Roundway, Devizes

Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
A most impressive 5 double bedroom extended family home offering a huge amount of space both inside and out (2745sqft & 0.45 acre) as well as outstanding views and some incredible walks right on the doorstep.

'Southdown' is located on the edge of Devizes in the sought after hamlet of Roundway and nestled under the historic Roundway Hill (where the Battle of Roundway saw The Cavaliers fight The Roundheads). This location has it all- a rural retreat whilst still easily accessible back in to town via the wonderful Quakers Walk.

The property was run for many years a s a successful B&B and you can see why, not just for the enviable setting but also because it benefits from 5 double bedrooms (all with their own characteristics), complemented by 3 modern en suite shower rooms and a contemporary family bathroom. There is a delightful wisteria clad balcony spanning the front of the house which takes in views of the front garden as well as the fields to the side. On the ground floor there is an incredible amount of reception space, with a triple aspect sitting room (with inset log burning stove) opening through to a 15ft conservatory. There is also a study, a separate dining room and a breakfast room open plan into the stylish kitchen with a range of units accompanied by quality integrated appliances, granite worktops and natural stone flooring. In addition there is a downstairs cloakroom and a door from the breakfast room into the spacious double garage with light, power, a utility area and an electric door.

Outside, a large driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles. There is a front enclosed lawn with established shrubs and mature trees that run through to an even larger rear garden packed with seasonal plants and colourful fruit trees and shrubs. The garden enjoys an excellent amount of privacy and is a notable feature of this house with some summer photos included to demonstrate how colourful it becomes in the summer months.


Southdown occupies an enviable plot adjacent to open countrywide with incredible views all round, less than two miles from Devizes bustling Market Place, amidst unspoilt Wiltshire countryside a stone s throw from the Wessex Ridgeway, the Millennium White Horse and the North Wessex Downs National Landscape. The town can also be reached on foot via the historic Quaker s Walk. Devizes caters for most day to day requirements whilst the larger centres of Salisbury, Swindon, Bath and Newbury are all within easy motoring distance. The M4 to the north and the A303 to the south provide fast road access to London and the West Country; main line rail services are available from Chippenham and Pewsey (Paddington just over an hour).
