Constructed in 1975, Laburnum House stretches over an approximate floor area of 163 square meters (1,754 square feet). Its striking stone elevations and arched veranda impart a sense of grandeur and history. This unique dwelling is set within approximately 0.509 acres of meticulously planned and lovingly maintained elevated gardens, offering a stunning vista over the town of Roscrea.

The current layout of Laburnum House includes a ground floor featuring an entrance hallway, a large sitting room and dining room, a cosy living room, and a kitchen equipped with a comfortable dining area that overlooks the scenic back garden. Additionally, the ground floor houses a utility room, a practical ground floor shower room, an external boiler room, and an integrated carport for two large cars, providing direct access to the house.

Upstairs, the first floor comprises five generously sized bedrooms, a family bathroom with hotpress, and a separate WC. The versatility of these rooms allows potential buyers to remodel them into en suite bedrooms, should they require fewer than five bedrooms.

One of the most compelling aspects of this property is its potential to qualify for the Vacant Homes Refurbishment Grant for owner occupiers, which can amount to as much as €50,000, along with retro-fit grants from SEAI. This opportunity is invaluable for those looking to customise their home while future-proofing its services and reducing running costs.

The house’s location is equally impressive. Situated just a five-minute walk from Roscrea town centre and a brief drive from the M7 motorway, Laburnum House combines the tranquillity of rural living with the convenience of urban access. Dublin is a mere hour and a half drive away, while Limerick City and its notable institutions are within fifty minutes.

Educational opportunities in the area are abundant, with a variety of highly respected primary and secondary schools in proximity, including Colaiste Phobal, Cistercian College, Ursuline Convent, Thurles, and the Presentation Convent Thurles. Added to this, a dedicated local bus service facilitates daily commutes to these schools.

For leisure and lifestyle, the area offers golf clubs, tennis clubs, gyms, and opportunities for fishing on Lough Derg and hillwalking in the Slieve Blooms. The convenience of daily train services to Dublin from Roscrea, Ballybrophy, and Templemore Stations enhances the property’s appeal as a commuter-friendly location.

Laburnum House, currently a blank canvas with all fittings removed, awaits its new owners to impart their personal touch and make it a bespoke family home. It’s an ideal property for a growing family or those seeking a peaceful retirement away from the city’s hustle. With its unique charm, stunning location, and immense potential, Laburnum House is not just a property, it’s a lifestyle waiting to be embraced.
