On the exterior, Riverstown House exudes Georgian charm while internally there is a tasteful combination of the old and modern world.
This picturesque period residence located on the banks of the River Brosna is only circa 1km from the historic heritage town of Birr, Co Offaly.
The splendid nine-bedroom residence has been painstakingly renovated by its present owner to offer a stunning family home over three floors.
A host of original Georgian features have been retained and these have been further enhanced by handmade bespoke carpentry and cabinetry throughout.
This is a turnkey property that covers a number of possible income streams if desired.
The property includes the three-storey residence and consists of the following:
The ground floor comprises of an entrance hall, lounge, sitting room/dining room, entertainment room/snug, internal hallway, guest WC, office, shower room, large hall, kitchen with pantry and utility.
Moving upstairs there are five bedrooms, shower room and main bathroom. Also on the first floor is a self-contained apartment. Included within it is a living room, kitchen, sixth bedroom, shower room and separate WC. The remaining three bedrooms and large guest bathroom are found on the second floor.
Accessed via electric gates there is a walled garden running to 1.5ac in size. Private parking is available to the front of the house as well as four stables.
An interesting feature here and one that might could give an insight into a future use of the house is a fully renovated barn.
This feature – with exposed ceiling beams, gas heaters on the walls, lighting and a large handmade bar area – is ideal for hosting parties and social gatherings. The barn is completed with a separate mezzanine area accessed via a staircase and separate ladies and gent’s toilets.
With the option of river bank walks along the River Brosna, there is more than a hint that Roverstown House could present itself as boutique accommodation or as a wedding venue in time.
Further to the rear of the property there are 28ac of land. Split into five fields of various size, there is some river frontage as well as a selection of mature trees close to the residence.
According to the Irish Farmers Journal Land Report on average prices range between €9,800 and €10,500/ac in the Offaly and north Tipperary area. The land isn’t the focal point of this property that exudes potential though.
Jointly on the books of Goffs property and Birr based, Donal Boyd Auctioneering Ltd, the price for this stunning property in the centre of Ireland is available on request.
