    About this property

    • Redens is situated in the South Downs National Park, between the attractive villages of Lodsworth and Lickfold in a much sought after part of the county, referred to as the ‘Golden Triangle'. The location is not only desirable due to its private and peaceful setting but also due to its accessibility from London. The property is approached by a long driveway which divides to provide a separate access to the stabling and garaging away from the main house entrance. The courtyard driveway has large iron electronically operated gates which open to reveal a substantial house dating back to 15th century. In the middle of the courtyard driveway is a heated feature fish pond.

      The house has benefitted from substantial additions in the 1920s and 1930s and has undergone major refurbishments and further extensions in more recent years. The most work was the creation of a leisure wing with guest accommodation, an indoor swimming pool with built in swim-jet and gym complex. The spacious entrance hall is highlight of the house on account of its central position, impressive volume and galleried landing above. The oldest and original part of the house, which is semi-open plan to the hall is arranged as a cosy sitting room with a small inglenook fireplace. The study is positioned off the sitting room and is triple aspect looking out over the gardens. The dining room and impressive drawing room lead off the entrance hall. The drawing room has large windows and lovely views over the beautifully landscaped gardens. The drawing room has characterful beams but offers good ceiling height and double doors which open onto a patio area which is a real sun trap. The kitchen and breakfast room are located beyond the utility room and cloakroom. The kitchen is designed by Smallbone and there is a good size larder, lots of cupboard space and a gas-fired AGA. The temperature controlled wine cellar is located downstairs along with further storage. This area also houses the extremely efficient ground-source heating units. Past the kitchen are the boot rooms and further storage. The leisure complex and guest accommodation with shower room connect to the main house through a rear hall, which also has doors to the front parking area and out to the terrace. On the first floor there is a bright galleried landing and characterful bedrooms. The master bedroom has beautiful views over the far-reaching fields and has an en suite bath/shower room. There are five further bedrooms on this level and 3 bathrooms. The house extends to just over 7,000 sq ft in total.

      Gardens and Grounds
      The land is fenced throughout and is surrounded by woodland. The pasture is currently divided into larger and smaller paddocks which are ideal for the rearing of either horses or alpacas. A bridleway lies adjacent to the property and offers easy access to excellent riding and walking routes across the surrounding countryside . The gardens have been meticulously cared for and beautifully landscaped. There is a large fish pond with pergola to provide a mature and attractive setting with paddocks and woodland surrounding it. The substantial equestrian facilities were constructed by the current owners to provide a spacious stable yard with staff accommodation, all based around a walled courtyard. The manège and lunging ring are nearby for ease of daily use. There is also direct access from the stabling to the fenced paddocks. The farm buildings in a separate nearby block are of recent construction and their flexible design offers multi-purpose use.
