Albert Road is a sought after residential avenue lined by trees and located in the sought after Pittville District of Cheltenham, to the East of the town centre and with a variety of residential property, primarily arranged around the lovely Pittville Park and within a reasonable walk or short drive of Cheltenham town centre.
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.
12 Albert Road is a beautifully presented semi detached Grade II Listed period house in a sought after residential location in leafy Pittville.
On a substantial plot, a major feature of the property is the stunning rear garden which enjoys afternoon and evening sunshine, being West facing, and with wide lawn, mature plants and shrubs and fruit trees. At the end of the garden, accessed via a rear lane, is an additional vehicular access, while at the front is parking for a number of vehicles. Immediately to the rear of the house is a raised deck overlooking the garden, perfect for al fresco dining.
Steps lead up to the main entrance in to a lovely front to back entrance hall from which are the principal reception rooms. To the left is the drawing room, opening in to the dining room, while to the right is the kitchen/breakfast room opening in to the sitting room, all with superbly wide windows allowing the rooms to be bathed in light.
On the first and second floors are five double bedrooms including the master bedroom with an en suite shower room. In addition are two further bathrooms, one with a shower, and a substantial walk in storage area on the second floor.
The lower ground floor is currently arranged as additional accommodation to the upper floors but could be used as a separate apartment, subject to any necessary consents or permissions, with a private front door. Two further bedrooms (overall numbers 6 & 7) make use of an additional shower room with a study and useful utility room completing the accommodation.
