The ultimate working from home property: Grade II listed Cotswolds estate with boardroom, separate office buildings and meeting rooms goes on the market for £6.5million

  • Tormarton Court, near Badminton, features eleven bedrooms, five bathrooms and its own office buildings 
  • Georgian property is a former rectory which underwent extensive renovations in the 17th and 18th century
  • It boasts stunning gardens in 10-acre grounds alongside parkland, natural ponds and heated swimming pool

A Grade-II listed Cotswolds estate complete with an impressive boardroom, office buildings and dedicated meeting rooms has emerged on the market for £6.5million. 

Tormarton Court is set on beautiful 10-acre grounds on the edge of a farming village near Badminton in the Cotswolds, where billionaire entrepreneur James Dyson and the Duke of Beaufort are neighbours. 

The enormous property, originally a rectory, was built in the 16th century but underwent extensive alterations in the 17th and 18th century. It was remodelled again in 1812 for then-rector of St Mary Magdalene Church Lord William Somerset, the son of the Duke of Beaufort.  

The Church Commissioners sold the property to Edward Grigg, 1st Baron Altrincham, in 1929 – who renamed it Tormarton Court. It remained in the Grigg family until 1996, when the main house went through a dramatic overhaul under its current owner.      

The Georgian property features 9,462 sq ft of living space with eleven bedrooms, five bathrooms, a library and a grand reception hall. The main house also boasts a kitchen, pantry, sitting room, dining room, wine cellar and games room.

Alongside its elegant living quarters, which features the original stone floors, the Cotswolds estate also includes office accommodation across two further buildings.

Attached to the main house is The Coach House, once used for stabling and apartments but now converted to provide contemporary office suites with a large conference room, kitchen and bathroom. 

There is also a Grade-II listed detached stone barn – Somerset House – which has been converted to include a reception area, meeting rooms, offices, kitchen and toilets. 

The extensive office accommodation is accessed away from the main house and can be approached by a designated drive to keep work and home life entirely separate.

Beyond the formal gardens there is parkland, a natural pond and a large copse where the owners have invited a local nursery to undertake forest school. There is also an outdoor heated swimming pool. 

The enormous property has now been listed for sale for £6.5million by estate agents Strutt & Parker.

James Mackenzie said: ‘Tormarton Court is the ultimate work from home property. Anyone moving out of London wanting to re locate their headquarters to the Cotswolds need look no further.

‘It is so well situated with the M4 and M5 so close, with Bristol, Bath and Bristol Airport all in easy reach and Chippenham station is about 20 minutes away and is now only an hour by train to Paddington.

‘The owners used to run a large consultancy business from here. They now rent most of the space and have a very useful income. All the offices face away from the house. So you can have a home and forget about work and employees as no one comes past the main building.

‘The offices are stunning, situated near to everything but in the middle of the country*..a fabulous environment to work from. The offices are definitely the USP and makes this house truly one of a kind.

Tormarton Court also features stunning gardens, which have previously been opened to the public under the National Garden Scheme

‘The house is a perfect Georgian family home with stunning gardens and a walled garden with the coolest pool. It sits between James Dyson’s estate and the Duke of Beaufort’s estate, so you are amongst pedigree neighbours.

‘You just don’t come across a set up like this every day. You can live like a king in one of the most prestigious houses in the Cotswolds with your business quarters just next door.

‘Tormarton Court is a really special property thanks to its unbeatable location and all that it offers – when it comes to the full package it really doesn’t get better than this.’
