Period Property for Sale in Co. Offaly

Strawberry Hill House, Cloghan, Co. Offaly
Exquisite fully restored 16th century monastery, now tastefully transformed into a luxury family home

This exquisite fully restored 16th century monastery has been tastefully transformed into a luxury family home. The residence stands on 52 acres and has an overall floor area of c. 5600 sq ft. The period architecture with its pointed gothic windows and doors bring forth the character of this house.

Its elegant interior is filled with antiques, curios, paintings and the most impressive stately period fireplaces adorning each and every room. When you enter through the gothic door of the house, you are transported to a world of calm. There is a very warm, restful, therapeutic feel to this house that is not prevalent amongst most period houses.

What must also be noted of this stunning home is the potential it offers for further expansion. The current owners along with their architects have drafted an ambitious plan to transform this stunning home into a luxury hotel and spa with 14 residential units. This would entail an extensive c.54,000 sq ft extension consisting of 88 bedrooms, two function rooms, a spa area, 14 residential units and 100 car parking spaces. Full plans and specifications are available for inspection at the offices of Orla Gleeson in Tullamore (details below).
