Welcome to Mole End, a detached residence located on the outskirts of Cheltenham in the desirable village of Southam. The property itself, believed to be built in 1937 sits elevated to the road that it is located upon and as such offers exceptional views from the front elevation across open countryside towards Cheltenham racecourse. The village of Southam sits just four miles outside of central Cheltenham and can be access by car within 10 minutes. The village also borders the larger villages of Bishops Cleeve, Woodmancote and Winchcombe with all three villages having local facilities to include a shop, post office and public houses plus all three offer a primary school whilst Bishops Cleeve and Winchcombe offer secondary schooling with 6th form facilities and a thriving High Street Returning to the property, Mole End offers a large driveway frontage allowing parking for multiple cars whilst also benefiting from a detached single garage. Once inside the property, there is a welcoming entrance hall with wood panelling, traditional parquet flooring and an enclosed staircase. There are two formal reception rooms, both having characteristics from the period of construction to include high ceilings, open fireplaces, picture rail and lead lattice windows, which flood the rooms full of natural light. Since the current owners took possession of the property in 2013, they have completed a sizeable extension to the ground floor and so the property now also offers a large open plan kitchen/dining room. There is a wealth of fitted units and integrated appliances one would expect in today`s modern kitchen as well as a central island. The kitchen is light and airy, due to multiple windows around the room and the glazed French doors found to the rear that lead out onto the garden.
The ground floor is completed by the recently added master bedroom which also comes complete with an en suite shower room and walk in dressing room. Furthermore, the ground floor gives access to a declining stairwell which leads to the basement area. This area, which is not only perfect for storing a family`s belongings, also houses a utility area and is where the washing machine and tumble dryer can be located, along with the boiler. Upstairs and the charismatic charm of this 1930`s family home continues. The rooms are square and traditional in appearance, each one having lead lattice windows and picture rails. The bedrooms to the front offering even better views than the ground floor, the extra height really allowing one to enjoy the outlook. The bedrooms to the rear, also offer a lovely outlook, across the mature and established rear garden. All the rooms to this floor are a good size and comprise of three double bedrooms and one single. Upstairs is completed by the family bathroom and separate cloakroom. Outside, the rear garden is mature and established offering formal lawns, seating areas and an abundance of trees and shrubs. To the head of the garden the current owners have installed a home office which is a wonderful size and because of its position, enjoys the views. The office is light due to the wall of glass found at the front, offers light, power, telephone and broadband connection Mole End really is a delightful family home that offers space, both inside and out where a family can grow and enjoy the countryside yet can be in the centre of Cheltenham, enjoying the hustle and bustle of town life and all the wonders that Cheltenham offers within a short drive
