Landscape House could just be every man's dream. The property includes a pub and a nine-hole golf course. What more could you ask for?

However, the residence and lands at Clonlara, have even more. The property comes with 79.85ac of farmland, river frontage on to the Shannon, road frontage and extensive tourist accommodation.

Located 3km from Clonlara, 15km from Killaloe and 12km from Limerick, the property will attract enquiries from tour-ists, given the amenities on offer and its location close to Lough Derg.

The main house is a two-storey-over-basement residence which was built in 1834 and remodelled in faux Tudor style between 1913 and 1917.

Extending to 8,557 sq ft, the house needs considerable modernisation and refurbishment.

The ground floor accommodation includes an entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, sunroom, kitchen and utility, while on the first floor are seven bedrooms and three bathrooms.


The basement is home to a wine cellar, boiler room and two store rooms. Many of the original features are intact and include marble fireplaces, timber shuttering and some ornate plasterwork.

The old courtyard to the rear of the house has been converted to accommodate nine guest apartments.

A separate outbuilding was developed as a pub and has a current licence, all of which is included in the sale.

An extensive range of outbuildings with the property could be used for livestock or machinery storage

Like all houses of its size and vintage Landscape House is guarded by a gate lodge, which is in need of total renovation. From the gateway a tree-lined avenue leads to the house where it divides and continues to lead to the yard.

The house is surrounded by extensive parkland, dotted with mature trees and with views of the Shannon. The lands are in one block divided into a number of fields and all in grass.

Bounded on one side by the river Shannon and by a country road on the other, the farm has extensive river frontage. Until recently the lands had been used as a nine-hole golf course.

With a guide price of €650,000, the property is for sale by private treaty. The sale is being handled jointly by GVM Property Sales and Ganly Walters.
