Property SummaryRedlynch House is a majestic, Grade II listed, country mansion of ancient origins, situated within the Redlynch Park. 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.

The Sherborne Apartment is a ground floor apartment and enjoys an independent entrance on the beautiful gravelled turning circle. A handsome Palladian style stone porch makes an imposing statement and provides copious space for wellies or a bicycle. The apartment has a sense of elegance, with high ceilings, tall leaded windows and panelling. A long, wide central hallway is divided by glazed double doors and has an ancient stone mullion internal window high up. A graceful plaster archway leads into a formal dining space, having a lovely outlook over the courtyard to the front, and an elegant fireplace, currently with an electric fire. A small cloakroom is at the end, offering potential to make this a third bedroom with en-suite. The hallway leads along to the smallest bedroom and then to the drawing room. This is a charming room, with its tall windows framing stunning panoramic views of Redlynch Park and the surrounding countryside. Window seats offer the perfect place to sit and gaze. The stone fireplace currently has a gas fire but could easily be opened up for a real fire. A spacious eat-in kitchen is fitted with pale grey cabinetry and granite work surfaces, with glazed wall cabinets and a striking copper extractor hood. There is an adjoining breakfast room with a long roof lantern to let in lots of natural light, and fitted storage cupboards. The master bedroom is an exceptional size, lovely and light with windows looking out to the courtyard at the front, built-in wardrobes and a particularly spacious en-suite bathroom. The family bathroom is currently fitted to accommodate disability. At the end of the hallway is a storage area, boiler cupboard and walk-in airing cupboard.
The apartment has the benefit of a separate, private stone cellar. A door in the corner of the courtyard opens to stone steps leading down to a spacious cellar.
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.
