Byline: By Property Editor MICHELLE O'KEEFE

PRICE REGION: EUR695,000

GLOSNA House is a superb family period style house boasting exception views of the surrounding countryside.

It is nestled in its own land of around three acres close to the towns of Athy, Carlow and Portlaoise.

The property is approached through electric gates and has been extended and renovated extensively.

It has three reception rooms, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen.

The kitchen, dining room and main reception room have fossilised Mohar slate floors with solid oak beamed ceilings.

The house boasts stained glass windows by world renowned artist Graham Pentalow.

And a wooden staircase leads from the main reception room to the first floor landing.

The three Weavers' Cottages in natural stone are a lovely addition to the property. They sit at the side of the house and are currently used as a garage, an artist's studio with a pot belly stove and a fuel shed.

An acre of gardens lies behind the cottages and leads down to the river. Across the road opposite the house is an acre of woodland.

Glosna House can be dated back to the early 1800s. It passed through many families until the 1980s when major renovations began to transform the house into its current state.
