DescriptionMount Ullard was bought by the present owners c.2006 who have since carried out a full refurbishment sympathetic to the initial design, retaining where possible the original features and character of the property. Believed to date from the late eighteenth century, Mount Ullard is a listed property facing south to the Blackstairs Mountains and the river Barrow. Delightfully tucked away down its own drive the house gets the sun all day offering new owners wonderful privacy and solitude.
As it stands, the imposing ‘L’ shaped building extending to approximately 3,490 sq. ft. and is constructed of stone under a slate roof. The property offers a very workable layout of three floors over basement (yet to be renovated).
The gardens at Mount Ullard are a credit to the current owners. Extending to approx. 0.91 ha (2.24 acres), the mature planting found throughout the grounds offers a colourful montage over the course of the year from a sea of bluebells in spring, to the colourful assortment of roses in summer, apple and pear trees in autumn and silver birch glistening in the winter sun.
Effortlessly blending into the ancient wall gardens the mature array of plants, shrubs and trees are not much older than 10 years. Of course kudos to the current owners whose imagination and creativity has conceived beautiful rockeries, home to cascading plants and purposely placed benches offer tranquillity and serenity whilst enjoying this peaceful space.
The once overgrown briars and land have been transformed, reminiscent of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s ‘The Secret Garden’ - An idyllic place where children and adults of all ages will enjoy exploring for years to come.
AccommodationInternally the accommodation is accessed through an impressive front door opening into the entrance hall. Continuing further is the rear hall currently used as the everyday entrance to the house but could be reconfigured into a utility / boot room. A utility room is to the right and could be easily converted in to a family sitting room. A wc is also on this level. The inner hall offers access to a large drawing room / kitchen area with views across the verdant countryside. The specially commissioned rounded staircase similar to the original design leads to the first floor, with 2 bathrooms and a study. The two main bedrooms offer dual aspect views to the River Barrow and across to the striking backdrop of Mount Leinster. The annex offers a further bedroom with the back stairs leading to a playroom. Upstairs again are 2 further bathrooms and a library, there is a possibility of 3 bedrooms however one is currently used a second office
