Dating back to 1906, understated glamour is evident in each room at Dunelm and is lovingly teased out through the use of complementary and sympathetic décor; at once paying homage to the homes original features and heralding its arrival into the 21st century.

The grand reception hall is a room with which it is impossible not to fall in love instantly. Embodying the elegance of the Edwardian period, a coffered ceiling embraces a ceiling rose from which stylish lighting is suspended, delivering ambience to the proceedings.

Ahead, the staircase rises to the half landing, light flowing down from the large stained-glass window, with additional plinth lighting offering an atmospheric subdued option for evenings.

Passing the detailed carvings of the staircase, continue on ahead into the jaw-dropping, film-set perfect, open living space.

This free-flowing space with a stunning bay window extending the entire length of the room, transitioning seamlessly from breakfast-kitchen, to casual dining, to formal dining to private alfresco dining terrace.

Beyond the kitchen, a practical element to Dunelm can be found in its every-day entrance and boot room - ideal for dog owners - and storage-laden utility room, with plumbing for a washer and dryer, double sink, easy clean units and elegant splashback tiles.

Often overlooked in lesser homes, sneak a peek at the Victorian-feel WC/powder room, decorated in opulent lighting and featuring a bespoke vanity unit and sink.

Grandeur and comfort combine in the formal sitting room, where the light simply streams in through vast window elegantly dressed in linen drapes, hand-sewn by an artisan local seamstress.

A true winter sitting room, huddle up with the family in front of the open-fire. One of only a handful of Worsley homes to feature windows either side of the fireplace, watch as the snow coats the distant trees above a roaring Christmas fire.

Prior to reaching the kitchen, on the right another cosy room beckons; the snug and inviting study.

Dressed in Farrow & Ball paint and classic drapery, with a large ornamental fireplace and lighting by Astro, alongside Focus SB fixtures and handles, this room is utterly atmospheric.

The day room is evocative of a chic hotel, with exposed features interspersed with period style sconce lighting.

The perfect escape for youngsters, ideal for 'date night-in' and so versatile; why not set this space up as a games room, yoga studio...anything you like!

A further music room can be found down here, doubling as a chill out room or simply a spill over from the drawing room.

The intricately carved staircase, takes you up to the first floor. So bright, light flows through the window on the turn in the staircase and also from the ornate lighting on the landing.

There is an evocative guest bedroom, with a Parisian boudoir mood, with its own dreamy view, clad in tones of grey and 'Dressage'

The second guest double bedroom is bathed in warm grey, allowing the views out to the golf course, taking centre stage. The third bedroom has a kids-feel, echoing its woodland views.

The family bathroom is simply breath taking, oozing period character with a contemporary slant.

Light floods into the master bedroom, from the direction of Worsley. The finer details are what truly set this room apart: the feature walls; the concealed television, unobtrusive storage, and coloured iron radiators.

At Dunelm, the garden is so well concealed from all sides, enjoy total privacy for you and your family.

Mature trees to the front mark one side of the boundary, with a ½ acre of woodland to discover to the rear. Discover the Greenhouse, built in the same time as the house and with a quaint gardeners WC. The rosemary clay roofs, one even having its own lightning conductor - a real life tale.

Follow the terrace round to discover the traditional garden at the rear, with more seating and a barbecue area filled with the aroma of herb planters; a real Mediterranean oasis.

Swathed in slopes of green lawn surrounding Dunelm, the grounds are simply evocative of every child's dream haven. There even is a play area; located to the right of the path. Sheltered, secure and utterly peaceful.

The elevated position of Dunelm in its wraparound grounds is the icing on the cake. Rabbits, squirrels and foxes have all been know to frequent this idyllic spot. As the autumn evenings draws in, curl up in front of your roaring fire or admire the view from your heated window seat.
