Full description

Cressy House is approached through electric gates down a long tree lined private gravelled driveway to the front of this Grade II listed 18th Century house which stands beautifully within its plot and offers a real sense of privacy. The front door opens into a wonderful drawing room benefiting from original flagstone flooring, a feature fireplace, a newly fitted log burner and wooden beams, all of which engender a genuine Cotswold country house feel.

The formal dining room has wonderful bay windows that directly overlook the property's front aspect. The downstairs reception areas are perfect for family living and entertaining.

A new, Tom Howley luxury handcrafted and bespoke kitchen, compliments the grandeur of the house as does the large lantern window which showers the kitchen in light and a sense of space.
The two sets of new hardwood double doors open out onto the patio and give access to the rear garden areas of the property. The kitchen forms the heart of the home and makes for a wonderful open family space. The kitchen also includes the recently fitted duel fuel Aga with additional gas hobs and oven; a  built in wine cooler, a large Fisher&Paykel American style fridge freezer, Neff dishwasher and a Quooker instant boiling water tap in addition to the other appliances one would normally expect to find.

The family snug area is then located off the kitchen, with a cast iron spiral staircase leading to the self-contained guest bedroom. This room has also previously been used as a study or children's playroom. The interlinking central hallway gives access to both the utility room and a basement store room. A WC and boot room complete the ground floor.

Stairs lead to the first and second floor and take you to four light and airy double bedrooms, all benefiting from the most fabulous panoramic views. Each room has its own distinct profile, Georgian period features with a modern twist. There are two family bathrooms off the interconnecting hallway and a light and airy landing area.

NB * Please not that Bedroom 5/Study is accessed via the snug/sitting room spiral stair case, not the first floor access.

New double glazed hardwood windows have been fitted throughout.

The large private rear garden is bounded by mature hedging, flower borders and established trees the strategic seating areas anchor the garden to the house and provide the perfect spot to dine al fresco. In addition there is a large storage shed at the rear of the garden.

Cressy House represents an exciting and unique opportunity to acquire an individual and unique home, renovated to the very highest standards affording the most generous levels of luxury, comfort and security in a beautiful historic building. Situated in one of the best locations in Cheltenham and in a highly sought after village community.

The historic village of Prestbury is listed in the Doomsday Book and Cressy House itself has its own place in history having once been home for the rehabilitation of returning WW1 war horses. Prestbury village, whilst now a suburb of Cheltenham, still retains a strong village identity and boasts an array of local shops, a church, flourishing schools, library and Dr's surgery. Prestbury is perfect for anyone looking for village life but within walking distance or a short drive from Cheltenham town centre. The very best of both worlds.
