A magnificent Grade II listed family residence affording some of Gloucestershire’s most dramatic west facing views. The origins of the house are believed to date back to circa 1801 when the battlemented tower was constructed as a folly for the nearby Leckhampton Court.
The original folly was positioned due to the extraordinary views that this house has in abundance. It has subsequently been extended in two major sections and has benefitted from a thorough refurbishment throughout which has created the wonderful family house you see today.
The impressive entrance is via a glass and oak porch opening into a reception hall. The flow throughout the house is excellent with all main reception rooms linked. There is a lovely triple aspect drawing room with Cotswold stone fireplace with log burner; sitting room with patio doors to garden; living room with log burner and glazed lantern roof. All three of these rooms make the most of the views with floor to ceiling glazed bi-folding doors. The kitchen/breakfast room has a built-in cupboard with safe, granite worktops over cream units, integrated appliances to include two fridges, induction hob, microwave, oven and dishwasher. There is a utility/boot room with space for tumble drier, extra fridge and drinks fridge, with further access to the garden and two cloakrooms. In the tower is a bedroom and a triple aspect sitting room. On the first floor is the dual aspect principal bedroom with amazing views, built-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. There are four further bedrooms on this floor, two with en suites; the family bathroom and a generous inner landing which would lend itself to being a possible extra bedroom or playroom.
The property is accessed via electric double timber gates providing excellent privacy. This allows access onto the spacious block paved driveway with ample parking which leads in turn to the double garage with electronically operated doors, sink, power and light and wall-mounted pump assisted hot water tank. Adjoining the garage is an independent annexe with dual aspect bedroom with kitchen area with sink, space for microwave and fridge and wet room shower. There is a full patio surrounding the house with a number of areas from which to enjoy the setting sun with far reaching views over Cheltenham and The Malverns in the distance. The extensive gardens, designed by ‘Graduate Gardeners’ include sweeping lawns with mature trees, an ornamental pond, vegetable plot, chicken enclosure, log store and fenced paddock of about 3.5 acres
There is also a detached barn with triple opening door and a generous loft area. This is currently used as machine storage, but could be converted into independent accommodation, subject to the necessary permissions.
In addition, there is also an independent drive used for field access and convenient access to the barn.
