Owners Comments

“We love the scale and style of Roman House, but also appreciate the privacy of its setting. The amazing size of the house has really given our family a chance to grow as individuals; there is just so much useable space! The main rooms of the house and its terrace are bathed in sunshine at any time of year; we regularly invite small groups of friends, but entertained in style more than 80 guests one summer!"

“We are constantly amazed by how rural and secluded the house and garden feel (the birdsong is incredible!) and yet we are so close to every connection possible!”

Introduction

Roman House is one of Chilworth's landmark residences having been individually commissioned in 2002 in a contemporary décor with stunning views over its 1/2 acre gardens to the golf course beyond.

The accommodation enjoys many impressive features of beautiful oak finishes and well proportioned rooms including a lower ground floor studio which can easily be utilised as a self contained annex. The interior décor has been delightfully maintained including luxurious sanitary ware to the many bathrooms and the principal living areas feature access to the wonderful south facing sun deck which is an ideal summer entertainment venue enjoying lovely views to the rear.

Discreetly positioned at the end of one of Chilworth's most popular addresses, out of earshot of the motorway network, offering a great deal of privacy and seclusion, Roman House is the perfect family home, with ample space for the largest of families yet ideally located within easy reach of Southampton city centre and its wide array of facilities.
