Hume Auctioneers- We Get The Pick Of The Crop Boasting massive accommodation this stunning 4-bedroom detached residence sits on a magnificent site of almost one acre and includes extensive sheds and garages even including a home bar. Enjoying an unrivalled location in a most sought-after part of this prestigious Heritage town, this modern home offers all the convenience of town living with all the outdoor space of a country house. Step inside the front door and immediately the sheer space is palpable. The welcoming entrance hall with its picture windows and panelled walls announces a home of true distinction. The open plan kitchen living room is appointed to the highest standards and enjoys a bespoke fitted kitchen, attractive island unit and solid fuel stove set into a beautiful brick inglenook style fireplace. A pitched ceiling adds to the great feeling of space. Off the kitchen is a large conservatory which enjoys panoramic views of the surrounding countryside right across county Laois and as the name Mountain View suggests one can see as far as the Sliabh Bloom mountains from this relaxing and elevated point. To the rear of the Kitchen is a useful back hall together with utility room and guest WC. Patio doors lead to the gardens. Take the corridor to the relaxing quarter and the space one again is immense. A massive sitting room with two picture windows once gain enjoys the wonderful view. This room incorporates a relaxing sitting room and a formal dining room and is adorned with solid timber floors, a feature marbleised slate fireplace and is once again set off by a superb pitched ceiling. There are four double bedrooms. Three enjoy walk-in wardrobes and ensuites whilst the fourth is still a generous double. A fully tiled bathroom complete with jacuzzi bath concludes the ground floor accommodation. Outside the house is truly spectacular. The stone wall, wrought iron gates and beautiful multi-level water feature set the tone for a home of many quality features. The site of almost one acre is beautifully private and incorporates sheds, garages, garden, polytunnel and vegetable plots, lawns and even a full-sized pub complete with mahogany bar and full-sized championship snooker table. Every part of the garden is peacefully private and has an air of a country home, yet step outside the gate and schools, shops, pubs, restaurants, playgrounds and all amenities are just a gentle stroll away. Primary schools are amongst the best in the county whilst a bus service brings children safely to Heywood Community College; regarded as one of the best secondary schools in the entire region. Sports and recreation facilities are all on hand. Abbeyleix is famed for its excellent food and drink outlets with Morrissey's Pub and Mueller & O'Connell bakery amongst the best in all of Ireland. A stunning heritage town, Abbeyleix boasts exceptional architecture and a spirit seldom equalled in todays bustling society. Such a spirit can only be heightened by the recent announcement that Stripe Billionaire; John Collison has purchased the 1000 acre De Vesci Estate and country home for over €10,000,000. A source close to the transaction said that he has expressed an interest in acting as a "custodian" for the property and its estate and regenerating its historic woodlands. Wonderful news for the future of this truly special town. Mountain view is a truly spectacular home which has been lovingly crafted by its current owners over many years and needs to be viewed to be appreciated. Full room details to follow.
