Description

ABOUT

Hill House is a graciously proportioned family home which is beautifully presented with a mature fantastically maintained garden and useful outbuilding. The house has been refurbished to the highest standard over the last eight years by the present owners.

The property is approached through a walled and wrought iron railing entrance along a short drive to the front of the property. The reception rooms and bedrooms are bright with splendid views of the gardens and surrounding area including the scenic Rock of Cashel. The house has a south facing orientation and gives a true ambiance of peace.

The outbuildings in the yard incorporate the original stone coach house as well as other storerooms and a garage.


OUTSIDE

Enclosed private gardens on two levels which have been finished to a superb standard with lots of cut stone wall features, heather bed and a mature beech hedge. There is also a raised patio area to the rear of the garden with steps leading to the house.


THE YARDS

HISTORY

Georgian home constructed in 1710. During 1830’s and 1840’s Hill House was home to Rev. Dean James McDonnell who fought a campaign against landlordism and injustice during the Irish Famine. This priest entertained Daniel O’Connell, The Liberator, who held one of his Monster Rallies in Cashel in 1846 with the objective of repealing the Act of Union.
Between 1848 – 1883 Hill House was home to Honourable Martin Joseph French, who helped suppress the Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848 and the Fenian Rising in 1867.
Hill House has evidence of some windows being boarded up. This dates back to the Window Tax in the mid 1700’s when owners tried to reduce the number of windows and so reduce the tax!
