DescriptionLocated near to the summit of the idyllic Castlequarter district in Cratloe, Siasa House is a
stunning property that combines chic, modern design with exclusive country living all within
easy access to Limerick city. Positioned on a most desirable elevation, this extremely stylish
property commands picturesque views from its south-facing garden of the Shannon Estuary
and both Ballintea and Bunratty Castles, and uninterrupted vistas of miles of rolling hills
touching the eastern horizon.
On arrival, Siasa House features an imposing entrance wall and high gates on its north-facing
entrance, ensuring both privacy and security. Upon passing through the gate, the eye is drawn
immediately to the raised entrance. The beautiful solid wood doorway is braced on either side
by tall windows and bathed in a warm light from above by cleverly concealed light fixtures.
The stone driveway provides ample parking and facilitates easy access to the expansive
detached garaged, located on the property's sloping front garden. Set on 0.5 Acres, the
properties back garden is easily accessible via the modern concrete terrace adjacent to the
kitchen, and through the sliding glass doors in both the master bedroom suite and the second
south-facing bedroom. The elevated back garden appears to float above the surrounding
landscape, providing an awe-inspiring view of the River Shannon and the evening sun setting
beyond the hills of east Clare.
In addition to its idyllic surroundings, Siasa House maintains proximity to urban centres
through the N18, M7 and M20 which are all easily accessed from the property. These
motorways ensure effortless travel to Limerick City and its University as well as Shannon
Airport and provides an easy commute to Dublin, Cork and Galway.
One's immediate reaction upon crossing the threshold is to notice the impressive amount of
natural light filtering into the hallway from the north-facing windows in addition to the light
streaming through the glass panelled doors leading into the kitchen. The L-shaped hallway
fuses Italian porcelain tiles with contemporary SwissKrono flooring and 10-foot high ceilings
to provide access to the living room, kitchen and the four bedrooms. As you pass beneath the
statement chandelier into the kitchen, one cannot help but to admire the way in which the
light filters down from the skylights in the high, vaulted ceiling to provide a warm, sparkling
glow on the beautiful Italian tile below. At the centrepiece of the room is an impressive
300cm x 126cm island unit with a Silestone countertop and recessed Franke sink and taps,
which can easily seat up to 8 people for casual dining. The large, airy room is framed on one
side by a modern custom designed kitchen with integrated Neff appliances. The property's
panoramic view of the surrounding countryside is easily visible through both the kitchen's
expansive sliding doors and its glass-panelled nook, which is the perfect location for reading
or enjoying a glass of wine while also drinking in the property's natural splendour. The
separate living room features a glass-fronted, modern, Stovax cassette fireplace, which is
framed on either side by low, horizontal windows and bespoke, contemporary floating
shelving. Coupled with picturesque views of the surrounding Clare Hills and Bunratty Castle,
the substantial floor space of the living room ensures it is the perfect place for entertaining
guests or relaxing.
Siasa House features four expansive bedrooms. The bedrooms on the eastern side each boast
an abundance of floor space in addition to walk-in closets. Both rooms are adjacent to the
home's master bathroom which features a large power shower and a modern floating unit
with a wide oval ceramic sink. The southern bedroom provides easy access to the terrace and
plenty of natural light, due to its large glass sliding doors which overlook the back garden and
the stunning views beyond. The master bedroom suite is connected to its en-suite bathroom
via a dressing room with fitted closets. The en-suite itself is equipped with a large power
shower, his and hers sinks and an impressive 180cm long oval bathtub, framed on three sides
by a glass nook. The property also features a well-considered utility room adjacent to the
kitchen, containing sleek handle-less cabinetry and access to substantial attic storage space.
