A splendid former public house standing in magnificent gardens of approximately 1.5 acres in this picturesque Chilterns hilltop hamlet.
It is difficult to be precise on the age of the property but records show that it was a public house in 1832. It was de-licensed in the 1990’s and has since evolved to become a very comfortable family home. The accommodation is light and airy, with all the rooms enjoying an outlook over the quite exceptional gardens.
The front door opens into a long and wide reception hall, with a door out to the garden and a staircase up to the first floor. The sitting room has an impressive inglenook fireplace as the focal point and enjoys a triple aspect, with casement doors out to the garden. Off the sitting room is a conservatory opening onto the garden. Working back up the hallway is a study and a cosy snug or dining room. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of light oak units, incorporating a central island and complemented by an LPG gas fired AGA; double casement doors lead out to the garden. Beyond the kitchen is the breakfast room and utility room.
On the first floor there is a generous master bedroom with built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, a family bathroom and an additional shower room.
The property is approached via a five bar gate leading to a large circular driveway, with a double carport and an adjoining garage. Beyond the main garage block lies a further double garage.
The gardens are an absolute delight and are just a wonderful setting for this property. They have been created and nurtured by the current owners, with little gardens within the garden. There are wide expanses of lawn, well stocked borders and geometric beds, interspersed with mature bushes and well maintained trees.
There is an enclosed outdoor heated swimming pool. Adjoining which is a large timber outbuilding (former stable block) divided into a pool and plant room, stores and a home office.
Situated in the heart of this historic and 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 and 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).
