Tenure: Freehold

One of the finest contemporary houses in Cheltenham exemplifying state of the art design, set within an idyllic plot on the esteemed Battledown estate.

Skyview House is a unique detached home showcasing the best of modern architecture and as such sets it apart from anything else on the Battledown estate. The innovative build combines state of the art technology with a cutting-edge design. Skyview House has been cleverly set into the plot to take full advantage of the stunning views blending into the landscape with a seamless infinity living arrangement. By using natural and sustainable materials that are energy and space efficient there is a tremendous sense of light and openness. Exacting standards and attention to detail combine with impressive accommodation at circa 6,100 Sq Ft, perfect for entertaining with luxury detail at its very heart.
Arranged over three floors entrance is gained through a grand reception hall which opens to the luxurious accommodation on the ground floor, complete with a gym, steam room and cloakroom. There is a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room and double doors opening into an attractive open courtyard. In addition is a cloakroom and useful boot room. A wide, architecturally curved staircase rises to the upper ground floor and to the innovatively designed reception space, with the principal rooms arranged around a spacious outdoor terrace. Whilst predominantly open plan, this spectacular area encases strategic living areas defined for music, reading and media. A dual aspect floating gas fire splits the sitting room to the dining room which houses the wine cellar, continuing to the superior Italian kitchen which is luxuriously finished with integrated appliances including four Samsung ovens, an instant hot & cold water tap and an island with induction hob dividing the room. A series of bi folding and infinity doors accessed from the kitchen and the main hall lead to the central terrace, reaffirming the outside-inside feel. The drawing room has a further set of bi folding doors leading to the terrace and BBQ area, allowing the most beautiful panoramic vista of Cheltenham. In addition to the sitting areas, there is a playroom/snug which can be closed off from the main accommodation gives access to an outside terrace and a separate home office. A spacious utility and cloakroom complete the accommodation on this floor.

A discreet staircase leads to second floor level and the impressive bedroom space. Beautifully appointed all five bedrooms are double, some with en suite bathrooms.

The driveway provides off road parking for numerous vehicles and access to the double garage. The exacting details continue to outdoor space, where particular thought has been given to outside entertaining and hidden facets that provide strategic seating areas. The gently sloping landscaped gardens are a real feature, designed by renowned Chelsea Flower Show gardener Declan Buckley there are over 2000 plants and trees including a wild flower garden. Arranged to three sides of the property including a large area of levelled lawn at the rear, high trees provide the framework to the plot, enabling complete privacy yet with openings to enjoy the superb views. The extensive terrace area is a serene spot, ideal for entertaining and enjoying what is undeniably one of Cheltenham’s finest vistas.

Battledown is one of Cheltenham’s most desirable residential locations and hugely sought after. The private and gated estate is beautifully maintained with high calibre houses set on tree lined roads all fronted by manicured verges. Built for the gentry in circa 1859, the estate is characterised by its impressive homes set within spacious plots and enjoying some of the most enviable views in Cheltenham. Much of the charm of Battledown is due to its peaceful setting with easy access to some of the most beautiful riding and walking countryside. Yet its real appeal is the proximity to Cheltenham’s stylish centre, Skyview House is within walking distance to Cheltenham’s fashionable shops, Michelin starred restaurants, salons and bars. Less than a hundred miles from London, Cheltenham nestles beautifully between the Cotswold Hills and the Wye Valley, and is home to numerous prestigious schools including Cheltenham College, The Cheltenham Ladies’ College, and Dean Close. Owing to this and the cultural lifestyle on offer, including playing hosts to several highly-acclaimed festivals, it is now regarded as one of the places to live and raise a family.
