Downstairs of Penraevon

Downstairs of Penraevon

The inside of the house has been maintained but as it has been an office it hasn’t had much love. All the windows have bars as it used to be a drug rehabilitation clinic before becoming an I.T department. The electrics are up to date and we have fire alarms everywhere. They have boarded up the fireplaces and we are dying to have a look to see what is there. So let’s take a look around the downstairs, there are five rooms downstairs plus a bathroom.

The main reception (Drawing room) room has a beautiful plastered ceiling, inglenook fireplace, and massive cupboards.

The kitchen used to be a staff room and is not very inspiring, this was the original scullery and there is also a large pantry.

The dining room  (now Kitchen snug) is very bland but has a north and a south facing window, this was originally the kitchen, and would have led through to the pantry and then the scullery (which is now used as a kitchen)

The second reception room (now Dining Room) has a large west facing bay, boarded up fireplace and some interesting plaster detailing (as well as a collection of fire extinguishers) this would have originally been the dining room.
