Curraghmore House, Adare, Co. Limerick
- Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
- Overall Floor Area: 511 m²
A tree lined avenue leads through lush paddocks, bounded by post-and-rail fencing, to find Curraghmore House set amid woodland and parkland, adjacent to its own private lake. The abiding atmosphere is one of peace and privacy, despite being less than ten minutes from the thriving Heritage Town of Adare. Designed by architect Seamus Carr, and built in 2005 to classic period proportions, Curraghmore House benefits from having every modern convenience, such as separately controlled zoned underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, and excellent insulation. Meanwhile the house also boasts original parquet flooring, exceptionally generous ceiling heights, bespoke carpentry and gracious marble fireplaces. A truly happy family home, Curraghmore House has six bedrooms, and ample space for everyone to work and play. Inside, an elegant entrance hall with a fireplace opens to a formal drawing room and dining room. The formal rooms blend to family spaces, the generous kitchen/dining room/sun room, with its Aga and French doors also leading to a cosy family room with a wood-burning stove. Outside, the Arthur Shackleton designed gardens include sheltered patio areas, sweeping lawns, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. The owners, who commissioned the house, were future thinking, choosing the highest possible specifications, working with local craftspeople to ensure excellence in finishes throughout. Their care has extended across the 27 acres of grounds, including overseeing the planting of more than 3,000 trees. An exceptionally charming, historic, three-bedroomed thatched cottage is also on site, and is included in the sale. Dating from the 1600s, and with its own entrance, Purtill Cottage was the site of the last ever eviction in Munster during the dark times of the 1800s. The story has a happy ending, as the locals rallied around, boycotting the landlord and his bailiffs to the point that the family were given back their home. The current owners have fully restored the cottage, making it a wonderful addition and adding huge potential to the site. - Beautiful period-style detached house - Built 2005 - Elegant reception rooms - Wonderful mixture of formal and relaxing spaces - Extensive kitchen / breakfast room / sun room - Six bedrooms - Separate historic three-bedroom thatched cottage - c. 27 Acres of gardens, paddocks and woodlands with private lake - Gardens designed by Arthur Shackleton, including vegetable garden and fruit trees - 4 Stables, horse walker, barn, all weather arena and cross country course - Garage and car port - 5,500 square feet approx. - Double glazed alu-clad windows throughout - Underfloor heating at ground floor level - OFCH - Private well
