Charming period house offers plenty of character

Price: €360,000


Cork Hill House, Clara, Co Offaly


Three-storey eight- bedroom period residence on two acres

Built around 1900, this lovely house has lots of character and charm, and has retained many of its original features including terracotta floor tiles, curved wooden staircase and unusual six pane timber sash windows.

Set on a secluded site with a tree-lined driveway and mature landscaped gardens, the house has 430sqm of accommodation.

Downstairs there is an entrance porch, hallway, sitting room with double doors into a conservatory, dining room, very spacious living room, kitchen, scullery, library/reception room, laundry room and two guest WCs.

The first floor contains four bedrooms and the main bathroom with a separate WC.

A fifth bedroom has been turned into a self-contained large bedsit with kitchenette, wood-burning stove and shower room. There are three more bedrooms. Outside there is a large garage, stable, carport and a rear allotment garden with gardener's cottage.

Pros: The house is just a five-minute walk from Clara village and the train station.

Cons: Some of the decor could do with updating.
