Cragmoher House is a fully modernised mid 19th century two storey, three bay, hipped roofed country residence standing on 1.32 hectares (3.25 acres approx) overlooking Cragmoher lake. The property comprises a period residence in a courtyard setting with an adjoining one bedroom guest ( Ghilllies) cottage, and a workshop ( The Dairy ) to the rear which would suit a number of uses including a large reception space or conversion into further accommodation. There are two additional two bedroom residential units, in the courtyard, being the renovated Stables and the Coach house . Cragmoher is 2.2km from Corofin village which is on the edge of the Burren in north Clare. The village has all the local amenities one would expect including shops, pubs and a the local national school. In the opposite direction it is only 15 mins (12km) to the centre of Ennis town and access onto the M18 motorway where Limerick, Shannon, and Galway are all commutable. The property is private with a high stone wall to the rear facing the road. There is an avenue from the road running along the east side of the courtyard opening up to the front of the house to the right and a discrete parking area to the left. The site is mature and the deciduous woodland on the site provide shelter, privacy and quiet refuge when needed. There is an active vegetable and herb garden to the west of the house and the southern front garden is in lawn. The Manor House is featured in the Hugh Weir s houses of Clare. It was carefully restored and modernised in 2008. It offers excellent accommodation with 5 bedrooms all ensuite. Previous families associated with the house included Studdert, Griffey, Hogan, and Douglas. The property was built between 1856 and 1859 by Major, Charles Washington Studdert. Lady Gregory was a frequent Visitor to Cragmoher House. The original estate was circa 850 acres. The Studderts developed industrial egg production, circa 3,000 chickens, and used the West Clare railway to send eggs daily to the egg market in Dublin. The main residence has been fully modernised and is in excellent condition. Entry is through a conservatory at the front which provides a transition to a generous entrance hall with 3.25m high ceilings. This grand entrance hall has a clear view to the dining room through double doors at the end. It also provides access to the drawing room, the living room (with solid fuel stove) and stunning staircase to the first floor. There is a cosy study to the side of the dining room and beyond the dining room there is an entry to the kitchen. The kitchen is complete with a gas/electric stove, Belfast sink and kitchen units. The kitchen provides access to the courtyard and the first floor via a back stairs. The first floor consists of 5 generous bedrooms, all of which are ensuite. On the staircase return to the first floor landing there are steps to French doors leading to a balcony surrounding the Ghillies cottage. There is a laundry room above the kitchen which can be accessed from the back stairs and this room could easily be converted into a 6th ensuite bedroom if required. There is also a contemporary main bathroom complete with Jacuzzi bath. The master bedroom is a truly stunning room currently comfortably accommodating a four poster bed. There is ample attic space which could have potential for further second floor accommodation. The courtyard provides access to the Ghillies Cottage (Floor area 44sqm), the Coach house (Floor area 79sqm + 27sqm sunroom) and the Stables (Floor area 94sqm + 47sqm sunroom). This additional accommodation is currently providing excellent short let income to the owners. The Ghillies Cottage is a two storey one bedroom cottage. The Coach house and Stables are interconnecting and both have generous independent kitchen/living/dining spaces. There is a large Sunroom that has been sub divided between the two units. The Dairy (Floor area 76sqm) to the rear of the main residence is currently a storage area and art studio, but has significant potential to be developed further as a function space or additional accommodation. The property can continue to be an outstanding home with income earning potential or be developed further as a unique exclusive guest accommodation venue. This is truly a very rare opportunity to purchase a modernised country residence in a gorgeous private setting. BER C1. BER No. 114343965. Manor House 353sqm. Conservatory 3.9m x 3m.
