Without doubt, a particular feature of Dunham House is its location in the historic river crossing village of Dunham on Trent and its mature grounds. There is an enclosed south facing garden which is mostly laid to lawn with established trees and borders. The property is approached by hand gate with steps up from the pavement to the front panel door or via a gated driveway with good parking. The single storey buildings to the rear comprise a good sized games room and two stores which were the original former stables. These would make an ideal self-contained annexe or home office subject to the necessary planning consents being granted.

A degree of refurbishment is required yet the property offers potential to create a stunning family residence.
