Set in a quiet, rural location in an elevated position and with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside, The Round House is a wonderful and imaginatively designed home. The entrance hall leads to the central, open plan living area incorporating a sitting room, dining room, art studio and music room (divided by a fireplace). The central area is an atrium with a large octagonal roof light and showcasing some of the original ironwork alongside an array of tropical plants. Two sets of sliding doors show wonderful panoramic views of the rolling Hampshire countryside and open onto a substantial south-facing brick and stone terrace. Alongside the main reception area, is a study and a snug as well as the fully fitted kitchen with Aga and a utility room.

The principal bedroom has glazed doors to the terrace, an en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. There is a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room, kitchenette and separate entrance to the front making it an ideal annexe. There are three further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and a family bathroom. There is an integral garage and store to the south east side of the house with a living roof.

Approached via a gate from a country lane, there is parking to the front for several cars. The landscaped gardens lie mainly to the rear of the property with a lawn and topiary bushes ensuring an uninterrupted view of the south Hampshire countryside. Further garden areas include a productive kitchen garden, a summer house, flower garden and a variety of mature trees and shrubs. To the side of the house is an outdoor swimming pool (heated via solar power)
with stone surround. In 2010 the current owners purchased further land which is partly made up of an orchard (about 1.4 acres) with the
remainder let on a farming licence for sheep grazing and hay (about 10 acres).

The Round House sits to the north of the thriving village of Bishops Waltham which has excellent local facilities including a grocers, fishmongers, butchers and post office along with many other shops and restaurants.
