Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Lot 1 – Wilverley Park
About 86 acres (35 ha)

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 sits elevated, 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.

Wilverley Coach House Lodge
At the head of the main driveway lies a quaint, one-storey lodge. The accommodation extends to 1,040 square feet in all, comprising a porch, central hallway, sitting room, kitchen, utility room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The cottage is currently occupied on a service occupancy.

Wilverley Park Cottage
Hidden in the south east corner of Lot 1 lies this attractive cottage accessed from a secondary driveway off Pinkney Lane. This driveway passes through the park, past the lake before entering a private garden and parking area. The cottage extends to almost 1,500 square feet and comprises two reception rooms, a study, kitchen with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. This cottage is currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.

Wilverley Farm & Dairy Cottage
Wilverley Farm lies to the south west of the main house, and is separately accessed from Pinkney Lane. The farm comprises a two steel portal frame buildings used for livestock accommodation, a brick-built dairy parlour and three concrete silage clamps. The buildings and land have been farmed under a contract to supply Marks & Spencer until recently.

To the south of the buildings lies Dairy Cottage. The accommodation extends to 850 square feet and comprises a kitchen, bathroom, two reception rooms and stairs up to two bedrooms. The buildings are currently used by the in-hand farm and Dairy Cottage is occupied on a service occupancy.

Wilverley Park lies just under a mile to the south west of Lyndhurst, a popular market town with an abundance of independent shops, cafés, galleries, pubs and hotels – it is a central focus and go-to destination of the New Forest National Park.

The estate lies in the southern half of the New Forest National Park, halfway between Southampton and Poole, north of Lymington and the picturesque Beaulieu River. The area benefits from excellent communication links - by road from London via M3 and M27, by rail from Waterloo to Brockenhurst (from 1hr 29min), and by air to Bournemouth and Southampton airports.
