A HOUSE in county Limerick has come on the market for €1,690,000, one of just six properties for sale in Limerick with a price-tag in excess of €1m.
Ballinamona House, just outside the village of Hospital, is for sale by private treaty and is due to be marketed for sale to international buyers.
The property, covering 4,500 sq. feet, includes six bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is for sale through agent Matt Fallon in county Cork.
In the sale brochure, it is described as “a superb opportunity to acquire a very substantial holding with a most impressive country house in a private rural setting, yet within easy access of Limerick city and Shannon Airport.”
The drawing room, sitting room and dining room all include marble fireplaces and decorative cornicing.
An adjoining stretch of land in Ballinamona, but owned by separate parties, sold at auction earlier this month for €475,000. That 56 acre roadside holding included a derelict residence, yard and cattle pen.
Meanwhile, the latest listings with the Property Price Register show that 52 properties sold in Limerick last month, amounting to sales of some €5.8m.
The most expensive property to sell was in Newtown, Clarina, for €460,000, followed by Kinvara on the North Circular Road in the city for €398,000. The latter was listed for sale for €755,000 in 2009 - nearly a 47% drop in price.
The cheapest property to sell in the city was on Byrne Avenue, Prospect for €8,000, while two other properties sold for €10,000 in Glasgow Park and the Hyde Road.
So far this year, there have been 226 houses sales in Limerick city and county, amounting to nearly €23m in sales.
