Clonkeen House comprises not one but two properties on about 24 acres of land at Barringtons Bridge, eight miles from Limerick city.

The main house is a plain, five-bedroom Georgian that requiresmodernisation inside. Dating from around 1780, it is a spacious 464sq m (5,000sq ft).

Entry to the house is via a wooden porch that has a parquet floor and casement windows. A small sitting room with an office off it is to the right.

To the left is a drawing room with a marble fireplace, decorative cornicing and French windows through to the dining room where there is a matching marble fireplace and a bay window overlooking the front lawn.

A door leads from the dining room to the 1980s-style kitchen where another bay window looks onto the very substantial south-facing lawn.

At garden level there is a second kitchen, a living room opening to a terrace and one of the house’s five bedrooms. This could become a self-contained flat.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms (the main has an en suite bathroom).

To the rear of the main house, is a cut-stone coach house that is included in the sale. It was renovated and extended in 2007 to create a five-bedroom home of 232sq m (2,500sq ft). Downstairs, there’s a main bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom, a smart kitchen, living room and sun room.

Together, the properties are asking €700,000 through Savills. Set on about seven acres of gardens that run down to the banks of a river, the estate includes a walled garden and trees.

The village of Lisnagry is three and a half miles away. Shannon Airport is a 30-minute drive.
