The Retreat is situated well off Leckhampton Road on the slopes of Leckhampton Hill, enjoying views over the adjacent countryside, yet only minutes from the sought after Bath 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.
The Retreat is a fine example of contemporary architecture with the principal materials including glass, cedar and render. The house is set well back from the road with the rear elevation enjoying fine views over adjacent countryside, beyond a good sized garden that is laid predominantly to lawn with a wide patio. On the opposite side is a detached double garage.
Internally the house has been designed with both light and space in mind, with a wide entrance hall providing access to all the ground floor rooms and with a glass and oak staircase to the first floor. At the back of the house is a the main kitchen/dining/living room which extends to some 27 feet in width and with bifold doors to the garden. The cosy sitting room is at the front with a study, cloakroom and utility room opposite.
On the first floor are five double bedrooms including a guest bedroom with en suite shower room and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is particularly large with a balcony enjoying the view and an en suite shower room with walk in shower.
