Kingspan boss selling Louth mansion with pool for €1.45m

Kingspan boss Gene Murtagh is selling his spacious mansion on the Ardee Road, Dundalk for a cool €1.45m. 

Ballybarrack House is a spacious family home incorporating all modern conveniences, whilst retaining the charm and grandeur of a period home.  

The main house extends to 5,683 sq.ft / 528 sq.m (approx.) of living space, comprising 3 reception rooms and 5 large bedrooms. Beautifully positioned on an elevated position overlooking its own pleasure grounds with landscaped gardens of approx. 2.5 acres and a further approx. 24.25 acres available of pasture lands, with commanding views over the countryside with Dundalk Town, Dundalk Bay and Cooley Mountain range on the horizon.

A spacious light filled home with superbly proportioned rooms incorporating excellent details including ceiling coving in the formal rooms and feature fireplaces throughout.

A large reception hall, complete with restored pitch pine flooring, connects to all the principal reception rooms, and to the first floor from an impressive feature staircase, gloriously lit from a large window with stain glass trimming on the landing return.

The light-filled drawing room, with its dual aspect, is a wonderful entertaining room and has excellent views of the surrounding countryside.

The dining room is a superb formal room for special occasions, while the family room is ideal for relaxing in.

The kitchen, at the heart of the house, has a very homely atmosphere and the addition of the sunroom to the rear, with its wood-burning stove, makes this area a warm and welcoming family space. The sunroom links very well with the gardens and courtyard with folding doors on either side, making this room a wonderful entertaining space for the summer evenings. A utility room, pantry and family bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

15 x 5 metre outdoor heated swimming pool
Omni court/savanna tennis court
2.5 acres of mature landscaped gardens
Guest accommodation in the courtyard properties

The home is being sold by Sherry Fitzgerald. See their website for more information:
