Local information

  • College Road is a popular tree lined residential road close to the centre of Cheltenham and close to Sandford Park. Alexandra Villa is found roughly halfway along the road with a South East facing rear garden with a small front courtyard setting the house slightly back from the road.
  • Cheltenham is famed as one of the most complete Regency towns in England and historically the original and most fashionable spa.
  • Less than a hundred miles from London it nestles beautifully between the Cotswold Hills and the Wye Valley, and is home to numerous prestigious schools including Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College, Dean Close and Pates Grammar.
  • Now a highly sought after place to live the town is well known for its grand houses set amongst formal avenues and beautiful garden squares.
  • For those with a taste for the finer things in life, there are Michelin starred restaurants, numerous bars, stylish shops and salons aplenty. For art and history lovers there is The Wilson, Cheltenham's newly refurbished museum and art gallery, whilst Cheltenham also has a thriving cultural scene that includes two concert halls and three theatres. There are the numerous festivals such as The Wychwood Festival, the festivals of literature, science, food and drink and, perhaps the pinnacle for some, the jazz festival, which has historically attracted such known performers as Van Morrison, Jamie Cullum and Jools Holland.
  • Undoubtedly for many more, the highlight of the year is the annual racing festival culminating with the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the blue riband event of the national hunt calendar, and an attraction that draws the public to the town year after year.
