38 & 40 Clarence Street, Cheltenham

38 & 40 Clarence Street are two independent but adjacent Grade II listed properties, originally forming part of a terrace of houses from circa 1830's; the ground floor shop fronts are a later 19th century addition.

Period features including high ceilings and large sash windows can be found within both properties. The properties are prominent and benefit from added kerb appeal with return frontage onto Crescent Place.

Internally, the basement, ground and part first floors of no. 40 provide a restaurant. The basement incorporates a kitchen, offices and cellar. The ground and first floors comprise the restaurant and event spaces, WC's, along with a second kitchen and preparation area on the first floor.

 The second and third floors of 40 Clarence Street comprise 4 apartments. Although there is at present no separate access to the apartments, planning consent (Ref No. 16/01069/LBC) has been obtained to create an internal opening resulting in access being available for these floors via a separate entrance to 38 Clarence Street.

38 Clarence Street comprises a smaller ground floor retail area as well as a lower ground floor retail area with small kitchen, storage and single WC. The first, second and third floors provide 3 apartments, accessed separately via Clarence Street. The properties could suit a range of occupiers, subject to planning.

EPC: The properties have an energy rating of:

38 Clarence Street - C (51)

40 Clarence Street - C (57)
