Cherry Hill is a home for the discerning buyer. An impressive and clearly beautiful double fronted residence, with its distinctive cast iron balcony on three elevations, with canted bay windows, and ridge cresting roof detail.
Built in approx. 1910, this is without a doubt one of Roscrea s most important houses and a part of the towns heritage. The property is beautifully positioned to the edge of the town centre, on the Birr Road. It is very private and surrounded by approx. one acre of gardens with mature trees & shrubbery, as well as the original coach house to the rear.
Preserved with very many of its original fine features still in tact including, the high ceilings throughout with decorative plasterwork and ceiling roses, canted bay windows, original mosaic tiling, bespoke stained glass in many windows, a wide gracious staircase, and Art Deco fireplaces, renders this one of the most special properties in this region.
The gracious rooms with true exactness of internal proportions are in very good order, and are ready for a new owner to now put your touch to them. Overall the accommodation extends to approx. 274 sq. mts ( 2,950 sq. ft.), and is laid out as three reception rooms, four large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen as well as a utility room & guest WC.
Thoughtfully planned, Cherry Hill has a southerly orientation and the rooms of the house are filled with sun light throughout the day.
Outside there is an original coach house outbuilding, which is suitable for conversion to residential or commercial/business use. Most unusually this building is lined throughout with a brick interior, and it has an open plan space in the loft. Ideal as a home office away from the main house. E fibre Broadband is available in this location.
The garden behind the coach house was once home to a tennis court, a glass house and a vegetable garden. It is just a wonderful space for the avid gardener.
The location of Cherry Hill is excellent. It is just two minutes-drive from the town of Roscrea. Access to the M7 from Junction 22 is also five minute-drive from your front door. Dublin is an hour and a half away and Limerick City including University of Limerick, Northern Trust, & 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 wonderful train service to Dublin each day from Roscrea and both nearby Ballybrophy and Templemore Railway Stations have approx. eight options daily from 6.30 am to late each evening, providing great commuting options.
