There are five principal bedrooms on the floor and three bath/shower rooms. The master bedroom has a lovely south-west facing balcony leading off. On the second floor is a further bedroom and a large playroom/bedroom.
Hampton Court occupies an excellent private setting, tucked away down a private driveway on the edge of Box. This pretty Cotswold small town of Minchinhampton is under a mile away, with a good range of everyday shops and services as well as pubs and restaurants. Nearby Nailsworth is a well-equipped town with good shopping and other local towns include Cirencester, Stroud and Tetbury. The main regional centres are Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bath and Bristol.
Educational facilities within the area are excellent and include Beaudesert Park (within walking distance), Wycliffe College at Stonehouse, Rendcomb, Westonbirt and Pinewood, as well as the Cheltenham Colleges. A number of excellent grammar schools including Stroud High School for girls and Marling School for boys.
A mainline intercity rail service to London Paddington is available from Kemble or Stroud stations, the former scheduled to take from about 78 minutes. Excellent walks and rides on Minchinhampton Common and in the surrounding countryside. A wide choice of sporting facilities. There is a golf course on the Minchinhampton Common and also the popular Minchinhampton Golf Club which has three courses, about 2 miles away. Many equestrian events including Badminton Horse Trials, polo at Cirencester and Westonbirt and National Hunt racing at Cheltenham.
Hampton Court is approached via a right of way over the neighbouring driveway leading to a large parking and turning area to the north east of the house. Adjoining this is a one-bedroom detached annexe, ideal for guests or family. It has a useful storeroom at one end.
Along the south western side of the house is a large paved terrace, perfect for barbecues. Lawned gardens lie below with masses of space for children's games, football, trampolines etc. To the south is the leisure complex, built in 2009 by the vendors. Designed in a sleek contemporary style and faced in Cotswold stone, this comprises a 60 foot heated indoor pool with retractable cover, a separate gym and a large games/party room, all of which overlook the gardens and grounds.
There are various paved terraces and sitting out areas and below are a series of small gardens enclosed within beech hedging. There is a paddock below the house and a further field or wild flower meadow at the southern end of the property.
The property also owns a separate driveway running along the eastern boundary. This is particularly useful as it provides a separate access to the Leisure Complex. Planning permission was granted in 2014 for its conversion to form an independent dwelling. Further details are available on request.
