The Green Sitting Room
As you enter the main hall the first of Coolclogher’s comfortable sitting rooms is to your right. The walls are painted a historic library green colour and the open fireplace is in original red antique Kilkenny marble, with a large gilt over mantle. The original wood polished floor, beautifully maintained, with a large Oriental rug and a large sofa upholstered in gold fabric and various easy chairs.
There’s a mahogany games table, a secretare and a round card table in front of a window; a TV and VCR are in a mahogany cabinet. The triple aspect arched windows face the extensive grounds and the mountains beyond the property. As elsewhere in the house, there are no window coverings, just beautifully crafted mouldings painted a historic white.
