Limerick Property of the week: Stunning Tudor House in idyllic suburban setting

Alan Owens


THE stunning Tudor House in Castletroy in Limerick, boasting sculpted gardens, a tennis court and five bedrooms on a two acre site, is on the market for €1.4m.

Located on Castletroy’s Golf Links Road, arguably Limerick’s most sought after residential address outside the city limits, this is one of the very finest family homes to come to market in an idyllic, leafy suburban setting.

Tudor House occupies two acres of sculpted gardens – offering a tennis court, four-bay garage, Indian stone terrace, numerous outbuildings on an elevated site with breath-taking, west-facing views over the city.

The imposing Tudor style home has been substantially overhauled since its initial construction. The property comes to the market today with a C1 energy rating, modern specifications and immaculate classical décor over each of its three floors.

From its double fronted entrance, you step through to a stately entrance hall - complete with its wood panelled staircase, polished parquet floor, William Morris wallpaper and ornate coving. The hall affords the width and breadth to provide a superb reception area, however it is in the drawing room beyond where the property impresses most.

Divided into two sections, an archway guides past the grand piano to the southerly sitting area, set around a feature marble fireplace and wood burning stove. A bay window overlooks the rolling lawns, with patio doors opening to a multi-level sun terrace spanning the rear of the home.

Centred on the ground floor, the modern open plan kitchen is fully tiled and fitted with solid wood units – complete with integrated Neff appliances, raised convection ovens, granite counter-tops and an island workstation. French doors provide access to the patio in addition to plentiful natural light, with spot lighting overhead suited to the approaching winter months.

Past the breakfast area, double doors open to a cosy family room, finished with parquet floors and offering a second feature fireplace.

Beyond the family room there is perfectly placed study, offering a retreat set apart from the main body of the home. A boot room and guest WC are also accessible from the family room, with a second guest bathroom from the main hall. The ground floor is completed by a formal dining room complete with a floor to ceiling window.

On the first-floor there are a total of five superb double bedrooms, two of which feature large bay windows with spectacular views and are ensuite. All of this is in addition to a beautifully appointed main bathroom. Each ensuite is equipped with full shower facilities, while the main bath contains a jet-stream corner bath and separate walk-in shower.

The third floor offers an invaluable additional level for growing families, with space for a games room, cinema space or guest accommodation.

There is a sixth bedroom, guest WC and eaves storage space also.

Viewing is essential and by appointment only.
