A delightful period cottage standing in wonderful gardens in this picturesque Chilterns hilltop hamlet.
This charming cottage dates in origin from the late nineteenth century and has evolved over the years to become a very comfortable family home. The accommodation is light and airy, with all the principal rooms enjoying an aspect over the quite exceptional garden.
The front door opens into a long and wide reception hall with terracotta floor tiles serving the main ground floor rooms. The sitting room enjoys a triple aspect with a fireplace and wood burning stove as the focal point. The dining is a generous size and has a dual aspect over the garden along with a comfortable study. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a bespoke range of cream painted units complemented by an oil fired AGA. The terracotta floor tiles continue through the kitchen, utility room and into the snug/family room. The latter has casement doors opening out onto the garden. On the first floor there is a vaulted master bedroom with dressing area and an en suite bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms are all double and there is a family bathroom.
The property is approached via a gravel driveway which leads to a parking area and barn style double carport with adjoining store. The gardens are an absolute delight and are just the perfect setting for this cottage. They have been cleverly landscaped, with wide expanses of lawn, well stocked borders and geometric beds, interspersed with mature bushes and well maintained trees. The garden backs onto open fields with views across a picturesque valley.
Situated in the heart of this very peaceful hamlet just two miles from the village of Wendover. The stunning countryside surrounding Dunsmore offers some of the best walks in the area, including Coombe Hill and the Chequers Estate. With its eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, Wendover has without doubt one of the most appealing high streets in the Chilterns. The Chiltern Line offers an excellent reliable service to London Marylebone from either Wendover or Great Missenden (45 mins), whilst access to the M25 can be found via the A41(M) at Tring (5 miles), or alternatively the M40 at High Wycombe (11 miles).
