Christchurch Road Cheltenham GL50 2NY

Arguably one of the most impressive and beautifully restored family homes in the area.

Further Information

A home of elegance and balance superbly located on the leafy Christchurch Road, an unspoilt pocket of Cheltenham, just a ten-minute walk from Montpellier.  The property is a wonderful blend of Victorian grandeur with a modern day finish and the owners have taken great care to retain the very special original features, whilst making number 5 the most beautiful and inviting home through their careful restoration and planning.

Spanning c4226 Sq Ft of accommodation, the house is a rare expanse, affording opulent living and bedroom space that has been cleverly designed to offer a mix of formal and informal areas.  This is a home of two halves where classic meets contemporary through a detailed restoration that took the house back to brick with the addition of a modern extension, clever interior planning and exceptional quality.

The house is arranged over four floors, with the lower ground floor altered and extended to create the most magnificent kitchen / dining area, with sliding doors to the gardens. With handmade units by Roundhouse, and a range of high-end appliances by Miele, the kitchen is an area for entertaining as much as it is for family life with direct access to outside from the dining area. 

It is a rarity in these townhouses to find the addition and volume of glass which maximises the inside/outside feel yet the triple glazed sliding doors offers complete seclusion from outside noise. A family room occupies the front of this floor with a feature bay window and whilst separate from the open plan kitchen, it is a room in its own right. A snug with gas fire finishes the accommodation of this floor and of worthy note there is a side access directly from the front of the house to an extremely useful utility area and cloakroom. 

The primary entrance on the raised ground floor leads directly to the spectacular reception space from the original vestibule. This floor has been redesigned to showcase a more formal style, with the beautiful reception rooms kept in traditional style, open to each other by way of an archway. The formal drawing room is elegant with high ceilings, ornate cornicing and a bay window in keeping with the Victorian townhouse that it is. The informal drawing room is of equally grand proportions, making these two spaces ideal for entertaining with their period features, oak Broadleaf flooring and working fireplaces. The study is set to the rear, a lovely space to work from home overlooking the landscaped gardens with a living roof, which during spring and summer months is in full bloom. From the lobby, a set of steps down gives a further entrance to the kitchen/dining area and a cantilevered staircase rises to the accommodation on the first floor from the wide hallway.

The arrangement of this level has allowed for two beautiful bedrooms, a dressing room and separate cloakroom. A luxurious bathroom with a Cast iron bath, twin sinks, a walk in rain shower and underfloor heating.

The impressive bedroom space continues to the second floor, where three double bedrooms are all beautiful in style, neutral tones combine with period features to create a charming floor with a shower room. One of the bedrooms is currently used as a gym.

Outside:  The house is set back from the road and framed with a courtyard area offering private parking for two cars.   The garden to the rear of the house provides several areas to sit and to soak up the peace including a sunken terrace at the bottom of the garden with a canopy covering.  Designed to be minimalist, it is a seamless extension to the inside interiors, where the luxury is continued to the space outside.  Landscaped in 2019, this generous area was planted with high impact raised beds and a full lighting system through the garden. Easy to maintain, the gardens are a green oasis for town living.  

Christchurch Road is one of Cheltenham's most fashionable and popular locations within strolling distance of the cosmopolitan lifestyle on offer in Cheltenham’s centre.
