About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Richard Dunn

I have been the owner of this delightful property for 13 years and have upgraded much of the house and garden including adding a lovely heated pool and large terrace. I love walking my dogs around the beautiful countryside and working in the garden in the summer. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Year property purchased 2007
Why this location? It is rural but near all the amenities. Life here is as it used to be in England. No traffic jams and the friendly locals have time to talk to you. Just a short stroll to a shop selling bread and local produce with a bar and restaurant next door and a 27 hole golf course just a bit further along.
Unique benefits of property Suitable for dogs, large families or groups of friends. The large garden is a bonus and the 3 newly fitted bathrooms and kitchen have enhanced the property even more. Outside the garden has been landscaped with flower borders containing roses and lavender also a new terrace to watch the sun sets and the other terrace surrounding the heated swimming pool has been extended to provide more room for the sunloungers. In the large grounds that surround the property we have created a secret area in a wooded glade with a picnic hut where you can look over the corn field towards the trees and sometimes we see the deer if we are very quiet.
