Very rarely does a property of such character and history come to the market in Donegal, Whitehill House dates back to the early 19th Century with the layout remaining largely unchanged due to its listed and protected status, with many of the original features still in place, sash windows and shutters, stone slab flooring, hairpin gates, lime render finish, original fireplaces and cobble flooring to the outsheds.
The property sits on a wonderful 0.39 Hectare/ 0.96 Acres, with views of Lough Akibben, and set back against a plantation of trees and the derryveagh mountains forming as a backdrop to the NorthWest.
The Late Georgian residence dating back to circa 1820s, was primarily used as a residence and farm for the Marshal family, and is noted as being of regional importance in Donegal.
The internal layout is formal for the era with a dining room and drawing room at ground floor level, set either side of the entrance hallway and staircase with a store room to rear. The kitchen and scullery are located in a single storey extension to the rear with servant sleeping quarters located within part of the extension roof space, accessed via a ladder from the kitchen. Three bedrooms are located to the first floor, around the central stairway and landing. An outside toilet is still in place.
There are multiple vernacular style outsheds and barns in place on site, some previously utilised for the threshing and storage of grain and feed.
