MOLUA, BIRDHILL ROAD, BAL­LINA/KILLALOE, CO TIP­PER­ARY €795,000

MOLUA oc­cu­pies a scenic lo­ca­tion on the banks of the Shan­non with views of the river, Par­teen Weir and the Clare hills. The prop­erty has its own pri­vate har­bour, boathouse, slip­way and ap­prox­i­mately 122m of wa­ter frontage. The house has well es­tab­lished gar­dens and has been de­signed to take full ad­van­tage of the panorama.

The main re­cep­tion rooms all have large pic­ture win­dows and ac­cess to a shel­tered ter­race which runs the length of the house. The ter­race is a sun trap, and is the best place for granny to sit and en­joy the ever-chang­ing views over the wa­ter, from sun­rise to sun­set.

At one end of the main house, which has 272sqm of liv­ing space, there is a spa room with Jacuzzi and dou­ble doors out to the gar­den.

A one-bed­room an­nex with di­rect ac­cess to the main house has a small kitchen, bath­room and sun porch.

In to­tal, Molua has 1.9 acres of gar­den, mainly in lawn and ma­ture wood­land in­ter­spersed with shrub­beries and flowerbeds. Ma­ture trees in­clude oak, beech, ash, wal­nut, hazel, alder and birch. The wood­land gar­den, which is pre­dom­i­nantly planted with herba­ceous peren­ni­als and shrubs, fea­tures or­na­men­tal trees such as mag­no­lia, dog­wood, Ja­panese maple, Daphne and stew­artia. Among the shrubs are un­usual spec­i­mens of rhodo­den­dron, hy­drangea and camel­lia. In late win­ter /early spring, the wood­land area is a ta­pes­try of snow­drops, daf­fodils, blue­bells, cro­cus and wood­land anemone. This is a low-main­te­nance gar­den cre­ated and de­vel­oped by the cur­rent own­ers over the last 20 years. There is also a much-loved tree-house. AGENT: Sav­ills (01) 663 4350
