Period home in south Tipp's Golden Vale
The Old Rectory at Donohill near Cappawhite, Co Tipperary is a lovely property on 10ac of Golden Vale land. It comes to the market by private treaty with a guide price of €350,000.
Located in beautiful countryside with breathtaking views of the Galtee Mountains, the property is about 15 minutes' drive from Cashel and 35 minutes from Limerick. Along with the 10ac, the property includes a three-bedroom guest cottage.
The house was renovated in the last 10 years and maintains many of its period features. These include high ceilings, rose centre pieces, a fanlight over the doorway, sash windows with working shutters, tiled floors, coving and ornate fireplaces.
The ground floor accommodation includes an entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, office, kitchen and utility. The kitchen is fully fitted in the country style with Belfast sinks, granite counter tops, an Aga oven, cooker and extractor fan. The utility room is also fully fitted. Upstairs there are five double bedrooms with fireplaces and a family bathroom.
The ancillary accommodation in the guest cottage includes a fitted kitchen, a sitting room, three bedrooms and a shower room.
The house is surrounded by lovely gardens. Tom Crosse of GVM describes this as "a fine elegant property, set in God's own country".
