About this property

  • Dunsmore is a beautifully presented family home offering comfortable, modern- day living with an easy flow of light and attractive rooms. This delightful property stands in the privacy of beautiful mature gardens, extending to approximately 1.25 acres, with unspoilt views to the south and Grinshill Hill behind. Dating from 1920's, the house is built of local Grinshill stone and has been fully re-rendered with French doors and balconies opening to the south facing aspect. It still retains many period features including exposed Grinshill stone walls, pitch pine doors, staircase and stone fireplaces which blend with the contemporary styling.

    A large, glazed entrance porch with vaulted ceiling, provides access into the quarry tiled hallway. The hallway leads into the bespoke kitchen which is well equipped with a range of fitted cupboards and units with granite worktops. There is a large central island, an integrated fridge, and dishwasher, and an oil fired, four oven AGA with warming plate companion.

    There is a useful utility room off with an integrated freezer. The kitchen dining area opens out into a large family room with solid wood flooring , dual aspect windows and French doors opening onto a separate York stone patio area.

    The drawing room is a particularly elegant room with a large stone open fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove and leads to a garden room with doors to the south facing terrace. The adjoining room shares the same aspect, with French doors leading onto the rear terrace and would work well as a sittingor
    dining room.

    Off the family room is a sitting room or fifth bedroom with French doors and a shower room and WC off. Beyond is a study area which could be adapted to a kitchen to create a self-contained annexe if required. Also off the family room is an office or play room which benefits from a dual aspect, feature Grinshill stone walls and French doors leading outside to a York stone area. A boot room and WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

    Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which enjoy the superb views towards the South Shropshire Hills. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room along with French doors opening to a wide south facing balcony. Bedroom two and three have French doors opening onto Juliette balconies. There is also a family bathroom.

    Dunsmore is approached through double gates that open to a spacious, gravel , parking area with separate double gates to create an in-and-out drive and a separate pedestrian gate. The house has complete privacy with an integral double garage with an electric door. Adjacent to the garage is a workshop.

    There are electric points at both sets of double gates, the borders of the rear garden, the greenhouse and the shed.

    The beautiful and varied gardens have softly curving, terraced lawns around herbaceous and mature tree borders and landscaped beds, well stocked with a selection of shrubs and specimen plants including rhododendron and azalea.

    Above the south facing lawns is a York stone terrace and ornamental pond. To the west is a further lawn which is abundant with spring bulbs. To the east is an apple orchard leading to a lawn and at the bottom of the garden a greenhouse.
