A historic 19th century property near Newtownforbes has been added to the local property market in recent weeks.
Lios na Bó house, which is located in the townland of Lisnabo, has been listed with an asking price of €289,500.
Built in 1815 as a Church of Ireland school and the residence of its school master, it was converted to a residential property following the school’s clsoure in 1965.
This unique property is set amidst approximately four acres of rolling paddocks, bounded by hedging and mature native trees in a private setting and presents a wonderful opportunity for the discerning buyer.
While it requires substantial refurbishment, Lios na Bó House offers generously proportioned accommodation, extending to approximately 330 square metres (3,552square feet), kitchen with AGA cooker, three reception rooms and two additional rooms - formerly used as a waiting room and doctor’s surgery - and seven bedrooms spread over two wings.
Access to the house, stable yard and paddocks is via a double curved avenue. The stable yard retains its original stone-built stables and stone barn. This property could lend itself to a number of uses, and is perfect for a family home, or home/business combined.
Lios na Bó House and its environs offer country living at its best, close to the recently restored Royal Canal, which meanders through the beautifully kept villages of Clondra and Killashee, Lough Forbes, and the River Shannon in Tarmonbarry.
