Rollington House is believed to have been built in the 1880s and is constructed of old red bricks under a slate roof. Secluded from the road, the house offers spacious accommodation full of features that you would expect of a property of its age. This includes very high ceilings on the ground

and first floors, open fire places and bay windows to the front. The house has been in the current

family since 1952.

The principal rooms are to the front of the house overlooking the pretty front gardens. The drawing room is dual aspect with French doors opening out to a terrace. The sitting room has a jet master fire and fitted bookshelves. The good sized dining room has wood floors. To the back of the house is a large kitchen/breakfast room with a good range of cupboards, Aga and doors leading to the utility and garden.

To the first floor is a large master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom. The other bedrooms are all of a good size all with fitted wardrobes and most with fireplaces. There are two

additional family bathrooms.

Rollington House is located in the popular village of Redlynch where there is a store, pub, church and village hall. The larger village of Downton is 2 miles away and provides most everyday requirements. A more extensive range of facilities is available in nearby Salisbury.

The property benefits from excellent communication links with the cathedral city of Salisbury (direct line to London Waterloo 90 minutes) within easy reach. Bournemouth is via the A338 and to Southampton and its very good

regional airport via the A36.

There are many recreational opportunities in the area and Rollington House is situated just inside the boundaries of the New Forest National Park where there are numerous footpaths and bridleways. There are golf courses at Hamptworth and Bramshaw. The south coast is well within an hour's drive for sailing and water sports.

The area is renowned for its excellent schools which include, Chafyn Grove, Godolphin and two

Grammar schools in Salisbury. There is also the King Edward VI in Southampton; Hampshire Collegiate and Embley Park near Romsey and

Sandle Manor in Fordingbridge.

A gravel drive leads to the front of the house with a large turning circle and enclosed by a hedge

offering complete privacy. The main gardens are to the side and rear of the house and are mainly

laid to lawn with well stocked flower beds. At the top of the garden is an impressive vegetable

garden and an orchard which include a variety of apple trees, plums, pears and greengages. Behind the thatched barn is a heated swimming pool and summer house.

Located to the west of the house is a very pretty thatched barn which was originally an ox byre. This has recently been re-thatched and plastered. Opposite the yard is a red brick building with large barn, double garage, stables and above is a one bedroom flat. Surrounding the house and gardens

are three paddocks all with water.
