With mansion, horse barn and 25 acres, stunning hobby farm has it all

BALLYOGAN HOUSE is not a property for the average buyer, even if the guide price is half of what it would have been in the boom.

A 21st century mansion, an immaculate American horse barn, and 25 acres are included in this property package, located at Barefield, just outside of Ennis in Co Clare.

The eight-year old two-storey residence is a highly unusual design, including a gull-wing projection that provides a triple-height sunroom, with triple aspect too.

It comes with the huge barn, six stables, tack and store rooms, a double garage and a floodlit sand arena.

The low-key country chic house covers 4,300 square feet of space, with six bedrooms, a range of living rooms and that funky sun-room.

It is well finished, with a bright, big kitchen area with oak shaker units and at its centre, with a large island/dining-table and quality appliances. It connects to the family room, sun-room, and outside to a sandstone patio with pergola, connecting to a barbecue area in the lawn.

Surrounding woodland comprises three-quarters of the land, offering great playing space for children and hacking trails for horses.

Ballyogan House comes with high-level insulation, solar panels, under-floor heating, pressurised hot water and a central vacuum system.

On the market with Diarmuid McMahon of Sherry FitzGerald McMahon for offers in the region of €850,000, the house ticks all the boxes for a high-end, family home with horsy extras.

Two miles from the Ennis bypass, Ballyogan House is also accessible from the M18 Crusheen bypass.
