Description

Tillyochie House is a classical Georgian country house which sits in a beautiful private setting within its own mature grounds. The accommodation is well presented throughout and while the original house is Georgian, it was subsequently extended in the Edwardian era to create additional living space.

The principal reception rooms sit off the main hall. The beautifully proportioned sitting room has south facing French doors and a further window with working shutters to the front of the house. There is an open fireplace with slate hearth and decorative marble mantelpiece. The dining room has original parquet flooring with windows offering lovely views. It has a traditional press and the butler’s pantry with fitted with units, a large storage cupboard and a sink.

The kitchen has three windows overlooking the gardens and is fitted with a range of units with solid wood work surfaces and a double sink. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge, and a four door AGA with two hobs and a separate double electric AGA oven. Off the kitchen is a study, a pantry, and a utility room with original Belfast double sinks, a large airing cupboard, fitted cabinets and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The family room has French doors and a fireplace with decorative wooden mantelpiece. There is a cloakroom with separate WC.

A staircase with decorative white painted iron balustrades and a wooden banister to half landing with family bathroom. The staircase continues up to the main landing with space for desk in the window. Off the landing there are four double bedrooms all of which have beautiful views. The bedroom to the rear of the house has French doors onto a balcony Adjacent to this is another bathroom.

Corridor to four bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom. Door to external stone staircase . This part of the house would lend itself to a self-contained guest annexe.

Gardens and Grounds

Tillyochie House sits in the centre of its own gardens and grounds which extend to about 14 acres.

The setting is particularly special with mature gardens and grounds surrounding the house which include paddocks, extensive outbuildings, high quality equestrian facilities and a tennis court. The grounds are enclosed by mature woodland giving it great privacy. A tarmac driveway passes through stone pillars sweeping up to the house where there is ample parking. The driveway loops around the house and also continues down to the stables.

The gardens at Tillyochie House are largely laid to lawn and interspersed with a range of mature broadleaf and coniferous trees, large shrubs including rhododendrons and a variety of well stocked flower beds. The principal garden sits east facing to the front of the house and in the corner is a secret garden with terraced flower beds, stone steps leading down and a greenhouse in the corner. There are further gardens to the rear of the house in which there is a summerhouse. In the north west corner is a hard surface tennis court.

Outbuildings

Tillyochie House has a superb range of outbuildings and equestrian facilities.

There is a former gardeners cottage to the rear of the house. This is brick built and comprises two connected rooms. The building has potential for conversion into a separate cottage, a home office or gym, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

Adjacent to the former cottage is a range of outbuildings which has four separate doors and is split into an office, an outside utility room and two store rooms, all with electricity and heating.

Equestrian Facilities

The equestrian facilities sit to the north of the main house. There is an extensive range of stabling set to the side of a large concrete yard. The stabling includes six large loose boxes with fitted rubber matting. There is also a large shed for garden machinery, a large tack room with a sink and a well ventilated hay / log store.

Beyond this is a Claydon horse walker. The riding ménage sits in the north east corner and is sheltered by mature pine trees. It is about 20m by 50m in size and has a shredded rubber surface. The paddocks are set around the gardens and enclosed by post and rail fences. The mature woodlands surrounding the grounds have also been split into separate paddocks to provide further sheltered grazing.

There is additional grazing land (about 8 acres) with a field shelter a short distance from the end of Tillyochie House’s drive which is available subject to separate negotiation.
