Property Description

Hume Auctioneers- We Get The Pick Of The Crop.

Built by the Odlum family in 1905, this picture postcard residence is perhaps the prettiest house in Portlaoise. The National Inventory Of Architectural Buildings describes Wellfield as: "A key feature in the urban fabric of the town, the building greatly enhances and enriches the architectural heritage of Portlaoise."

From the street, the house is majestic. The decorative gabled open porch with slate roof, decorative timber bargeboard and finial, geometric timber framework and timber seat to either side is simply beautiful. The lawn is enclosed to street by cast-iron railing on a limestone ashlar plinth, cast-iron pedestrian gate with tall limestone ashlar pier to either end. Tall rubblestone wall encloses the lawn to west.

Inside the magnificent charm flourishes. Whilst the property will benefit from some modernisation, it has been extremely well maintained and boasts many stunning original period features.

The accommodation is extensive. With 3 large reception rooms on the ground floor, 5 massive bedrooms (2 on the top floor), a Victorian kitchen, pantry and utility, Wellfield is ideal for a growing family.

And whereas the residence is stunning, the gardens and outbuildings are jawdroppingly beautiful. The entire site extends to in excess of half an acre.

There is a small garden to the front and large garden to the side and rear which is mainly in lawn in addition to various raised beds, rockeries, pathways and shrubbery. There is also a greenhouse and glass house.

There is a limestone Coach House which would be ideal for conversion into a studio, granny flat, workshop or office in addition to 2 stables and a range of other outhouses.

The location is unrivalled. Wellfield is with a 10-minute walk of Portlaoise train station where commute time to Dublin Heuston is a leisurely 41 minutes. Schools, Shops, Leisure centres, Cinema, Theatre, Pubs, Restaurants and all amenities in this superb town are within walking distance.
