Description

CBPM introduces to the market the most rare and unique 3.78 Acre site nestled within The Leafy Loop Walk, which is a 22km signposted walk that consists of many different walks of country lanes, riverbanks, forestry paths and woodland paths of varied length and duration with endless Beech trees, colourful borders, green parkland, wild forest, orchards, carpets of bluebells, endless selection of wildlife and the meandering River Nore.
This breath-taking site, which is called The Courtyard, was used for accommodating the staff of Dunmore House and a bay to keep the horses and coaches that were an imperial part of the 18th century life. It sits adjacent to the ruins of the demolished Dunmore House, that contains some outbuildings that still stand in its glory today with a Limestone finish and a Gothic cut stone arch. Hardwood trees and a majestic high stone wall surround the area with steps that lead down to the bank of the River Nore.
Dunmore House was built in the 18th century and was a grand 5-bay, 3 storey house with projecting two storey wings and it was home to the Bishop of Ossory, Edward Maurice, who passed in 1756. Dunmore House was demolished in the 1970s, leaving a demesne wall and an octagonal tower near the entrance to the estate.
The entrance to this rare site is just exquisite with its enchanted wooded sweeping driveway that leads to this site that brings endless possibilities and opportunities for a new buyer. All services to include water, electricity and sewage are all on site and at night the surrounding high stone walls are a bright with lanterns, which makes this one of the most prestigious sites that is currently available around Laois.
This site now sits in all its glory, steeped and overflowing in history while waiting to start an exciting new chapter with a new buyer. It presents with its own distinctive sense of place and its seclusion and privacy is balanced with the benefits of having neighbours and amenities are close by.
