Get the run of the Mill House


CO CAVAN €625,000:SET ON 18 acres, the Mill House in Tullyvin, Co Cavan, is a 200-year-old country house that’s steeped in character and comes with a separate three-bedroom cottage.

The mill is long gone apart from an outhouse in the yard, but the stream is still flowing behind the house .

Substantial at 294 sq m (3,160sq ft), the Mill House has five bedrooms and is approached by two separate entrances, both leading onto a main avenue, which splits for the house and stable yard.

Knight Frank is asking €625,000 for the house which is located in Tullyvin, a small village with its own inn, shop and garden centre. Cootehill, the nearest town, is 6.4km away.

The house is laid out over three levels and the reception rooms have an air of cosy elegance. They include a drawing room, a dining room and a spacious family room.

Both the drawing room and the family room open to a raised terrace, which sits overlooking the mature garden, sheltered by many specimen trees.

The bedrooms are bright and airy, with high ceilings and country views, and the main bedroom is en suite.

At basement level, there’s a large utility, a playroom, a fifth bedroom and large store room, boot room and wine cellar.

The kitchen has the mainstay of many country houses – an oil-fired AGA cooker. Off the back hall, there is a guest toilet.

The yard is to the side of the house and there is a also sizeable cottage, with a large living room and three bedrooms.

Also in the yard, there are a total of seven stables in two separate blocks with associated feed and store rooms, a stone building with dog run, double garage and boiler house.

To the rear of the yard, there is a mature vegetable garden .

The lands are mainly to the front and both sides of the house and are divided into four separate paddocks, all in grass.
