Lara House

Ballon. Carlow

Lara House, Ballon, Co Carlow is a house of many periods, part believed to date from the eighteenth century or earlier, but predominantly early nineteenth century (c.1810) with late nineteenth century additions. Comprising two storeys, the house is of Granite construction with rendered finish. Inside the rooms provide graceful and well proportioned accommodation benefitting from complete restoration while retaining period charm.

The location of Larah House is exceptional with wonderful views to the Leinster, Wicklow and Blackstairs mountains, where glimpses of Wales can be seen on a fine day. In the seventies the house became uninhabited and remained so for a number of years only relatively recently benefiting from restoration and extension by interior designer Helene Broderick.
