This superbly located and situated property was built in 1791 and is typical of rectories built around this time. It retains many of it’s original features such as timber sash windows and surrounds, original coving and fireplaces in situ with it’s manageable and well appointed accommodation spread out over three floors over basement. It is situated on beautiful mature, private landscaped gardens of 1.16 acres with a lovely courtyard to the rear with a range of cut stone outbuildings.

Set in a lovely rural setting, with scenery to the front of Slievenamon, and behind of the distant Galtees, it is very private and secluded within it’s garden.

The Rectory is a pretty and elegant house of a manageable size with accommodation comprising of two large reception rooms, kitchen and cloakroom on the ground floor, and a large basement with the old kitchen. Upstairs there is a large long bathroom with views of the garden on the return and courtyard, with four good size bedrooms around the landing, including a guest room with a small en-suite. Large stairs go up to the attic area with one large attic bedroom and a further attic room (bedroom 6 if desired) at either side of a landing.

The property has been kept well, with original fireplaces throughout including the bedrooms. There is a large enclosed courtyard with original outbuildings to the rear and a small conservatory next to the kitchen with a little seating area. The beautiful garden consists of lawns and woodland, with mature copper beech, oak, ash and sycamore trees. It includes species shrubs, spring bulbs and an old mulberry tree and there is also a productive “brown turkey” fig tree, a fruit garden, and rose beds.

The 1.16 acres wraps around the house, with a large enclosed courtyard with a beautiful array of outbuildings to the rear, some of which are lofted with a slate roof. The gardens of this exquisite home have to be seen to truly appreciated with numerous specimen trees and shrubs contained therein, enjoying superb views of Slievenamon mountain and the surrounding countryside.

Due to its uniqueness, it is a protected structure. The property is in need of repair and modernisation. It is located circa 4 miles north of Clonmel towards Cashel/Cahir.
