Clonageera House, located at Durrow, Co Laois, is a gracious Georgian country house built around 1803. Set on 30ac of grassland, this lovely two-storey over-basement residence is both elegant and homely.
It extends to 9,634ft2 and includes several spacious reception areas and nine bedrooms.
The residence and its lands have recently come on the market and are being sold by private treaty, with a guide price of €1.35m.
The sale is being handled by Dublin estate agents Savills.
The property is a short distance from the village of Durrow on the N8 south of Abbeyleix. It is approached by a long gravelled driveway and set on grounds with many interesting and unique features, including a splendid oval-walled garden with an old gardener's cottage.
Typical of properties of its vintage, Clonageera has a fine traditional stable yard with a range of single and two-storey outbuildings.
The current owners raised a large family in the house and, since most of the children are now grown and have left, they no longer need the space.
The house has been refurbished over the years and is fully decorated throughout and appropriately modernised.
