Room for the horses outside at Ballynagall House

At 3,600 sq ft, plus three stables, and other outbuildings, there’s nothing little about this refurbished Georgian pile

 

When the Rubberbandits offered to take their sweethearts up to Mullingar, as their epic love song Horse Outside came to its crescendo, I have a feeling they were thinking of something slightly less salubrious than Ballynagall Little. In fact, at approximately 3,600 sq ft, plus three stables (for the horses outside), and other outbuildings, there’s nothing little about this refurbished Georgian country house.

Inside, it’s a mixture of Georgian, early Victorian, and the mod cons that contemporary refurbishments bring – so there’s an Aga (to be negotiated for separately) and Belfast sink in the kitchen, but there are also decent showers, broadband and underfloor heating on the ground floor.

Two of the bedrooms, both ensuite, are on the ground floor, along with a drawing room, dining room, sun room, sitting room, office and kitchen. Upstairs – you have a choice of front or back stairs – there are three further bedrooms.

For sale at €610,000 through Savill’s, Ballynagall Little is a lovely family home, or the perfect country retreat for those who can afford such things, and who love country pursuits. You get a privacy, a sweeping drive, vegetable garden, and paddocks. Castlepollard is just 5.4km away, and Mullingar is 25.7km, both of which have schools to choose from. You’re handy for golf, horse racing at Kilbeggan, fishing and lovely walks at Mullagmeen Forest park. Garden enthusiasts will enjoy Lord Longford’s nearby Tullynally Castle, which opens during summer.
