Property spotlight: Exquisite restored wing of 17th century mansion near Edinburgh with stunning modern additions, on sale for £1.6m

Old Pencaitland House was originally the south wing of a substantial 17th century mansion house but when the main building was destroyed by fire in 1876 only the wings survived.

Old Pencaitland House, Pencaitland.

It has a lovely setting above the Tyne Water in the village of Pencaitland, about 12 miles south-east of Edinburgh, and is backed by the grounds of Winton Castle. A full renovation was carried out in 2005 to create an exquisite modern day home, while retaining the original house’s charm, and the property now comprises a large kitchen / living / dining room area, elegant drawing room, spectacular fully glazed garden room, and three luxurious bedroom suites. On the opposite side of a circular courtyard, a former brewhouse and ice house were restored as entertaining spaces and could form a separate living annexe. Externally, the original stone gate pillars and orbs open to an entrance drive and the house is set in a private garden extending to about 1.35 acres with a series of lawns interspersed with specimen trees, while a cast iron 'sugar bowl' water feature in the centre of the courtyard is a delightful feature. On the market with Savills for offers over £1,600,000, more details can be found HERE.
