Accessed via a stoned-pillared entrance, Killynure House, with its striking black and white faé§ade, is approached along a sweeping tree-lined avenue which opens out to a gravel forecourt at the front of the house and continues on to the equestrian facility, stables and paddock.

The entrance porch opens into an impressive hall with ornate plaster cornicing, a feature which is carried on throughout many other rooms of this fine property, and leads off to the drawing and dining rooms, each having bay windows and original fireplaces. The dining room extends to the breakfast room which is easily accessed by the kitchen. A large utility room gives access to a back staircase which leads to a spacious bedroom with ensuite facilities, a room which would have formerly been the maid€TM quarters. On the 1st floor are 4 other generous bedrooms and family bathroom, all with picturesque views overlooking the surrounding countryside. The property benefits from a downstairs shower room and integral garage.
