About this property

  • Run as a successful Bed and Breakfast business but with great income potential for a variety of uses, 125 Hales Road is a large and beautifully presented Grade II Listed house. With extensive living accommodation on three floors, the flexible space is currently arranged as nine bedrooms including seven with en suite shower rooms, supplemented by a further bathroom. On the ground floor is the traditional central hallway with reception rooms either side. The marvellous drawing room is to the left with a stunning fireplace and authentic ceiling cornicing. To the right of the hallway are two interconnecting reception rooms, currently used as a sitting room at the front and a dining room/study at the rear. At the back of the house is a cloakroom and the kitchen/breakfast room opening out in to the garden at the rear. Externally are really good sized grounds extending to about 0.35 acres with development potential (subject to planning permission). These include an in/out driveway at the front with a further driveway along the side of the house. There are lawned gardens with patio immediately at the back of the house with further parking beyond. There is a very useful detached outbuilding of 34 feet by 13 feet in size, with another lawn area beyond.

Local information

  • 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.
