DescriptionA charming property set in tranquil surroundings in a central country location
Fairy Hallow is a charming property which has been recently restored and upgraded by the current owners and is presented in walk-in condition.
This original two-storey farmhouse has solid stone walls under a breathable lime based exterior plaster and is presented in the traditional three up/three down style with one active chimney for the eco-friendly wood pellet room heater. The additional one-storey buildings to the rear and side of the house were originally a one-storey building which now comprises a contemporary kitchen and two downstairs bedrooms & bathrooms. Recent works include new windows, electrics, plumbing, waste management and recently painted inside and out.
Entrance through the main door to a small foyer brings you straight into a welcoming reception room with one bedroom to the left, the staircase and entrance hall to the rear of the house and a second reception room to your right leading to the kitchen.
The downstairs house lay out has a spacious dining kitchen with a recently fitted kitchen featuring an America style fridge/freezer and quartz countertop in addition to a cleverly hidden built in utilities (washer, dryer and additional box freezer) behind cabinet doors with extra storage. There are two reception rooms, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms downstairs, which includes the master bedroom with a walk in wardrobe and ensuite. The master bedroom has a sky light to view the night-time stars and French doors leading out to the private rear of the property. The hallway, master bedroom and additional bedroom are part of the renovation and feature the original cut stonewall. The period pitch pine staircase and railing leads up to the first floor providing two additional bedrooms, bathroom and utility room with storage & water tank/pump.
To the side of the house is a stone-cut shed which has electricity, contains the monitoring equipment for the septic tank and is a useful storage area.
Gardens & Grounds
The grounds are a particular feature of this property covering about 0.67 acre. The property is fully fenced with two primary areas. To the front, the grass garden area covers two-thirds of the property and has an impressive monkey-puzzle tree, two mature apple trees from the original orchard, a stunning twisted horse chestnut tree with a tyre swing. In addition, in 2020 a wildflower garden was planted around the perimeter of the garden fence area and on a third of the grass to encourage flora & fauna in the area. Each year it is expected to grow thicker and more beautiful and create additional seeds. A tree house/platform was also built in 2020, providing a great vista of the surrounding areas, and is a great location to see nocturnal wildlife at night-time. Additionally, three raised vegetable-beds have produced multiple different produce for the household.
At the rear of the property is a spacious private courtyard area for outdoor dining etc. with a galvanized steel gate entryway. There is a fenced dog pen with a doghouse, in addition to a pump house with additional storage. The well is located beside the pump house and is approximately 80 metres deep. There are three external water taps, one off the kitchen and one each side of the shed.
