Property Summary

Dunera is a must see. Nestled along the quiet and secluded Back Row area of Lilliesleaf, this five bedroom detached family home is an eclectic mix of old and new, combining lovely period features with contemporary and modern kitchen and bathroom facilities and tasteful décor.

Set in a generous plot of approx. half an acre, the impressive garden grounds offer a great deal of privacy along with multiple outbuildings, decking, patio areas, shed, log store, greenhouse and kitchen garden. The driveway can accommodate several vehicles and a very large outbuilding with workshop and mezzanine level is a great advantage. A separate single car garage and drive is located to the other side of the property.
