John Earley, of Property Partners Earley is this week offering for sale one of Roscommon’s landmark properties – Gate House Lodge located adjacent to Roscommon Golf Course.
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a unique property situated just outside Roscommon town and adjacent to Roscommon Golf Course. The Lodge was built circa 1859 by Lord Crofton as a gatehouse to his Mote Park estate. It has been completely renovated over the past ten years, blending traditional features with modern living.
The Lodge was built by Lord Crofton (Sir Edward Crofton) as a Gate House during an extension to the Mote Park Crofton Estate in an area known at the time as ‘Rose Hill’. It was the last of the gatehouses to be built at entrances to the estate and provided gated access to the Roscommon Avenue. The property is locally referred to as ‘Salter’s Lodge’ due to the previous long ownership by the Salter family.
This property is conveniently located beside Golf Club and walking distance from Roscommon town and boasts cut stone exterior. The interior is restored to the highest standard whilst retaining a number of original features. There is an open plan kitchen, dining and living area, solid oak floors, solid oak doors and porcelain tiling throughout, a fitted oak kitchen with range of built-in appliances including a Neff oven.
There are three well-proportioned bedrooms (master bedroom with ensuite wet room), low voltage spotlights and feature lighting throughout, under floor heating with economical geo-thermal heat pump, an installed security system and laid lawns adjacent to golf course. There is also a stone-cut shed at rear of property housing geo-thermal heat pump.
This is an exclusive property to come on the market and the auctioneer invites viewings and offers.
