DescriptionThis wonderful bungalow has been perfectly restored by the current owner. It is now a deeply comfortable, snug and unique country retreat.
The location is approx. 11 kilometres from Birr, 29 from Roscrea, and 15 from Portumna. A long private avenue approaches the house and it is surrounded by the most breath taking gardens, all tended to organically.
The house has been re-created by hand and accommodation throughout is in perfect condition and lists as follows; Entrance porch, Sitting room with wood burning stove, kitchen cum dining room, utility room, study, five bedrooms, two bathrooms and an artist's studio.
The large grounds also has the ruins of two most likely famine cottages located to the rear which are ideal now for restoration.
The years of organic farming have created a haven for wildlife and nature. There is a fruit garden, a herbaceous border, a vegetable garden with polytunnell, mature trees, and a rear paddock.
For someone seeking a rural retreat in a quiet but beautiful setting, this could be the one for you.
