A rare opportunity to acquire a very substantial Grade II listed Victorian house with four floors of living space with a further unlisted residential lodge.
Dewerstone House is located on the corner of College View and Thirlestaine Road with the Western elevation overlooking the sports ground of Cheltenham College. The property is well positioned for access in to the town and is close to excellent routes to the South. Dewerstone Lodge is located on the corner of Thirlestaine Road and Christowe Lane, with an access off the latter.
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 1 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.
