplaces, ceiling mouldings and all enjoying a lovely outlook. The kitchen opens to a dining/family room to the front with the crescent street scene. The hub of the house, it is fitted with an extensive range of units, integrated appliances to include an oven, and an integrated fridge/freezer. To the rear of the house, overlooking the Italian garden, is a formal dining room with a bay window and double doors opening to the most attractive raised terrace that wraps around the house. There is a large utility room and a home office on this floor.
On the first floor is the magnificent drawing room, a classic room with three full height sash windows and working shutters, framed with a traditional wrought iron balcony. Adjacent, overlooking the beautiful gardens, is the master bedroom and luxury en suite bathroom with a free-standing bath and twin sinks.
There is a lovely flow of space throughout the house and on the second floor, arranged off the main landing, are three double bedrooms including a guest room with en suite shower room and a luxury family bathroom with twin sinks. A staircase rises to the top floor and to two further double bedrooms and storage, both enjoying roof tops views.
At lower ground level is a further floor of excellent accommodation which provides flexibility to use as required. This original staircase from the main house links the two areas to provide an ideal guest, au pair quarters or overflow accommodation to the main house. The apartment can also be accessed from its own private entrance to the front lending itself to an independent apartment that would generate an income from a let. On this floor is a sitting room, two bedrooms both with en-suites, a kitchen/breakfast room and separate cloakroom. There is excellent storage.
The house sits well back from the road and is fronted by large area offering private parking for up to five cars. The garden to the rear is a particular feature, a classic walled garden which has been beautifully landscaped in Italianate style creating a space that is easy to maintain yet beautiful to enjoy. Unusually large for town, its a garden of interest with a variety of trees and well stocked plant and flower borders. The garden is accessed from both the lower ground floor and from the large terrace on the raised ground floor.
Royal Crescent is a uniform terrace and iconic landmark in the town epitomising the classic street scenes of fine example of Georgian architecture. Whilst prominent, the sweeping crescent is positioned discreetly and is in an unusually quiet spot for town. Set within the hub of cultural Cheltenham, it is within strolling distance of a lovely range of amenities on Promenade and within a short stroll of Montpelliers fashionable parade with its café and restaurant culture in addition to boutique shops. Cheltenham is famous for the many festivals it hosts, and Royal Crescent is comfortably situated to enjoy all that the town offers.
