This property is without doubt, exceptional! Lochturffin is a handsome and impressive combination of an original 17th century farmhouse that was enlarged over the years to include an adjoining gracious manor house that has been completely renovated by the current owners.
It is in fact two dwellings within one – the old farmhouse on three floors to the rear with an impressive manor house built in 1835 when the top level of the farmhouse was added, creating an 8 bedroomed home of yesteryear charm and elegance, redolent with character features, and up-dated to include contemporary design elements and modern-day comforts and conveniences.
It took great vision to restore Lochtur(n which was in a poor state of repair when the current owners purchased the property 20 years ago.
Refurbishment included new plumbing, updated electrics, added insulation, new timber windows - replaced as originals, three boilers, under floor heating
to a new shower-wet room, a gourmet farmhouse kitchen/dining room with family seating and log burner, as well as being totally re-decorated throughout. The décor is respectful of the historic provenance of the home, yet contemporary and timelessly elegant. The additions and renovations to the property reflect thoughtful design, superior workmanship and quality fixtures and fittings throughout, marrying old with new seamlessly.
The old coach house, stable block and corn barn have also been renovated retaining as many of the original features as possible whilst creating storage areas, a workshop and gym. The walled garden and Victorian Greenhouse are a sight to behold, with all external areas beautifully landscaped.
The Lochturffin Old Farmhouse holiday let which can accommodate 8 is adjacent to, but completely separate from the owner’s historic manor house, with its own private access and an enclosed garden, patio and hot tub. The accommodation set over 3 floors, is tastefully furnished, fully equipped and decorated to a high standard throughout and boasts a 'Visit Wales' 5 Star accreditation.
The grounds of the estate are captivating. A stone pillared entrance to the property sees a long tree lined driveway through the meadows and paddocks culminating in a circular turn and park area in front of the elegant home. The tennis court and orchard are alongside with the surrounding gardens of stone walled beds and borders are stocked with hardy shrubs and perennials. There are manicured lawns, and a glorious walled garden with fully restored Victorian greenhouse and charming potting shed.
A second laneway owned by the property leads to the rear where there is access, private parking plus a private lawn and garden for the Old Farmhouse section of the home – perfect for the privacy of the both the holiday makers and the property owners.
The views from both the old farmhouse and the manor house over the gardens, tennis court, orchard, walled garden and stunning rural countryside beyond are truly beautiful. Thoughtful planting over the years has resulted in a range of specimen trees, shrubs and plants around the property that provide seasonal interest and scenic beauty all throughout.
