Kilquade Hill House, set within approx. five acres of mature gardens designed by award-winning landscapers, is an impressive country house in turnkey condition throughout. The house enjoys an accessible yet tranquil location whose elevated position offers delightful vistas over the surrounding countryside and outstanding sea views. Believed to date from Circa. 1820 in classical Georgian style, the property was subject to a complete three-year build creating a manageable sporting estate. The result is an exceptionally comfortable and attractive home, where attention to design, detail and quality, has been paramount. Maintaining the elegant proportions, grandeur and symmetry of the Georgian era the vendor, reconfigured, and built anew the interior, seamlessly pairing classical styling with contemporary design, thereby creating a much more functional and open space totalling approx 390 Sq.m or 4,199 Sq.ft.. Superior quality materials are evident throughout, as well as many bespoke features and specialist finishes executed by craftsmen drawn from around Europe. With the exception of the reception hall and the bathrooms the whole house features oak flooring. Also worth noting, there are triple glazed windows which are draught free, energy efficient and soundproof the house. The house is entered through a stone portico and front door which opens to an impressive entrance hall with marble flooring. A feeling of harmonious proportion and balance is achieved in the entrance hall by four symmetrical doors and mirrored panels. The hall opens to the left into a formal drawing room featuring a fine bay window and to a library on the right featuring floor to ceiling fitted oak bookcases, with fireplaces in both rooms. The library, hall and drawing room open onto each other via sliding doors with wide openings thereby creating the feeling of continuous space in an enfilade design and a serene and elegant atmosphere. The entrance hall also leads into a dining room, a powder room and the kitchen via an inner hall. The spacious custom integrated kitchen is fitted with a full suite of top-quality appliances and leads to a boot/mud room with separate side entrance.

The conservatory is a luminous space featuring ten windows, double doors to a terraced area and the garden, a large skylight, a fireplace and hand painted wallpaper. This stunning room opens directly south onto a terrace perfect for al-fresco dining and entertaining. The conservatory can be accessed from the dining room and from the sitting room.
