Approached through imposing pillared gates via a long (1km) avenue of magnificent beech trees and post and railed parkland, the Manor House faces east with fine views over its own Park, with glimpses of the sea in the distance and impressive views of Croghan Mountain to the North.
The house is entered via rising granite steps leading through an Entrance Porch to the stately Reception Hall with its limestone flagged floor and pillared arch to the spacious inner/stairs Hall with elegant wide staircase rising to the upper floor. All the main Reception Rooms radiate off this level starting with the elegant Drawing Room, a delightful bow ended room with arched recesses and delicate marble mantel piece, on the other side of the Reception Hall the spacious Dining Room. The superbly fitted Kitchen/Dining/Family Room is a particular feature with polished timber floor, exposed timber beamed ceiling, fitted wall and floor units and a matching pair of two oven oil fired Alpha cookers. There is also a central island with Belfast sink and a specially designed feature fridge/freezer and general storage unit, plus an adjoining Butler's Pantry.
Central to this space is the Dining and Family Area with its raised open fire place with beamed mantel. The Family Area leads to a secondary stairs Hall which in turn opens to the Library Room of great character with imposing chimney-piece and walls lined with fitted open bookshelves and cupboards. A large pair of double doors open to the spacious Sun Room which in turn opens to the south and west facing gardens with their expansive terraces and lawns.
