A "STUNNING" estate near Salisbury with links to Admiral Lord Nelson is on the market for in excess of £18million

The Newhouse Estate in Redlynch has been owned by the same family since 1633 with an historical association to Admiral Lord Nelson.

Believed to be one of only two ‘Trinity’ houses in Britain due to its unique Y-shaped design, the Grade I listed house dates back to circa 1604.

Salisbury Journal:

Mark McAndrew, the head of National Estates and Farms at Strutt & Parker csaid: "Newhouse is a truly stunning, historic, but incredibly manageable house. Newhouse is not vast and is in fact a beautiful family home in a quite extraordinary position. One thing that people are searching for is privacy and tranquillity, of which the Estate has in abundance.

"Surrounded by its own parkland and woodland and with no roads or public access, Newhouse occupies a secluded part of the New Forest National Park."

Salisbury Journal:

Newhouse is believed to have been designed by John Thorpe and built by William Stockman for Sir Edward Gorges.

In 1633, the Estate was acquired by Giles Eyre, whose descendants remain at Newhouse until today.

Giles, a reputed ‘Roundhead’ gave Newhouse to his second son, Ambrose. Ambrose sold Newhouse to his cousin, Sir Samuel Eyre, and in 1817 Harriet Eyre of Newhouse married George Matcham, the nephew of Admiral Lord Nelson. The marriage brought about the name change of the family to that of Eyre-Matcham.

The Estate is made up of a Grade I Jacobean house, 18th century Grade II listed Clock (Coach) House, stables, outbuildings, cottage, farmhouse and three further cottages.

It also has extensive lawned gardens, walled garden, parkland, lakes, farmland, and extensive broadleaf and coniferous woodland, which together total more than 900 acres.

The main Jacobean house was enlarged in the mid-18th century with the addition of two Georgian wings, both extensively restored in the late 20th century.

Salisbury Journal:

The interiors of the house have been restored and maintained by the family over the centuries, with today’s house comprising seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, drawing room, dining room, morning room, library, kitchen and cellars.

Salisbury Journal:

The Estate is available to purchase as a whole or in up to eight lots.

William Langmead, the head of Central Southern Estates and Farms at Strutt & Parker added: "The Newhouse Estate offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a traditional, unspoiled, mixed amenity estate.

"The parkland, arable farming, shooting and old farmsteads present pockets to progress while enjoying developing the existing historic Estate."
