Hollymount House sits in an elevated position on 2 acres of landscaping gardens that overlook magnificent views of the surrounding areas. It is easy on the eyes and ravishing to the core; this home is a perfect amalgamation of classic 1800 architectural elements with modern open design and stylish interiors. The choice of materials and stonework used for the interior design with rich refined decor that fits the existing setting perfectly it provides this home with a sense of aura that can only be described as €Divine€TM The homeowners have invested time, effort, and love in making this such an articulated home that is flooded in history and family memories.

This idyllic property consists of 6 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, (2 Ensuites), 2 Reception Rooms, Study, Substantial Attic Conversion complete with recess lights and skylights, that makes this room so bright and breath-taking.

There are so many features throughout this home to include all internal doors are wooden latch doors, the use of exposed stone wall throughout the property and the thickness of the external walls, the property has been upgraded but the homeowners have preserved the beautiful character of this period home and there is a clear indication between the old and the new and they have used personal laden fixtures and fittings to add decorative flourishes that stop the property from looking too historic. The furniture, materials, and interior design frame the interior that exude a sense of tranquility that is hard to replicate.

The confidence with the interior spills to the surrounding exterior as the property sits on a commanding and elevated 2-acre site, surrounded by a blanket of mature trees with inspiring views of the countryside. It has its own distinctive sense of space, which is hidden from the road and complimented with its sweeping and decorative gravel driveway, featured manicured lawns, that pop with colour, complete with wrap around hedging and high trees which provides seclusion and privacy that is balanced with the benefits of having neighbours and all local amenities close by.

Hollymount House has been designed to have an impact and offers something for everyone. With its selection of impressive outbuildings, stables, garden shed and boiler house, and even for green fingers of the family a stunning Greenhouse.

Location is second to none and is ideally located just off the R445, only 4km from Roscrea Town, 2km from the famous Ballaghmore Castle, 2km from Roscrea Golf Club, 10 minutes from Borris-In- Ossory in which access can be sought from both Roscrea and Borris In Ossory to the M7 Motorway. In addition, there is also a train service to Dublin each day from Roscrea and both nearby Ballybrophy and Templemore Railway Stations have approx. eight options daily from 6.30 am to late each evening, providing great commuting options. Dublin is an hour and a half away and Limerick City including University of Limerick, & the Regional Hospital are just 55 minutes€TMdrive away.

Certainly, the homeowners have put their imprint on Hollymount house to make this a joyous and unforgettable home but now they are ready to downsize and hand it over to the next worthy owner, so that the next chapter can continue with endless possibilities and memories.
