History of Penylan Hall
While the house is mainly Georgian, it was extended in the Regency period when Italianate Villa-style elements were added. It’s now been restored and completely renovated to a very high standard to provide light, attractive accommodation with fine period features.
The approximate internal floor area measures 11,232 square feet. An elegant hall leads to the main reception rooms which have high moulded ceilings, original fireplaces, and sash windows. The dining room and morning rooms are connected by a Regency garden room and doors open onto a south-facing terrace and gardens. The library has been fitted with bookshelves and cupboards and is currently used as an office. There is also a drawing room, morning room, sitting room, playroom, boot room, and cellar.
In the bespoke fitted kitchen, there’s a four-oven Aga along with electric ovens, two fridges, a utility room, and a pantry. There is access from the kitchen to an inner courtyard which can be used as an outside dining area.
The main staircase leads to a galleried landing lit by a roof lantern. On the first floor, there are seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. The main bedroom has a hidden dressing room and ensuite bathroom where views of the amazing countryside can be enjoyed from a sunken bath. A separate staircase leads to the second floor where there’s a further bedroom, an ensuite bathroom, and a snug. For anyone needing yet more room, there is also attic space.
