About this property
Located at the end of a tree-lined gravel drive is this spectacular country house. Home Covert was designed and built to the current owners' designs just over 10 years ago on grounds of over 34 acres. Whilst located on the edge of the village of Roundway, Home covert sits in the centre of its plot, enjoying the most spectacular views across its land and surrounding countryside. A superb family house, with excellent accommodation, which is generous and the numerous reception rooms allow real flexibility as to how they could be used. Highlights include a magnificent central dining hall which is very much the heart of the home and perfectly suited to those who enjoy entertaining inside and out with large windows and doors forming a seamless link between the house and garden. The eight bedrooms, five bath/shower rooms make for comfortable family living. Much like the ground floor, the quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident throughout. Outside the gardens and grounds are simply stunning with a 6-acre Arboretum making up some of the woodlands with many trees having been planted by the ex-owner over a 50 year period making it a tranquil place to wander and gather your thoughts as you take in the stunning surroundings. The estate also benefits from a 3 bedroom detached lodge/bungalow that was also built in the last ten years, being ideal for either extra accommodation for either family/staff or an ideal air B&B if required.
Home Covert occupies a secluded setting on high ground, less than two miles from Devizes' bustling Market Place, amidst unspoilt Wiltshire countryside a stone's throw from the Wessex Ridgeway. 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). Those with an interest in country and leisure pursuits are well catered for in the area and there is a good choice of both private and state schools in the region.

Built in a traditional style that reflects 'Arts and Crafts' fashion, this is a handsome detached country house which was built in about 2012. The accommodation is generous with good proportions; providing space that suits modern living well.
The house is approached over a long drive which leads up to a gravelled court with oak-framed garaging on one side. Large lawns on the south side of the house and a paddock on one side of the drive open into the surrounding woodland - a delightful private amenity with specimen trees and shrubs, meandering paths, ponds and a woodland stream.
