Dan & Petra - Dan and Petra D'Agostino of Carefree, Arizona are the owners of Duncraig Manor as of 2024. They bought Duncraig last year because Petra just fell in love with the aura and mystique of the Manor. Her vision for the property is delightful and whimsical. She just wants the place to be a happy, fun place, where people can come and really feel loved and wanted, relaxed and rejuvenated - and even inspired. Her goal is to make Duncraig Manor a destination in itself; to create an event space that is unique and irresistible. She envisions events like dinner theater - Murder Mysteries, and other period plays and musical concerts. Her vision - a place where beautiful violin and cello players can be seen and heard in the English garden spaces, just as it might have been 100 years ago. What fun!

Dan loves to cook and celebrate life with fine food, family, and quality everything! He is an icon in the audio world, an inventor and owner of Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems, LLC of Carefree, Arizona. Dan's systems are world renowned. They specialize in designing and manufacturing the best sounding audio electronics for home stereo and home theater systems.
