Lynskey Cooper CX vs GR250 as a do all road bike

I am currently looking at these two as options for a new bike. I am currently using a Kona Jake the Snake for this ride. It performs well enough and has helped me lose quite a bit of weight, given its health related effects I can justify a new ride and put fenders on the Snake for wet weather and for winter riding, quite useful in southwestern PA. I am fifty six years old and looking for a bike for riding country roads primarily. Most of these are decent, the repairs often create more of a mess than the cracks and holes by causing moguls and speed bumps from the repairs which can be bad(think rumble strip like). I will probably never use anything bigger than a 700x32 on this bike. Having a hard time deciding which of these would be more useful as a road type bike. Looking at the geometry and the wheel base Of these two have me making a case for either and I know there is no way for a test ride. So I throw this question out there to those more knowledgeable than myself. Posted this below in the CX section, copied it here hoping for more input.
