The Old Schoolhouse, Ballyfeeney, Scramogue – lovingly restored to a magnificent home

This original schoolhouse at Ballyfeeney, Scramogue, Co. Roscommon is immersed in history and steeped in character that has been lovingly and tastefully restored into a magnificent showcase home that will awaken the nostalgia in all who enter it.   Situated in one of the most desirable locations in this region, the house overlooks panoramic views of the infamous Kilglass Lakes and surrounding countryside.   Perched on a generous half acre site that has been elegantly landscaped, the house is approached by a cobble-lock driveway that continues round the entire perimeter of the house.   The imagination and care which the current owner has incorporated into this restoration is immediately evident from the character-filled exterior to the luxury of the transformed interior.  The grandeur of the solid oak barnyard entrance doors to the double arched foyer which leads to the magnificent living area sets the tone for this entire home.   Character A solid pine vaulted ceiling with accent beams, original stone fireplace, solid wide plank flooring combined with luxurious window treatments and furnishings all contribute to this unique transformation.  The character oak fitted kitchen with rich granite work top and breakfast counter makes for a country kitchen haven.   Three luxuriously furnished bedrooms with a large master en-suite and a large family bathroom featuring the classic free-standing tub complete this beautiful home.    This showcase calibre home’s décor has been exclusively designed by the award winning Interior Designer, Jacqui Prior, most notably featured on RTE’s Showhouse.  This is, without doubt, a nostalgic piece of Irish history which has been given new life coupled with the most breathtaking scenic surroundings that can best be compared to a good book – once it captures your imagination, you will not want it to end.
