A wonderfully located detached house built in around 1960 requiring modernisation set in wonderful gardens extending to over a quarter acre


Painswick Road is widely regarded as one of the most sought after residential roads in Cheltenham town providing superb access to Montpellier, The Bath Road, Tivoli and The Park. Number 74 is set well back from the quiet road, close to the junction with Grafton Road.

Cheltenham is famed as one of the most complete Regency towns in England and historically the original and most fashionable spa.

Less than a hundred miles from London it nestles beautifully between the Cotswold Hills and the Wye Valley, and is home to numerous prestigious schools including Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College, Dean Close and Pates Grammar which recently topped the national GCSE schools league table.

Now a highly sought after place to live (voted the number 1 place in the United Kingdom to bring up a family by the Telegraph early in 2015), the town is well known for its grand houses set amongst formal avenues and beautiful garden squares.

For those with a taste for the finer things in life, there are Michelin starred restaurants, numerous bars, stylish shops and salons aplenty.

For art and history lovers there is The Wilson, Cheltenham's newly refurbished museum and art gallery, whilst Cheltenham also has a thriving cultural scene that includes two concert halls and three theatres. There are the numerous festivals such as The Wychwood Festival, the festivals of literature, science, food and drink and, perhaps the pinnacle for some, the jazz festival, which has historically attracted such known performers as Van Morrison, Jamie Cullum and Jools Holland.

Undoubtedly for many more, the highlight of the year is the annual racing festival culminating with the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the blue riband event of the national hunt calendar, and an attraction that draws the public to the town year after year.


74 Painswick Road is a beautifully located detached house requiring general modernisation found in one of the most sought after residential locations in Cheltenham town.

Built in around 1960, the house is set nicely back from the quiet road with a gravelled in/out driveway with a central lawn flanked by mature plant and shrub borders. To the left of the house is a garage with the front door to the centre of the house with a covered entrance porch.

The rear garden is fully enclosed and is fabulously stocked with a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees providing a huge degree of privacy and a wonderful place to explore or entertain.

The generous accommodation is arranged on two floors with a central hallway and a cloakroom straight ahead. To the right is a substantial front to back sitting room with double doors to the rear garden and fireplace. On the opposite side of the hall is a dining room with a kitchen/breakfast room behind, overlooking the garden. Beyond is a snug opening in to a conservatory.

On the first floor are five bedrooms - one currently used as a study and one as a first floor sitting room with access on to a terrace/balcony. One bedroom enjoys use of an en suite bathroom and there is a family bathroom.

Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
