Retail giant John Lewis has recently announced plans to transform the Beechwood Shopping Centre in Cheltenham. The £30 million plan to renovate the shopping centre, will invigorate Cheltenham High Street, making it the shopping hub of South West England.

The arrival of John Lewis, will have a profound effect on the shopping scene in Cheltenham by encouraging other retailers to the area. Regent Arcade Manager Scott Lahive said: "A new John Lewis can only be good news for all of the retailers on the High Street not just the Regent Arcade as there will undoubtedly be an increase in footfall as our catchment area extends”. Local residents have also welcomed the arrival of the new state of the art department store, which will be right on their doorstep.

Crest Nicholson’s exclusive development Regency Place, which is just a few metres away from the new John Lewis site, is an exclusive, gated, town-centre development of high specification homes, inspired by, and designed to reflect, the classic architecture and history of Cheltenham Spa. Its classic exterior is complimented by the modern and contemporary interior finishes and features. Among the perks of Regency Place’s prime location, is its close proximity to Cheltenham’s fabulous restaurants and bars, not to mention the theatre.

Recently launched at Regency Place is the stunning three bedroom Dowdeswell show home, which boasts high ceilings and contemporary design features such as Paula Rosa Manhattan designed kitchen. All homes at the development have been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of the modern homeowner whilst keeping the elegance and sophistication synonymous with Cheltenham Spa.

The three bedroom Dowdeswell show home is now open with prices starting from just £395,000.
