Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Rounceval House sits in a prominent position at the top of the main high street in the charming town of Chipping Sodbury. The house enjoys good access to the many shops, restaurants and bars of the high street whilst enjoying generous sized secluded gardens and private parking.
This beautiful Grade II Listed, double fronted property, which was believed to have been built in the reign of King Charles II has a wealth of period features both inside and out. Thought to have been originally constructed in the mid 17th century, this important house was purported to have been the residence of the Constable of the area and it has links with Dr Jenner who discovered vaccination. The solid stone property with its double front bays and columned portico, is a lovely example of Restoration architecture.
The house itself has exceptional accommodation of some 5,444 feet arranged over four floors with a mezzanine. There is a flexible layout currently accommodating multi-generational living with the benefit of the independently accessed annexe as well as the main house.
The house was previously run as a boutique hotel and has been substantially improved over recent years. All bedrooms have en suite facilities and the gorgeous reception rooms are enhanced with period detailing. The reception rooms are well proportioned with many lovely period features including ceiling roses, cornices, elegant fireplaces, doors and flooring as well as beautiful twin bays. There is also a unique lower floor spa area with a recently installed roman style spa seating ten people.
On the first floor of the main house you will find three rooms, two of which are currently used as reception spaces, one with kitchen facilities for guests. These rooms could easily be reconverted into bedrooms as the en suites still exist. The mezzanine and top floor of the house contain five generous double bedrooms, many with beautiful exposed beams and trusses showing the incredible history of the building. Unusually for a property of this age, the bedrooms are complemented by en suite bathrooms.
Forming the eastern part of the house, the integral annexe which has its own front door can also be accessed internally. It could also have its own drive-in double entrance gates if preferred. The annexe is currently used as three bedrooms, all en suite, but the ground floor laundry room which has garden access, could be rearranged as a kitchen to form a completely independent, very generous, two bedroom apartment.

Situation

The house is situated at the top of Chipping Sodbury High Street which dates back to the 15th Century. There are a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants including a Waitrose. There are good schools within the Chipping Sodbury area as well as a range of sporting facilities in and around the town itself. There is also a new 6 screen local cinema. Many families make use of the excellent communication links provided by the M4 and rail links at Bristol Parkway with high-speed trains to London Paddington. There are three golf clubs nearby.

Outside

The property has twin vehicular access to either side via substantial wooden gates providing an in/out style driveway. The rear garden is partially walled and mainly laid to lawn interspersed with a small patio, pathways and raised herbaceous beds. There is a period style greenhouse and small area for growing vegetables.
The rear of the property is a bank of mature trees providing year round interest and foliage from all of the rear facing rooms. This leads to a small woodland which is an ideal play area for children and in turn leads to a stone barn currently used for storing garden equipment.
