Crotanstown House, a “substantial and gracious” 19th-century property, with accommodation in all extending to about 8,664 square feet, has been introduced to the market.
Savills is overseeing the sale of one of the Curragh’s famous racing lodges, which is guided at €1,850,000.
The double-fronted, two-storey Victorian house, with eight bedrooms, is situated within mature private grounds, while the south-facing setting enjoys “magnificent views” over the Curragh plains.
The house is entered through pillared bespoke electric gates which open onto a private tree-lined driveway leading to a gravelled parking area to the front of the house.
“An extensive programme of internal and external renovation has been carried out by the current owners, providing comfortable modern family day living and formal entertaining.”
The accommodation is laid out over two floors. An internal hall opens into the reception hall with access to a sitting room off this.
To the right, leads into the music room and drawing room and a handmade Hamptons conservatory, an addition to the house by the current owners which showcases stunning views over the gardens.
