Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Trumland House stands in grounds extending to some 44 acres (18 hectares) and is approached by a gated and pillared entrance next to the Gate Lodge with a sweeping hard core track. It enjoys superb sea views to the south west and south east. The house requires significant refurbishment having been badly damaged by a fire in 1985. The house is wind and water tight and the refurbishment programme is well under way with the house having been re-roofed, a new attic floor being installed and timbers replaced where required. Windows and rainwater goods have been reconditioned and renewed.

Following completion of the refurbishment project, Trumland offers great potential as a superb family residence, or alternatively, subject to the necessary planning and other consents, perhaps as a small hotel. The floor plans indicate the likely accommodation on completion of the restoration.

To the front (south) of the house are beautiful terraced lawns and a short distance to the rear is a well maintained walled garden with greenhouse and stone built potting and storage sheds. The walled gardens are colourful and well laid out and are open to visitors. The land surrounding the house includes grassland areas, together with policy woodlands of predominantly sycamore and ash with some laburnum and rhododendrons, which provide a particularly attractive feature.

There was at one time a private 9 hole golf course in the grounds and this feature could be restored.

Trumland was historically used as an upland sporting and farming estate. The land extends in all to some 1,746 acres (707 hectares or thereby) and in addition there is a 50% pro-indiviso share of Hullion Hill which extends to approximately 197 acres (80 hectares or thereby).
