A superb high specification Cala built home in one of the best situations on this sought after development with stunning South Westerly views across the Dean Close playing fields

About this property

  • Built by renowned national developers Cala Homes in 2019, 59 Lansdown is a landmark development for the town, with a range of high specification houses and apartments, all located close to Cheltenham town facilities, the train station and the M5. Number 23 is a 'Regency' house type, the highest specification house in the range, and arguably in the finest position on the development, certainly enjoying some of the best views from the back of the house and from the balcony across the Dean Close playing fields and to the distant hills beyond.

    Maintained and improved beautifully by the current, and only, owners, the house is presented in superb decorative order throughout with the owners having improved areas from the already high standard, including a wonderful media unit in the drawing room, an additional car charging point, and a landscaped rear garden.

    The accommodation is arranged over three floors with the five bedrooms on the upper two floors, the main bedroom including an en suite shower room and a walk in dressing room/wardrobe. There are four further bedrooms (one currently used as a study) with a family bathroom on the second floor and a family shower room on the first floor. Worthy of particular mention is the lantern skylight that sits above the landing which allows natural light to flood in to the landing on both the upper floor levels.

    The drawing room is on the first floor at the back of the house with access out on to the balcony. The aspect from here is idyllic, with views directly across the Dean Close playing fields to the South West, enjoying the sun for most of the day and in particular the afternoon and evening.

    On the ground floor is the open plan kitchen/living/dining room with central island unit, silestone worksurfaces and upstands, Siemens integrated appliances including wine cooler, and bifold doors out to the garden. Accessing the house through the front door, there is a coat/shoe cupboard, understairs cupboard, cloakroom and fitted utility room with a pedestrian door to the garage.

    Outside at the front are two parking spaces in front of a single garage which features an electric door and returning door to the utility room. There are two electric car charging points including one in the garage. The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped and is incredibly well kept, with mostly hard landscaping and mature plant and shrub borders.

The best feature of this house is the ability to sit on the balcony and watch the cricket in the summer at Dean Close. Being a lover of cricket, this is a dream come true for me.
