DescriptionWe are very pleased to present Dun A Ri to the market, a magnificent five bedroom detached residence on extensive grounds extending to approximately 1.7 acres complete with detached garage and lawn tennis court. Considering the extensive grounds future development could be an option subject to the relevant planning permission.
Entered via a sweeping driveway gives way to the front of the property with ample room for parking on the forecourt. The property was built in 1994 and designed with family living in mind and particular emphasise on the sea views enjoyed from it's elevated position of Rathmichael Hill, whereby all but three rooms within the property enjoy sea views. The spacious accommodation extends to 4,450 sq.ft which briefly comprises of entrance hallway with the drawing room to one side and the large dining room which can seat more than 20 comfortably which also give way to the basement which the current owners use as a games room. The hallway gives access to the sitting room, family room with dual aspect and the kitchen breakfast room complete with utility room. There is a large bright sunroom extension off the family room with dual aspect and doors leading out from both sides, one to a raised decking area, a wonderful area to enjoy al fresco dining whilst incorporating the beautiful sea views and the other to a second patio area with rockery feature.
The gardens are a joy to behold with expansive lawn areas, bordered with mature trees and hedging with a wonderful selection of specimen trees and planting throughout the garden. There are two decking areas to enjoy the morning, afternoon and evening sunshine whilst dining al fresco as well as a rockery feature on the westerly side of the property. The orchard can be reached many ways however a walkway bordered with daffodils when in season lead the way to the gazebo and orchard with a selection of fruit trees :- cooking & eating apples, plums, necterines, pears, figs and mulberry as well as raspberry canes and black current bushes.
There is a beautiful magnolia tree to the front of the property taking center stage when in bloom with cherry blossom on the drive way, maple, weeping willow and palm trees interspersed throughout the garden. The maturity can be seen throughout the grounds with this being such an amazing garden with so many nooks and crannies to enjoy. The lawn tennis court and detached garage complete the outdoor space. There is access to the rear of the garden to Rathmichael Lane, ideal as bridle path for ponies and riders or for leisurely hill walking. Detached garage with twin large remote controlled doors.
