The Property
Pen Y Wern Hall is a substantial country house dating to the mid-18th Century, of Georgian architecture with latter Victorian additions. The property is believed to have served as the Dower House to nearby Plas Teg, a Grade I Listed Jacobean property.

The property retains many pleasing architectural features of its age including sash windows, high coved ceilings, wood block flooring, panelled internal doors, deep skirtings and many original fireplaces.

The property benefits from extensive stone outbuildings which may present opportunities for conversion to an annexe or Airbnb/rental accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consent.

The Accommodation
A substantial four-panel front door opens into an imposing central reception hall, having limestone flooring with doors off to all principal reception rooms.

Across the hallway is a well-proportioned dining room with a decorative cast iron fireplace within an Edwardian style surround, pitch-pine block flooring and a serving hatch to the kitchen. The snug incorporates a fireplace within an arched brick surround and glazed French doors with sidelights affords wonderful south east views across the lawns and adjoining countryside.
