Investment opportunity - Grade II listed building, Hill Court Road, Cheltenham
By Matt Hall
Hill Court is a substantial detached Grade II Listed Building dating from the early to mid-19th century.
The building has been converted to 9 flats over basement and three upper floors with front hardstanding for car parking. The building is now in need of further renovation, repair, modernisation and decoration.
Hill Court retains a significant number of its period features including extensive moulded cornices and period doors and architraving. It is considered that the property offers an opportunity for being renovated and returned to a large single dwelling or being refurbished to provide a number of select apartments in an excellent residential location.
Hill Court is located within 300m of the entrance to Cheltenham Racecourse and close to UCAS Head Office about 1 mile to the north of Cheltenham Town Centre with access via the A435 Evesham Road.
There are nine lock up garages together with four smaller stores along the eastern side of the rear boundary. Parking is provided on the front forecourt with additional space to the rear of the site. The total site area extends to about 0.48 acre.
Potential development land
The rear car parking area and the garages are the subject of a separate planning application (now withdrawn) which show the clear possibility of the land accommodating perhaps two detached houses or some other form of development. (The proposed development involved demolition of the existing garages and stores).
The planning reference for the withdrawn application 19/00827/FUL at Cheltenham Borough Council. In addition to renovation being required of Hill Court, it is considered there may be a prospect for additional accommodation being provided within the current area of the building (subject to the necessary consents).
