DescriptionRESIDENCE ON C.1O ACRES
FOR SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY
This is a truly impressive family home built in the1900’s & purchased in 2004 by the current owners. Since then, the property was re-roofed & extended to the rear in 2012, an extension was also added to the side containing a fabulous kitchen which looks out on to the wonderful garden and where one can enjoy the tremendous views of the surrounding countryside.
This home has been beautifully maintained and is presented in excellent condition throughout. Sitting on c.10 acres, with a c.2 acre Orchard across the road from the house – this would be an amazing site S.P.P. There’s a c.2½ acre field across the road from the gated entrance to the yard, where a stream meanders through and around the field featuring a pond in the centre; a pure haven of tranquillity. There’s a polytunnel at the top part of the field with water overhead and electricity, there are also a few apple trees and a chicken coop. The well & pump are sited in this field also. This is a fantastic setting with the mature trees and the streams.
The main property has two entrance gates, one on to the yard and the main entrance has electric gates leading onto a driveway, with lawn and mature shrubbery to the left as you drive down toward the house / yard. There are two fields to the right with post and rail fencing. This is a most fabulous setting as you drive in, with the wonderful views such as Campion Castle to the right and Clontubrid Castle behind you. This property is something different; there are a number of hidden areas to retreat to – if you’re a keen gardener there’s an abundance of lawn / trees / shrubbery to attend to, plenty of space for a vegetable plot. Even if you just want to enjoy the peace and serenity, there’s no place better than this.
Once inside this amazing home, one can appreciate how the owners have retained many of the original features throughout: the 9’5” ceilings, window shutters on all windows – all in perfect working order, the original tiles in the porch and hallway, original wood flooring in the two generously sized reception rooms with feature fireplaces, both with solid fuel stoves. A tremendously bright fabulous modern kitchen with 9’5” ceiling, two patio doors –capturing the most stunning views of the landscaped gardens and surrounding countryside – the heart of the home. What a setting to enjoy while having your breakfast every morning!
If you are looking for your own retreat, an escape from all the hustle and bustle, once you step inside these gates, you’ve got it all here.
