Description

An 18th Century Grade ll listed Gothic Cottage Orne, idyllically set above the tranquil waters of the River Test. The House is set in extensive grounds, with fine trees and lawns sweeping down to the banks of the River.

Houghton Lodge has an importance quite disproportionate to its size, a building of architectural and historic importance. Built sometime before 1799 and probably intended as a fishing lodge, it is one of the earliest examples of a Cottage Orne or Rural Retreat. Whoever designed it appreciated regional buildings, especially the rounded thatched forms and plastered walls of Hampshire valley villages. Built on a hill overlooking the River Test, a more magical position would be hard to find. Both the House and the Garden are in the rare category of Grade II listed status, one of only 12 properties in the whole of Hampshire.
We try not to take ourselves too seriously, we think omega replica sale that fun and humor has a place in the luxury world, and we really dislike pretentiousness. More so, we feel it is rolex replica uk important to be super transparent with our audience C a concept that, in many ways, is the anathema of the luxury industry. On top of that, we really dislike the idea of telling our breitling replica sale audience what to do. Myself and the team aren't people that like being told what to do (let's say that at least one rolex replica thing aBlogtoWatch staffers share in common is a disdain for traditional authority), rolex replica sale and we don't want to tell our audience what to do. We respect you and our mission is to educate and inform.
