Property Summary


To say I was intrigued when I approached Gleann Alainn for the first time is an understatement – what an amazing property, the shear size of the house, the manicured gardens, with a stream at its boundary, balconies throughout the house, double garage, lands around it for added privacy. All you can hear is the birds and the stream, its just a haven, a sanctuary.

The house was built nearly 30 years  and is 4317 sq.ft on up to 4.5 acres of land. It’s ideal for a family, run your business from home, work from home, enable parents to live in near proximity but separately as well as teenagers. There are two potential sites there as well. Options are endless.

The way the house is designed is of its era and could very easily be adapted to today’s living. Chocolate and avocado bathroom suites, tiles, staircase are just some of its attributes.

On approach you are greeted with a large glass porch, then into the really 70’s design hall with a fantastic staircase. the house is in on 3 floors and in two sections ( if you like) with a double garage and enormous room over head attached to the house. when in the hall you branch off to the utility room and in turn to the garage, bedroom 1 with ensuite and guest Loo.

Go downstairs – kitchen/dining room with a picture window looking out onto the garden and of course  Stanley stove of its time. Then into the dining room, sitting room with a stove and patio doors to the veranda.

Go back to the main entrance hall and go upstairs to the master bedroom with ensuite, sitting room with a stove and again patio doors to the enormous balcony overlooking the amazing grounds. You also have an airing cupboard.

Go back downstairs ( bottom floor) and you will enter a big sitting room with patio doors to the veranda but overhead is a gallery overlooking this room which is connects to the other section of the house. You can enter the other section from the sitting room as well – basically there are 4 bedrooms with balconies and 2 bathroom and also access to the big room over the garage and a separate storage room with the water tanks etc.

Services are oil central heating, main water and a septic tank. The BER rate is C3. All the windows are PVC double glazed and in good condition. The roof is tiled and seems to be fine as well.

Yes, the house is a bit complicated hence intriguing so you would definitely have to view twice. The house is just amazing and offers immense scope and has enormous potential, yes it needs work but one you would enjoy recreating and rejuvenating.

Glouthaune itself has been given a fantastic facelift – walking and cycling routes. You are only minutes to the City and airport, there are local schools in the area and of course local amenities such as the train station.

An absolute must to see – enjoy
