ONE OF MUNSTER’S most stunning period properties has come to the market, a five-bedroom country home set on 30 acres of grounds and gardens.

Carewswood House underwent a full interior update in 1996, and alongside the ornate cornicing, original fireplaces and oak flooring are plenty of modern conveniences like underfloor heating, oil-fired central heating and electronic gates.

It’s on sale for €2.8 million.

Covering 4,950 square feet of floor space, the property features four reception rooms downstairs: a dual-aspect drawing room, a dining room, a sitting room and a south-facing conservatory with stunning garden views.

When it comes to family living though, it’s the kitchen that is truly the heart of this property, with its tiled food preparation area, wood-panelled island unit and light-filled casual dining space.

Some of the kitchen’s state-of-the-art appliances include a beautiful green AGA stove, a Bosch double oven, granite work surfaces, a Samsung double fridge with ice-maker, and a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher.

The ground floor additionally includes an office, utility room, pantry and a fitted bar with glass shelving, hanging wine glass racks, counter space and stools. A games room and wine cellar are located on the basement level.
