ALTHOUGH it was built just 13 years ago, Hayfield in Croagh village has the style, grace, the high ceilings and many of the features of an earlier era.

Combining these with modern conveniences such as solar panels, underfloor heating and a Jacuzzi bath, it offers over 3,300 sq ft of tastefully decorated and very comfortable looking space.

Seeking offers of €575,000, Sherry FitzGerald O’Malley say this four-bed residence has been finished to a luxurious standard and is a type of trade-up property that’s in short supply in the Limerick area. 

Inside the Georgian-style door is a long high-ceilinged hallway with chandeliers, wainscoting, ceiling coving and doors which on each side lead into a bay- windowed oak-floored front sitting room. 

To the left is a red room with a high ceiling, cornicing and a fireplace and to the right, an elegant drawing room also with period- style feature decorated in neutral shades of cream and finished off with pale yellow curtains. 

Double doors at the back open into a formal dining room, also cream, with oak flooring and a fireplace. Across the hallway is a generously sized kitchen-breakfast room with red walls and cream country style units as well as a centre island and an Aga.

At the rear is a sunroom with French doors and a feature stone wall which makes it the most modern looking room in the house. At this level there’s also a study/playroom, a bathroom and a utility room. 

A bespoke staircase in the hall leads to the first floor which has a bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath and four cream carpeted bedrooms including two with en suites. 

A second staircase leads to the second floor which has two large rooms which are not included in the 3,370 sq ft floor area. One is used as an additional bedroom while the other is a family entertainment room with a cinema screen.

Outside Hayfield has a tarmac driveway and half an acre of lawned gardens with a detached garage and some mature trees. 

Located at Ballycannon, Croagh, the property is around six kilometres from shops and restaurants in Adare village and 25km from Limerick city.

Auctioneer Orla Sheehan believes that with its high standard of finish, meticulous decoration and high B3 BER rating, Hayfield will attract a lot of attention from trade-up buyers.

VERDICT: Spacious and elegant enough to tempt a city buyer.

We hear a lot about the geese, ducks and swans that arrive here from colder climes for the winter, but much less about smaller birds that come here to escape harsher conditions in northern Europe.Keep an eye out for redwings this winter
