Plenty to ‘Croagh about’ near Adare

A SIMPLE, period property with 17.5 acres of land could make the perfect hobby farm, especially as it’s just outside Croagh in Co Limerick and close to the village of Adare.

One of the most sought-after and salubrious addresses in the county, (witness the most recent €12 million sale of Winterwood House, Adare, a mansion built by developer, Robert Butler), the commute to Limerick is short and on good roads, which is a strong attraction.

And while Old Court, Croagh isn’t in the billionaire class, it’s a property in very good condition and one which provides four bedrooms and good reception rooms.

However, there is the option of extending the house, as there’s plenty of room all round, and the land is also suitable for a site or sites, says Tom Crosse of GVM Limerick, who’s handling the sale.

He describes it as a ‘truly outstanding residential roadside holding’ that comes with top quality pasture land.

Extensive road frontage is also included and the farm is laid out in three, good divisions, with private water supply.

Set on mature grounds and with a lovely long driveway from the road, the house comes with a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, four bedrooms and a main bathroom.

The guide price for the entire property is in the region of €550,000.

Final offers are being accepted until tomorrow, Friday October 31.
