Set in one of the UK?s most beautiful and dramatic areas of countryside is Pembryn Hall, a beautiful 8-bedroom Georgian country house.
The property is situated on the edge of Offa?s Dyke, a well-known Shropshire beauty spot, close to Montgomery and Welshpool. The house overlooks some of the country?s most arresting landscapes, and the 23 acres of land include a part-walled garden, paddocks, an orchard, woodland and a lake situated just behind the main house.
There are also several outbuildings, including a separate 3-bedroom cottage, a vinehouse and a unique stone and timber children?s castle.
The main house is listed grade II and was built in 1797 for the Telford Industrialist Richard Payne Knight. The wings on each side were added in the 19th century, and make this a spacious and comfortable home, retaining many period features, such as the oak-boarded floors and the Georgian oak staircase.
Extensive renovation over recent years means the property is in excellent condition, and the recently added kitchen, which retains the original cast-iron range and quarry tile floor, perfectly complements the traditional, bright style of the rest of the house.
The estate is located 2 miles from Montgomery and around 23 miles from Shrewsbury, which has a mainline railway station operating regular services to Birmingham.
