Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

Welcome to the Top Floor Apartment, a Grade II listed penthouse apartment situated within the desirable area that is of Wellington Square. Found within a short stroll of the town centre, the location also borders Pittville Park with its two large lakes, and the world famous, Prestbury Park, home of the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

This `Gothic Revival` house, designed by Joseph Pitt, and built between 1856 -1859, was stylishly converted into four spacious apartments in 1998. Located on the west side of Wellington Square, the house is famous for its statue of William Charles McCready set below a castellated front stone elevation, celebrating this Shakespearian actor, who occupied the property from 1860 - 1873, and was visited there by the novelist Charles Dickens.

Approaching the property, you are struck by the grandeur of the building which continues once inside the communal entrance. High ceilings, period features, and the most wonderful sweeping and grand staircase lead you to the upper level where our property is located. Above the central staircase is a large glass canopy window which floods the upper stairwell with natural light.

Once inside, the property continues to delight with high ceilings, lots of natural light, open views and an apartment that is beautifully appointed. The open hallway has a cloak cupboard/utility area as the washing machine is housed in this space. The main reception room is spacious and light, with two large sash windows allowing views towards Cleeve Hill. One of the sash windows gives access to a delightful castellated stone balcony, to enjoy a coffee and/or plant flower containers.

Hidden away from the main living space is a recently fitted kitchen/breakfast space. The units which are neutral in colour only compliment the apartment, and there are contemporary touches such as the brick effect cream tiled splash back and the oven, hob and extractor are built in.

Completing the property are the two double bedrooms. Located to the rear of the apartment, the rooms allow rooftop views across Cheltenham to the Malvern Hills. The master bedroom offers fitted Sharp wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The three-piece bathroom suite again is flooded with natural light due to a high double casement window, through which the roof can easily be accessed for great views and to admire the decorative chimneys. There is also a large attic for storage.

Although the property offers no formal parking, permit parking is available in the Square at £50 per year with a second car costing £100 per year, and visitors permits are also available at a reasonable cost of £1 per day.

This stunning apartment is a real gem and one that comes with a high recommendation to view. To arrange this, please contact us on 01242 220080 and we would be delighted to show you around.
