Impressive country house with a private situation
Dollardstown House is an imposing late-Georgian residence, part of which is believed to date back to circa 1640's and has been in the current family's ownership for nearly 50 years as a family home and in more recent years a successful B&B has been run from the property. More information can be found on: www.dollardstown.com.
The property is well set back from an idyllic country road, surrounded by mature gardens and numerous specimen trees giving great privacy on all sides. It is approached through stone piers with cast-iron gates and over hanging mature trees, which open to an attractive sweeping driveway leading to the front of the house with ample parking.
The accommodation is laid out over three floors and is of generous and elegant proportions. The interior boasts wonderful period features including corniced ceilings with centre roses, marble fireplaces, sash and case windows, shutters, architraves and mosaic floors. The main reception rooms are bright and spacious and arranged either side of the main hall.
The first-floor accommodation is spilt into two levels. The lower level comprises three large bedrooms, with a shared bathroom, the upper first floor level comprises three further bedrooms with en-suite facilities. All bedrooms include large windows with stunning views over the mature landscape. The second floor has recently been reroofed as well as rewired and comprises four bedrooms of generous proportions.
Situated to the rear of the house is a beautiful traditional stone farm building that is currently being used as storage. This building offers potential to be developed, subject to planning permission. There is a Dutch barn and ample hardstanding.
Dollardstown comprises about 12.89 acres of mature parkland with the primary planting including 200-year-old beech and lime trees. These trees have been complemented with more recent planting of beech, oak and lime which are now between 20-30 years old. This new generation of trees will ultimately replace the original 200-year-old planting scheme. Along with this new planting, several species of interest have been planted including Persian Ironwood, Caucasian Zelkova, Spanish Chestnut, Giant Sequoia and several pine and spruce species supplemented with an under storey of cherry laurel. All of the above provide for a peaceful habitat where wildlife prospers.
There are areas of lawn and grazing paddocks.
