Location - Hampton Court is situated between the popular Beaudesert Park Preparatory School and the picturesque little village of Box, on the south-west corner of Minchinhampton Common. This wonderful natural expanse of unspoilt countryside in the care of the National Trust gives this part of the Cotswolds its unique character, is open to anyone to enjoy on foot or on horseback, as well as hosting a challenging 18 hole golf course, one of three nearby. Minchinhampton is a charming little market town within 2 hours of London, about 45 minutes of Bristol and 40 minutes of Cheltenham by road, and benefits from being in the apex of the M4 and M5 motorways. By rail, regular services from Stroud into London Paddington are scheduled from 90 minutes. A very popular location for families as there are many excellent schools both in the state and private sectors locally, as well as those in Cheltenham who run their own transport for pupils. There are Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury's superstores in Stroud, while nearby Nailsworth has an exceptional range of independent retailers and an enviable reputation as a gastronomic centre with Williams Kitchen delicatessen and fresh fish counter and Hobbs award winning bakery, as well as several excellent restaurants and a choice of public houses. Cirencester and Tetbury are nearby and the rest of the Cotswolds is within easy reach.

Motorway M5 J13 Stroud - 5 miles, Motorway M4 J15 Swindon - 30 miles, Motorway M4 J18 Old Sodbury (Bath/Bristol) - 17 miles, Stroud Railway Station - 3.5 miles, Kemble Railway Station - 14.5 miles, Cheltenham (central) - 17 miles, Bristol Airport - 40 miles. Distances are approximate.

Description - Hampton Court is arguably one of the most exceptional properties on Minchinhampton Common, one of the jewels of the Cotswolds with its commanding views and protected status. Hampton Court itself has up to seven bedrooms, as well as self-contained detached annexe, and within its grounds the vendors have constructed a magnificent all purpose 2,450sq.ft. leisure complex. The latter also has planning permission for conversion to residential use to create a second spectacular house with its own driveway, if so desired. Plans are available from the Selling Agents and the Planning Reference is S.14/0856/FUL - Stroud District Council dated 12/06/2014.

Hampton Court itself is a fine example of an Edwardian country house in an elevated setting with south-westerly views. Re-configured by the vendors to suit twenty first century tastes, at its heart is a superb large kitchen/family space with an adjacent breakfast room, and there are three other reception rooms, one of which is a purpose made television room with a 69 inch wall mounted screen and surround sound. The master bedroom suite has a large sun deck from which to admire the views, there are four further bedrooms on this floor together with a bathroom and a shower room as well as a dressing room. There are two further rooms on the second floor. Off set from the house immediately across the driveway is a useful self-contained annexe for staff or a dependent relative. Detached, this has an en-suite shower room, a sitting room and kitchen. A broad terrace runs along the front of Hampton Court with borders, and the lawns are flanked by a traditional park fence with a level meadow beyond.

The Leisure Complex is situated a short distance beyond the house and is off set by a wonderful Italianate style garden with water features. The Leisure Complex has three elements. The Pool Room incorporating a 60ft. heated pool with a retractable cover, changing rooms with showers and a cloakroom, a Gym Studio and an Entertainment Suite all with under floor heating. The latter two rooms with solid bamboo floors and a surround sound system combine to make a fantastic party venue. Outside, there are sheltered seating areas and lovely views over an adjacent wild flower meadow flanked by mature trees.
