Seven-bed Jacobean New Forest mansion with 900-acre estate bigger than New York’s Central Park goes on the market for the first time in 400 years – and could be YOURS for just £18million

  • Historic Grade I Jacobean mansion boasts seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, a library and wine cellars
  • The Newhouse Estate, situated just outside the village of Redlynch, Salisbury, consists of 900 acres of land
  • Also part of the Estate is a separate five-bedroom home, Grade II Listed stables and three further cottages

A magnificent seven-bedroom country home with a sprawling New Forest estate is on the market for £18million after going up for sale for the first time in 400 years. 

The Newhouse Estate, just outside the village of Redlynch in Salisbury, Wiltshire, boasts 900 acres of farmland, parkland, woods and extensive lawned gardens, which when combined is larger than New York’s Central Park, or more than two times the size of London’s Hyde Park.    

Inside the historic Grade I Listed Jacobean mansion seems small by comparison, with only seven spacious bedrooms, five reception rooms – which include a breakfast room library – and three bathrooms. 

However buyers will by no means struggle to find room if they need it, as the enormous estate also comes with a separate five-bedroom home, Grade II Listed stables and three further cottages – as well as numerous outbuildings and several wine cellars.

The property’s 900 acres offers an incredibly private location with stunning vistas as far as the eye can see over the land, which borders the northeastern corner of the New Forest National Park. 

It may have all the space you could ever want, but for those wishing to keep in touch with the real world local amenities can be found in nearby Redlynch, including a post office and store, country pubs and two well renowned golf courses.   

Newhouse has been owned by the same family since 1633, and is said to have links to Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, New York Post reports.

The enormous estate also comes with a separate five-bedroom home situated inside a courtyard with Grade II Listed stables (pictured)

The property also comes with three further cottages – one is pictured here. The New Forest is on the doorstep

The Estate holds large herds of fallow and roe deer. The property is surrounded by its own parkland and woodland and with no roads or public access

‘It 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. 

He added: ‘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’.

‘The area has become increasingly popular and is so accessible. Nearby road and mainline rail networks mean that you have the South Coast close by, trains to London to hand, and all with the New Forest on your doorstep.’
