Beautifully restored 4 Bedroom period property on a mature site in the peaceful countryside just outside the village of Ballyglass. Everything about this house oozes character and beauty. The drive down the cobblestone road that leads up to the house gives you a flavour of the authenticity of the house and the integrity of its renovation.
As you approach the house, you go under the original stone arch and through original wrought iron gates which came from the convent in Claremorris. The house is the only remnants of the original impressive Newbrook House, which was part of Bingham estate, an ancestor of Lord Clanmorris.
The house as you see it today is the combination or the original granary and the living accommodation of the staff of the Landlords house, which was destroyed by fire around 1850 and never rebuilt. This property was built in the early part of the 18th century (1700’s) and was constructed of stone. The current owners purchased the house in 2008 and embarked on a comprehensive renovation project which included a new roof, new windows and doors, high level of insulation, plumbing and heating.
This unique property provides for one family occupation whilst at the same time providing you with the option to rent part of the house, which could operate as an Air B&B in a very practical and easy manner. Although the house is all under one roof, its design and layout lends itself to renting out the cottage element of the property.
Accommodation: (See photos for floorplan)
From the courtyard, you enter straight into a large Open-Plan Kitchen, Living and Dining room with a 3-metre high ceiling, complete with exposed iron ceiling beams. Although this is a very large room, it has a cosy feel to it, helped in no small part by the large solid fuel stove which throws heat throughout the room.
Kitchen: Country-style fitted kitchen with tile splashback, “Villeroy & Boch” ceramic sink and access to the utility room.
Dining Area: Forms part of the open plan kitchen.
Living Room: Quarry-tile flooring, large stone feature fireplace with solid fuel stove on an elevated hearth. There are double doors leading out to the side gardens.
An open-threaded staircase stands proudly in the centre of the room and leads up to three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The utility room is off the kitchen and is comprised of a tiled floor, fitted units, sink and worktop space.
A family bathroom is further down the hall and is comprised of a tiled floor, timber panelling to the walls, wash hand basin, WC and a large bath.
Sitting room with solid fuel stove. Feature storage nooks in the wall.
Large Bedroom, complete with shower room. There is a porch leading into this room which could provide independent access to this side of the property.
The house is nestled at the end of a private cobblestone drive. There is a large yard with ample car parking space. There is an orchard and an adjacent large lawn complete with original “Haggard” which is now used for general storage. There is a potting shed attached to the house.
This house would make a great family home, with its gardens and grounds forming a natural playground for children. With the beautiful Lough Carra on your doorstep, you won’t be short of things to do, whether that is walking, cycling, kayaking or simply relaxing in the peace and quiet of the countryside.
