High-spec five-bed on an acre near Athlone for €449,000
In the townland of Clonbonny, is a large detached house on just under an acre. If you want to travel to Athlone by road from there, and avoid running into errant livestock, it will take less than ten minutes.
Built in 2004, the house measures a substantial 2,920 sq ft, but neither hoovering it nor heating it should prove too much of a headache: it has a central vacuum system and a creditable B3 energy rating.
The space includes five bedrooms, four of them on the first floor around a double-height gallery landing. Three of these bedrooms have en-suite showers, and the fourth is next to the main bathroom, where there's a free-standing bath and separate shower.
The fifth bedroom is downstairs so could be used for something else, not least because it gives onto a rear games room with French doors to the garden.
Also on the ground floor there's a reception room on either side of the entrance hall, while the kitchen at the back of the house opens to a sunroom or dining room to the side, facing southwest.
The agent is Sherry FitzGerald O'Meara (0906) 475 500 and the asking price is €449,000.
