Stormont House Castleconnell: Limerick

Stormont House is set on approximately 6 acres. Originally a three-storey property, it was initially refurbished around 50 years ago when, because it was in such poor condition, the owners were advised to take the roof off, which they did, creating an art deco-style neo-Georgian house. They then decided to turn the house upside down to take full advantage of the magnificent river views from the living rooms and kitchen while still having a wonderful castle and river views from the 4 spacious bedrooms. They subsequently created an annexe unit beside the garage and attached it to the main house by transforming the original stable house into living accommodation. The waterside setting is incredible and the sound of the flowing river is unmistakable when one steps outside the front door of the house.

In 2018 the owners were granted full planning to completely refurbish the existing structure and while the house is presently in turn-key condition, the new owners will also have the opportunity to create an extraordinary c. 7000 square foot house on the curtilage of the existing structure - the new planning joins the annexe to the main house over 2 floors and creates a truly magnificent opportunity to build a dream house on one of the finest riverside sites in the country. The new planning would create an extra c. 306m2.

On approach, traversing the winding tree-lined driveway, as you pass the Castle on the right and the river Shannon on the left, you are instantly transported to a serene escape away from the hustle and bustle of city life, which is ironic considering Stormont is only 15km from Limerick City Centre, 10km from the University of Limerick and a stone's throw from the M7.

This home oozes character and charm and it underwent a significant refurbishment last year prior to going on the market. This is a family home with warm welcoming tones and elegant décor throughout. The house is entered via proud concrete steps to double wooden doors with glass panels and almost full-length glass panes at either side.

Beyond the front door, you are welcomed into a large bright hallway, which in itself acts as a reception room due to its size and aspect. The uninterrupted river views from here are outstanding. There is a feature marble open fireplace and wood flooring. Through the corridor is the kitchen, with more stunning river views, it is fully fitted with a range of units, an island, granite worktops and a range. There is a beautiful living room to the right of the kitchen, its dual-aspect windows provide light throughout the day and the superb river views create a beautifully peaceful and calming living space. The westerly views in this room, create an enviable space to enjoy the evening sunsets. It has a magnificent original fireplace and the archway shows that it was once directly accessed via the kitchen. The Dining Room to the rear has hosted many soirees over the years and sits to the rear of the house overlooking the woodlands which separates it from Island House and of course the river. More fantastic views from this room!

The ground floor comprises 4 bedrooms. The rear entranceway leads to the back courtyard, annexe buildings and garages. The downstairs hall leads to the Master with an Ensuite and Walk-in wardrobe and to 3 further double rooms, one with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe and the main family bathroom. The annexe or 'the archways' as it is known, originally 3 stables now houses a further bedroom, small kitchen and further living accommodation overlooking the garden. There is a large garage, storage and wood shed all set around the courtyard to create an attractive and charming yard space.
