See inside the beautifully restored house in the Co Louth countryside

The former parochial house in Kilcurry has gone on the market with a guide price of €630,000.

an expense has been spared in refurbishing ‘Calwood House’ at Balbriggan, creating a beautiful family home, full of character and charm, which is almost unrecognizable from the property that went on the market a couple of years ago.

According to the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage “This former parochial house, with its handsome red brick façade with fine yellow brick detailing and granite dressing, is built in the typical Victorian style, possibly more commonly seen in Irish towns and villages than on a quiet country roadside. Built as a parochial house the building was a focal point for the religious community of the locality and holds a social interest.”

This spacious house would be ideal for anyone who enjoys entertaining, with two large inter-linking reception rooms, with bay windows, double aspect windows, wooden floors, original fireplaces and coving. Sliding doors allow the rooms to be opened into one large space, ideal for parties. The family room, meanwhile, is a cozy affair with a stove.

A contemporary style kitchen and dining area has bay windows overlooking the surrounding countryside. There is also a utility room, walk-in larder and WC on the ground floor.

This charming house is finished to a very high standard of design and decorated with impeccable taste.

The property stands on a 0.75 acre sq.m. elevated site with mature trees, with garage and outbuildings to the rear.

It is located a short distance from Dundalk and the M1 motorway.
