Speargate House is a truly exceptional Grade II listed period home dating back to the 18th century and sits in an enviable position on the edge of this highly sought after Nadder Valley village.

This beautiful home was once a Medieval Hall House and has been subject to an extensive restoration and renovation programme by the current owners making it the charming and versatile home you find today. The accommodation has been beautifully maintained and offers delightful well balanced rooms that you would expect from a house of this period and quality. Its 18th century origins provide the typical period features of its era, including open fireplaces, exposed wooden beams and mullion windows.

The accommodation is immaculately presented throughout and allows scope for the next owner to put their own stamp on this wonderful property. The large dual aspect drawing room is a particular feature with carved wooden beams, window seats and a grand open fire place. Across the hall is the pretty dining room with direct access to the sizeable Smallbone kitchen/breakfast room. In addition there is a cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove, bespoke pantry, utility room, boiler room, cloakroom and a timber framed conservatory with views over the garden.

Upstairs on the first floor there are three sizeable bedroom suites, the master is dual aspect with views over the gardens and serviced by an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom also benefits from an en-suite and there is a separate shower room to service the remaining bedroom.

In addition to the main accommodation a large office has been created to the north flank of the house and benefits from its own separate entrance. An exceptional guest suite has been designed above with free standing bath, enclosed w.c. and basin, and views over the glorious garden. An interlinking door gives access to the main house.

Speargate House presents a wonderful opportunity to purchase a home of immense charm and local heritage. An internal inspection is strongly recommended.


Speargate House is situated in the highly sought after Nadder Valley village of Dinton. Dinton itself is a quintessentially English village surrounded by beautiful countryside offering all the usual country pursuits, a Medieval church, community shop, cricket green, pub and a primary and pre-school (OFSTED Good). The house is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a stones throw from National Trust property Philipps House and Dinton Park.
