Sleehaun House is a unique six bedroom detached period property. This stunning property rests in a private and enviable location just off the N55 offering endless commercial and private development possibilities.

The property once belonged to the Fox family of nearby Foxhall which is since demolished. The house itself is an integral part of the heritage of the area. There exists on the gable apex a carved coat of arms in stone which is a feature of some artistic merit and is thought to be the crest of the original family that built the house in c.1700.

It has a completely refurbished and insulated roof with new traditional blue banger slates and internally has been part renovated with work also having been carried out on the elegant high features and ceilings. This superior ‘Gentleman’s Residence’ with it’s vast potential is positioned well back on a quiet access avenue set in mature grounds to the southeast of Ardagh and to the northwest of Legan in the heart of the Irish Midlands.

Sleehaun House retains the charm and grandeur of a traditional period residence with original sash windows and feature fireplaces in many of the rooms. The expansive six bedroom house offers spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. The entrance hall makes a statement with original Queen Anne doors and impressive feature winder staircase. The ground floor has two generous formal reception rooms with feature fireplaces, paneling, high ceilings and beautiful country views in a bright space. The original kitchen area offers great potential for a fantastic family kitchen, utility and living area.

Upstairs is split level with three bedrooms including period features, high ceilings and neutral decor and three further additional bedrooms, which could also be utilized for a number of uses such as ensuite bathrooms, dressing rooms or indeed guest accommodation and living space. The landing is bright and well proportioned. The overall floor area is approx 3,200 sq ft.

To the rear of the property are several out buildings which could be converted to any use. The house links seamlessly with the gardens and wider setting. The linking to the garden is exemplified by the abundance of windows offering views to the surrounding countryside. The property rests on a folio of mature grounds of c.2.3 Acres and also offers a traditional orchard in a beautiful setting. Sleehaun House offers potential for a fantastic family residence or investment opportunity in a wonderful peaceful and tranquil country location.
