Life has changed. With the changes, a need has come to find sanctuary in our homes. This magnificent family residence set amidst exquisite mature landscaped gardens is the perfect sanctuary.
Celebrating a splendid design with immense foresight, this property has always been regarded as one of the signature properties on Portlaoise and the perfection that was conceived decades ago now presents itself onto the market as a mature masterpiece in fine living.
Almost hidden on a beautiful country lane bordering Portlaoise, the property is approached via a pair of beautiful antique gates and along a tree lined driveway. The house immediately impresses as you approach. A two storey double fronted home with a substantial and tasteful annex, the property announces itself as a prestigious home of distinction.
Step inside the impressive hallway and the handcrafted finishes immediately confirm this is a residence of great taste, impeccable design and quality craftsmanship. Each door has been individually created for this home as too have the handmade staircase and balustrades, and all combine to create a unique and once off home.
To the right of the hallway is a cosy and relaxing family room ideal for watching tv or unwinding in peace. With a picture window and open fireplace this room is perfectly enjoyable throughout the year
To the left of the hall is the large drawing room; the huge space is so impressive. This L shaped reception room is perfect for entertaining on the grand scale. The French doors and picture windows are complimented by the marble fireplace and the high coved ceilings. This room is peaceful and timeless.
A door leads to the beautiful kitchen. Once again excellent craftsmanship is on display. An extensive handmade kitchen wraps around this room with an array of presses and cupboards ensuring enough storage space for the needs of a growing family. The large dining space forms the centre of the room and presents as a perfect family space.
Off the kitchen is the annex hall which doubles as a most useful utility room. Fully plumbed and with further worktop space it is an ideal room to keep the fuss of family life away from the main rooms. This area also incorporates a fully appointed shower room to the front and leads to a cosy and inviting sunroom to the rear.
Off the hall is the first of two large garage spaces. The vendors have cleverly modified the first garage to become a large and perfect home office. With attractively panelled walls and good internet connection, the office is a great work from home space which benefits from being just outside the main rooms of the house.
Finally, a large and snuff dry garage now used as a storage room completes the extensive ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor the emphasis is on space. Four substantial double bedrooms offer perfect family living. Each room enjoys built-in wardrobes and large picture windows.
The master bedroom boasts picture windows, a large walk-in-wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom with full bath.
Everything is extremely tasty and respectfully minded.
