Built of dressed stone, under a slate and lead roof, Glenmayne occupies an elevated position with a south easterly aspect. It therefore benefits from a wonderfully light and bright atmosphere and provides flexible family accommodation together with well proportioned, formal reception rooms which retain a wealth of period features including decorative radiator grills, carved and marble fireplaces, panelling, original door and window furniture, plaster castings in the hall and drawing room, superb carved fireplaces and staircase, exquisitely ornate plaster work and restored stonework. The gilt room, the dining room and the reception hall with its staircase are of particular note and make Glenmayne a fantastic house for entertaining. Also worthy of note are the Lorimer library, the kitchen, the chalet room, the games room/bar and gymnasium. The work carried out in recent years was thorough in its extent and allows for an extremely comfortable arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms. From the A7 the house is approached through a splendid set of wrought iron gates by Robert Lorimer. A long tarmacadam drive ends in a gravel sweep at the front doorstop impressive stone steps lead up to the twin glazed front doors within a carved stone surround inscribed 1866 arch fan light over door and sliding out of the storm doorsOutbuildingsImmediately behind the house is the old icehouse (used as kennels) and lean-to buildings for storage. Set apart from the house is the former walled garden which now houses a 45m x 19m all-weather riding arena equipped with dressage mirrors and viewing area. Adjacent to it are a range of four timber loose boxes with concrete apron, feed room and fully equipped tack room. A walk-way/ramp leads from the stable down to a lorry/horse box park, covered horse walker and muck pit. Within the walls of the garden are a number of storerooms/stables, a wash box with heat lamps and aviary/dovecote. Gardens and GroundsThe gardens and grounds surrounding Glenmayne provide an attractive, sheltered and mature setting for the house. To the south of the drive are a number of specimen trees including a wonderful monkey puzzle. Wide sweeping, well-maintained lawns (which facilitate the use of a helicopter) continue to the south of the house where there are two formidable stone lions, a sundial and a “turtle fountain” which the current owners based on the “Fontana delle Tataruaghe” which is located in Piazza Mattei in the Sant'Angelo district of Rome. On the west of the house, reached by means of a short terrace and balustraded stone steps from French windows in the gilt room, is a wonderful, terraced seating area and pagoda. Here are further lawns and an Italian garden nearby with its own ponds, rockery and waterfall. To the west and the south of the house are four grazing products, each with their own water supply and which, together with the garden, extend to about 30 acres.
