Period home with contents

Set on over half an acre of mature gardens in Killenard, Co Laois, Cashel House is a double-fronted Victorian home that has just come on the market. With living space measuring some 223sqm, the house was fully restored and modernised in 2006.

The original house had five bedrooms, but it now has three large bedrooms, which are all en suite. Cashel House also has a steam room, sunroom, study, sitting room and a formal dining room.

The bright, modern kitchen has all appliances, including an American fridge freezer and a Waterford Stanley gas hob.

The house retains many original features including solid doors, cornicing, original Victorian stucco work and wide plank timber floors.

Cashel House is being sold fully furnished.

David Keane, owner of The Store Yard architectural and interior salvage shop in Portlaoise, helped to source original antique furniture and salvage other items, including a Victorian dining room table and chairs, a hallway table, partners desk in the study, gate posts and antique mirrors.

The curtains and soft furnishings were sourced by Collins Design.

The house is approached by a loose gravel driveway set behind electric gates. The site itself is very private and has been landscaped and maintained incorporating outdoor feature lighting.

The Heritage Golf & Spa Resort is a five minute walk away, as are a few restaurants and bars. The house is 10 minutes from the M7 main Dublin/Cork road.

Killenard Village itself is set at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains and has a newly renovated primary school, crèche, community centre and pub.
