Every once in a while an agent brings to the market a property where the position and location are so dramatic and stunning they become a feature that draws a buyer in. This property on the slopes of Cleeve Hill did just that for the current owner when purchased via Adam Halliwell, the current selling agent. The property needed a lot of updating at that time, much of which has now been done, though it's fair to say it's not yet finished. Planning permission was approved for two extensions to this house, one of which has been built and provides an amazing living/kitchen/dining space with full glass doors across the rear of the property. The other is to provide a two storey extension to the side giving another bedroom with amazing south westerly views and en-suite. This is yet to be built. See planning reference 18/00401/FUL, Tewkesbury Borough Council.
The property is accessed via a private road at the end of Haymes Drive. This is off the left of the Cleeve Hill Road just after the lay by if ascending the hill. It's is the last one in the road, with a good parking and turning area out the front. The original 1960's style home now has a contemporary twist with new style recycled plastic cladding and rendering to bring it up to modern standards. There is a garage to the side with utility area behind though that would be demolished and re built if the buyer was to finish off the extensions as approved. Once inside, a hallway runs along the front of the house with staircase out and a refitted cloakroom housing the gas boiler. To the front is a good sized study. A room required for modern day living with so many now working from home. The hall opens into the main room with a breath-taking room view. This is such a sociable space as the hub of the home, and also an excellent area to entertain and hold a party. Every spot of this room has a westerly view out over Cheltenham and to the Welsh mountains and the Malverns. You can see for miles on a clear day. Whether you are at the dining table, cooking or on the sofa, that view is never far away. At night is changes as the lights show the path of the roads like snaking runway landing strips. You can see the weather coming in from miles away and the hills in the distance. The kitchen area is wonderfully appointed with stylish units and integrated appliances to include: Oven, Combination oven/microwave, warming drawer, induction hob, dishwasher, boiling tap, integrated fridge and integrated bin cupboard. Off this room is the formal lounge, a cosy but sizable room at 20' x 11' with doors out onto the garden again. I suspect this may take the role as a private, parental living room or even as a cinema room. It could also be a playroom. Currently it requires some cosmetic finishing off.
These principle rooms open out onto the garden. Whilst sloped in places it's a haven of tranquillity and a place to lose yourself and the children. The garden is 140' x 60' feet though feels so much longer than that given it steps down and has these great separate areas. It has been softly landscaped by the current owners and leads down to secret garden at the end with trees, lawns and mature shrubs. For those with children you can send them out to play and they have their own wilderness to enjoy before coming back in for dinner. A smaller version of the real Cleeve Hill open spaces, a short walk away.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a bathroom currently. By doing the second extension as planned, it would create four double bedrooms, two with en-suites and a main bathroom. The master with a wonderful viewing area and full length doors.
This property and location are truly special and whilst it does need some finishing off and would benefit from the second extension, it is, and could be an even better home. I remember my mentor in agency said to me 28 years ago "You can change most things about a house apart from where it is". You certainly wouldn't want to change this location. It would be great to see this house completed, though it already offers so many wonderful things. Contact the agent, Adam Halliwell, for more information and any questions you may have. The property is situated in a no through road so please ask the agent any questions and arrange an early viewing.
