Detached five-bedroom house
RARELY do the old and the new come together as well as they do in Limerick’s Mountross House.
In 2006, the owners of this early 20th century stone-built property took on an ambitious renovation project. And their hard work has turned Mountross House into a modern home with an old soul. But at €295,000, the property has a price tag befitting of something much less impressive.
One aspect of Mountross’ renovation was an extension of its traditional building that has taken the house to around 3,700 sq ft in size. As a result, it offers up to five bedrooms and enough space for almost any family.
Meanwhile, those who buy on the basis of character will be delighted by Mountross House’s vaulted ceilings, wooden beams, and sweeping internal staircase, not to mention its 2.5-metre wide balcony that hugs the old part of the building.
And to that third class of buyer — those who are on the lookout for something different — the property offers a fully-equipped bar, as well as a hot-tub found in the master bedroom’s ensuite.
Outside Mountross House there is an extensive decking area around and to the side of the extension. The landscaped gardens, meanwhile, have man-made flower beds, mature trees and a stone path that winds its way towards a lawned area with a garden pond.
On top of all that, the one-acre site offers fine views over the Golden Vale and a detached garage, which could be converted into additional living space.
Beyond the property’s boundaries, new owners can take advantage of scores of beautiful scenic walks and will find the historical site of Springfield Castle is on their doorstep.
But Mountross is not isolated in the countryside. While the small village of Broadford is only a 400-metre walk away, the picturesque town of Adare, its famous golf course and its Manor lie only a 30 minute drive down the road.
It is no wonder then that this exceptional property has been featured in Ireland’s ‘Self Build’ magazine.
