Killonan House, near Ballysimon on the outskirts of Limerick city, is a substantial residence on 50ac with a wide range of outbuildings and facilities.

It is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €800,000.

The property has excellent frontage on to the N24 Tipperary Road and is only five minutes from the M20/M7 and 10 minutes from Limerick.

The residence is a fine two-storey farmhouse built in the early part of the 20th century with extensions to the side and to the rear. Reached by a winding driveway, it is set in lovely parkland with some fine stands of trees surrounded by manicured lawns and mature gardens.

Extending to 2,500 sq ft, the accommodation includes a hallway with a dining room to one side and a sitting room to the other, both with access to the lawn. Directly beyond the hall is the lounge, the kitchen and utility with a guest WC.

Upstairs are five bedrooms, one en-suite and the

Out of doors is a range of impressive sheds that includes a modern four-bay slatted feeding shed with a sheltered feeding area and a lie-back space.


Other buildings include a three-column haybarn with slatted lean-to and another haybarn with a lean-to, while there are also a number of traditional stone sheds along with cattle-handling facilities in the yard.

The land is in rectangular shape and made up of made up of eight level fields divided by traditional hedgerow. While mainly made up of the best of grazing ground, to the rear of the property the land can be a bit softer in nature but is nevertheless good ground.

According to selling agent Tom Crosse, this farm is an ideal holding for someone in search of a hobby farm within shouting distance of the city.
