Once the centre of a vast estate, this eight bed luxury home in Ballinameen, close to Boyle in County Roscommon, is now on the market for €320,000.

This period house is steeped in local history and was once at the centre of a vast estate of many thousands of acres of land. It was originally built by the famous Irwin Family around 1610 and still retains many characteristic architectural features of the period. The property is also surrounded by 24 acres of land with many mature trees. The original main entrance avenue bridges the Camlin River which is running through the property whilst there is also a separate entrance at the back of the estate.

The property is currently in the process of restoration and to date there are new windows and floors throughout, along with a recently restored roof. With further development potential, it would be suitable for use as a stud farm or horse riding centre and also includes provision for a heli-pad. The accommodation is spread over four floors, with each floor containing an incredible 1,000 square foot of floor space. The basement boasts a large wine cellar, while the ground floor consists of a number of reception rooms. The first floor contains several large bedroom suites and the attic can be used as storage or as further bedrooms. Each floor offers magnificent views onto the surrounding grounds and rural landscapes.
