Boasting 4,600 Sq. ft. of sheer luxury and set on a private mature site of c. 1/2 acre, this amazing home is one of the finest ever built in the county Every inch of Clahane House was handbuilt by master craftsmen using only the finest materials sourced from antique shops, salvage yards and specialist providers from every corner of Ireland and the UK. With pitch pine floors from an old church in Manchester, granite from Connemara and paving brick imported from Leicestershire, no detail was spared in the creation of this magnificent family home. Approached through electric gates along a winding driveway of quarried paving brick, the beautiful residence is truly breath-taking on first view. The front double doors open up to an amazing reception hall with one of the finest handmade bifurcated staircases you will ever see. This same qualities continues throughout the 5 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms of this very special home. The fireplaces are antique, floors are salvaged and reclaimed timbers and bathrooms are of the finest sanitary ware. The handmade kitchen is a masterpiece of craftsmanship with amazing detailing and spectacular finishes right down to the stone worktops. Outside the gardens are superbly mature. With Connemara granite walls, cast-iron lampposts and two superb detached garages, this is as complete a garden as anyone could wish for.
