Due to the amount of interest in this property we are seeking best & final offers by 12pm 1st November 2021.
Widecombe is a charming, semi-detached family house which has undergone some recent renovations but would benefit from further upgrading. The current owners have had detailed drawings prepared for remodelling and extending the kitchen/breakfast room area to offer a large open plan kitchen/dining/family room with doors out to the gardens, and a separate utility room and cloakroom. And on the first floor, combining the current (dated) bathroom and separate wc into a large family bathroom with walk in shower and separate bath. The spacious and light accommodation, which is arranged over three floors, is set out to take advantage of the stunning views over Cheltenham to Cleeve Hill and the Malvern Hills. The property is believed to date from the late Victorian/early Edwardian era and retains many period features including sash windows, stained glass in the main door panels, bay windows in the drawing/dining room and master bedroom as well as a decorative, original fireplace in bedroom three and a small tower on the north west corner of the property.
Outside the property is approached via a tarmacadam driveway providing parking for several cars and leading onwards to the large garage. This is partially insulated and plywood lined making a useful workshop area.
The gardens lie to the front and rear of the property where they predominantly face south west. Mainly laid to lawn with a path leading through to a further secret' garden area, which used to contain a hard tennis court, and is now laid to lawns benefitting from a good degree of privacy. In all the property sits in about 0.35 acres.

There is an elegant charm to this home, and a real feeling of being above Cheltenham, some great views, a surprise 'extra' garden and the drawings for the new kitchen/dining/family space look really exciting!Catherine Anderson
