In all approximately 9.6 acres.

Templeman's Old Farmhouse is Grade II listed as being of historical and architectural interest which has evolved in three distinct stages. The original part was constructed in the late 17th Century with later additions being added to enlarge and gentrify the accommodation in the early 17th Century and again around 1870. At this time Templeman's Old Farmhouse was held on a lease from the Nelson Estate by the Taunton Family. The late Victorian gentrified southern front is beautifully proportioned with gracious accommodation and rooms. The accommodation throughout Templeman's Old Farmhouse is perfect for the growing family as it can be used in a number of configurations.
There is a magnificent hall with a canter-levered staircase and high ceiling, with the drawing room and dining room, both of which face south, either side.
The accommodation has numerous original features and these include carved wood and marble fireplaces, an inglenook fireplace, cornicing, picture rails, tall sash windows, planked doors, chamfered beams and moulded ceiling cornices.
On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with a dressing room and its own bathroom, and there are five further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor there is a 7th bedroom and useful attic on the top floor.
The property has been occupied by the same family for nearly 40 years and prior to this it was in the ownership of the Nelson Estate

Templeman's Old Farmhouse is quietly situated on the edge of the popular village of Redlynch where there are facilities for day to day needs. The village of Downton, where there are further facilities, is approximately one mile away and the New Forest National Park is also just over a mile away. The south coast is within easy reach as is the Cathedral City of Salisbury where there are extensive educational, recreational, leisure and shopping facilities which combine with a twice weekly market, in addition to a mainline railway station with regular services to London Waterloo. Salisbury is also well known for its excellent selection of schools at all levels which include boys and girls grammar schools and a number of private schools which include the Goldolphin, Chafyn Grove and the recently merged Cathedral School and Leaden Hall. Templemans Old Farmhouse is in the grammar schools catchment area. The area is also very convenient for those who commute or travel with easy access onto the A36/M27 and the A303/M3 bringing the business centres along the south coast and M3 and M25 corridors within easy reach. Heathrow and Southampton airports are also easily accessible.
There is excellent walking, riding and cycling country in the surrounding countryside and many other good opportunities for leisure and recreation with football, rugby and tennis clubs nearby as well as racing at Salisbury and motor racing at Thruxton. The area is also renowned for its good shooting and fishing.

The house is approached along a circular gravelled drive which lies to the front of the house. The garden is divided into a number of separate areas (rooms) by established laurel and hornbeam hedges which also provide added privacy. There are numerous specimen shrubs and some attractive trees which include copper beech, yew, oak, cherry, catalpa and acacia.
Lawns stretch away from the house and include an attractive lawn to the south with a kitchen garden beyond with vegetable patches and fruit cage. To the south west there is a walled garden with attractive herbaceous borders where there is also a hard tennis court and potting shed. Beside the walled garden is a brick built double garage with electric roller doors and adjoining garden room.
The land is situated mainly to the south and east of the house and adds great amenity value to the property. There is currently a small paddock which adjoins the garden with a field shelter and two larger pasture fields beyond with water troughs. A belt of established deciduous woodland forms part of the northern boundary. In the Spring it is a splash of colour with snowdrops and bluebells.
