Welcome to Beechfell, a detached single storey dwelling located in the fabulous development that is Salterley Grange, which enjoys spacious, light and airy accommodation and currently enjoys three bedrooms, additionally the current owners have successfully obtained planning permission to extend the middle section of the property and in doing so, have the ability to create an additional floor which will allow the property to offer five double bedrooms, with three of the rooms enjoying en suite bath/shower rooms and a further family bathroom.
Add in that the property enjoys wrap around gardens, driveway parking, a detached double garage and complete seclusion whilst only being a ten-minute drive to the heart of Cheltenham and having direct access onto the Cotswold Way, it suddenly becomes very clear as to why this property comes with a high recommendation to view, which is only further enhanced as the property is offered for sale with no onward chain.
Salterley Grange Estate dates back to circa 1860 and was built as a grand private residence. The main home and grounds were purchased in 1908 by Birmingham Town Council as used for health purposes. In 1948 the grounds went to the Cheltenham Hospital Management Committee in conjunction with the creation of the National Health Service. It ran as this until 1969 when it was converted back to luxury private residences.
Situated at the top of Leckhampton Hill the property enjoys wonderful views to all aspects. Located just 2.5 miles from the Bath Road shopping area you are able to experience a lovely quiet rural feel while retaining access to excellent amenities. The Bath Road is a popular shopping area with a variety of supermarkets, banks, independent retailers and a post office. Slightly further is the fashionable Montpellier and Suffolk area which is filled with popular boutiques, cafes, restaurants and bars. The centre of Cheltenham offers a wide range of chain stores and restaurants. Famed for its beautiful Georgian architecture Cheltenham one of few Regency Spa towns and enjoys a host of cultural and popular festivals. The Literature, Music, Food & Drink are the main highlights and draw people from all over the country.
The property offers great access to the A417 if you are looking to get to Cirencester, Oxford, Swindon or further south the M4. M5 north and south bound offers access to Bristol and Birmingham. Cheltenham Spa Railway has regular trains to Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and London.
Returning to the property, the home has a very distinct look and is somewhat Mediterranean with its well-stocked flower beds, which are full of colour and vibrancy and paved seating areas, dotted throughout the gardens.
Internally, the home enjoys plenty of natural light from the large picture windows, with most rooms benefitting from double aspect windows. The home enjoys two formal reception rooms, being the living room, with log burning stove inset to the chimney breast and the dining room. Additional rooms include the kitchen, complete with four oven AGA and the study.
Proceeding through the building, there are three bedrooms, two of which benefit from an en suite whilst completing the accommodation is a utility area, hall, boiler room, with the home having recently had a new Air Source Heating system installed and shower room.
Turning to the proposals granted for the home, there are elements of the existing building that remain with the main changes taking place to the central part of the property. In line with the planning permission granted, the ground floor still retains the two formal reception rooms, study, and the larger of the three bedrooms.
The significant change to this floor is that one of the bedrooms is lost to create a larger and much improved kitchen/breakfast room and the slightly smaller of the current bedrooms is increased so creating two well proportioned double rooms to the ground floor, both of which benefit from en suites.
A staircase is then installed to give access to the new first floor where there will be three further double bedrooms, one of which having an en suite and the remaining two bedrooms sharing the family shower room.
Predicted costs for the extension have been given in the region of £100,000 + VAT and we would think that once internal specifications have been chosen and added, a total net spend of £150,000 is likely.
We also believe that the predicted re sale of the building once completed would be in the region of £1,250,000 - £1,350,000.
