DescriptionShesharoe House is a stunning period property on c. 6 acres, situated just outside Portroe village and close to Garrykennedy on the shores of Lough Derg. This location is just over 11km from Nenagh, offering easy access to the M7 motorway making Limerick, Shannon airport and Dublin all very accessible.
It was constructed in the early 1870s and served as a Presbytery for Portroe and was in continuous use by the clergy until 1964. The current owners have been there for 22 happy years during which time they undertook extensive renovation and refurbishment.
Some of the major works include underfloor heating, solar panels and geo-thermal heating. In addition, double glazing has been installed in all windows, while retaining the original sash window design. Similar upgrading has also been carried out to the cottage on the grounds.

To either side are large reception rooms, with sitting room and family room to your left and to the right are the kitchen/dining/living room with solid fuel stove and a large bay window offering beautiful views of Lough Derg.
