Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
Dunsley Manor originally formed part of the Dunsley Hall Estate with its initial 18th incarnation being the Estate Managers House. The house has been extended and improved over the years with additions unfolding the 19th and 20th centuries. It has been the family home of the current owners for the last 40 years and its sale represents an outstanding opportunity to buy a 'slice of Kinver history'. Although not listed Dunsley Manor is recognized in The Staffordshire Historic Environment Report (H.E.R) and as such its availability to market represents quite possibly the most important historic house sale opportunity in Kinver in the last 20 years.

The house boasts four impressive reception rooms, a study, a delightful family kitchen, 4/5 bedrooms, 2 dressing rooms and four bathrooms. Being discreetly set in circa 1.5 acres of well maintained formal gardens with an all weather tennis court and detached double garage with annex/gym/home office over. Outstanding period features abound from feature fireplaces to exceptional joinery and ornate plasterwork. Whilst impressive in size the house is intimate in character and represents an unrivalled opportunity for its next custodian.


Electric gates open into a tarmac and fine gravel drive, which sweeps majestically to substantial parking to the side and front of the main house for a number of cars along with access to gardens and gate into an outdoor utility area.
