Standing in gardens and grounds of approx. 4 acres on the slopes of Leckhampton Hill, commanding some of the finest views across the Severn Vale, this substantial detached Victorian house benefits from characterful and beautifully proportioned accommodation which requires significant updating.
Dating from the 1880’s, Cotteswold is an imposing ‘Gothic’ inspired detached stone Victorian villa of fantastic proportions, with accommodation laid out over four floors. Retaining a large number of period features such as deep skirting’s, tall moulded ceilings, working shutters and stone mullioned windows, the property has fallen into disrepair and now requires a sympathetic and substantial programme of refurbishment. Once complete, Cotteswold has the potential to be one of the finest family homes in the area.
