A delightful period home offering a wonderful sense of space and grace in this picturesque Chilterns hilltop hamlet.
The property originally formed several cottages of early Victorian origin and has evolved over the years into a quite exceptional family home. The accommodation now provides outstanding modern-day family space, which balances beautifully with the charm and character of the period.
The front door opens in a reception lobby with a separate cloakroom. The huge kitchen/dining room delivers a wonderful contemporary space seldom found in a cottage, with bespoke kitchen units incorporating a central island and a four oven AGA. A fireplace at one end with a wood burner and a partly vaulted and glazed dining area with casement doors leading out onto the terrace. The rest of the ground floor accommodation is cleverly divided into two areas, with a large comfortable triple aspect sitting room and a generous study at one end, while the other has a cosy snug and a separate TV room. In addition to this there is a home office, which can be accessed both externally and internally. Completing the ground floor is a further hallway with a useful laundry and another door out to the driveway.
There are two staircases at either end of the house which gives tremendous flexibility. The large master bedroom has a bright triple aspect and a huge en suite bathroom. There are four further double bedrooms and two more beautifully appointed bathrooms.
The front is approached via electric wooden gates leading to a gravel forecourt providing ample parking and a double garage. The rear garden is a delight and enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect. Laid predominantly to lawn there are raised beds and a generous terrace. Numerous flowering bushes and shrubs intersperse the borders, together with a mature hedge on the boundary.
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).
