About this property

  • Pencraig Manor is an attractive and substantial Country House thought to date c.1800s and has been sympathetically enlarged and maintained over the years. The property has been in the same family ownership for two generations but now offers an exciting opportunity for new owners to look after and breathe new life into it exploring the many different uses it may have.

    The generous accommodation space and potential to convert some of the outbuildings (stp) provides opportunities for large/extended families looking for space to live, work from home and generate income generating avenues. Its proximity to numerous tourist destinations is also an advantage for those seeking to look into tourism.

    Main House Ground Floor
    The welcoming front entrance lobby leads into the main reception/entrance hall with a smart Victorian tiled floor, wood burning stove and French doors that open out onto a pleasant sun terrace area to the front. A door leads off the entrance hall to a large drawing room with a high ceiling and an oil burning stove providing a warm focal point. The entrance hall continues into the heart of the house with doors leading off to the main reception rooms. On the left is the dining room with a boarded floor and fireplace. Further down the hall on the left is the sitting room with another wood burning stove. Steps lead down off the hallway to a useful cellar. At the end of the hall is a cosy snug room, adjacent multi-use room and laundry room. The kitchen breakfast room is also situated at the rear of the house and features a fitted kitchen and a smart red Aga taking centre stage. A side porch leads to the rear courtyard. A useful ground floor bathroom suite completes the ground floor.

    First Floor
    The main staircase rises up from the entrance hall to the generous first floor accommodation that includes 6/7 bedrooms depending on the need for a dressing room adjacent to the main bedroom. These bedrooms share the use of a bathroom suite and separate toilet.

    The property is approached by an attractive gravelled drive, flanked by pretty pasturefields. Pencraig enjoys mature landscaped grounds and gardens with extensive lawned areas, mature trees, bushes, hedges, flower borders and an old Ha-Ha.

    The Outbuildings
    An appealing feature of Pencraig is its extensive range of attractive stone outbuildings set around the original courtyard that includes the old Grade II Listed Coach House with attached old annexe area, old stables/livestock accommodation, workshops, store rooms etc. This building is listed as it is “an unusually attractive and well-preserved stable block of the early 19th century”. These buildings are all useful in their own right but offer the potential for conversion into further accommodation/other uses (stp - subject to planning). The old Annexe area is connected to the house off the kitchen and has its own kitchen area that leads into an old reception room. Stairs rise up from this room to two large rooms and two smaller rooms. This old annexe is in need of refurbishment and renovation but offers potential.

    Gate Lodge
    A charming single storey Gate Lodge provides extra accommodation space for family, friends or paying guests. The Lodge has been used in recent times as a successful and popular holiday let. It offers modern comfortable accommodation including a kitchen, sitting room, 3 bedrooms and bathroom.

    The Land
    Pencraig enjoys a delightful setting within a ring-fence of its own pretty pastureland and areas of woodland. This land offers both privacy and amenity value but also the ability to keep horses, livestock etc for those wanting to work the land as well. In all, the property extends to about 24 acres (stms – subject to measured survey).
