An outstanding two storey detached house in a peaceful elevated setting on the Battledown Estate, with extensive accommodation, outstanding views and just under half an acre of gardens.
Edgehill is located on the prestigious Battledown Estate, a former Victorian estate of a limited number of exclusive houses overlooking Cheltenham.
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 which recently topped the national GCSE schools league table.
Now a highly sought after place to live (voted the number one place in the United Kingdom to bring up a family by the Telegraph early in 2015), 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.
Edgehill is a substantial two storey modern detached home in a private and secluded setting on the exclusive Battledown estate.
Situated at the lower end of a substantial driveway, the house is tucked nicely away from passing traffic, with the rear of the house facing West, thus enjoying a huge amount of sun, particularly on the first floor elevated deck. The deck overlooks the stunning landscaped garden, with a very level lawn garden, patio areas for entertaining and a hot tub to the side, with an external staircase from the master bedroom.
One of the great appeals of the house is the amount of light which floods in through the Western aspect, with the vast majority of the rooms enjoying full height windows or patio doors on to either the deck or the patio.
There are five bedrooms, all double rooms, including a 23 ft master bedroom incorporating a dressing area leading to a five piece en suite bathroom. Two further bathrooms serving the remaining four bedrooms.
The kitchen is well equipped with a wide granite topped island and integrated appliances, flanked on one side by the dining room and the other the sitting room. Two flights of stairs lead, at either end of the house, to the lower level, with an open plan living/games room, with a further door in to the cinema and a large boiler room, ideal for storage.
Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
