Zara and her family live on Princess Anne’s vast estate, the 730-acre Gatcombe Park. However, the former Olympian and her husband, Mike, used to live in a £1.69million mansion in Cheltenham. Despite being a four-floor house that has been described in the past as “pretty epic”, Zara wanted to move to Gatcombe Park. What, then, makes her current property so special?
The Tindalls sold their former £1.69million home in Cheltenham back in 2013, before moving to live on the Gatcombe Park estate.
Called Hallery House, the Cheltenham property had jaw-dropping interiors, complete with a hot tub, cinema, and gym.
Described by royal fan Alessio La Ruffa as “pretty epic” on Instagram, the townhouse is a Grade II listd property with four floors and almost 5,000 square feet of space.
When Zara and Mike lived there, the living room had triple floor to celing sash windows, intricate ceiling mouldings, and a large wood burner in the centre of the room.

In 2018, the couple submitted plans to add a conservatory to their home as part of a two-storey extension.
This meant that their floor area increased from 115.5msq to 135.5sq, according to reports, with a greater work surface area in their new open-plan kitchen and dining room, as well as in their new ground floor toilet and utility area.
The couple are relatively private, but while being interviewed on TV, such as by ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Mike has shared glimpses of his and Zara’s home with fans.
In an interview with The One Show in August 2020, the former rugby player revealed an Union Jack print behind him, as well as a curved table lamp with a cream shade, and a grey armchair.

In another interview, grey sofas with red checkered cushions were seen behind Mike.
Zara also appeared on Good Morning Britain, talking about how she felt very lucky to be in the countryside during the pandemic. She said: “We’re out in the country, we are on the farm, and we’ve still got to look after the horses.
“So I can’t imagine how hard it is for people in the city. But trying to stay safe and not put pressure on our NHS.”
Zara seemed to be in a room covered with cream walls, wooden roof panelling, and a kettle in the background balancing on what looked like a mantelpiece or shelf.
The Tindalls also have their very own gym, as unveiled by Mike when he participated in a charity bike ride in April last year. It had exposed brick walls with a Union Jack flag on display, as well as an exercise bike.
Zara’s brother, Peter, is also a neighbour to the couple, as well as Princess Anne. Perer loves with his daughters Isla and Savannah on the estate.
Gatcombe Park has been Anne’s home since 1976, when it was bought privately by the late Queen for the Princess and her then-husband, Captain Mark Phillips.
The estate is the former home of the Festival of British Eventing, and Zara herself has often competed there.
It was reported to have been bought for around £750,000.
