Tully Lodge, Carrick- Shannon, Kilmore, County Roscommon , N41 D280
Tully Lodge is an 8 Bedroom Regency Period Residence on just over 16 Acres. This impressive residence is set in mature parkland creating the most amazing setting that only 200 years could create. From the Gate House at the main gate you travel c.200 meters along a winding treelined main drive to the residence where one will note the Regency features are immediately apparent. The outer foyer is formal and leads to the central foyer and stair hall. Off this are two very large reception rooms of a style and scale that is essential to a proper period residence. Also, on the ground floor are two bedrooms and a large dual aspect kitchen plus some service rooms. Upstairs there are 6 more bedrooms and a Study. These have a suitable scale with high ceilings, shuttered windows, most with ensuites. The stair hall and the first-floor landing are very notable with vaulted ceilings and scrolled balustrade. To the North East and adjoining the Residence is an enclosed Courtyard with outbuildings on the opposing side. These are in need of repair but provide a basis for the restoration of an impressive space. We believe that Tully Lodge was first completed to its current configuration around 1830. It would have been the seat for a much larger holding including tenanted farms. The old stable yard which stands away from the residence is of significant scale and point to that history and size. For buyers with an equestrian requirement, there is an opportunity to restore all or parts of this complex. In 1989, Tully Lodge benefited from significant renovations and improvements. At that time, the roof was replaced, mechanical systems were upgraded and 7 new bathrooms were installed, in the process dealing with some big-ticket items. Now the property is in need of some more TLC. With a kind and sympathetic hand, the new owner has an excellent opportunity to restore Tully Lodge to its former glory. Tully Lodge is located near the village of Kilmore, Co. Roscommon, just 10 minutes from Carrick on Shannon and just c.1.5km from the River Shannon.
