One Bayshill Road, Cheltenham


Pegasus Life/Lifestory




MEP Design

Nestled in the historic Montpellier district, One Bayshill Road in Cheltenham stands as a contemporary marvel, seamlessly connecting two Grade II listed villas to form a landmark development of retirement living apartments.

This modern building, meticulously designed, offers one, two, and three-bedroom apartments developed to an exceptionally high specification. Residents have the unique choice of traditional apartments within the Grade II listed building or embracing a modern lifestyle within the seamlessly integrated element.

Beyond the individual residences, the development boasts communal living spaces, concierge services, automated parking, and guest suites. Notably, residents can indulge in wellness facilities like a gym, herbal sauna, steam room, treatment rooms, and a hydrotherapy pool. The onsite kitchen/dining area with a resident chef completes the offering, providing a restaurant-style environment for shared meals or convenient delivery to individual apartments.
