The Old Manse, Killearnan is a traditional former Free Church manse dating from 1847. The current owners bought The Old Manse in 1991 and since then have renovated the house including replacing and treating woodwork, re-wiring and up-dating the plumbing. Designed by Lachie Stewart of Anta Architecture, the kitchen extension was completed in 2010 and has provided a wonderful space for modern day family living, the use of natural materials combined with the high ceiling and long windows creating a bright and spacious room which blends well with the formality of a traditional manse. The back porch/boot room has been built in a similar style and gives generous space for the storage of outdoor clothing as well as a wood fuel store. The remaining ground floor accommodation is comfortable and spacious, while on the first floor the main bedrooms lie to the front of the house and the former maids’ bedrooms lie to the rear of the house, accessed by the back stairs.

The Old Manse is approached off the single track public road, a gateway opening to a gravel driveway leading to a parking area in front of the house.

The grounds at The Old Manse extend to approximately 2 acres. The garden surrounds the house and is laid mainly to lawn, fringed by mature trees providing exceptional privacy and shelter and including some magnificent Limes and specimen conifers dating back to the turn of the last century.
