WITH LARGE LIVING areas, multiple bedrooms and, often, sizeable gardens, it’s easy to understand the appeal of living in a spacious property.
This week we’re looking at four large homes around the country priced under €600,000 – from a former rectory in Limerick to a Georgian property in Laois.
Built in 1768, Moymore House is a former rectory located on four acres. It comes to the market in great condition and with all original features including flooring, high ceilings and windows. The four-bed property enjoys idyllic views of the surrounding countryside, and is surrounded by lawns. There’s also an original cobblestone courtyard with a range of outbuildings.
Located on five acres of beautiful gardens and parkland, Castletown Manor is a highly impressive six-bed country residence. Dating from the mid 17th century, the manor house and courtyard accommodation extends to a total of 6,994 sq ft. There are many attractive features throughout, including open fireplaces, the original staircase and wooden flooring.
Measuring 4,000 sq ft and sitting on one acre, Sheane House is a truly impressive Georgian property. Built in 1837, the accommodation once included a private school and living quarters where the current west wing of the residence is. The interior is beautiful, with features including original marble fireplaces, flooring and cornicing. Outside, the garden is highly private and includes a Boston-ivy clad pergola.
With five bedrooms, 1.74 acres of gardens and Cavan town centre a 10-minute walk away, Glenfort is an ideal family home. The accommodation includes a 1,291 sq ft basement area which requires completion and could potentially be converted into two self-contained apartments. There’s a spacious lawn area to the front and rear of the property, with mature trees adding a great sense of privacy.
