An elegant small country estate set within about 10.5 acres.
Roundwood is an impressive Victorian residence dating back to around 1870 with late Georgian features. It has a handsome double fronted façade with a pillared covered entrance and tall sash window suggestive of the elegant grandeur within.
The house has been in the same family since the 1940s and has the welcoming and warm ambience of a country home which has been enjoyed and appreciated by generations through the years. As such this rarely-available house has had a very private history.
Roundwood comprises two storeys of flexible and refined accommodation with four principal reception rooms and nine first floor bedrooms. There is additional accommodation which might be re-configured to create a ground floor integral annexe; upstairs the bedrooms could be reduced to create suites. The attic space is also substantial and presents further opportunity for expansion of living space (subject to consent).
The superior and refined features throughout Roundwood have been carefully maintained to ensure it remains a fine period residence of enormous character with high ceilings, tall sash windows, ornamental cornicing, ornate panelling and plasterwork, with original carved fireplaces in a number of rooms.
Roundwood is set within impressive and mature private grounds and accessed via wrought iron double gates, leading to the sweeping driveway which winds through the wonderful grounds to the parking area to the front of the main house. There is a second access point off the Sunninghill Road with double gates which open to the shingle driveway and provides the nearest road access for The Cottages, situated to the north of the grounds at Roundwood. There are a number of parking areas for numerous vehicles, adjacent to The Cottages and the garage block, and a further field that can be used for large scale parking if required.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS

There are acres of pretty woodland with meandering pathways throughout, perfect for lazy walks and family adventures.

An orchard, fields and parkland with magnificent trees, formal gardens with extensive lawns and a pergola decked with wisteria further enhance the stunning setting.
