The house is called Tyrconnell and was built first in 1826 and then rebuilt in 1924. The house has nine full bathrooms, ten bedrooms and eleven fireplaces.
I think that when you have this kind of kitchen, you should also have a scullery maid. I wish my copper pots and pans were this shiny, but since I actually use them, they aren’t.
It’s interesting that the kitchen isn’t super modern. If I had this much storage space, you KNOW that I would have enough sets of china and glassware to fill every cupboard! Also, why is there a ladder in the corner of the kitchen??? Does it go all the way around for access to the top cabinets? Hmmmm.
This house is known for its formal gardens, and you can see how beautiful it will be in the spring… Here’s what a House & Garden Pilgrimage had to say about the gardens:
Tyrconnell has 26 acres of gardens, landscaped in the 1920s by the noted Philadelphia landscape architect, Arthur Folsom Paul, are set amongst flowering specimens and mature native trees. A boxwood bordered entrance court, a patio with a west vista overlooking Lake Roland, and a terraced parterre garden surround the house. The noted north allee, modeled on the Italian Renaissance garden at Villa d’Este, features a magnificent central axis intersected by terraces and culminating in an exuberant fountain. The house, built in 1826 for John O’Donnell, was expanded in 1919 by the Baltimore firm of Mottu and White in the Colonial Revival style and is now listed on the National Register.
