Property Description

Historic Irish country residence set in c. 5 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland with impressive stone cut courtyard buildings.
This unique manor house originally dates from the mid 17th century with an original early 1700 s Georgian house having a substantial elegant Victorian addition in the 1860 s.
The vast accommodation extends to 649.72sq.m/6994sq.ft approx.
The house is accessed through a wall and gated entrance with a sweeping oak tree bordered driveway leading to an impressive granite stepped entrance portico and an unusual elliptical fanlight.
The large entrance hall with pristine ceiling plasterwork and beautifully polished wooden floors leads to an elegant drawing room with an original marble fireplace and to a formal dining room with original fireplace. The entrance hall leads from the Victorian period directly to the Georgian and In a few short steps one moves back 150 years to an early Georgian period property complete with an original staircase and the classical lug doors of the period. The kitchen including a cast iron range cooker and a sitting/reading room with a Kilkenny limestone fireplace, a shower room and bathroom complete the downstairs accommodation.
Upstairs there are six bedrooms and a very large landing and a house bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are en-suite.

The formal gardens are well maintained with mature trees, shrubs and a large lawned area. There is a large fenced paddock area to the rear with a mill stream running through it and the original 18th century well.
