A fine and elegant listed former manse in a secluded rural setting.
St Brandon is a fine example of a manse property with period style features including high ceilings, sanded and varnished floorboards, Georgian finished windows, window shutters, panel doors, grooved door frames, plaster cornice work, dado and picture rails and fireplaces.
An elegant stone staircase leads to the vestibule with cloak cupboard and into the welcoming hallway which offers independent access to the main living quarters and affords a good flow of entertaining space. A well appointed drawing room has twin aspect windows allowing a lovely garden aspect with feature fireplace. Formal dining is available in the dining room which mirrors the outlook of the first public room and has a traditional style fireplace. Convenience is catered for with a serving/prepping kitchen for quick delivery to the dining room. With twin aspect windows at the rear, the family room has a cosy wood burning stove making an informal living area. Tucked to the side of the staircase is a cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin.
The substantial lower level has areas with natural stone flooring. Handmade painted solid wood cabinets make up the dining kitchen with the focal point being the cream range cooker. The morning room is a delightful space to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or early supper, and has twin aspect windows again with the additional feature of a fireplace. Everyday tasks can take place in the large laundry room with twin Belfast style sinks and the boot room is very useful for outdoor equipment and clothing. There is a versatile double bedroom which completes the configuration on this level. Flooded with an abundance of light are the stairwell and landings for the second floor with a feature cupola. Flanked on either side of the staircase are two double bedrooms both separated with shower rooms. A further bedroom is currently used as a study.

St Brandon House exudes a real sense of grandeur when you see it sitting proudly surrounded by sweeping lawn, yet inside it is also warm and welcoming, the formal elegance complemented by soft décor and traditional design.Fiona Gormley
