Property Summary

No. 5 was formerly two flats and is the largest of the apartments, set on both the first and second floors. The property 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 No. 5 has its entrance. The apartment has an immediate sense of space and light, with large, high ceilinged rooms and tall windows framing the spectacular panoramic scenery.  A very large, light filled dining/kitchen is unfitted with free-standing furniture, an AGA and a separate utility and pantry. From here, a door leads through to a cosy study, taking in the glorious views, and then through to a back hall and stairs. The splendid drawing room is spectacular with its high ceiling, period features and open fire, and enjoying both southerly and easterly views. This is a truly wonderful space to relax, or to entertain guests.  Stairs from the back hall lead up to an airy landing and four, pretty, double bedrooms, all with wonderful views and built-in storage, and a dressing room, family bathroom and separate shower room. 

The original two flats could easily be separated again. 

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.

Redlynch 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.


The property has its own two areas of garden within the fabulous gardens, plus there is communal parkland which wraps around the property and is 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 - 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 summer house, ideal for meetings/ parties, a croquet lawn and newly re-surfaced tennis court.

The property has the bonus of three private garages.

The property is subject to management fees which allow the whole estate to be kept in immaculate condition.
