Savills are delighted to present Mullenkiegh House, a delightful small Georgian house on wonderful mature grounds, with excellent equestrian facilities all of which is set within its own 4.45 ha / 11 acres and bounded by the Ballyfinboy River.Dating from the 17th Century and benefiting from recent upgrade works, this fine home is idyllically position on the edge of the quaint village of Cloughjordan in the heart of lush North Tipperary.

There is an attractive entrance and a graveled drive way leads to the front of the house, the courtyard and to the stable yard at the rear. The house sits prettily framed by mature beach trees and a stone wall along the road side. The gardens are to the front and side of the house with an expensive lawn interspersed with mature trees. Directly accessed from the half door in the kitchen is the sheltered suntrap patio which is within the courtyard. This is a delightful spot to enjoy the tranquillity of Mullenkiegh however without a feeling of isolation, being on the edge of the village.

The bright accommodation is laid out over three floors and boasts many original features; the kitchen retains the original bread ovens which are recessed into the deep stone walls, the dining room also has a feature stone wall and cosy window seat; the 2nd floor bedrooms have high apex ceilings with exposed beams and this is to name but a few. Every window in the house has a view, whether it is over the front lawn, the adjoining paddocks and countryside beyond.

Within the courtyard, the former piggery buildings have been converted in a large studio space currently used as an antiques show room, but ideal for many purposes, subject to the correct planning permission. It is easily upgraded to residential space and it would make a fantastic 2/3 bedroom cottage, alternatively, it could be used as a studio, office or entertainment / party room. The main house was reroofed circa 15 years ago and the front windows were restored 3 years ago, more recently a new boiler was installed, the heating system upgraded and zoned. The studio / antiques show room was also reroofed and fitted with electrics, new windows and floors.
