    Ian Dunlop

    Franchise Partner

    Living locally means that what affects our customers affects us as a family. I have worked for Hunters since 2004, starting in York on the front desk and was promoted to Account Manager in the New Homes department in Leeds in 2005. In Leeds I dealt with clients with small projects to developments of more than 200 properties throughout the north. In December 2008 I started this business operating as a Hunters franchise covering the Haxby area and now live and work in Wigginton so I am part of the community. To date we have sold over 400 properties across the area and I love the job of helping people move. I am married to Sam and we have 2 boys. The eldest is at Joseph Rowntree School and the youngest is at Wigginton Primary. Keen footballers the boys play for Haxby Town and represent Wigginton Squash Club where the family are all members and is a great club. I have a keen interest in music and love going to gigs as well as spending time with the family, but spend most of my time off ferrying the boys around! I am proud to support a number of community groups and charities.

    Ian’s sister Claire has worked with him for the last 6 years. Previous to that Claire worked at 2 other estate agents in York in their lettings departments. She joined Ian part time to support the growth of the business and has completed various training courses in the Hunters Academy over the last 6 years. Recently Claire has increased her hours at the business to a full time position and has successfully completed Hunters valuers course. Claire is one of the main reasons that the business is so successful. She is a great people person and puts the clients mind at rest.

The village is extremely popular with families and a big attraction is the Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy school which has an Ofsted Outstanding rating from November 2008 and was converted to an Academy within the last 5 years. The school then feeds into the Huntington School which was Ofsted rated Outstanding in December 2017.

There are a variety of house types in Strensall ranging from 1 bed quarter houses up to large family detached homes in the village with period properties found mainly on ‘The Village’.

Shipton

The village also lies on the A19 providing road access between York and the North East with a bus service to York and Easingwold. 

Shipton’s full village name is actually ‘Shipton by Beningbrough’. The reason is the village is located close to Beningbrough Hall which was acquired by the National Trust and is also linked to the National Portrait Gallery hosting various exhibitions and pieces on permanent loan. A stunning building the Italian inspired Hall (in its current format) was constructed over 300 years ago and is one of Yorkshire’s hidden gems with stunning grounds and 8 acres of gardens.  At one point it was the home of the Dawnay family whose name is still visible in Shipton, notably on the pub ‘Dawnay Arms’. It is a wonderful place to visit and attracts over 14,000 visitors a year.

Shipton has its own church and also the Dawnay Arms which serves food including a gluten free menu. The village is located just off a National Cycle Route from York which also passes Skelton and Overton. There is a Community Centre near the church which has a playground and playing field behind.

The village has a primary school named ‘Forest of Galtres School’ with an Ofsted rating of Good in May 2013. The school then feeds into Easingwold School about 7 miles to the north.
