Bedrooms: 8
This detached character property built in 1854 and is believed to have been the Mill Manager's house for the former 19th-century textile factory Dunkirk Mills, which is situated opposite (now converted to apartments). The house is Grade II-listed and noted for its Cotswold stone roof, a Regency veranda porch with wrought-iron trelliswork and a pair of double doors with an arch. Internally the house retains a wealth of character features, including exposed beams, stained-glass windows, plasterwork and attractive stone fireplaces, though the interiors have been updated and are well presented throughout.

The substantial accommodation extends for more than 4300 sq ft across three floors, with a variety of reception spaces for both formal and informal entertaining and eight bedrooms across two floors offering further versatility. In addition, the property benefits from an adjoining cottage comprising a kitchen/sitting room, bedroom and bathroom, which is ideally suited to guest accommodation.

On the ground floor, an entrance hall leads to a drawing room, 2nd sitting room, dining/kitchen/breakfast room with AGA, study/library with mezzanine snug area, utility room and cloakroom with w.c. There is also a separate chef's kitchen and a boot room to the rear leading out to the garden. On the first floor there is a generous landing leading to a principal bedroom with en suite shower room, three further good size bedrooms and a family bath/shower room. There are a further four bedrooms and a useful cloakroom on the second floor, which have potential for further development (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).
