This traditional stone property with beautifully manicured gardens is on the market for €245,000

Updated to cater to the demands of modern life, the property still maintains all of its old-world charm and character. 

Over 200 years old, Stonebridge House in Creggs, Co Roscommon, is steeped in history. A unique property that has been lovingly restored and renovated over the years, this beautiful detached residence comes to market in very good condition. 

This property comprises a two-storey, three-bed residence with a large main shed which contains a wood-burning stove and has both electricity and running water. The grounds also feature two large polytunnels with electricity and wifi and a water and a garden shed. Inside, the accommodation features a ground-floor living/dining room, a kitchen, one bedroom and the family bathroom. Two further bedrooms can be found on the first floor along with a large balcony, a bathroom and a large landing with a comfortable sitting/reading area.

Internally this property boasts a host of features including underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The property’s main access is via a tarmacadam driveway leading to a gravel-stoned parking area.

The front door opens onto a brightly lit entrance hall that leads to the kitchen. A spacious room with ample storage and counter space, it features an inbuilt double electric oven, induction hob and combination microwave. The bathroom on this level has been fully tiled and also features underfloor heating. 

Elsewhere on the ground floor is the living room. Exposed stone walls and a traditional wood-burning stove are amongst this room’s most notable features. The downstairs bedroom has tiled wood effect flooring and panelled wood walls. 

Upstairs, the landing has been carpeted for cosiness and is privy to some of the best views of the Suck Valley Way below. Designed as a reading nook, it’s the perfect place to curl up with a book in the evenings. 

Two other bedrooms can be found on this level – one with a south-facing balcony – along with another bathroom.  

Conveniently located just 15 minutes from Roscommon Town, Stonebridge House is nestled on approximately 0.86 acres of land and comes with its own outbuildings included in the sale. The gardens are beautifully manicured and have been planted with fruit, vegetables and flowers. For fishing enthusiasts, the property is adjacent to the Derryhippo River, a small tributary of the River Suck, which is laden with several species of fish. 

The main house has been fully insulated with sheep wool and the roof has also recently been redone. Heating can be controlled manually or by way of a phone app and the property also features double-glazed windows and new composite doors. The property has a C2 BER rating.  

Currently on the market for €245,000, viewing is recommended and can be arranged Sherry FitzGerald P. Burke. In the meantime, take a virtual tour of this gorgeous property in the gallery below.
