Having undergone an extensive programme of sympathetic restoration, a wealth of period characteristics and detailing from its late Georgian and early Victorian origins have been retained whilst further potential still exists for those looking to make a mark on their next home. Set in mature 1.5 acre grounds with lovely views over the surrounding countryside, the position that is enjoyed is both discrete and tucked away but also extremely convenient given the close proximity of the village centre and its varied amenities, all of which are only a short walk away.

Redlynch is a sought after and highly convenient village on the northern fringes on the New Forest National Park and the Hampshire/Wiltshire borders. Day to day facilities include a choice of public houses, village hall, store with post office, primary school and church. Neighbouring Downton provides more widespread amenities whilst the market towns of Fordingbridge and Romsey together with the cathedral city of Salisbury are all only a short drive away, the latter with its mainline railway station. The A36 is close by linking directly with the M27 and providing access to the commercial centres of Bournemouth and Southampton with their regional airports. The area is renowned for its wealth of recreational, cultural and educational amenities whilst also falling within the catchment for South Wiltshire Grammar School too.

With origins thought to date back in the main to 1866 Redlynch Lodge was constructed by local brick maker William Plaskett for his own personal use with the original cottage on the site dating from circa 1820 being retained. A striking Victorian façade to the front elevation incorporates attractive Flemish bond brickwork together with elaborate gables and bargeboards whilst a detached coach house to the side and rear of the original cottage has in more recent years been linked to the principal house and converted into additional accommodation which could be utilised in a variety of manners. Now providing in excess of 4000 square feet, the property has undergone further refurbishment in more recent years, all of which has been carried out most sympathetically ensuring the original period features have not only been retained but further enhanced by modern day labour saving devices. Of particular note are the high ceilings within the principal reception rooms, decorative cornicing and roses, fireplaces, shuttered and sash windows together with exposed timbers and an original Wiltshire Stepped dresser from the 1820s. An elegant reception hall boasts a wide staircase so typical of the Victorian era with a more recent porch addition enhancing the striking front façade and creating a practical entrance lobby. Extensive cellarage is accessed directly from the hall and to the rear fantastic live in style space can be found within the original cottage including an attractively fitted and well equipped kitchen complete with Miele appliances open to both family and dining areas centering around an original brick built fireplace and for ease of use a most authentic gas fired stove. Extensive glazing together with French doors open directly onto a large raised deck area from where lovely views over the garden and the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed. An inner hall also leads to a ground floor cloak room and pretty garden room with an adjacent computer space. Four double bedrooms can found on the first floor including a master bedroom complete with en suite bathroom in addition to a separate family shower room/wet area. The coach house links directly from the kitchen by way of a single storey walkway/lobby where a separate laundry room and walk in pantry can be found together with the annexe area including a spacious sitting room, dining room, study, two bedrooms and a bathroom and also benefitting from its own separate entrance.

The 1.5 acre grounds include mainly formal gardens which extend all around the property incorporating a variety of mixed planting and mature shrubs and trees together with decked and paved terraces, and also a woodland dell. Accessed from the lane the approach is via a five bar gate which opens onto extensive driveway parking and turning, and which leads to the property, coach house and a single detached garage. Set extremely well back from the road Redlynch Lodge is virtually hidden from view making this an ideal purchase for those seeking privacy and seclusion but also wanting to be part of a village community being able to walk to amenities and without being isolated in any way.
