Vendor's thoughts: "Round Hill is a truly wonderful family home. My father built the house over thirty years ago and I grew up there as well as now living there with my own family. It is a very special house which holds many happy family memories. It sits in the heart of the beautiful Churn valley giving it stunning panoramic views. In the early evening the valley is bathed in a beautiful twilight and you often see deer on the far banks above Rendcomb.
Internally, the house flows really well with the layout being ideal for family life and entertaining. There is so much space, not only with the outbuildings which lend themselves to a variety of different uses, but also within the house itself with all the receptions rooms being large and bright. The garden room is particularly lovely on a summer’s evening and the sitting room is perfect for winter evenings with log fires. It is a very special and unique home and we have been very happy there."
