Description

Old Castle, Dungar is a home for the discerning buyer. A beautiful cut stone, double fronted house with two bay windows built in the 1920's. The property is beautifully positioned to the edge of the town, is very private and surrounded by approx. 4.96 acres of walled gardens (natural sandstone), woodland, castle grounds, farm yard and a paddock. Almost fully restored now by the current owners this is such a special property. Most rooms have been restored with new wiring, flooring, panelling, tiling etc, and some rooms are ready for you to put your touch to them. Accommodation extends to approx. 416 sq. mts (4,477 sq. ft.). There are six reception rooms and five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a kitchen with boot room & pantry. The house has many original features such as panelled doors, moulded architraving, high ceilings, a wide gracious teak staircase, Art Deco fireplaces and a sunny southerly aspect to the front. Recent renovations include an all new central heating system installed with zoned areas, and all new radiators throughout, & new hot water cistern. The layout has been reconfigured to create a big “heart of the home kitchen” and a generous boot room and walk in pantry. Complete re-wire throughout the house including internet fibre cable (FTTP) via underground cable laid from the road. High internet speeds available. CAT 6 cables and sockets in 2 of the rooms and further CAT 6 cabling to the Annex and to 2 WiFi repeaters (downstairs hallway and kitchen) to allow for professional working from home with a fast, stable internet connection. Electric trunking laid from the house to top and bottom gates on the driveway to facilitate electric gates and intercoms. The property is situated within the grounds of a well preserved 16th Century Tower House, once home to Rory O'Carroll. Upon ascending the internal stone stairs the views from the top are breath taking. There are extensive outbuildings which are suitable for conversion to residential or commercial use. (Subject to required permissions) There is also stabling and ample grounds to support smaller scale equestrian uses. The stunning gardens include a disused all weather tennis court, an orchard, a stone patio, together with mature lawns, trees and shrubbery. One can also make out the outline and level of the former croquet lawn.
