Tomany House is a wonderful Victorian era farmhouse standing on 3 acres of gardens close to the historical East Galway village of Abbey. The house was built circa 1850 and has been maintained in quite good condition retaining many of its original features while at the same time adding some comforts necessary for modern day living. While this property is in good condition there will always be ongoing maintenance required with buildings of this vintage. Note that it is not a listed building.
The house is charmingly old fashioned with the front door opening directly into the living room with its 10 foot ceilings and stone and brick built open fireplace complete with a crane. A solid fuel stove has been added offering a more efficient heating source for the room. All the interior doors and architraves are original and many of the original sliding sash windows have been replaced with good quality teak sliding sash windows. The original window shutters have also been retained. All the ground floor rooms have suspended wooden floors. Oil fired central heating has been added.
To the left of the living room is a spacious sitting room which also has a solid fuel stove added to the original open fire-place. This is a bright generous room retaining its original ceiling cornicing. On the left of the living room is the kitchen / breakfast room which also has a small open fireplace, some free standing pine furniture and a Belfast sink as well as a large gas cooker.
The staircase leads directly from the living room to a large landing on the first floor. The original layout of the first floor appears to have accommodated a large bedroom on either side of a huge landing but alterations have been made and the first floor now has one large bedroom, two smaller bedrooms and a spacious bathroom as well as a hot press and storage space.
The front garden is lawned with some trees while a large paddock to the left is used for grazing by a local farmer. There is a small orchard to the right and a sunken courtyard to the rear of the house. There are many fine mature trees on the perimeter of the property giving great privacy. The property is connected to mains electricity, a private deep bored well and a septic tank on site. A garden shed has been built in the courtyard and there is an old stone farm building at the rear of the property with a modern lean-to for machinery storage.
