An exceptional, detached family home tucked away off this sought after road with a lovely garden, spacious parking, and a garage with an annex over.
This exceptional house sits behind a gated entrance on this renowned road positioned in the heart of one of Cheltenhams finest residential suburbs. The profile of the building is imposing and interesting, it was designed to be nestled into its own grounds and as such is barely visible from the road. Set over three storeys, the internals extend to over 4200 Sq Ft of the most immaculate accommodation which has been the subject of continual improvements and enhancements by the current owners. Architecturally designed 16 years ago, The Coach House exemplifies excellent interior planning, resulting in a home that flows beautifully through its grand proportions. The clever layout has been arranged with family life, entertaining and quiet retreat in mind, with free-flowing communal rooms in perfect balance with more formal space. Clever details have given a sociable and playful feel with the southerly side of the house, organised as a considerable kitchen and breakfast room adjoining a family room. The kitchen itself is beautifully appointed with a range of modern units, integrated appliances and a large island. An opening naturally divides the space to the breakfast room and an additional archway enters the family room. This entire arrangement connects to outside from two sets of doors, merging the exterior and interior space in order to fully enjoy the garden at each angle. To the other side of the house is a formal drawing and dining room with a Jack and Jill fireplace dividing the space. Both rooms have a set of doors leading to outside ensuring the garden is a prominent feature throughout the accommodation. To the front of the house is a snug/study with a cloakroom adjoining, whilst a utility/boot room is adjacent to the kitchen giving access to the rear garden.
As with any of the best family homes the upstairs space is both impressive and balanced to that of the reception rooms. A central staircase leads to a large galleried landing and the bedrooms which are spaciously set out. There are five double bedrooms, four of which have been designed with an en suite shower or bathroom. Further enhancing the excellent planning of family space.
On the second floor, the loft was converted some years ago to create a wonderful level for children. It is currently arranged as a large playroom with TV area/small gym. It also provides excellent storage.
Hatherley Road is a highly coveted address and the setting of The Coach House is both discreet and private. The house offers a lovely plot, set behind a brick perimeter wall and accessed through electric gates revealing very little of the house from the road. The driveway sweeps around to the front of the property, with curated gardens surrounding the house and for most of the year it is secluded by a mature Hornbeam hedge. Along one side of the house is a covered oak framed dining area with a pizza oven, which is accessible from the family room. This also includes an attractive garden shed. To the other side of the grounds, the driveway extends to the garage and annex. The garden at the rear, is a lovely area of level lawn stocked with mature boarders, flanking a large sun terrace. This is a wonderful space for families to play and in Spring, the garden comes into bloom filling it with colour. Within the garden is a further seating area under a gazebo. Above the garage is a one-bedroom annex complete with a kitchenette and shower room. This self-contained space would provide ideal guest or ancillary accommodation, equally useful as a home office or studio.
Hatherley Road is a lovely road within walking distance of Tivoli and The Park, an area that is without doubt one of the most desirable and highly sought after pockets of Cheltenham. The Coach House is discreetly set back from this tree lined avenue which is dotted with some beautiful homes of varying architectural merit and just a short stroll of Cheltenhams fashionable shops, Michelin starred restaurants, salons and bars. Less than a hundred miles from London, Cheltenham nestles beautifully between the Cotswold Hills and the Wye Valley and is home to numerous prestigious schools including Cheltenham College, The Cheltenham Ladies College, St Edwards and Dean Close, the latter within a short walk from the house. Owing to this and the cultural lifestyle on offer, including playing hosts to several highly acclaimed festivals, it is now regarded as one of the places to live and raise a family. For the commuter, this area is particularly well placed for both motorway access and the train station which can be reached, by foot, in less than 15 minutes.
