Boveney Court: A Timeless Retreat with Modern Elegance
Welcome to Boveney Court, an enchanting Grade II Listed property nestled in the historic Dorney Village. This timeless retreat showcases the perfect blend of period charm and modern elegance. Some parts of this magnificent building trace their origins back to the 17th century, and the property has been lovingly updated to offer spacious and flexible accommodation across two floors.
As you approach, you’ll be greeted by an impressive gabled porch with a 4-centred stone archway, flanked by Tuscan pilasters. Diamond-paned leaded windows cast a warm glow, and the hall welcomes you with a gallery and a stately fireplace. The more recent additions, introduced in the 20th century, seamlessly fuse the character of the past with contemporary kitchen and bathrooms, creating a truly exceptional character residence.
The ground floor features the oldest part of the building, with the highlight being the double-height drawing room. Beamed walls and ceilings, a full-length gallery, parquet flooring, and an impressive fireplace create an inviting space for formal gatherings or family get-togethers. The north wing leads to a comfortable sitting room, while the west wing houses two more expansive reception rooms. The modern kitchen is the heart of this home, with country-style cabinetry, integrated appliances, and a large central island with a breakfast bar. A dining area provides ample space for family meals. Completing this floor are a study and a cloakroom.
Upstairs, the principal bedroom is a serene haven, featuring dual aspects, fitted wardrobes, and a luxurious en suite bathroom with a contemporary soaking tub and a separate shower. The west wing offers three more bedrooms (one with an en suite), a shower room, and a bathroom. Across the galleried walkway in the north wing, you’ll find an additional spacious bedroom with beamed walls and ceilings, a feature fireplace, and wood flooring.
Outside, the property is accessed via electric gates, leading to a sweeping gravel driveway and an expansive forecourt. The mature gardens, with their lush lawns and stately trees, create a picturesque backdrop. A large sun terrace with decorative balustrade runs along the rear of the house, ideal for outdoor entertaining, and offers delightful views over the extensive lawn and planted beds, culminating in superb formal topiary.
Boveney Court is situated in the conservation area of Dorney, offering stunning walks on the common and along the Thames pathway. The house is adjacent to Dorney Lake, the site of the 2012 Olympic Rowing events, where the GB team claimed a total of 12 medals.
