An elegant, charming, stylish period property, with equestrian facilities, in a sought after hamlet.
A beautiful family home, tastefully modernized, the renovation of Wolverton House started about 12 years, with further works taking place about 5 years ago. Wolverton House is an elegant, charming and glorious family home. Spacious accommodation is arranged over 3 floors including six bedrooms, three reception rooms and four bathrooms along with a separate office, stables and workshop.
There is also an all-weather manege, a tennis court and along with a stunning well-maintained garden, it makes for an ideal charming, classic family home. On entering the reception hall, oak flooring, oak beams and original fireplaces proffer warmth and charm. Original features throughout and contrary to what one would expect, the house is light and spacious. Through the hall and into the spacious light kitchen, Italian flagstones on the floor throughout the dining, kitchen and utility area.
French windows lead onto the terrace from both the kitchen and the dining area. A red Aga adds a modern twist and warmth in the winter. Oak features throughout. On the first floor elm floorboards lead into carpeted spacious bedrooms, two with en suites, all with built in cupboards. The second floor is a large guest suite, with an attic bedroom and a small bathroom.
Outside, a stunning sheltered, west facing terrace including a pond and fountain with steps up to the formal walled lawn and garden with colourful well stocked borders. Beyond, is the vegetable garden and raised beds (to include an asparagus bed), the tennis court and an all-weather manege with an adjacent paddock. An orchard sits adjacent to the stables, offering apples, pears, plum and others.
The stables consist of three loose boxes, neighbouring these is a further useful outbuilding which is currently being used as an office, however this space offers greater potential for an extra bedroom or conversion if needed/required.
The property is set back from the quiet country lane, with a private drive and parking area. There is a lead veranda/canopy built by local craftsmen and there is also planning permission for a conservatory to the south side of the house.
