HOUSE OF THE WEEK Four-bed for €549,000


By Emma Connolly 


STEPPING inside Gearagh House near Clonakilty is like stepping back in time – but with modern luxuries including a sauna. 

The four-bedroomed, five-bathroomed Victorian house, built in 1840, is a generous 4,000 sq ft and is on the market with Hodnett Forde for €549,000. 

Selling agent Andy Donoghue says there’s been considerable local and international interest in the property at Rossmore which isn’t at all surprising. 

Set on 1.5 acres, he says the house has been carefully restored and upgraded while still retaining all of its historical charm. 

Features include flagstone flooring in the hall, cut-stone detailing and exposed beams to mention just a few. 

Accommodation comprises three reception rooms, a westerly orientated sun room, study/office, kitchen/dining room, utility room and recreation room with sauna. 

All four double bedrooms are ensuite and on the first floor. 

The grounds are landscaped with a cut-stone and patio sun terrace, garage and  tool shed.
