This magnificent period residence has been sensitively restored to its former glory, in a rustic setting in Woodlawn, Ballinasloe.

Killaan House, which sits on around two acres, was built by Baron Ashtown of the Trench Family in 1852 as a ‘double steward house’ on the Woodlawn House Estate.

The property has been tastefully and sensitively restored and renovated in meticulous detail by its present owners.

It boasts all of the grandeur and charm of early Victorian architectural features which have all been retained, including magnificent high corniced decorated ceilings with chandeliers, staircases and large windows, which exude a palatial atmosphere throughout.

The pastoral sylvan setting offers views of the great Woodlawn House and the imposing adjacent 19th century church, with its imposing spire greatly enhancing the appeal of this elegant property.

While being a mere five-minute walk to Woodlawn Railway Station (Dublin/Galway Line) and a 12km drive to the M6 motorway, the situation is one of a quiet country equestrian retreat with its stables and post-and-rail paddocks.

The accommodation includes kitchen, utility, hallway, dining room, drawing room, three bedrooms, study/office, guest toilet and bathroom. There are also stables and outhouses, with an attractive partly-restored stone ruin to the rear.

Selling agent Martin Shaughnessy said: “This residence must be viewed to experience the many unique old world features combined with the modern facilities incorporated in the recent tasteful restoration and modernisation.”
