Further Information

2 Paragon Terrace is the most beautiful townhouse, listed Grade II, it forms part of an attractive street scene on this exclusive private road of which properties rarely come to the market. A much-treasured family home, the owners have meticulously and exquisitely refurbished the property over the years, with an injection of exceptional interior design and planning that skillfully balances a modern approach to the period structure, without compromising on the intricacies of its era. The classic layout combines with a well-curated palette of materials and colours, including Amtico flooring, ornate cornicing and picture windows that make this a home of the highest quality.

There are two points of entry to the property, one from the garden level into the kitchen and the main entrance, via a few steps into a beautiful hallway with a cantilevered staircase. The raised ground floor contains the principal reception rooms, which provide an immediate impression of the beautiful finish that features throughout each floor. In traditional townhouse style the formal drawing room is set to the front of the house, overlooking the street scene, Parliament doors open to a further reception room, by tradition these are often used as a bedroom, enjoying views over the garden. Both rooms are wonderfully light enhanced by the large sash windows and tall ceilings, feature fireplaces and decorative cornice giving each room elegant detail. Additionally, there is a further room with a shower, that could be used as an occasional bedroom.
A short flight of stairs leads to the garden level and introduces further reception rooms, whilst these are more informal in style, great thought has been given to the quality and layout, creating flexible spaces to use as required. This beautiful floor feels particularly stylish, more contemporary in finish, it has been designed for comfort and quality with underfloor heating throughout and a partial open plan layout that creates free flowing areas. The kitchen is well appointed with a range of quality fitted units under a Corian work surface and integrated appliances by Miele and Neff, a breakfast bar divides the space to a sitting room, an ideal arrangement for both family life and entertaining. Behind the kitchen is a dining room, which is wonderfully light with a ceiling lantern and two sets of French doors that merge the interiors to a sun terrace and the garden. A cloakroom is connected to the hallway and a utility area can be found off the kitchen.

The staircase leads to the first floor and a luxury bathroom on mezzanine level, with twin sinks, a separate shower and curved bath. The staircase continues to two double bedrooms and a dressing room, which was once a bedroom and could easily revert if so wished.

The quality of outside has been as much a consideration to that of the interior design. Beautifully landscaped, the garden is a complete joy and unusually generous for town living. Arranged in two tiers, with a spacious sun terrace accessed from the main reception rooms on the garden level, this is an ideal spot to dine al fresco and for planting. The broader gardens continue from here, an area of level lawn all bounded by high brick walling for privacy.

This is a much sought-after central address with just a handful of uniform townhouses that line one side of this road, overlooking the Chapel of Cheltenham College. Nestled off Bath Road, Paragon Terrace is a private, no through road and as such, there is very little foot, or vehicular traffic. This quaint setting is so discreet, yet it is in the hub of cultural Cheltenham in one of the very best pockets close to Montpellier and Promenade, two areas that are rich in culture with a lively shopping and restaurant scene, for which the town is well regarded. Within a stones throw of the terrace are Montpellier Gardens, with its play park, café, tennis courts and garden square in addition to Imperial Gardens, with two fine restaurants and areas to sit and enjoy the grounds. Both, play 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, Berkhampstead and Dean Close, all within a comfortable walk or bike ride from the property. Communication links are excellent from this area, with easy access to the M5 Motorway and Cheltenham Spa Train Station, with lines to major cities.
