Sherry FitzGerald Fogarty take great pleasure in presenting this beautiful property to the market. A truly impressive and elegant family home surrounded by mature, private gardens just to the edge of Clareen village. Built in 1995, this house has a floor area of approx. 277 sq. mts/2,981 sq. ft. and is a superbly appointed and deeply comfortable country house featuring space, light, a bespoke kitchen, a master suite, and an interconnecting but completely independent two bedroomed living unit/granny flat. The current owners have taken great care of their beautiful home, consistently improving it as well as adding the large granny flat in 2001 and the stunning garden room in 2008. Decor throughout the house is simply perfect and accommodation lists as follows;
A pillared entrance porch leads to an elegant entrance hall with a gallery effect at first floor level. Reception rooms have perfect proportions and lovely views of the surrounding gardens and countryside. They capture the picture views and the garden room with its French doors give access to the sun drenched rear patio area. There is a very generous and superbly-appointed kitchen with dream units and a garden room off. The essential utility room is to one side. The home office is so ideal with plenty of power points, shelving and a high speed E Fibre Broadband connection.
There are three additional bedrooms at first floor level, one with a large luxury en-suite, and a family bathroom. The gallery effect landing features a reading area. A true master suite has a walk through dressing room and a stunning en-suite bathroom all newly fitted out. There is also an attic room at the very top of the house ideal and prepared for storage, it was once used as an office space and it is accessed by a Stira attic stairs from the landing.
The accommodation bonus is a self-contained guest bedroom wing/granny flat, or indeed home consultation rooms with their own separate front entrance, but connecting to the main house. Accommodation comprises a large kitchen cum/living room, two double bedrooms, a bathroom. As the unit is independently heated with its own oil boiler and as it has a separately metered ESB supply it has many possible uses including a home rental income of approx. €600 per month.
Overall, the house has been practically and cleverly designed, giving it a timeless classic aspect, but offering every contemporary amenity for how we can best live today. The location is excellent with the best of all worlds locally. Birr is 8kms, Roscrea cc kms, Tullamore 33 kms. Dublin is an hour and a half away and Limerick City including University of Limerick & the Regional Hospital are just fifty minutes' drive from your door. Educational options for children are some of the best with a highly regarded primary school in the Village, as well as many secondary options including St Brendan's Community School Birr, Colaiste Phobal Roscrea, the renowned Cistercian College with day boarding options offered, the Ursuline Convent, Thurles and the Presentation Convent Thurles.
