Agent: Donnybrook Estate Agents
You can thank a catalogue of excellent period dramas from recent years, Downton Abbey for one springs to mind, for reigniting our love affair with the countryside and grand abodes from which to both enjoy its leisurely pursuits and while away the hours.
Heritage colours, coach house and gentleman’s residence inspired interiors, from upstairs and downstairs, have made their way out of country piles into exclusive stores, hotels, glossy magazines and then finally our living rooms.
But few will ever match the character, indeed romanticism, of Beech Meadow Farm - a six bedroom country estate at Killaloo, some six miles southeast of Derry. For this sublime property package offers something rather extraordinary that many will try to emulate but not even come close to equalling.
It’s a detached Georgian residence dating to 1780 before being extended in 1810 and restored in 2016. A living and breathing example of antiquity that’s perfectly primed for modern living, it’s now waiting for a lucky family to come and embark on their very own chapter in this story called life.
And as they do so, they’ll find a truly inspirational setting here at Beech Meadow Farm.
Nestled on beautiful grounds of some three acres, a winding driveway will lead you to the stunning stone facade of the main house - you might even spot a dappled deer, or two, and of course elegant pheasant.
Grounds are abundant, varied and immaculately presented. You’ll also enjoy a range of timber-sided outbuildings including a two-car carport, a workshop/garden store, fuel store and dog run. Extensive parking is also available in the paved courtyard.
You’ll feel quite the squire before even setting foot inside the main residence where an equally rich welcome awaits. Look forward to high ceilings, grand fireplaces, authentic wood panelled walls, beautiful windows and flooring alongside intricate design flairs throughout. Even the most ardent design enthusiast is sure to be impressed by Beech Meadow Farm.
Enjoy a Scandi inspired family living/dining room and of course cooking will become a pleasure not a chore in the traditional English style kitchen.
Of course the best country piles also come with a drawing room, library and boot room. And Beech Meadow Farm is no exception. Take the dogs for good walk, kick off your Hunter wellies and hang up your Barbour jacket before retreating to the library for a brandy and good read in exceptional peace and quiet.
Let former dreams become your new reality here at Beech Meadow Farm.
But remember that this residence is equally practical and versatile with spacious bedrooms and a bright and airy basement apartment which could be utilised in many ways.
The possibilities are varied and endless with this truly unique property package.
