Set in the Garden County’s rolling hills, this pretty country house offers over 577.75sq.m / 6,219sq.ft living space . Superbly proportioned rooms lend grace and elegance, with the principal orientation designed to maximise the panoramic views down the valley to the Sugarloaf Mountain and out over the Irish Sea. Lots of design features are incorporated – from the custom kitchen to stylish luxury bathroom suites – but, if first impressions really count, the reception hall with its dramatic staircase, gallery, and welcoming open fireplace set the tone for what follows.
Hexagonal drawingroom with vaulted ceiling and panoramic windows.
Another major attraction is the detached leisure suite (some c. 175sq.m / 1,883sq.ft) which will register a decent score with growing teenagers / young adults; complete with its own heating system and a high level of detail finish.
A dream location for hill-walkers, Kilgear House appeals also to those keen on country life, equestrian pursuits etc; with Roundwood Lakes a short drive away, and shore-angling off several nearby east coast beaches.
