Glorious flavour of the 1940s


KILCOCK/In lots from €100,000: ITS HARD to believe Portgloriam House is situated just minutes from the busy M4 motorway. Located outside Kilcock, this country home is set on five acres of grassland, with generous frontage to the road. The most striking aspect here is the sense of seclusion the house offers, facilitated by the carefully planted mature gardens, which feature a variety of trees, shrubs, flowerbeds and lawns.

Portgloriam is certainly a one off – the original house dates from 1944, and the current owner has carefully extended and upgraded the home over the years. Rooms are well proportioned with fine period fireplaces in the drawing room and sitting room, and nice architectural touches such as detailed architraves and cornicing. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms – two with washhand basins – and a shared family bathroom. The new owner will want to modernise, but there is plenty of scope to extend.

Outside, the patio area overlooks the rear gardens and three separate paddocks. Adjacent is a handsome trellised stable building with four loose boxes and a loft overhead.

The house is available in a number of lots through Coonan Auctioneers in Maynooth. The first lot, including the house and 1.6 acres, is asking €350,000, while the adjoining 3.6 acres – with separate road access – is asking €100,000. Together they can be bought for €450,000.
