A stunning period property is on the market in Offaly.
The Old Rectory, Mountpleasant, Blueball is a period, part two-storey detached residence of circa 3,300 sq.ft.
It has been beautifully restored and maintained with the utmost attention to detail. The property has a projecting bow front with round slate roof to front and multi-pitched slate roofs throughout. There are five prominent chimney breasts, and double-glazed sash windows throughout.
Built in stages from the late seventeenth century, it was extensively and sensitively refurbished from 1998 to 2003. It has a geothermal heating system throughout with underfloor heating on the ground floor. Cooking and domestic hot water is by an oil-fired Aga cooker.
The property is designed for self-sufficiency, having its own deep water well, complemented by soft rain-water harvesting from the rear roof, a wind turbine for electricity generation and an extensive vegetable garden with polygreen tunnel, all on one acre.
