6 bedroom detached house for sale


Sold STC £1,000,000

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most characterful and individual five/six bedroom detached family home,believed to date back to around 1927 and is well loved by its current owners who have lived here for over 30 years happily raising their family - which has now flown! It occupies a generous plot for a house of its type in this relatively central location.

The accommodation, which totals around 3084 sq ft (286 sq mts), is arranged over three floors and lends itself to being re-modelled/extended particularly on the ground floor. Offering a reception hall, living room, dining room and sitting room, there is also a kitchen/breakfast room and utility room.

The first floor offers four double bedrooms and a large family bathroom with freestanding bath and shower cubicle whilst the second floor hosts the master suite consisting of a large bedroom, en suite bathroom and a dressing room or bedroom 6, depending on your needs.

A definite feature of this property is the attractive c. South facing rear garden with a Gazebo, whilst at the front of the property is a curved driveway providing in and out access, "Mediterranean" style garden area, carport and garage.

The Situation: Found at the 'foot' of Battledown, Courtrai lies in what we experience to be a sought after position close to Holy Apostles Junior School; also only half a mile or so from St Edwards Junior School. The Queen Elizabeth public playing field is "just around the corner" too, and Sainsbury's at Battledown Park is around ¾ of a mile away. Cheltenham town centre is found just under a mile distant where you can find the popular shopping districts of the High Street which is soon to have a John Lewis flagship store, the Regent Arcade, The Promenade and Montpellier which boast an extensive range of shops, boutiques and eateries including the newly open restaurant The Ivy. There is also a regular market and Farmers market held on the Promenade. Cheltenham is renowned for its Festivals which include the Literature Festival (host to a wealth of famous people), the Jazz Festival, Science Festival and the Food and Drink Festival; many of which are held in the historic Town Hall and its beautiful Montpellier Gardens together with the Everyman Theatre which was restored in recent years. Not forgetting the very popular Cheltenham Gold Cup Festival held at Cheltenham's Prestbury Park Racecourse; Pittville Park is conveniently located only half a mile or so from both the Town Centre and the Racecourse.

Directions: Leave Cheltenham Town Centre via Albion Street and Berkeley Street (from inner ring road) via A40 London Road; at the second set of traffic lights turn left into Hales Road. Turn sixth right (just after the pedestrian crossing) into Battledown Approach. Courtrai is found just before Holy Apostles School on the right hand side (also prior to reaching Haywards Lane on the right and Battledown Close on the left).
