Roundabout is a very impressive Edwardian, detached family home, which is thought to date back to 1908 and was originally built by a family of architects, Bothams, with original detailing by Woodrows. The property is on the market for the first time in nearly 50 years with only four previous owners and features a wealth of beautifully presented accommodation, with spacious reception rooms, attractive décor and five bedrooms. There is also a separate two bedroom annexe, providing additional detached living accommodation. The property has been recently refurbished, overseen by renowned local builders Mouldings, including a new roof, chimneys and redecoration.

The main ground floor reception room is the impressive 26ft drawing room, with its exposed timber beams and fireplace, which is fitted with a large Clearview wood burning stove and a Bath stone surround. This grand reception room adjoins the generous dining room to the rear, with its fireplace featuring an ornate carved wooden surround, thought to have been reclaimed from a local derelict ecclesiastical building. Both rooms enjoy south-facing views over the valley. There is also a spacious family/sitting room, with French doors opening onto the walled terrace with access to the croquet lawn. The large kitchen and breakfast room is well equipped with plenty of storage, stone worktops, integrated appliances, a separate utility/cloakroom and a brand new electric AGA. Upstairs the principal bedroom has an en-suite bathroom featuring a stylish Italian freestanding stone bath. There are four further double bedrooms all with large fitted wardrobes, and three have their own washbasins. The bedrooms enjoy expansive views over the garden, woodland and the picturesque valley beyond.

The well-appointed annexe provides further flexible living space and could be used for family members or as a holiday let, subject to the necessary consents. The contemporary accommodation includes two comfortable rooms, a shower room with WC, and a large open-plan reception room and kitchen, with French doors leading out to the gravel drive and vegetable garden.

Roundabout is located in the sought-after hamlet of Little Durnford, in the heart of the picturesque Woodford Valley. The grounds are bordered to the south by the Devenish Nature Reserve and there are excellent walks and cycle rides throughout the Woodford Valley, and several byways for horse riding. There is an active community in the nearby Woodfords with facilities including a garage with shop, a church, primary school, two popular pubs and numerous societies. The nearby cathedral city of Salisbury provides an excellent range of independent and High Street stores with a range of shopping centres including The Old George Mall, The Maltings, Winchester Street and the Crosskeys precinct together with a cinema, theatre and art galleries. There is also a large Waitrose supermarket less than 4 miles away.

The local area is renowned for its schools, both private and state. There is an outstanding-rated primary school in Middle Woodford, while Salisbury offers Grammar Schools for both girls and boys. There are numerous prep schools in the area including Chaffyn Grove, Leehurst Swan and the Salisbury Cathedral School. At senior level there is Godolphin.

The house is set in mature gardens and grounds, with stunning views across the surrounding rolling hills. At the front of the property, hardwood electric gates open onto the large gravel and paved driveway, which provides plenty of parking space and access to the expansive, detached 8-berth heated garage towards the rear. This could be suitable for an array of different uses, subject to the necessary consents. The garden includes a southwest-facing walled terrace area with far-reaching views across the valley. There are extensive, well managed lawns, with established shrub and hedgerow borders and rockeries, as well as an enclosed vegetable garden featuring raised beds and mature plants. At the far end of the croquet lawn is the swimming pool.
