Kilodiernan House, thought to have been built circa 1820, sits in a secluded and private position within its impressive grounds. A handsome round headed door opening, flanked by Doric columns, leads through the doorway into the entrance hall. The dual-aspect drawing room and dining room both boast six-over-six large sliding sash windows, overlooking the lawns, and magnificent fireplaces. The drawing room has direct access to the south facing lawns via French doors.
Like the main reception rooms, the five bedrooms on the upper floor are also characterized by high ceilings. The focal point of the house is the homely kitchen with an aga, heating the heart of the home. The kitchen links with an informal sitting room, adjoined by a south facing conservatory.
A rear hall on the basement floor has a door to the courtyard and offers access to a cloakroom/ boot room and to the kitchen.
From the galleried landing, the spacious principal bedroom and dressing room have large windows overlooking the gardens. Victorian- esque in characteristic, the three further double bedrooms are accompanied with a corner sink. Each room enjoys a unique view of the mature grounds. The family bathroom is spacious, with a bath and shower.
Gardens and Grounds
The house is approached through an imposing stone walled entrance on to a sweeping drive, past paddocks, and woodland, that culminates in a gravel turning circle in front of the house. An adjacent courtyard and coach house have plenty of potential for the reinstatement of stabling for horses or converting into a fitness suite, home office or additional accommodation.
The grounds are a particular feature of the property, with an abundance of mature trees and roaming paddocks protected by a solid stone walled boundary, synonymous with the West of Ireland rural and upland landscape.
