Arguably one of the finest contemporary residences in Cheltenham, Bentham House was created some 5 years ago with the utmost attention to detail and measures 6,121sq.ft. and includes a swimming pool, gym, sauna and cinema. The property sits in an enviable plot, with views, amounting to c.2.1acres.

Description - Approached through a pair of imposing double gates on stone pillars, the driveway provides plentiful parking and access to a subterranean garage of substantial proportions which has an electric door. The reception hall is a most magnificent design feature with steps leading down into a dining hall with triple height glazed elevation overlooking the gardens and grounds. The kitchen/breakfast room with central island and breakfast bar is adjacent and has bi-folding doors onto a sunken patio. The formal sitting room also has bi-folding doors opening into the garden together with a double-sided fireplace. Also on this level is a family room, cinema, gym with sauna and shower room, utility room and cloakroom. The guest suite is located on the raised ground floor and overlooks the gardens to the rear. The principal suite is stunning, benefitting from twin dressing rooms together with a show stopping en-suite bathroom with shower and free-standing slipper bath in the window over-looking the swimming pool and views beyond. The first floor offers three further double bedroom suites all overlooking the gardens and grounds. Outside and to the rear of the property is a recently installed swimming pool, various patio areas to make the most of the summer sunshine and a large area of level lawn.
