    About this property

    • Tormarton Court is an outstanding family home. It is a beautifully proportioned period house set within its own exceptional 10 acre grounds and gardens where a family can enjoy all the freedom of a large house with a strong emphasis on entertainment spaces both inside and outside.

      This small private estate is perfect for a growing family as it comes with flexible secondary accommodation. The current owners have also created a thriving business environment.

      For the discerning buyer looking for fine period features this house provides them in abundance and most notably features an oval roof lantern that gives natural light above a beautiful oak staircase. Panelled doors, delicate cornicing, fanlights, original stone floors and working fireplaces all add to the texture and wealth of this beautiful house.

      The ecclesiastical heritage of a former inhabitant is reflected in the entrance hall with what would have been the Rector's room now used as a family sitting room. This leads onto a spacious inner central hall which features the beautiful roof lantern and from which all the main reception rooms lead. It is worth noting that from both the morning room and drawing room there is access onto large terraces, features not always found in houses of this period.

      The large family kitchen which overlooks the courtyard also has a separate walk-in pantry and an adjacent elegant breakfast room. Along the same corridor are other domestic areas which include a large boot room and games room which, having separate access to the outside, also means that visiting teenagers do not need to come through the main house!

      The generous and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor work particularly well for any family. Depending on how the floor is used it is easy to envisage a guest wing that little bit more removed from the private family bedrooms.

      The second floor gives even greater flexibility with a number of rooms available for a variety of uses including a gym.

    This beautiful Georgian family home is on my doorstep and I cannot recommend this area more highly as a wonderful place to live!

    Local information

    • The village of Tormarton, once part of the Badminton Estate, is an attractive collection of Cotswold stone properties situated in South Gloucestershire on the border with Wiltshire.
    • It is therefore ideally located close to junction 18 of the M4 ensuring excellent communications to London, Bath and Bristol.
    • Heathrow Airport is 90 miles and Bristol Airport 23 miles.
    • The countryside around Tormarton is very beautiful with the Cotswold Way passing through the village towards Bath in the south and Chipping Camden in the north.
    • Numerous sporting activities are on your doorstep with racing and rugby at Bath and Cheltenham along with golf at Castle Combe. The world-famous International Horse Trials at Badminton are an annual fixture along with polo at Cirencester and The Beaufort Polo Clubs.
    • The many excellent independent schools in Bath (Kingswood and the Royal High benefit from a school bus service from the village) and Bristol along with St. Mary's Calne, Westonbirt and Beaudesert are all considered to be within easy driving distance.

    Additional information

    • The gardens and grounds at Tormarton Court extend to over 10 acres. This private paradise captures every season and mood.
    • The house is approached by a generous gravel drive and forecourt to the north front and features a pleached hornbeam and clipped box parterre which provides an added dimension to the facade.
    • A beautiful walled garden, now fully restored is at the centre of the gardens. It incorporates formal lawn areas, a highly productive kitchen garden, a flower cutting garden along with espaliered and fanned fruit trees.
    • A quite remarkable mature laburnum vine and wisteria covered arch leads to a centrally located heated outdoor swimming pool (with automated safety cover). This makes for a very spoiling summer entertainment venue with a dining terrace and BBQ area.
    • Closer to the house is an Italian inspired courtyard garden and leading from the main reception rooms are large formal gardens with herbaceous borders, a rose garden and terracing which captures the evening sunshine.
    • With a natural pond on the southern boundary and a large copse to the west, the park could also accommodate space enough for a tennis court, stabling (subject to the necessary planning consents) and grazing.
    • The quality of the gardens are such that the current owners have opened them as part of the National Garden Scheme.
    • Somerset House
    • Orientated away from the main house, this large detached period stone barn has been converted to a very high standard to provide significant (2842 sq ft) space. It is currently let providing significant rental income and will add to the SDLP and Mixed Use status of this property. There is approval in principle to convert to residential use. There is a separate parking area away from the main house for up to 20 cars which is ideal as overflow parking for parties.
    • The Coach House
    • Although currently arranged as further additional office space (and indeed used largely by the current owners), this handsome set of buildings (which has dual commercial and residential planning consent) would make particularly good secondary residential accommodation to the main house. Depending upon the requirements of the owner it would be ideal as staff accommodation or use by a dependent relative. Alternatively it could be a separate letting property.
