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. 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.

From the M9 motorway to Waterford, take the road to Bagenalstown on the left hand side beyond Carlow. From Bagenalstown, go to Borris, at Borris beyond the garage go right and then left to Graignamanagh. Two miles beyond the Barrow Bridge take the small road left marked Ullard which will bring you past an ancient church. Just a little further on past several bungalows is a black metal gate between two pillars beside a bungalow. The entrance gate to the house which is hidden from the road is a couple of hundred years downhill from there.
