The Roundtown Estate is a truly spectacular block of rolling Hampshire countryside within striking distance of London. It represents a rare opportunity to acquire over 1,000 acre ring fenced block of commercial farmland interspersed with beautiful mature woodland and historic parkland.

The estate is entered off a quiet country lane with the drive meandering half a mile alongside post and rail paddocks flanked by a mature woodland belt. The drive comes to a circular gravelled parking area to the north of the house surrounded by wonderful mature oaks on the edge of the wider estate.

Roundtown House is a unique conversion and extension of a Grade II listed lodge in a mature woodland setting. The former cottages to Hackwood Park underwent a successful project preserving its interesting architectural details achieving an extremely comfortable home ideal for family life and entertaining.

The house has a series of excellent reception rooms including the drawing room, garden room, dining room, 2 sitting rooms and a study. There is a large main bedroom suite with dressing room/second bedroom and ensuite bathroom, along with a principal guest suite, 2 further ensuite bedrooms and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

The majority of rooms have lovely outlooks over the large lawned garden and mixed woodland beyond. Adjacent to the house is a stable block with stables, storage, garaging and a biomass boiler. Half way up the main, planning permission has been granted for a charming period style cottage which would be ideal for guests, family or staff accommodation. Equally it would be a very attractive proposition to the rental market. The cottage would have a living room, kitchen with breakfast/dining area, study, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and an adjoining double garage surrounded by a garden.
The planning consent was granted by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council with a reference of 20/01218/FUL.
The Estate lies in some of Hampshire's most beautiful countryside and has a wonderful combination of rolling farmland and mature mixed woodland.

The estate is well laid out to provide an excellent pheasant and partridge shoot with established woodland that is easily accessed by a series of conveniently laid out tracks and conservation headlands equally ideal for riding through out the estate. There is also a small cross country course.
The diverse terrain has recently supported a shoot of circa 15 days a year with average bags of around 250 birds. There is also excellent stalking on the estate with roe, fallow deer and muntjac with the three year average of over 150 head.
The woods and land are alive with an abundance of further wildlife including wonderful bird life, hare and other game, and wild flowers with carpets of bluebells particularly in the ancient woodland.

There is no doubt that The Roundtown Estate is a unique and extremely special place. The Estate is currently farmed in hand with contractors carrying out the bulk of the works.

The estate is situated off a quiet country lane just to the west of the hamlet of Tunworth and just 3 miles from the highly sought after village of Upton Grey. Upton Grey is a quintessential English village within 2.5 miles and renowned as being one of the most beautiful and accessible villages in North Hampshire. This popular village enjoys good facilities including a pub, village shop, village hall and church.
