A Stunning and imposing Grade II Listed manorial residence, this 16th Century family home has been built on the site of the farmhouse which once served Netley Abbey, using materials from the 13th Century Abbey following its dissolution by Henry VIII. Netley Lodge is hidden away within a secluded and private position in grounds spanning over 6 acres of parkland and woodland, backing onto The Royal Victoria Country Park. A large sweeping driveway leads to the impressive and gorgeous Westerly view of Netley Lodge. Two entrances to the property provide ample parking, with a modern triple detached Garage adding further convenience. The generous and well-presented ground floor accommodation flows from the welcoming reception hall. To the right a spacious double aspect Georgian drawing room, with parquet flooring, stone fireplace and a beautiful bay window, flows into a stunning glazed Amdega conservatory/ dining room with wooden floor, underfloor heating and French doors to the gardens. Serving as a spectacular family addition to the home, with the views out towards just some of the 6.5 acres. This really encapsulates the tranquillity and feel for this location despite the convenient proximity to the convinces of Netley and Southampton on your doorstep. Additionally on the ground floor you will find a family room with feature brick fireplace, quarry tiled floor and original beams, with front facing views, and an adjoining good-sized study. A library is equipped with a useful cloakroom and French doors to the gardens. The well-proportioned kitchen lies at the heart of the home with riverbed Granite worktop and hand-built Kitchen, with oak from a tree in the woodlands. This incorporates a range of fitted units and modern appliances together with an Aga, giving a balance of tradition with modern convenience that doesn’t overwhelm. The double Belfast sink, wooden worktops, wooden flooring, together with a separate pantry featuring traditional slate shelving, compliment the area. From the kitchen a cosy parlour room provides space for dining or relaxing by the open fire, along with a tucked away staircase up to the first floor. With a history and intrigue you also find the adjoining unique Victorian marmalade kitchen and laundry room. There is a hatch in the rear hallway, leading down to the wine cellar. Perched upon the first floor you will find the large double aspect principal suite, with lovely views of the woodland within the grounds. A fireplace and ensuite shower room add a touch of luxury to this room. There are a further five well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, including a spacious guest bedroom with vintage train cabin style doorway to an ensuite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are served a family bathroom with clawfoot bath and separate shower in addition to a further shower room. A staircase leads up to the former servants’ quarters; currently used as bedroom 7. The secluded gardens, a particular feature of this property, surround the house in an even manner, and are laid mainly to level lawn with a border of mature shrubs and trees. Noteworthy is also the mature tree line that runs across the Northern Boundary of the home, giving a sense of privacy and seclusion. A large paved terrace is immediately outside the conservatory, overlooking the grounds, with steps down to a side path, providing access to the outdoor swimming pool with pool house. Running around this Eastern side of the home are areas of woodland with ponds and the ruins of a former game larder or folly. Separate gardens are just outside the kitchen and study, both enclosed as courtyard gardens with an external boiler room and three outhouses, one with a useful shower room.
