Tyrconnell, set amidst a splendid 22.5 acre English park including extensive formal & informal gardens evocative of great 18th century country houses is one of great estate properties of America’s east coast. Private & secluded, an estate drive through tall wrought iron gates opens to a circular motor court paved in river rock & enhanced with high stone walls. The all stone 10 bedroom Georgian estate house rises from encircling bluestone terraces with its high-pitched slate roof.
Although the original house was built in 1826, the home & extensive landscaping as it stands today are the result of an ambitious 1924 rebirth. A gracious Georgian entry portal leads to an intimate foyer which sweeps through a wide archway to the elegant reception hall with its low-rise staircase, paneled walls, fireplace, French doors & 13-foot ceiling, setting the tone for this most extraordinary home. Lavishly appointed rooms in high style, most with fireplaces radiate from the reception hall & gallery halls including mirror-image living room & dining room, library, sitting room & game room. Bright & sunny billiard room, solarium & kitchen complex complete the main level.
A Palladian window on the staircase floods the 2nd floor hall with sunlight. Private hall access to the master suite leads to the bedroom & sitting room, each with fireplace & views of Lake Roland. The master suite also features custom fitted walk-in closets & 2 baths. A library & 6 additional large en-suite bedrooms, 4 with fireplaces & 1 with glass enclosed porch finish the 2nd floor. An enormous attic level affords tremendous storage, 4 additional bedrooms & 3 baths. State-of-the-art systems include new 9-zone HVAC & 100 kilowatt emergency generator. Tucked away on a farm lane is a board & batten barn complex including a 3-bay tractor shed & corn crib. A Victorian 3 bedroom caretaker’s house adjoins an over-sized workshop with a 2nd level storage loft. Breathtaking grounds with sweeping lawns & majestic specimen trees, formal & informal gardens, bluestone terraces & fountains, quarter-mile allee with 3 fountains, stream with dam, pond & waterfalls, extensive LED landscape lighting. A once in a generation opportunity, this home affords unparalleled entertaining spaces, warm & welcome family living and irreplaceable grounds & vistas.
