This lovely detached family home dates from the 1930’s and stands in an established tree lined road within a mile of Cheltenham town centre, the general hospital and a number of popular schools including Holy Apostles. The property offers the potential to extend at the rear and is very well presented throughout.
Set back from this popular road with the benefit of an ‘in and out’ drive providing ample off road parking for 2 – 3 vehicles this lovely detached family home dates from the 1930s and comes to the market for the first time in 34 years having been a much loved and enjoyed home during that time. The property offers spacious accommodation, in excess of 2000 sq.ft which is laid out over three floors including a useful playroom on the second floor and there is also the potential to extend at the rear to create further living accommodation if required. The property is accessed through a recessed porch which leads to a generously wide reception hall with under stair storage which in turn leads to the sitting room which benefits from an attractive stone open fireplace and a southerly view of the garden. In addition there is an excellent open plan kitchen with a dining area, again with a lovely view of the garden, a useful utility room and separate cloakroom and a cosy snug or occasional second dining room with a bay window. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a good sized family bathroom whilst on the second floor there is a further large attic room which has historically been used as a children’s playroom, it would also be ideal as a home office as it benefits from spectacular views to the rear. At the front of the property there is an area of garden in addition to the driveway, whilst at the rear although not large there is a remarkably private south facing garden primarily laid to lawn for easy maintenance.
