Realise regal dreams with this stunning, listed mansion home, which has just come on the market.
Located in the heart of the beautiful Galloway countryside, overlooking the Cairnsmore Fleet and the Galloway hills, Shennanton House is an impressive two storey U-plan English vernacular country house, which is on the market with Savills for offers over £1,300,000.
Originally built in 1908 for a prosperous family of rubber plantation owners, Shennanton House is a Category A Listed building that was designed by the famous Glasgow architect Henry Edward Clifford.
His varied portfolio also included the Royal Troon golf clubhouse, Clydesdale cricket club pavilion and Arts and Crafts mansions throughout Ayrshire, Glasgow and Wigtownshire.
Not only is Shennanton is a fine example of English Tudor/ vernacular style, it is set within mature landscaped gardens and grounds, which extend to approximately 25 acres and include a mini golf course, a croquet lawn and tennis court.
The property was extensively refurbished in 1988 and converted into four self contained properties, each with an abundance of charm and character, to provide spacious and luxurious accommodation of between three and five bedrooms – the majority of which have en suite facilities.
Inside there’s many original features such as woodwork, carvings, stonework, and fireplaces. New additions include a games room with snooker table.
If you’d like all this space for yourself, then you’d have to make enquiries to the local planning department as permissions for a single residential home has since lapsed.
Instead the mansion home has been run as a successful holiday letting business – something which could continue with the new owner.
