Cheltenham in Gloucestershire has topped the list of the most desirable place to live according to a new survey by Estate agent, Knight Frank
The regency spa town of Cheltenham is officially a property hot spot, with more homes being sold in this little corner of the UK than any other place in Britain, according to the latest research from estate agent, Knight Frank.
Home to the well-known racecourse and super posh ladies’ college, Cheltenham is packed with Regency properties and pretty residential streets. In January alone, over £15m-worth of property went under offer here through Knight Frank. Wowser!
So how does your local area fare? Is it on the property hot list or the homes z-list?
