General Description

Rennyhill House is a fine example of a Georgain Mansion built around 1760 of ashlar sandstone. The accommodation is laid out over three main floors with an attic flat above with a further two bedrooms. Working window shutters are fitted throughout the property.

At first floor level is a delightful Drawing Room overlooking the gardens to the south. On the ground floor is a spacious dining room for entertaining and a farmhouse style kitchen.

A classic Georgian wide stone staircase leads to all floors with 6 bedrooms (2 ensuite) and 3 further bathrooms and cloakroom/WC.

The attic floor was converted in 1996 to a two bedroom self contained flat with a bathroom and kitchen.

Outside are well kept gardens extending to over half an acre with a double garage and workshop.

In addition to the main house Wester Cottage is available by separate negotiation.

The attached two bedroom cottage is also available for sale with the main house. This extends to over 1000sqft (93m2).

Wester Cottage was sympathetically modernised in 1995 to form a spacious cottage suitable for letting or part of the main house.

Hot water and heating for radiators is provided by a Grant Vortex oil fired combi boiler. The hot water cylinder is unvented and 210L capacity.

Mains gas fires are fitted in the snug and dining room. There is a  large gas fired stove in the drawing room. The property has a fire safety certificate and is fitted with a Chubb mains operated fire alarm system.

HISTORY

Kilrenny owes its history to weaving, fishing and agriculture. The centre of the village includes Trade Street dating from medieval times when shoe makers, Farriers and weavers occupied the buildings with fisherman in Routine Row. The old school dates back to 1815 and is now used as the village hall. The area is surrounded by scheduled ancient monuments including carved stones from the 9th Century.

Rennyhill House dates from around 1760 and the east wing was removed in the 1970’s. The sellers have planning consent to rebuild the east wing to restore the Georgian symmetry and ground surveys have been undertaken recently.
