Plots of land around Lough Derg are very popular and houses within a few acres within earshot of the M7 are particularly attractive.
ilodiernan is located 1km from Puckane and 10km north of Nenagh and the motorway.
The late Georgian house at 36ac was probably built around 1820. Originally a Glebe house, it is typical of the residences being built for the clergy of the Church of Ireland at the time.
Relatively modest in proportion compared to other Georgian buildings, it retains all the features of the period, with high ceilings and ornate plasterwork and fireplaces.
A stone entrance leads to an avenue that winds 500m through the country mostly in parkland and paddocks.
The hilly terrain is still as it would have appeared to previous owners centuries ago, driving a carriage and four people through the site.
The passage typical of the time and the door lead into the entrance hall.
The dining room and salon on either side have two sides, with 12-paned large sash windows overlooking the lawns.
French doors give access from the salon to the south facing lawns.
To the rear is an office which could also be used as a bedroom along with a powder room and back porch.
The kitchen is in good condition with a range of fitted cupboards and an Aga. It adjoins an informal living room and dining area and a south facing conservatory.
A rear hall in the basement has a door to the courtyard and access to a cloakroom/boot room and kitchen.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, one of which has a dressing room and large windows overlooking the gardens.
Behind the house there is a courtyard with a coach house in good structural condition. The external offices could be recovered as stables or additional accommodation.
The coach house has a number of rooms that could be developed for a number of purposes.
The grounds contain an abundance of mature trees and the perimeter consists of a solid border surrounded by stone walls.
According to William Talbot of Sherry FitzGerald Talbot, this is a beautiful Georgian house. Whilst in need of some refurbishment it is perfectly livable in a lovely setting not far from Lough Derg and adjacent to the village of Puckane.
Roseanne De Vere Hunt of Sherry FitzGerald Country Homes describes it as “an ideal property for horse buyers”.
The joint agents lead the private contract sale for €950,000.
