Property SummaryRedlynch House is a majestic, Grade II listed, country mansion of ancient origins, situated within the Redlynch Estate. Set in 25 acres of beautiful grounds, in breath-taking countryside, this is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a slice of grandeur within a unique and prestigious setting.
To reside in Redlynch Park is to purchase a country lifestyle surrounded by history and to enjoy all that a property of such exceptional calibre has to offer. The long sweeping driveway is flanked by parkland and woodlands and sets the scene for the absolute splendour of Redlynch itself.
Stalbridge apartment is set on both the first and second floors of Redlynch House. Redlynch House is entered through an imposing front door, opening into an oak panelled hall, which is shared by all apartments. A sweeping staircase rises to the first floor where Stalbridge has its entrance. The apartment has an immediate sense of space and light, with large, high ceilinged rooms and beautiful leaded windows. The spacious, airy hall leads firstly to an inner lobby with a downstairs shower room and through to the kitchen. This is sunny and light, fitted with soft green cabinetry and black granite worktops and ample space for a dining table and chairs. Two windows look out over beautiful lawns to the open countryside beyond. The elegant, refined drawing room is an exceptional space to relax or to entertain guests. A beautifully proportioned room, dual aspect with the easterly windows bringing in the morning sunshine, and wonderful views, it has oak panelling to waist height with built in cupboards and bookshelves, and a pretty recessed plaster niche with glass shelving. The stone fireplace currently has an electric stove but could easily be opened up for a real fire. At the end of the hall is a cosy study, fitted with a large L-shaped desk in cherry wood. This room would, alternatively, be the third bedroom.
Stairs from the hall take you up to the second floor, where a light and airy landing leads to two bedrooms, a shower room and a walk-in airing/storage cupboard. The spacious master bedroom has a wood burning stove for cosy winter nights and an oak four poster bed which could be left in place by separate negotiation. Built-in wardrobes maximise the space. Up in the eaves, with sloping ceilings and views from high up, it has the air of a private haven. A second spacious double bedroom also has lovely views, a fireplace, built in cupboards and a vanity unit.
Outside the apartment, along the corridor, is a storage cupboard for private use.
Many of the residents live here full time, but it would also work as a wonderful bolt hole for easy part- time living.
There is a central laundry for use by residents, if they choose.
Communal gardens and parkland wrap around the property and are beautifully sectioned with expert planting of box hedging, yew hedges and borders planted with an abundance of flora, shrubs and mature trees. A magical walled garden to the rear of the property has been laid to vegetable plots and cold-frames for each apartment - perfect for either a green-fingered kitchen garden enthusiast or a complete novice to enjoy. There are enchanting woodland walks around the estate.
A communal outdoor heated pool is perfectly positioned to take maximum advantage of the views. There is an C18th Grade II listed summer house, ideal for meetings/ parties, a croquet lawn and newly re-surfaced tennis court.
The property has the bonus of a private garage.
The property is subject to management fees which allow the whole estate to be kept in immaculate condition.
