A beautiful townhouse with a self-contained apartment overlooking the impressive Montpellier Gardens on this highly coveted road.
Number 10 is the most beautiful Grade II listed townhouse forming part of an attractive parade for which Cheltenham is so well-regarded. Steeped in local history, the property won a Civic award in 2007 for its glass fronted extension which features throughout each floor. Despite being a contemporary addition, the contrast is so subtle, not compromising the intricacies of the original structure, yet flooding the whole house with natural light. It remains one of only three complete townhouses on this elegant parade and as such, homes in their entirety rarely come to the market preserving its highly coveted address. Despite being so central, Montpellier Spa Road is particularly quiet for town living, overlooking the glorious green park of Montpellier Gardens, it is in part, one way, creating less vehicular traffic than most centrally located properties.
Spanning c3014 Sq. Ft of accommodation, the property is deceptively spacious and particularly grand with stunning proportions and well planned, practical accommodation. The house is arranged over four floors, with the lower ground floor a separately accessed apartment comprising a bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and kitchen.
This excellent space has generated a supplementary income for the current owner, having been successfully let on short term tenancies for many years. By reinstating the internal staircase, STP, a prospective owner could create overflow accommodation to the main house or use as guest quarters.
Entrance is via a few steps into the contemporary glass hallway, it is here that you get a real appreciation of how the glass contrasts beautifully with the original, period structure. A glass Cupola is a further feature and as you climb the cantilevered staircase the dome draws in, further filling this home with light. The kitchen is set to the rear of the raised ground floor, with an adjacent utility area and double doors opening to outside. This entire space is generous, the neutral kitchen overlooks the courtyard garden through two windows and is fitted with a range of bespoke units, an island and integrated appliances including an Aga. To the front of the house is a formal dining room, a graceful space with a feature fireplace and two Sash windows overlooking the attractive street scene and gardens.
As with any traditional town house, the drawing room is positioned on the first floor. This elegant room is grand with tall ceilings, period features and large sash windows. The views from here are beautiful, in full sight is Montpellier Gardens with its tennis courts, play park and bandstand. To the rear of this floor is a bedroom with built in wardrobes and adjacent, a shower room which can be accessed from the hallway, ideal for visiting guests.
The three further bedrooms are arranged around a landing on the third floor. Each room has built in wardrobes and shares a spacious family bathroom.
In all, a very special townhouse, of great architectural merit, ideal for town living or as a lock up and leave.
There is a raised paved and decked terrace to the rear which provides a lovely outside courtyard, perfect for al fresco dining, dressed with potted plants and framed with walling.
This is a much sought-after Montpellier address, with the name derived from the Spa waters that Cheltenham is so famous for. The entrance is opposite the iconic Montpellier Gardens, known for its Bandstand, tennis courts, play park and pretty cafe. This historic tree-lined road is especially attractive and is within a very short stroll of a collection of local coffee shops, wine merchants, boutique shops and convenience stores, in the heart of Montpellier boulevards.
With some of the best restaurants on your doorstep including The Ivy, and the fashionable Promenade within walking distance, this is the very best of town living. A cultural centre, Cheltenham plays host to several highly acclaimed festivals including Music, Food and Literature. The town is also known for its excellent schools to include The Cheltenham Ladies College, Cheltenham College, and Dean Close, all within a comfortable walk or bike ride.
Communication links are excellent from this area, with easy access to the M5 Motorway and main line train station with lines to major cities
