PegasusLife will be opening up John Dower House for the general public to visit as part of Cheltenham Heritage Open Days 2018.
Run by the Cheltenham Civic Society, this is a unique opportunity to view the Grade II Listed house, which is part of PegasusLife's Clarence Gardens development.
Recently subject to a significant restoration programme, the Grade II listed building dates back to 1812 and has served as a police station and a hotel.
The restored John Dower House is now complete and forms part of the Clarence Gardens development alongside two new blocks that are due to complete in 2019.
The Cheltenham Heritage Open Days offer a unique opportunity for history fans to view this restored gem before it starts its new life as apartments for the over-60s.
Clarence Gardens offers a variety of properties including 67 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in Latheram House, two contemporary cottages along with 11 bespoke apartments within the original Georgian property itself.
Clarence Gardens celebrates the architectural history of Cheltenham, whilst also offering the best of modern design.
The apartments are connected by lush courtyards, peaceful cloisters and interlocking pathways centred on a reflective pool, creating both a peaceful and sociable development.
With a communal lounge, shared outdoor spaces, social kitchen and guest suite, where visiting friends and family can stay overnight, Clarence Gardens has been designed to foster a real sense of community.
Clarence Gardens will be open for Cheltenham Heritage Open Days on September 13-16 from 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm.
To view the show apartment at Clarence Gardens, visit Crescent Place, Cheltenham, GL50 3RA or call 01242 312133. Prices at Clarence Gardens start from £499,950.
