Roundway Farm House is a most attractive period farm house which is listed Grade II and believed to date from the 16th and 18th centuries, with the current owners having carried out an extensive refurbishment and extension in 2009. To the ground floor there is a welcoming reception hall which leads through to a stunning stair hall with stone staircase and an impressive fireplace with stone surround and fitted wood burner.

There are some fabulous reception rooms, ideal for entertaining, with the drawing room having a large fireplace with fitted wood burning stove. From the drawing room there is access to the sitting room, carved stone open fire, and to the study which has doors out to the garden. The dining room is a good size with a beautiful carved stone fireplace to one end fitted with a wood burner. Running virtually the length of the rear of the house is a fabulous, partly oak beam, vaulted ceiling kitchen/breakfast room, with stone flooring, an excellent range of custom-made hand painted units and a central island also providing a breakfast bar. Within the kitchen is a four oven AGA with electric hob, as well as an integrated dishwasher. There is also a useful shelved larder. Finally on the ground floor is a utility room and beyond, a boot room.

To the first floor is a good size landing providing access to all the bedrooms. Of particular note is the vaulted bedroom with exposed timbers and scope to create a bathroom or shower room. There are four further bedrooms, all of a good size, and the majority having fitted wardrobes. These are served by the family bathroom and shower room.

To the second floor is a landing/study area, beyond which is a hobbies room which would be suitable as a further bedroom. In addition, there is good attic storage space which could provide further accommodation if required.
Throughout the house are numerous period features and, given the age of the property, there are good ceiling heights and the most wonderful atmosphere. It has been a much-loved family home.

The cottages lie adjacent to the drive. Granary Cottage comprises a reception/dining hall, cloakroom, sitting room, kitchen with AGA and to the first floor two bedrooms each with adjoining bathrooms. To the rear there is a small enclosed garden. Studio Cottage, currently used as a Photographic/Art gallery, comprises a reception lobby, sitting room which was a former stable, and adjacent is a potential study. There is an open plan kitchen/dining room with built in oven and hob. To the first floor are two bedrooms, both of which have an adjoining bathroom or shower room.

Within the extensive grounds is a former farmyard, within which are old piggeries, together with a magnificent timber framed barn of approximately 85' x 19' providing machinery storage, as well as lean-to's. Adjoining the barn is a range of four loose boxes and tack room.

The house is approached over a long tarmacadam drive which terminates in a parking area beside the house. There are areas of lawn, a central lily pond and the front of the house is adorned by a number of climbing shrubs and framed by neatly clipped yew hedging.

The principal garden lies to the rear which is south facing with a large terrace and steps up to broad areas of lawn. To one side is an attractive gravel area with central pond and steps leading up to a Hornbeam arch avenue. To one side of the garden is an open fronted summer house beyond which is a hard tennis court. Behind the garaging is a vegetable garden and fruit cage.

Adjacent to the drive is an area of pastureland enclosed by estate railings with a wrought iron gate providing access to the timber framed barn. The remaining areas of pastureland lie adjacent to the barn and are divided into
two paddocks by mature hedging and sheltered by light areas of woodland and dew pond. The pasture has direct access to the single track lane that leads to the Downs.

Roundway Farm House is situated in the small hamlet of Roundway which lies approximately two miles to the north of the historic town of Devizes. The property is set amongst the Wiltshire Chalk Downs, near to the site of the
Battle of Roundway, which took place in July 1643 and is considered one of the key battles in the first English civil war with a Royalist victory.

The Parliamentarians, under Sir William Waller, were besieging the Wiltshire town of Devizes when they learnt the Royalist cavalry horses of some 1500 strong had been dispatched from Oxford to reinforce the town. It is
reputed that General Sir William Waller, Commander of Parliamentary forces was supposed to have had breakfast at Roundway Farm House before his defeat by the Royalist on Roundway Down which lies adjacent to the
property.

From the farm house there are commanding views up to the Downs and towards The White Horse which was carved into the hillside to celebrate the millennium.
