Property History:
This home was built as a Dower House to the Elliott family home nearby, since demolished. It was built around the turn of the 20th century on the hearth of a previous dwelling. The house is associated with local history. It is known locally as “The Master’s House” as two consecutive local school masters lived here for a period of almost 40 years. Sean Connolly, local and national hero, visited and stayed in the house before his death, being a cousin of the owner, Master Connolly, who married into the Elliot family.

2 Reception rooms, one with 33,000 BTU stove (2012) in the original hearth.

Wooden garden shed and summer house.
The private, mature woody gardens were developed over time to include two front gardens, a beech and scot’s pine woods, a vintage apple/pear orchard, a paddock, vegetable garden and the “gairdín”.

The layout of the garden lends itself to outdoor family living; this is a children’s paradise, with room-like spaces for the family to sit and read or eat, with sheltered seating areas dotted around the garden.

Water: The house has independent water provision and sewerage systems (registered with Local Authority). An artesian well (2005) provides water via a new pump (2011). This water is ion-exchange filtered for removal of chemical ions (2005) before being UV treated for removal of microbial agents (2005) for drinking water safety. A septic tank is situated to the rear of the house (pre-2000) ...
