Description

Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, assisted by Casey Kennedy Estate Agents, are delighted to bring Larch Vale House to market.

Larch Vale House was originally built in the 1820s. It was the home of Rev. William Reynell Gresson the rector of the nearby Church at Borrisnafarney serving the Loughton House Estate, the town of Moneygall and the surrounding area. It is perched on the side of Loyer Hill, with expansive views over the countryside.

I recent times it was stripped back to the bare walls and fully renovated, including underpinning of all walls, new insulated floors, new wall insulation, new roofs, new staircase, new plumbing and new wiring. The current owners added the sunroom, two wood fired stoves, solar panels, and a new Grant high efficiency condensing boiler, They also renovated and re-roofed the outbuildings, underpinning the walls and rewiring some of them, to include an electric car charger

Larch Vale House is impeccably presented to modern standards. It retains the beautifully proportioned rooms with high ceilings, and some original features from the Georgian period including the front door with arched fan light, two fireplaces, a selection of stained glass windows, and the solid sandstone walls.

The main house consists of formal sitting and dining rooms either side of a central entrance hall, with a home office / ground floor bedroom behind the staircase. It was extended to the rear in the early 1900's with a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, large utility room/pantry, downstairs shower room, and walk-in hot press. This level has 9ft / 2.74m ceilings with coving and centre rose plasterwork, attractive chandelier light fittings, solid wood flooring and high skirting.

The original coach house has been converted into a delightful "long room" ideal for entertaining, with French doors fitted into the original arched carriage doorway, a lofted wood ceiling, and a high efficiency wood burning stove at one end.

Outside, to the left of the carriage doors, is a delightful secret garden catching the afternoon and evening sun.

Off the breakfast area there is a spacious sunroom built in 2010, with original stone walls along two sides and south and west facing Munster Joinery double glazing on the others. French doors from here open to the back garden / orchard area.

Upstairs there are two very large ensuite bedrooms off the first floor landing. On the second floor are two more very large bedrooms, a family bathroom and an eaves storage room / home office with two skylights.

The 300m long tree-lined driveway leads to an arched gateway opening to a spacious courtyard surrounded by an additional 307sq.m. of outbuildings giving enormous extra space for various business uses or additional accommodation (S.P.P. ).

Larch Vale House is situated less than 1km from the village of Moneygall which sits just off the M7 on the border between counties Tipperary and Offaly. The town features a primary school, GAA club, football club, athletics club, gym, children's playground, police station, a community cafe, and Ollie Hayes's Bar which was made famous by the visit of Barack Obama in 2011. It is less than an hour's drive from Shannon Airport and 90 minutes from Dublin Airport. It is served by bus 854 which runs 3 times daily to the train station in Roscrea. Other local market towns include Nenagh, Birr famous for its castle/Observatory, Thurles with it's GAA Museum. Limerick City is just a 40 minute drive. There are highly regarded secondary schools at Mount St. Joseph's in Roscrea, Ursuline in Thurles and St. Mary's and CBS in Nenagh. There is a marked walking trail 'The Loop of Loyer' on Loyer Hill and, for the more adventurous, there are extensive walks and cycle routes in the nearby Slieve Bloom Mountains. Equestrian facilities abound in this area, with a racecourse at Thurles and a local North Tipperary hunt.

At just 1 mile from the much frequented Barack Obama Plaza on the M7, this location would be ideal for a family home or a destination venue.
