Stunning views and chic interiors await at this incredible £5.5 million estate near Cheltenham Racecourse.

With Gloucestershire being home to the jewel in horse racing's crown, Cheltenham Racecourse, it's only right that this month's featured property is a stunning home with the glorious sporting grounds as its neighbour — following all the equestrian exhilaration of this year's Cheltenham Festival.

Prospective buyers will have a hard time saying 'neigh' to this incredible £5.5 million estate — SoGlos gallops over to the fantastically connected rural location of Sovereign View in Charlton Kings to check it out.

The lowdown

This gorgeous Cotswold stone home is as modern as they come — and wouldn't look out of place as a blockbuster movie location depicting a superhero's headquarters.

With six bedrooms and six accompanying bathrooms, York House was built by an award-winning construction company with precise attention to detail and modern living in mind.

Backing on to the Battledown Estate, the 6,301 sq ft abode offers an awe-inspiring view of Cheltenham Racecourse, perfect for racing fans.

Exterior highlights

Constructed with Cotswold stone elevations and zinc cladding, the home features an apt amount of floor-to-ceiling windows — the best accessory to make the most of the impressive vista of its special surroundings.

Security covered, the home sits behind black wrought iron railings and is accessed via keypad-entry double wooden gates engraved with the home's moniker, only adding to the property's sophistication.

Ample off-road parking space on an expansive driveway and a subterranean double garage with electric doors and EV charging point are also features worth noting, as well as the landscaped gardens mostly laid to lawn with preened hedging — for ultimate privacy.

A sweeping balcony terrace wraps around the sitting room on the second floor, offering incredible views of the surrounding countryside and plenty of space for outdoor furniture for summer evenings spent relaxing with friends and family.

Interior highlights

Spread out over two floors, a stone staircase leads into a reception hallway, giving access to the main living space which includes an open-plan kitchen and living room area — with underfloor heating installed throughout.

The bespoke kitchen includes an array of floor- and wall-mounted units and an enviably large central island, fitted with Gaggenau appliances and a wine fridge — cooking will never be the same when it's complemented by views into the rear garden from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

The sparkle of abundant spotlights illuminate the expansive rooms throughout the home, and across from the kitchen is a large gallery room offering potential for a dining space.

Other rooms on the second floor include a snug or cinema room; a study, a large sitting room; a shower room and a music room — the latter also featuring its own private terrace accessed from sleek sliding doors, apt for budding rock stars and creative dreamers looking for inspiration from the great outdoors.

Moving downstairs to the six bedrooms, each have their own glamourous ensuite shower room or bathroom, with the principle bedroom including its own dressing room — presenting a truly luxurious living experience fit for the top-achieving jockeys!

Not leaving the other bedrooms out, they also feature incredible bespoke wardrobes with internal lighting and underfloor heating — making busy early morning rushes that little bit easier.

Of course, the absolute highlight of this home are the views that surround it, all excellently facilitated by the house's design and arrangement.

Rolling hills of British countryside are just a stone's throw away, providing endless opportunities for an outdoor lifestyle — bracing walks and alfresco activities abound with this stunning property.
