One of the finest houses in all of County Laois, this dramatically beautiful family residence is a design masterpiece situated on a spectacular 2.5-acre site overlooking the regal Rock Of Dunamaise.

Boasting immense kerb appeal, the crunch gravel driveway leading to the imposing stone façade announces a home of great distinction.

The property sits beautifully within its majestic surrounds, and is surrounded by mature professionally landscaped lawns, resplendent with sun-drenched decking, play and patio areas.

Step through the leaded glass entrance and into the amazing double height reception hall. Even your wildest expectations will be exceeded. This room complete with its stunning bespoke staircase, feature brick walls and quality hardwood joinery confirm that this truly is one of the finest homes ever built in the entire region.

Off the entrance hall is a spectacular living space, the true heart of the home. A massive kitchen and dining area with a gorgeous conservatory style sitting room entreats you to sit, relax and enjoy. With picture windows all around enjoying the breath-taking scenery, this is a room that will enthral you for years.

The beautiful hardwood oak kitchen enjoys a spectacular array of handmade cabinets and units with superb detail and quality. The workspace is exceptional and with a large rangemaster cooker, double American fridge and glorious views across the rolling countryside, this space is a cook's paradise.

Off the kitchen is a fully appointed utility room, (bigger than many kitchens), and a most useful ground floor WC.

To the front of the house is a second sitting room. This room is beautifully appointed with hardwood floors, high ceilings, recessed lighting and a beautiful open fireplace. Once again it is superbly lit by feature picture windows.

The wonderful ground floor office is also superbly appointed. Overlooking the attractive lawns with dual aspect windows, the only problem here is the views might distract even the most diligent worker.

The property enjoys a self-contained one-bedroom residence on the ground floor. This space is ideal for older or younger family members seeking independent living. At present the space is self-contained with its own external access and a minor adjustment can revert it seamlessly to once again be incorporated into the ground floor accommodation of the main residence.

Ascend the beautiful staircase and a beautiful family space awaits. On this floor there are four stunning double bedrooms. The master bedroom is divine. With a massive walk-in wardrobe and a superbly appointed ensuite, everything is laid on. The second and third bedrooms also enjoy full double sized ensuites, whilst the fourth is a massive double. A spectacular family bathroom completes this floor. All bathroom and ensuites boast Merlyn shower enclosures and fully pressurized hot and cold-water system throughout the house.

The main bathroom with luxury fittings, designer jacuzzi bath, separate shower and bespoke furniture including double washstand basins, this room is exceptional. Add in the massive picture window with one of the best views in the county overlooking vistas across Laois, Kildare, Dublin and as far away as Wicklow, this is a room you will never forget.

The entire floor here is appointed to extraordinary levels. A galleried balcony and overall high-end craftsmanship create a lever of pure luxury.

The bespoke stairs continue to the third floor. Here there are three large rooms. Each has a Velux window and offers extensive storage, work or recreation space.

Outside the landscaping is meticulous. A selection of beautiful lawns offers great space for a growing family. With patios, lawns and decking area, the entire combines to create a space of immense relaxation.

A large steel Shanette workshop/ shed complete with power, roller door and concrete floors offers a superb opportunity for workshop/ office/ gym/ car garage or just excellent storage.

Perhaps the great surprise with this property is the sheer extent of its size, stretching to almost 2.6 Acres, the property includes a beautiful paddock to the rear, ideal for a large vegetable patch, pony or playing field.
