    About this property

    • 8 Leckhampton Road is a commanding Victorian house in a fantastic location. Beautifully renovated and extended, the owners have perfectly blended contemporary design with period features to create a spacious and light family home. Finished to an exceptional standard, the generous and versatile accommodation is arranged over four floors and offers approximately 2688 sq ft of living space.

      The entrance hall provides spacious access to the principle reception rooms. An elegant sitting room is located at the front of the house and has a gas fire and a large bay window with plantation blinds. Adjoined is a spacious dining room complete with built-in cupboards and a large window with views to the garden. There is an open plan family room leading into the kitchen/dining room which is an amazingly light space, ideal for entertaining. The kitchen is fitted with modern units, integrated appliances and dual aspect large sliding glass doors opening out onto the walled garden and large patio terrace. The remaining ground floor accommodation is completed by a cloakroom, coat/storage cupboard and access to the garage and utility area.

      Closed stairs lead down to an impressive lower ground floor room which is currently used a playroom but could also be used as a private study or further sixth bedroom.

      The first floor provides four impressive bedrooms, one of which is complemented by a modern en suite shower room and large bay window to the front. Three rooms also feature original fireplaces. There is a beautifully appointed family bathroom with separate shower.

      On the top floor is a striking, contemporary loft conversion exclusively used for a principal bedroom and en suite. Accessed via a bespoke open-tread feature staircase, this is a truly iconic space with large expanses of glass offering far-reaching and relaxing views to the rooftops and hills beyond. Features include; exposed brickwork, bespoke integrated drawers and wardrobes, Mandarin Stone tiles, Italian sanitary ware with copper fittings, underfloor heating, luxurious roll top bath and spacious walk in shower enclosure.

      Outside, there is a generous garden enclosed by a red brick wall and fenced to the southern boundary with access to the rear and a shed. The garden is low maintenance with an expanse of lawn and a large patio/terrace which is perfect for al fresco dining. There is also a garage with a spacious driveway allowing parking for several vehicles. The large garden with separate rear access off Langdon Road also offers a potential development opportunity with planning permission previously granted for a single storey dwelling, (now lapsed).

    Local information

    • Leckhampton is a highly sought after area of Cheltenham located just a mile from the town centre. The increasingly popular Bath Road is very close by and offers a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants creating a strong feeling of community in the area. Both Naunton Park and Leckhampton Primary Schools are within walking distance and there is good access up Leckhampton Hill and out to the A46, A417 and the motorway network to most major cities. In addition to the outstanding Primary School catchment, the home is also in the planned catchment area for the new Balcarras run Leckhampton High School.
    • Less than a hundred miles from London, Cheltenham 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 which recently topped the national GCSE schools league table.
    • 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.
