LOCATED IN THE heart of the Midlands in Lanesborough, Co Longford, Viburnum House is packed with hotel-worthy features.

The four-bed residence was completed just last year and totals 3,595 sq ft. That square footage includes a home cinema, a jacuzzi, and even a kitchen garden outside.

It sits on a quiet site of 0.75 acres, with electric gates leading to the gravel driveway. The site is bordered by an original stone drywall on one side, and copper beech hedging on the other. 

The charming exterior of the property gives a taste of what’s to come, with local stone forming the archway of the front facade.

Stepping inside, Viburnum House strikes the balance between feeling luxurious and modern with that of a welcoming family home. This is evident from the moment you enter the hallway, with a dining room to the right and a sitting room to the left.

The dining room is beautifully designed, with a feature Swarovski chandelier, a built-in wall unit and room to seat at least eight at the table.

Across the hall in the sitting room, this space acts as the lavish home cinema, complete with a deep-pile carpet and a custom-made, double-sided log fire. A projector hangs from the ceiling, while the large movie screen can be neatly rolled away above the fire, making it easy to transform this room from a home cinema into a relaxing lounge.

Moving to the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area, this space is 43 ft in length. The kitchen is a home cook’s dream, with bespoke units, a solid walnut centre island and a double sink. Appliances are discreetly built-in and match the style of the kitchen, while there’s plenty of storage in the cabinets and pantry cupboards. Picture windows look out to the garden and fill the space with natural light.

In the dining area, the other side of the built-in log fire from the sitting room is here, while French doors open to the rear garden. Out here, there’s a walled patio with a fireplace – making for the perfect spot to dine al fresco or stargaze. There’s also a kitchen garden to grow your own vegetables and herbs, as well as a polytunnel. Homeowners can enjoy their own fruit, too, with planted trees including apple, pear and plum.

A walnut and glass staircase leads to the first floor, where all four bedrooms and en suite bathrooms are located. The master bedroom is particularly impressive, with a walk-in closet, walnut furniture and a spa-like en suite bathroom, complete with the two-person jacuzzi, an infrared sauna and a walk-in rain shower.  

Lastly, an open-plan space on the second floor completes the accommodation. This would make for an ideal home office, den or guest bedroom, allowing the new owners to update the space as their needs change.
