Live the country house dream at Penylan Hall near Oswestry

If you’re fortunate enough to be in the market for a spot of Shropshire grandeur, we’ve found a gem.

Approached through woodland and parkland, Penylan Hall near Oswestry ticks all the country house boxes. The eight bedroom, grade II listed Georgian home dates back to the 1830s with the character features to prove it. Feature fireplaces, period staircases and sash windows abound, and yet renovations have transformed this Italianate villa into a thoroughly liveable abode.

Reception rooms include a grandly proportioned drawing room; a dining room and morning room, opening to an outdoor terrace; and a library with bespoke cabinetry. The kitchen meanwhile boasts handmade units, an Aga, Miele coffee machine and two Liebherr fridge freezers, with utility room and pantry beyond.

A galleried landing provides access to the first floor’s seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, while a separate staircase leads to the second floor’s sitting room, eighth bedroom and en suite bathroom.

That’s not all though, there’s also a two bedroom coach house in which to house guests or office work, and did we mention the grounds? There are 11 acres of them, incorporating formal gardens and rolling grounds – as befits a home of such impressive proportions. Welcome home!

Penylan Hall is on the market for offers over £3,000,000 with Savills in Chester. For more information visit:
