DescriptionA beautifully converted historic schoolhouse set in stunning glen with mountain views.
The Old Schoolhouse has been lavishly restored in recent years with the addition of a modern extension built to a very high standard in 2008 and exudes old world charm to create a characterful home ideal for modern living.
Approached via a craftsman-built stone walled entrance, The Old Schoolhouse retains its original stature and provides ample parking to the front.
The Old Schoolhouse has spacious accommodation having been creatively redesigned over two floors to include all adequate needs of an individual, couple or young family. The original 'Schoolhouse' section of the house was renovated in recent years. It features high ceilings, original exposed sandstone walls, and a feature fireplace.
An interconnecting bookcase lined hallway is where old meets new and features the spacious master bedroom with mountain views, bathroom, utility room, and the breath-taking and spacious living and dining area, with south-facing and sun-lit double doors leading out to the garden.
It is the focal point of the property as the large kitchen/dining room is flooded by daylight by the Scandinavian pine double-glazed windows and doors look out onto the surrounding green fields and mountains. The fully-fitted kitchen is every cook's dream. This room also opens onto the courtyard which is ideal for enjoying a morning coffee or al fresco dining in the summer.
There is also an extra kitchen/pantry, double bedroom, and a further twin mezzanine bedroom and modern bathroom. It could be used as a self-contained holiday home.
The whole property is heated by an external oil-burner feeding through to radiators, plus two large multifuel glass-fronted stoves that bring atmosphere and warmth to the living spaces.
The house is set within mature garden grounds which are sheltered by mature trees. There is also a garden shed located at the rear of the garden.
The Old Schoolhouse is located in the "Premier County" of Tipperary and situated in the heart of the scenic and ancient Glen of Aherlow, amongst historic landscapes including the majestic Galtee Mountains, which have inspired a wealth of Irish stories, songs and art.
Offering unspoilt scenery, it is where the lush valley of the River Aherlow runs between the Galtee Mountains and the wooded ridge of Slievenamuck. The Glen is bound by the picturesque villages of Galbally and Bansha, which provide for everyday amenities and services.
For horse racing enthusiasts, there is excellent racing to be enjoyed at Clonmel racecourse, Thurles racecourse and Tipperary racecourse.
For the keen huntsman, the Tipperary Foxhounds are within boxing distance.
For golfers, the magnificent Tipperary Golf Club, founded in 1896, is just one of 12 golf courses in the County.
There are good primary schools in the local vicinity including schools at nearby Galbally and Bansha. Secondary schools are available at the Tipperary town (10km).
The village of Lisverranane is a very convenient 5-minutes away, and a short 10-minute drive will take you to Tipperary town with all its amenities, schools and shopping options. Alongside Tipperary town is the long-established railway station, providing travellers with comfortable and frequent daily access to the main Dublin to Cork Railway line, and several stops in between.
Neighbouring towns including Cahir, Cashel, Clonmel and Mitchellstown provide modern shopping facilities, frequent festivals and stunning restaurants and pubs. Sites such as the world-famous Rock of Cashel, and numerous events and exhibitions, attract visitors from around the world.
The Glen of Aherlow is at the centre of County Tipperary's natural beauty whether on trails by foot or by bicycle. Long hikes or country strolls, gentle cycling or mountain biking, water sports and freshwater fishing, are all available within easy and immediate reach of The Old Schoolhouse.
In addition to the wonderful local access around Tipperary, the location near the borders of the neighbouring counties of Cork, Limerick and Kilkenny widen the nearby places of interest.
