Introducing Guilcagh Rectory a meticulously well-maintained 19th Century property. Designed by a well-known Irish architect. The rectory has been beautifully equipped for 21st Century living. Built in 1849, the property was designed by William Tinsley, a Tipperary architect responsible for several manor houses and churches who went on to design several universities in the US when he emigrated there after the famine.
Guilcagh Rectory is a labour of love that has evolved over time through the desire to create the epitome of luxurious family living with a perfect blend of timeless charm, modern elegance, sophistication, and comfort. This exceptional residence offers oil-fired central heating and is highly insulated throughout.
The rectory is a listed building which has preserved a huge number of its original features but was extensively renovated by its current owners in 2009. Offering c.2,700 sq ft of living space. Designed to match the nearby Guilcagh Church, the rectory preserved its original facade. Its front casement windows have been fitted with cast iron diamond panels and timber shutters.
The properties entrance is through an arch leading to the porch which has an arched doorway with its original door and decorative wrought iron hinges. Inside there's a large impressive hallway which has exposed stonework and a vaulted ceiling with reinstated original beams as well as a cut string staircase which leads up to a galleried landing. Rooms with exposed stonework include a large office and a library which both have fireplaces with a stove and shuttered window. A brick archway from the hallway leads to the kitchen, a huge room with solid oak units with teak worktops, a Belfast sink and a partially vaulted ceiling. Also at this level we have a sitting room with a cut stone fireplace as well as a utility room and bathroom with free standing bath. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, a shower room and an ensuite.
The property sits on an elevated c.0.5 acre site, with mature gardens, a gravel driveway and a paved courtyard to the rear. It also has three stone outbuildings, including a garage.
