Further Information

Description
A rarely available plot which comprises a triangular parcel of land within an area of 2.1 acres.

The site is wooded and level along the western side, rising steeply to the eastern edge towards Leckhampton Hill. The plot is within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within a short stroll of some of Cheltenham’s most breathtaking walking countryside, yet Cheltenham’s cultural hub is within two miles.

Planning was granted in 2015 for an exceptional four-bedroom house over two floors, extending to approximately 270 square meters. A large area of decking sits over part of the ground floor accommodation and a double garage. Inspiration for the build has been drawn from its unique setting and heritage, the tall ‘chimney’ and double conical roof are an exceptional feature. The curved structure provides the frame work for the build ensuring that all of the living accommodation and bedrooms take advantage of the stunning outlook.
The proposed future design of Flight Farm allows a prospective owner to deploy the fundamental principles of exceptional architecture with the use of contemporary building methods, the latest materials and technology to create one of the very best bespoke homes that Cheltenham will offer. An eco-friendly approach, in line with its Power 55 status, is part of the distinctiveness.


Situation
Nestled to the edge of Leckhampton Hills escarpment, offering extensive walking, cycling and mountain bike routes, climbing and bridal paths all on the doorstep, Flight Farm is arguably a rare and very special setting. Lekchampton Hill has become a hugely sought-after place to live over recent years. It is recognised for offering the perfect balance of town and country, and for the high calibre homes that line each side of the hill. Local day to day amenities are within easy reach on the popular Bath Road, whilst Cheltenham is a comfortable drive and is an ideal location for being central to some of the best that The Cotswolds has to offer including a number of golf courses, The Lakes at South Cerney, The Polo at Cirencester and Cowley Manor, a beautiful boutique hotel with restaurant, gym and spa within a short drive. The town is well known for its Regency architecture, fine schools including Cheltenham College, The Cheltenham Ladies’ College and Dean Close and the cultural lifestyle it offers playing host to several highly acclaimed festivals. Flight Farm is particularly well placed for access to the M5 and motorway networks to other major cities including M4 Swindon to London.


Services
Mains water and electricity are ready connected to the site. The plans make provision for a private sewage, PV and 3wood chip boiler.
