A unique and distinctive home on the highly sought after and rarely available cul -de-sac of Ham Close, a home offering a countryside village setting yet a walk from Charlton Kings.
Ham Close is very much a cul-de-sac of its era, characterised by the practical homes that the well reputed builder was esteemed for creating. Properties in the close rarely come to the market and without doubt the setting is enviable with number 10 occupying one of the best positions on this exclusive, small development. A detached house, the property rests in the most beautiful gardens running down to a stream, with a bridged walkway opening to a large wildflower garden and backing onto the allotments. It extends to over c1761 Sq Ft internally and was strategically designed to take advantage of its elevated position with the house dropping down into its plot. Its unique finish has been enhanced by the vendors who have applied a contemporary, more minimalist style to the home which fully embraces its setting and offers deceptively spacious accommodation.
The reception rooms are on the raised ground floor, with the principal rooms positioned to overlook the gardens and further grounds. Both the sitting room and the dining room open onto a wonderful balcony terrace, a further spot to take in the views. The kitchen is modern in style with a range of fitted units and integrated appliances. A viewing window has been cleverly placed to be able to open the kitchen to the dining room for more informal living or closed, to provide separate spaces. There is a study to the front of the house and a large utility room with access into the internal garage.
The bedrooms are positioned on garden level, which further enhances the lovely and distinctive layout of the accommodation. The maser suite has an en suite shower room, whilst the two bedrooms share a family bathroom. All bedrooms overlook a courtyard and the broader grounds to the rear, making it feel particularly secure and private.
Ham Close is a classic and highly regarded address with number 10 located to the bottom of the close. Due to its position, it enjoys one of the best gardens on the development and gated access directly to Ryeworth Road. The whole setting is beautiful, peaceful, and mature the grounds are made up of an area of level lawn with a bridge walkway over a gentle stream and into the wild garden with vegetable beds. Beyond this are the allotments of Charlton Kings, creating a real countryside setting with direct access to some of the best walks and bridle paths within the area. Whilst distinctively quiet, the walk to local amenities is extremely easy and short. To the front of the house is a large area for parking and access to the garage.
Ham is a very unique and pretty hamlet to the edge of the sought after village of Charlton Kings. Made up of some beautiful houses of all architectural merit, with a true countryside setting, this charming position offers the rare balance of a semi-rural lifestyle yet within a short stroll of the boutique shops at Sixways and a little further to the amenities in the main village itself. There is a short cut and easy walking route to both the sought-after Charlton Kings Juniors and Balcarras secondary school in addition to Glenfall Primary, just five minutes by foot or bike from the house. These schools are widely known with Balcarras reputed for being one of the top schools in the country. This, and the vibrant community on offer, has helped to retain the prestigious status Charlton Kings holds as one of the best addresses within the area. The location also has excellent access onto the A40 for Oxford and London and Cheltenham town centre is only 3 miles away.
