Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Upton Knoll is a handsome and substantial Victorian house built around 1884 for the locally renowned printer and amateur archaeologist John Bellows. The property retains many of the features typical of the architecture of this era including a generous reception hall with sweeping staircase and galleried landing, elegant fireplaces in the principal reception rooms and even the built in floor-to-ceiling storage unit in the utility room. The ground floor offers three principal reception rooms all with generously high ceilings and large windows that not only flood the rooms with light but also offer an opportunity to take in the far reaching views across the Severn Vale to the Forest of Dean and beyond. On the first floor, the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and large square bay window offering superb views. There are three further independent bedrooms on this floor in addition to a shower room. The property is particularly well-placed to offer the new owner scope to have extended family living independently alongside them or to generate income from rental or holiday letting ventures (subject to appropriate consents). Accessed via a separate front door but linked internally to the main house are two independent self-contained annexes. On the first floor, there is a flat offering reception room, kitchenette and en suite bedroom while the second floor is laid out as a three bedroom apartment with sitting room, fitted kitchen and bathroom.

Situation

Upton St Leonards is a thriving village community situated at the foot of the Cotswold escarpment and encompassing the adjacent hamlets of Portway and Nuthill. The Village Hall and Church are at the heart of the community along with a range of local shops, a Post Office, playgroup and the Kings Head public house whilst the Bowden Hall and Hatton Court Hotels offer alternative dining venues. The recreation ground is home to many clubs including tennis, cricket and football teams. In the wider area, events include golf at Gloucester and Painswick Golf Clubs, polo at Longdole and Cirencester Park, skiing at Gloucester Ski Centre, racing at Prestbury Park and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, together with shooting and fishing on local estates. Gloucester City offers a comprehensive selection of recreational, commercial and retail facilities with Stroud being home to an award winning Farmers Market whilst Cheltenham is the main regional centre and offers festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science.
Upton Primary School has a "Good" rating and secondary school options are particularly strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School in Gloucester, Wycliffe College in Stroud, Cheltenham College & Cheltenham Ladies College and The Wynstones Steiner School nearby in Whaddon whilst there are grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
