Situated on a 19-acre peninsula on the banks of the pristine Wye River, this Georgian-style Residence is constructed of handmade bricks and is adorned with custom Palladian windows, French doors, and authentic handmade English chimneys. The residence was originally constructed for Mario Boiardi, sole heir to the Boiardi Estate, whose father was known as Chef Boyardee. Designed after William Paca's Wye Hall Manor, the waterfront Residence stands among an abundance of gorgeous trees, beautiful meadows, colorful formal gardens, magnificent courtyards, wandering wildlife, and breath-taking panoramic views from the mile-long shoreline.
The colossal grounds and the impressive 22,500 square foot Residence make Pendryn perfect for any social affair: from intimate gatherings of a few friends to enormous celebrations for 800 invited guests. Bring the whole family, as the 8 bedrooms (most with a private balcony), 9 full baths, and 3 half-baths, afford extraordinary privacy in dazzling surroundings, while the numerous separate living/loving/laughing rooms offer the opportunity to gather or seek solitude. The 22-seat formal dining room guarantees a space at the table for everyone at big holiday meals.
Despite its opulence, the home has a warm and inviting atmosphere with an astonishingly cozy feel. Ottomans throughout beg to put your feet up, and just relax. You will know you have come home the moment you step through the door.
Upon entering through the enormous front door, you find yourself standing in a grand marble foyer looking down a 60-foot long arched marble hall lined with urns and sculptured busts. As you wander about the Residence noticing all of the Georgian-style detail, you will discover gigantic windows that let in a bounty of natural light, and water views from every room. In total, there are 11 fireplaces, the front of which are antique pieces collected from country homes in England. The fireplace in the family room however, was obtained from a 16th-century French monastery. The conservatory includes a hand-painted trompe l'oeil Coyne vaulted ceiling, genuine Chinese silk wall-coverings, 17th-century French limestone fireplace, and an 18th-century signed Perry of London crystal chandelier. This comfortable elegance does not end in the conservatory: you will find it all throughout the Residence, from the drawing room to the billiards room.
The 8 private bedrooms have ample space for the entire family and are adorned with luxurious bedding. Two rooms have a king-size bed, four have a queen-sized bed, and two rooms have two twin-sized beds. And each bedroom also has its own full bathroom. Your guests are sure to get plenty of restful sleep. The master bedroom has a separate reading area, as well as an extravagant master bathroom.
The outdoor area not only has wonderful gardens and courtyards, there is also a massive pool (with poolhouse) and a gigantic patio to relax in the sun, host a cocktail hour, or just take in the views. From Penderyn you can take a kayak tour of the Wye River and the Wye Narrows, charter a boat and cruise the Chesapeake Bay or take a fishing trip. Pendryn has a gorgeous 157-foot Bailey dock with 11 slips. Your outdoor opportunities are limitless.
Penderyn is now available for the 2013 holiday season decorated throughout, perfect to host your family gatherings. There will be ample Christmas trees to host your gifts for family, only to be unwrapped by one of the eleven woodburning fireplaces that will burn around the clock.
Whether you choose to come to Pendryn by driving your car down the long winding driveway or docking your boat in one of the slips, one thing is certain: you, your friends, and your family are about to immerse yourself in an experience like no other. Pendryn has touched many lives, and now it touches yours. Welcome!
We travel quite a bit and love this home. We only wish we could use it more than we do.
After selling our last home on the shore we fell in love with this one. It is the ultimate home for our family gatherings.
