Lot 1 Wilverley Park
A private entranceway with electric gates beside Wilverley Coach House Lodge leads in from Pinkney Lane. The driveway sweeps up to the Victorian Coach House that sitselevated, looking out across 86 acres of outstanding parkland. Nestled into the parkland is a lake, two cottages and some farm buildings that form Lot 1.
Wilverley Coach House
The Coach House was converted into a modern residence in 1968 and has a productive walled kitchen garden to the east, and a large area of parkland to the south. The original coach house was built around 1865 to serve Wilverley House which was demolished during the 1960’s. The house is constructed of buff brick and dressed local stone, under a pitched welsh slate roof with a single offset chimney stack.
An excellent conversion has produced a series of well proportioned reception rooms downstairs, and four large double bedrooms above accessed from a galleried landing. A wealth of history and retained original features remain, including period fireplaces and some of the stalls once occupied by the draught horses of Wilverley House but now used as a fun children’s dormitory. The house will benefit from some updating, particularly in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Beyond the house to the south lies a large, open lawn overlooking the park, with a curving ha-ha wall at its boundary.
The formal gardens are on the east side of the house and were designed by François Goffinet. These beautiful and mature gardens have been carefully developed beyond their original design over the intervening years and work in harmony with the house, creating a very peaceful and private setting.
