Kennelwood House was sold out of the neighbouring Combermere Abbey Estate in the 1970's. The house is listed Grade II and a fine example of a half timbered 17th Century country house. The timber frame incorporates brick elevations with solid oak windows under a slate roof. Internally the house offers manageable, well lit, accommodation that is full of character and suitable for day to day family living. All the rooms enjoy aspects over the gardens and grounds. It retains many original features with exposed beams and roof trusses, inglenook fireplace, impressive oak staircase and galleried landing.
Kennelwood House is approached over sweeping York stone and granite set drive with a turning circle.
