This impressive Grade II Listed house was built in the 16th Century on the site of the farmhouse which once served Netley Abbey, using materials from the 13th Century Abbey following its dissolution by Henry VIII. It is believed that the front door, which bears religious inscriptions, much of the stonework and the mullion window in the drawing room (an early 19th Century addition) all originate from the Abbey. Netley Lodge, following extensive refurbishment and redecoration, is a stunning family home, full of character and retaining many original features including flagstones, oak boards, chamfered beams, horizontal sliding window shutters and impressive fireplaces. This flexible, light and airy accommodation is arranged over two floors with an attic and cellar, making this an ideal family home of just under 5,500 sq ft.
The generous and well-presented ground floor accommodation flows from the welcoming reception hall, comprising a spacious double aspect drawing room with wooden parquet flooring, stone fireplace and a bay window, flowing into a stunning glazed Amdega conservatory with wooden floor and French doors to the gardens. The ground floor also boasts a large dining room with feature brick fireplace, quarry tiled floor and original beams, overlooking the front, an adjoining good-sized den/study and a library with a useful cloakroom and French doors to the gardens.
The well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room lies at the heart of the home and incorporates a range of fitted units and modern appliances together with an Aga, double Belfast sink, wooden worktops, wooden flooring and a lovely stone fireplace in the breakfast area together with a separate pantry with traditional slate shelving, an adjoining laundry room and a separate Victorian marmalade kitchen. There is a hatch in the rear hallway, leading down to the cellar.
On the first floor the large double aspect master bedroom, with lovely views of the woodland towards the sea, has a fireplace and an en suite shower room. There are a further five well-proportioned bedrooms, including the spacious guest bedroom with en suite shower room and one other with an en suite and all with views over the garden and woodland. There is also a family bathroom on this level as well as a staircase up to the attic room.

Netley Lodge is hidden away within a secluded and private position in grounds of about 6.48 acres of parkland and woodland backing onto The Royal Victoria Country Park. The house is approached down a private lane leading to a sweeping gravelled driveway bordered by lawn and running up to an extensive parking area immediately in front of the house.
