Country houses for sale

A palatial 18th century mansion on the Solent, twice lavishly remodelled and sitting at the heart of a 405-acre riverside estate

Newton Park comes to the market.

Newton, and its more recent variation Newtown, provide England with its most common place name, but, clearly, there is nothing commonplace about a recent offering from Knight Frank’s country department Grade II*-listed, Newtown Park.

A striking Palladian mansion at the heart of a 405-acre estate overlooking the Solent, it has come to the market with a guide price of ‘excess £10m’ .

The house, built in 1790, restored and remodelled in 1960 and again – lavishly – in 2000, stands in solitary splendour at the end of a long, tree-lined drive. It boasts some 16,000sq ft of internal living space on three floors, with beautifully proportioned ground-floor reception rooms laid out for entertaining on a grand scale.

The first floor houses eight bedrooms, seven of which have bathrooms en suite. There are three more bedrooms on the second floor, where a staircase leads to a striking cupola/observatory with 360-degree views over the Solent and the surrounding estate.

Newtown Park Estate is on the market with Knight Frank for offers over £10 million. For more information and images, click here.
