An exceptional and classic period home of great quality with grand proportions offering flexible accommodation, a two bedroom self-contained apartment and pretty generous garden within a walk of the town centre.
Stone Priors is exceptional, a beautiful Ashlar stone Grade II listed townhouse forming part of an attractive street for which Cheltenham is so well-regarded. Steeped in local history the property and the road have become a highly coveted address over recent years offering the very best of town living yet a stones throw from parks and open spaces. The current owners have meticulously refurbished the property, skillfully balancing a modern approach to the period structure, without compromising on the beautiful intricacies of its era. Spanning c5188 Sq Ft of internal accommodation, the property is lavish in proportions and particularly grand.
The house is arranged over four floors, with the lower ground floor a separately accessed, two-bedroom apartment. This is an excellent extension to the main house and offers versatility to be used as required. Should a prospective owner wish, this could generate a supplementary income or to keep, as it is currently used, as overflow/guest accommodation to the main house, as the original staircase connecting the two is still in use.
Doric pillars frame the front door providing a grand entrance into the hallway with a cantilevered staircase and to the raised ground floor, containing the reception rooms. This entire floor is beautiful, a classic blend of original stone flooring and wooden floorboards run through the entire area, the formal drawing room to the front overlooks the street scene through two large sash windows with working shutters and an elegant fireplace as a focal point. Through a squared arch is the formal dining room with views over the garden, both rooms open to make an ideal spot for entertaining. Across the rear of the house, with two sets of doors opening to the raised deck and further garden, is the magnificent kitchen/breakfast room. Fitted with a range of bespoke units and integrated appliances, a large breakfast bar divides the space. A further sociable room which is enhanced by its connection to the garden, giving an inside outside feel. There is a cloakroom and storage adjacent.
The five double bedrooms arranged around a central landing on the first floor are generous in size. The master suite overlooks the gardens at the rear, with the benefit of an en suite shower room. With a further guest bedroom with en suite. The two further bedrooms share a luxury bathroom with a double bedroom on the second floor. Continuing the period yet modernist feel of the reception rooms, this theme continues to the bedroom space, enhanced by a wealth of period features.
In all, the most impeccable townhouse of great architectural merit, renovated to the highest standard throughout and ideal for town living.
A curated frontage with wrought iron railings encases Stone Priors. The broader gardens to the rear are a joy and generous for a town house. Laid to lawn with deep stone beds filled with flowers and plants to one side, there is a raised decked area idea for seating, accessed from the kitchen and a further seating and BBQ area to the rear of the grounds. From the lower ground is a small courtyard.
Priory Street is one of Cheltenhams finest residential addresses. Leafy and tree lined it runs from London Road up to Sydenham Villas Road and within a short stroll is Cheltenhams fashionable town centre. The house is a stones throw from the rich offerings within town, the famous shopping district and lively café and festival culture for which Cheltenham is so well regarded. Schools within the locality are exceptional and include world renowned boarding schools, The Cheltenham Ladies College, Dean Close and Cheltenham College. Whilst distinctively town living, this area is a very quiet pocket and is well known for its close proximity to some beautiful parks and garden squares. Communication links are highly accessible to the M5, A40 and A435 and Cheltenham Spa train station is within walking distance.
