A spacious and beautifully finished townhouse forming part of an attractive street scene with parking, a garden studio, garden and off-road parking.
This exceptional house sits behind a gated entrance on the sought after Shurdington Road, less than half a mile from the Bath Road shops in one direction and a short commute of surrounding countryside in the other. The profile of the building is striking, it was designed to overlook the curated grounds to the front and open to the gardens at the rear. Set over three storeys, the internals extend to over 3407 Sq Ft of immaculate accommodation which has been the subject of continual improvements and enhancements by the current owners who have injected a contemporary approach to the space, volume, and natural light of the house.
The clever layout has been designed with family life and entertaining in mind, with free-flowing communal rooms in perfect balance with more formal space. Clever details have given a sociable and playful feel with the southerly side of the house, organised as a considerable, open plan kitchen/family room. The kitchen itself is beautifully appointed with a range of modern units and integrated appliances; a breakfast island with inset hob, divides the space to the family/dining area. This entire arrangement connects to outside, by way of a view from both rooms or, from the bi fold doors directly from the kitchen, merging the exterior and interior space to fully enjoy the garden. Adjacent is a sitting room and to the other side of the house is a formal drawing room with a feature square bay window and log burner. To the front of the house is a cinema room and behind this is a home office. There is a utility room in addition to a cloakroom on this level.
As with any of the best family homes the upstairs space is both impressive and balanced to that of the reception rooms. A staircase leads to a large landing area of which the bedrooms are elegantly set around. The master suite overlooks the lawns, at the rear, a beautiful room with a large, walk in dressing room and open en suite bathroom with twin sinks, free standing bath, and a separate shower. The guest room, also with en suite shower room, enjoys the same view in symmetry. The design of the floor has allowed for a bedroom three and a bathroom. On the second floor are two further bedrooms, one with a shower and cloakroom and one sits, adjacent to a further cloakroom.
The house offers an incredibly private plot, discreetly set behind a brick perimeter wall and accessed through high electric gate, revealing very little of the house from the front. The driveway sweeps around to the front of the property, with garaging to one side and beautifully curated gardens to the front with extensive patios framed with manicured trees and boxed hedging and a seating area. The extensive grounds continue along the side of the house and to the rear, where an expanse of level lawn is stocked with mature specimen trees, hedging, and fencing to the borders. This is a haven for families to play and enjoy in a space that is private and in view of the house. Within the rear garden is a detached studio making an ideal home office, gymnasium, or yoga studio.
Leckhampton is without doubt one of the most desirable and highly sought after pockets of Cheltenham. Mulberry House is set off Shurdington Road, less than half a mile stroll from the stylish Bath Road shops, which offer excellent day to day amenities, a lively café culture and boutique stores. To the other side of the property is quick and easy access to some beautiful walks on Leckhampton Hill, An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cheltenhams cosmopolitan centre is within walking distance, offering a fashionable selection of shops, Michelin starred restaurants, salons and bars. 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, The Cheltenham Ladies College, St Edwards and Dean Close. Owing to this and the cultural lifestyle on offer, including playing hosts to several highly acclaimed festivals, it is now regarded as one of the places to live and raise a family.
