This is a detached Georgian country house ( 3655 Sq Ft ) of enormous charm and character, erected circa 1780, by iron merchants from Bristol and, as its name implies, from the bedroom windows the ancient Round Barrow can be viewed in the distance. The property has stone elevations with a mixture of mullion and sash windows and a slate roof and is entered via an impressive timber door. Many original features remain to provide this enchanting house with an indigenous historic ambiance including some stained glass and an adjoining barn with a stone floor and a pitched beamed ceiling as well as many other additions witnessing its long history as a picturesque family home. Located at the end of a private road and set in well over an acre of peaceful gardens surrounded by mature trees providing privacy and separate areas including a football pitch, woodlands and a delightful swimming pool set in a large lawn all, of which adjoin open countryside to complete this hidden rural idyll. Occupied by the same family since 1978, the property is now in need of modernisation and up-grading.


Completion is set for 8 weeks or earlier by mutual consent.

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £750 + VAT buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.


An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.


The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
