Villa | 10 bedrooms | sleeps 22
If panoramic views, spacious accommodation and luxurious living are on your list of 'must-haves' when looking for a holiday rental, then Ceaparana (ceaparana.ie) in Co Tipperary, is just for you. This is the ultimate property for a family gathering, small wedding, special occasion or get-together of a large group of friends.
Nestled in 130 acres of private grounds, Ceaparana is a unique modern, 10,000 sq.ft. residence located on the shores of Lough Derg with a capacity for up to 22 people. Built to exacting standards, the property is the result of the ingenuity of its previous Swiss owner.
Ceaparana comprises mature gardens and woodland, enjoying magnificent views of the lake. Ideal for boating enthusiasts, it also includes a private deep-water harbour and boat house with full use of Ireland's Shannon Waterway.
The house itself is built over 3 levels, finished to a high specification with underfloor oil-fired central heating. The ground floor comprises a large open-plan living and dining area with spacious conservatory, kitchen, WC, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The living room has a unique chalet style, wraparound wood burning fireplace with ample comfortable seating and large plasma TV with satellite channels. Within the same room, the custom-built large wooden dining table can accommodate up to 20 people all within the backdrop of Lough Derg through the large windows surrounding the living area.
The large kitchen, also overlooking the lake, has an Aga style oil fired range, providing a wonderful cosy atmosphere both during the summer and winter months, plus the most perfect round table with built in seating. There is also a wooden steak/pizza BBQ built into the kitchen providing a unique cooking experience.
Just off the kitchen is the real gem; a fully glazed conservatory/sun room which can be completely opened with the doors drawing right back. This is a fantastic place to have meals but also to relax in the warm south facing aspect.
The top floor comprises 5 extensive, newly renovated en-suite bedrooms, 3 of which have panoramic views of the lake below. These rooms are truly spacious and full of natural light.
The garden level of the house comprises 3 further bedrooms and two bathrooms, two games rooms (one with Nintendo Wii and the other with a snooker table and table football), a modern sauna room including jacuzzi and cold tub, laundry room and wine cellar/store room.
The garden and grounds are extensive. There is a lighted Bocce court, which can ignite some great family rivalries, a lighted path through the trees to the lake shore area which has a further BBQ area overlooking the private harbour and boathouse. Along the 1 mile lake frontage, there is a wooded path and fantastic exploring for children.
Situated 7 kilometres from Dromineer and just 12 kilometres from Nenagh, Ceaparana is less than 45 minutes drive from Limerick City and two hours from Dublin. Shannon Airport lies just 75 kilometres from the property, which has direct flights to the US and UK.
