Property description

Dunsborough Park was originally part of the substantinal landholdings of nearbly Newark Priory founded by Augustinian cannons in the early 12th century and sacked on the orders of Henry VIII at the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538. The Dunsborough lands were granted by the king to a nobelman and soon afterwards a modest Tudor farmhouse with a single central chimney was built on the site.

Extended by a succession of wealthy owners over centuries, that simple building forms the core of the grand Grade II listed Dunsborough House, which today stands in about 117 acres of park and pasture, dotted with fine trees (some of the Oaks reputed to be over 600 years old) and woodland and skirted by the meandering River Wey.

Dunsborough Park is a trully delightful English country house, Listed Grade II, approached by a long private drive and sitting in outstanding gardens with views out over its own parkland, watermeadows and woodland beyond. Discreetly positioned on the northern edge of the picturesque village of Ripley, the Estate is situated in a highly desirable area only 23 miles from central London. The astonishingly attractive formal gardens are regularly open to the public, particularly aroudn the famous tulip festival in April, which is run by the current owner. The house, appears modest on approach down the long drive. Inside however, is an enchanting traditional English family home bursting with appeal and character. Flag stone floors, wooden panelling and floor to ceiling windows, the property is light and warm with open fires throughout.

Dunsborough House exudes character and style with a comfortable combination of both tradition and more contemporary aspect, which mutually complement one another.
