BER Exempt

With many of its original features intact this historic 2 storey limestone structure has evolved into a unique and charming three bedroom family home. The ground floor accommodates a spacious kitchen/dining room with modern fitted kitchen, attractive sitting room, shower room, double bedroom and spacious south facing living area. The first floor comprises a landing, two double bedrooms and a shower room. There is a large utility room which is accessed from the patio area. This room is plumbed for appliances and shower/toilet facility and would easily convert to an en-suite bathroom if required. The Storehouse on site also retains all of the original stone features with the added benefit of a new roof. There is an opportunity to extend and renovate to accommodate a workshop/study or residential unit, a possible worthwhile project for the future owners

Secluded entrance from main road. Access along a tree lined avenue opens up to the spacious driveway and lawns, with three sheltered gardens surrounding the residence. This is an oasis of peace and calm, with mature trees defining the boundary of the site.

The old railway line defines the site to the south of the property, soon to become the Abbeyfeale to Listowel Greenway, and part of the 100 km Great Southern Trail, a cycling and walking amenity route that will eventually link Limerick to Fenit.
