DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are delighted to bring 'Rose House' to the market. This historic property which dates back over 300 years is an original farm house which has undergone modernisation but undoubtedly presents an opportunity to further extend or upgrade to suit one's own needs. It is steeped in time as it is believed the Liberator, Daniel O'Connell often stayed there on his way to Dublin.
Rose House is located only a short drive from Limerick City centre on a site of over 1 acre and offers complete privacy and seclusion from the busy pace of city life. The property offers spacious well laid out accommodation over two floors and is the ideal home for family living or entertaining. It is across the road from Larkins Pub and a shop/petrol station. There are two schools within walking distance. The University of Limerick is just three kilometres down the road. Rose House is convenient to the M7 road network and Shannon airport .
The property is accessed via electric gates from Larkin's Cross. A gravelled driveway leads to the front of the house which is most attractive and the secluded front garden area is planted with an array or rose bushes, shrubs and has a mature selection of trees offering a high degree of privacy. Gates to the side of the house lead to the rear yard which houses a variety of original stables, outbuildings and rear garden area , all of which offers enormous potential to the new owner to develop to suit their own needs.
Internally the property underwent some modernisation approximately 28 years ago. This included a custom pine kitchen, bathrooms were fitted, plumbing, wiring and general replastering and improvements to the internal accommodation. Ten years ago, double glazed timber sash windows were also fitted to most of the property.
To the front of the property one enters via an original entrance porch with original tiled floors. There is exposed stone work. There are double doors through to the entrance hallway.
The hallway has solid timber flooring and under stair storage.
The drawing room is situated to the left of the hall and is a most impressive room with dual aspect windows, a pleasant outlook over the front garden and a large open fireplace as its centre piece.
The living room to the right of the hall is also an impressive room and is open plan through to the dining room. Again there is an impressive marble fireplace and the dining room opens back into the utility room that is off the kitchen. The wood floors in this room were reclaimed from a 200 year old ship.
Off the hallway there is a rear porch with door to the back garden and it opens through to the kitchen/breakfast room. This has a traditional farmhouse feel with a full range of timber wall and floor units, original floor tiles, Belfast sink and a gas and electric stove with two electric and two gas hobs. The utility room has a modern range of units and is plumbed for washing machine and dryer.
On the second floor there are four bedrooms. The master suite incorporates a large bedroom, a modern shower room ensuite and a dressing room. All the bedrooms are spacious double rooms and there is a bathroom with shower and separate free standing bath and a separate w.c.
