Roundhill Estate


If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it

But if ₤6,000,000 seems about right, then here is the property for you - and there's a nice local connection too.

This is Roundhill, near Wincanton in England and it is being offered by Savills of Mayfair.

It was built by Nathaniel Webb, sugar-merchant and slave owner, whose portrait we were given by a descendant in 2007.

But Mr Webb met a sticky end right here, as described in the Universal Spectator and Weekly Journal of Saturday, February 7, 1741

So always use a proper ladder and contact Sarah Nicholson at Savills to arrange a time to view the property.
