Crohane House is a Georgian farmhouse - though without an accompanying farm these days - in the Slievenamon valley, near Killenaule, south Tipperary.

It stands on 1.6 acres of grounds at the end of a long driveway making its way through trees and past the 19th-century Crohane Church of Ireland church.

Though there's not enough land to farm, there is a stone courtyard with extensive and beautiful two-storey outbuildings, including stables. These buildings might be converted into some sort of commercial use, or they could become part of the living accommodation.

The main house has 2,250 sq ft of floor space on three storeys, and it is in good order, having been restored. The ground floor has a kitchen/dining room with a wood-burning stove, a drawing room with another stove and a study.

In the basement, there is another reception room with a slate floor and an open fire, a bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and fireplace, and a toilet. The first floor has the main bathroom, where there is a cast-iron bath, separate showers and two bedrooms, including the master bedroom, which itself has an en-suite and dressing room.

From the courtyard you reach another large room in use as a utility, although could be knocked through to the main house. It includes the original kitchen fireplace with adjoining smoking chamber.

The grounds consist of a paddock at the back of the courtyard and a lawned garden in front of the house. The grounds are dotted with 200-year-old broadleaf trees, including oak, ash, horse chestnut and birch, and there's a stream flowing through the courtyard.

The nearest village is Killenaule, about six kilometres away, and the property is about two hours from Dublin via the M7.

Crohane House is for sale for around €265,000 with REA Grace in Callan, Co Kilkenny, (056) 772 5163.
