Newington House is a Grade II listed residence believed to date back to the mid 18th Century, with later additions. The main house has an appealing red brick façade with a hipped tiled roof and comprises three floors of versatile accommodation with four principal reception rooms, a conservatory and nine bedrooms.
The accommodation retains many fine Georgian period features including sash windows, ornamental cornicing, dado rails and part panelled walls, with original fireplaces in a number of rooms.
The layout is flexible enough to provide for impressive formal entertaining as well as informal family living, with well proportioned and elegant rooms enjoying beautiful views over the gardens. Furthermore, it may be possible to configure the upper floor as a guest annexe or teenage accommodation or create a separate wing on the first floor as this area has its own kitchen and own access via a second staircase.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Newington House is set within exceptionally pretty gardens and accessed via electric gates. The gravel driveway leads to the main house with parking area and continues through to the outbuildings, vegetable garden and a further larger parking area.
The gardens have been meticulously designed and maintained to offer colour for eleven months of the year and to also provide a wildlife haven; they are predominantly organically managed and hedgehog, bee and bird-friendly, with nesting wildfowl and swans on the ponds and lake.
Above all, this is a picturesque setting and there are a number of themes and areas which combine to create a harmonious spectacle and splendid views.
The main house is approached via a raised York stone terrace flanked by parterre and wrought iron archways adorned with climbing roses which lead to the Rose Fountain Garden. This garden is enclosed and has a central computerised water feature with six programmable water jets surrounded by conifers, shrubs, alliums and rose bushes.
Colourful borders are in abundance, flowering climbers decorate and trees punctuate the lawn as it links the areas. There are three ponds including the House Pond with its resident Moorhens and Orfe fish as water lilies float on the surface, sheltered by the shade of an ancient Weeping Willow.
To the perimeter of the grounds is the lake, reached via the avenue of Limes which divide the two paddocks. The lake has a jetty and island and for leisure, a Flying Fox' zip wire crossing the water to the landing stage and a wide water slide, both built into the hill on the far side. Standing atop this small hill it is possible to admire the views across the countryside to St. Mary's Church, Winkfield.
There are four orchards with a wide variety of fruit trees from apple and pear to quince and plum, as meadow flowers carpet the ground.
The Vegetable Garden
This is a fully functioning enclosed vegetable garden producing an abundance of fruit and vegetables. Outside there are raised beds edged in old timber sleepers, a poly-tunnel provides the perfect environment to grow the salad vegetables and adjacent is a large fruit cage with two sets of specially built strawberry planters, set on three levels and mainly planted with Mara de Bois strawberries, and further beds.
The Greenhouse Orchid House
Comprising two scent-filled rooms with heating and misting systems, these areas provide the perfect environment for orchids and cacti and a grape vine.
The garden has a fully computerised irrigation system and power points discretely positioned around the grounds.
