Full description:

An impeccable and elegant period residence with one of the most recognised addresses in Ireland located in the heart of the picturesque town of birr in the faithful county of Offaly.

Built in the 1820's as part of the development of Oxmantown Mall from the new castle gates to the new Church of Ireland, the property was fully restored in 1992 and is opposite Birr Theatre and Arts Centre where you can enjoy all drama, dance, opera and comedy performances as well as the continually unfolding joys of Birr Castle gardens and parkland all year round.

This impeccable period home is probably one of the finest examples of a restored Georgian townhouse in Ireland, true to it's original form. Original marble fireplaces, sash windows, superbly proportioned rooms, ornate front door case and fanlight, and supremely elegant decor, define it as an exceptional home. The entrance hall with its pitch pine flooring and feature staircase is a warm welcome. The breathtaking dining room is just off the hallway and makes for a very inviting entertaining room with feature marble fireplace, high ceilings, Doric columns and it enjoys aspects to both the Mall and the rear courtyard. There are two fine guest bedrooms also on this level wonderfully finished, one complete with en suite.

The beautiful feature staircase leads to the first floor return with a family bathroom just off it, and the impressive interior continues to a beautiful drawing room at first floor level. This magnificent room has a number of features including detailed gothic coving and a stunning white marble fireplace. The present owners have so cleverly installed a Victorian dumb waiter, encased in a mahogany case, which travels from the drawing room, through the dining room before it reaches the kitchen. The large master bedroom, home to a beautiful four poster bed, with views again onto the Mall, also has a spacious ensuite and unique double depth dressing room.

The lower ground floor is where the heart of the home is. There is a wonderful family warmth to this floor with large kitchen complete with Aga and a relaxed TV area to one end, complimented by a walk in pantry & utility room, coupled with the essential wine cellar. There is a separate study/tv room/music room at this level also, and a further guest bedroom again with ensuite completes the accommodation.

The courtyard to the rear is entered through double electric gates for secure parking and great privacy. The original coachouses have been restored and provide excellent storage, with endless possibilities for additional accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consent. On leaving the Courtyard one passes through to the stunning formal gardens quite possibly one of the finest private gardens in this region.
