The Story

Opening the doors of the orangery and heading out into the fresh air with a cup of tea, the new owners of Dunedin will appreciate the seclusion of their mature, leafy garden. The property is ideally placed for anyone seeking an easy commute into London as well as all the benefits Gerrards Cross has to offer, explains the agent marketing the property. “The position of the house is fantastic,” she says. “Homes like this, within walking distance of the town centre, really are few and far between. Dunedin is set back from the road, behind electric gates, with a good-sized drive and a lovely back garden, which includes a hidden orchard area with pear and plum trees, as well as raspberry canes. From Dunedin, the new owners will be able to walk to the common and into Gerrards Cross, with its shops and restaurants, through ancient woodland. Schooling in the area is excellent, it takes just 15 minutes to reach Heathrow and you can be at Marylebone in London within 20 minutes of catching a train from the station.”

GOOD LIVING SPACE
Believed to date back to around 1930, the substantial house, which takes its name from the Gaelic word for Edinburgh, Dùn Èideann, sits on a plot of approximately 0.5 acres. Having been extended in the past, it today offers a combination of character-filled, inviting rooms and bright, airy spaces with a more contemporary feel. “There is a very large, bright entrance hall, which has a wooden floor and could make a marvellous dining hall,” she says. “From here there is access to all the well-proportioned reception areas; these offer great flexibility of use, depending on the lifestyle requirements of the new owners.” She adds: “And, subject to the relevant planning permissions, with the garage at the front of the house, there could even be the possibility of creating additional living space.”

EXCELLENT KITCHEN
Family life in the home is likely to focus on the kitchen dining room and the orangery.
“The kitchen is a lovely room, which has been beautifully finished to a high specification,” says the agent. “It has Fisher Paykel appliances and some superb features, such as a built-in deep fat fryer and dishwasher drawers. This would be a fabulous kitchen to cook in for anyone who enjoys entertaining and is also ideal for a family as there is plenty of space for a table and chairs.”

BRIGHT ORANGERY
Both the kitchen and the orangery enjoy under-floor heating, making them warming and welcoming all year round. “The brick-built orangery, with its glass roof, is a wonderful feature. Opening on to the south-facing garden, it is a lovely, sunny place to sit. It is currently being used as a family room but again could have all sorts of uses. There is a wet room in this part of the house, which has a level floor and could be perfect for wheelchair users, as well as people coming straight out of the swimming pool and into the house.”

FAMILY LIFE
The dining room and the orangery open on to the garden, allowing those living here to enjoy the garden as much as possible when the weather is warm. “The dining room is currently set up as a playroom but could be an exceptional family room: it is very bright and comes straight off the kitchen,” she says. “The drawing room has a very different feel, with its beautiful original beams and its attractive fireplace. This is a very relaxing room, which is also perfect for entertaining.” Upstairs, there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and dressing room, and three of the other bedrooms have en suite shower rooms. “The fifth bedroom could make a brilliant dressing room for bedroom two,” she suggests.

GREAT LOCATION
The whole house flows very well, she observes, and offers outstanding living space within a great location. “This house could be ideal for a family. They will be able to walk to the common to play football or to see the duck pond, and there is plenty to do in Gerrards Cross and the surrounding area too,” she says. “But the new owners of this house will also appreciate everything they have right here. The mature garden is private and has plenty of room for sitting outside, playing on the grass and enjoying barbecues. The outside pool will be great fun in the summer months and the house as a whole offers a unique combination of traditional character and spacious modern living.”

Dunedin sits on a plot of approximately 0.5 acres in total. It is set back from the road, with electric security gates and a large front driveway, offering plenty of off-road parking.
