A superbly located, elegant semi detached late Victorian villa with extensive accommodation offering versatile living space, a large garage and a south-west facing garden

Location

Pembroke House is superbly located in a sought after residential district off Christchurch Road, close to the train station and the facilities of Montpellier.

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.

Description

Description
Pembroke House is a substantial, semi detached, late Victorian villa in a sought after residential location, offering well -proportioned accommodation, primarily over three floors. Subject to any necessary planning consents, the ground floor offers great potential for alteration and adjustment which could provide more open plan living space if preferred.

Significant expense has been incurred by the vendors in recent years upgrading the property, most particularly in the renovation of the windows using renowned company Ventrolla (www.ventrolla.co.uk), which includes the complete refurbishment of the existing sash windows along with complete draught proofing and extra insulation.

On the ground floor, the large tiled vestibule opens via double doors to a large central hallway with a lovely pitch-pine staircase. The central hall leads front to back, with a sitting room to the front and a dining room towards the rear, both with attractive period fireplaces, the dining room has a gas log burning stove. The well-proportioned kitchen comprises a variety of cupboard and drawer units at base and eye level, including integrated appliances, with a tiled splashback and tiled floor. A connecting door leads to the wonderful painted wood conservatory, with dwarf walls, double doors to the garden, central heating and electrically operated vent.

To the side of the kitchen is a cloakroom/utility beyond which is a door in to the unusually large garage which extends to over 33 feet in length, with a window, pedestrian door to the garden and an electrically operated roller door to the front. The garage has central heating and has been used as a games room.

On the first floor is a wide landing with a generous master bedroom including an en suite shower room and pretty fireplace. A large second bedroom features a handsome fireplace. Beyond is an unusually large bathroom and an additional room, previously a bedroom, but currently set up as a dressing room.

On the second floor is a further bathroom and two additional bedrooms, one with a set of stairs to a further area that could be used as a teenage games or study area, or an occasional bedroom.

There are fireplaces in all the bedrooms with working gas fires.

Outside, to the front, the house is approached via a pillared entrance to a wide tarmac parking area providing space for a number of vehicles. Attractive steps lead up to the double opening front doors.

To the rear the enclosed garden is laid mostly to lawn and faces South-West, with a full width decked entertaining space immediately beyond the conservatory, here sits a modern hot tub that is available by separate negotiation.
