De La Bere House, Bayshill Road, Cheltenham

Built circa 1839-1850 originally as a semi-detached villa, De La Bere House now forms one of three Grade II listed buildings over four floors. An impressive and secure entrance into the property leads you to ground floor level.

The ground and first floors provide a number of rooms that have been decorated to create a modern feel but with a combination of fine period features such as high ceilings, sash windows, and picture railings. The ceiling height to these floors is approximately 3 metres.

The lower ground floor also provides very useable office accommodation with some storage. The second floor is split into four offices with WC and tea point.

Each floor benefits from ample natural light, there are shared WC and kitchen facilities to the property.

Externally there is an extensive car park which can accommodate at least 20 cars.

EPC: The building is listed and therefore believed to be exempt.
