Full property description
A charming five-bedroom detached house, set back from the road with an attractive frontage and magnificent driveway and set within a secluded plot of 0.52 acres in the heart of Boughton village.

This property offers highly versatile accommodation, a substantial double garage, a huge detached barn and beautiful established gardens all situated in an enchanting and private setting.
A double-glazed porch and attractive door opens into a spacious, bright entrance hallway, with beautiful tiles laid throughout. Directly in front are the stairs to the first floor, whilst a WC and useful storage cupboard can be found within the entrance hall. To the right, there is an elegant dining room, which sits adjacent to the modern style kitchen. Neff appliances and an induction hob have been beautifully integrated within these smart wall and floor units and finished with striking granite worktops. From the kitchen, there is a handy utility room and access to the garden.
To the left of the entrance hall, there is a handsome sitting room with a feature limestone fireplace and a beautiful circular bay window. This space flows into the rear conservatory, which has delightful views of the garden and its many fruit trees. The conservatory is enjoyed all year round with its bespoke blinds offering shade in the summer and built-in heating offering warmth in the winter, making this a wonderful asset to this lovely home.
On the first floor, a large galleried landing gives access to an airing cupboard, a well-appointed family bathroom and four generous double bedrooms. There is also a large study/bedroom that is positioned between the landing and the main suite, with magnificent views over the pretty gardens. The main suite was added more recently and is a grand and impressive space with an elegant en-suite bathroom with a rolled top bath.
Wilverley is set within 0.52 acres of beautiful gardens which wrap around the house. A patio area runs around the conservatory and kitchen and gives access to the side of the house, with the lawn to the rear. There are established hedges and shrubs, as well as a flowering cherry tree, an apple tree and a plum tree, which provide a wonderful feeling of privacy.
The brick-built double garage which can be accessed from the garden has electricity, a sink area built into the universal space, shelving and worktops have been incorporated allowing this superb workspace to be organised and tidy.
The carriage driveway is a wonderful entrance to this home with a beautiful luquidambar sat within its centre. To the right of the driveway there is an old original barn building, which currently serves as storage, however could potentially be converted into a home office, subject to the necessary consents.
