Mike Tindall and Zara Phillips first lived in Cheltenham before they moved into Princess Anne's Gatcombe Park in 2013. The couple announced their engagement on the grounds of the property, named Hallery House, in December 2010, but the home remained private otherwise. Then, the home went up for sale by its new owners (who bought the property from Mike and Zara for £1.2million in 2013) for £1.69million in 2017, and the photos included an entire interiors tour.

The building

The townhouse is listed as a Grade II property, set over four floors with almost 5,000 square feet of space. Nick Chivers of Knight Frank who listed the property told the Daily Mail, "The Tindalls weren't here that long but they refurbished it to what it is now. The current owners bought it from them and have gone on to improve it further by building a double garage which completes the package. The house is detached, which is pretty rare for townhouses in Cheltenham, and there's lots of great amenities close by. The basement could be used as a separate self-contained apartment, so it's a massively flexible property."

The bedroom

Inside, the home has a spacious master bedroom, as well as six additional bedrooms. The master suite has three enormous bay windows with sash shutters, and is decorated with cream walls and wooden floors. Nick Chivers of Knight Frank added that Mike and Zara had designed the property to look exactly how it did at the time. "The Tindalls did a great job of making it look very beautiful," he said.
