Laburnum House stands on approx. .206 of one hectare/.509 of one acre of beautiful elevated gardens over looking the town below. The house itself is a unique property situated in a peaceful, elevated and mature setting, just 5 minutes' walk from Roscrea town centre.
Ayr Hill is a quiet road and yet our new Primary Care Unit (currently under construction) and Dunnes Stores are just to the end of the road, approx. five minutes walk.
Built in 1975 the house floor area extends to approx.. 163 sq. mts/1754 sq. ft. The stone elevations and arched veranda give it a commanding and distinguished look. Surrounded by a half acre of gardens which were carefully and lovingly planned as well as being well cared for over the years. A cobbled driveway flanked by long established Laburnum trees on each side leads to the front stand with lawns, well-established shrubbery & a variety of plants.
Other mature trees and a shrubbery line the sides of the property and lead to the back lawn and trees that surround the house. There is so much already in place that would take a lifetime to create.
The current accommodation comprises;
Ground floor - entrance hallway, a large sitting room & dining room, a living room, a kitchen which includes a comfortable dining area overlooking the back garden, a utility room, and a useful ground floor shower room. There is also an external boiler room and an integrated carport adjoins the house, with covered parking and direct access from the house for two large cars.
First floor level - five large bedrooms, a family bathroom with hotpress and a separate WC. Some of the bedrooms could easily be converted to en suite bedrooms, if five bedrooms are not required.
The house is now presented as a blank canvas, with all fittings removed, and ready for the next owner to individualise the property to their taste and requirements. A genuine opportunity for those interested in customising their own family home, and the rewards will be substantial. It is also an opportunity to retro fit your house with future proofed services and lower running costs.
The location is excellent. Laburnum House is just five minutes-walk from the town of Roscrea. Access to the M7 from Junction 22 is also five minutes-drive from your front door. Dublin is an hour and a half away and Limerick City including University of Limerick & the Regional Hospital are just fifty minutes drive away.
Educational options for children are some of the best with a range of highly regarded primary schools nearby, as well as many secondary options including Colaiste Phobal locally, the renowned Cistercian College with day boarding options offered, the Ursuline Convent, Thurles and the Presentation Convent Thurles. There is a dedicated local daily bus service to and from these Thurles schools each day. Golf Clubs, tennis clubs, gyms, fishing on Lough Derg, hillwalking in the Slieve Blooms are all to hand. There is also a deeply convenient train service to Dublin each day from Roscrea, and both local stations Ballybrophy and Templemore Stations have approx. eight options daily from 6.30 am to late each evening, providing great commuting options.
Laburnum House is individual property that will equally suit a young, growing family or a family on the cusp of retirement who are looking to move away from city living.
