Description“Old Stone” was originally built in 1842 and stood for over a century as a small cottage. Today however, it retains its traditional roots while also offers a contemporary A-Rated family home with an adjoining plot of land measuring approximately 0.7acres just 5 minutes' drive from Craughwell village.
This property has been carefully restored, extended and modernised by the current owners over the past number of years to cater for a growing family in an energy efficient home. With high speed broadband in the area there is a splendid combination throughout this property of old and new. The large original stone fireplace in the living room stands in a double height void to the first floor while there is a large open plan kitchen dining space featuring a Travertine tiled floor and a solid timber kitchen. Off this space to the west side is an enclosed paved courtyard while to the other side of the kitchen there is a pantry, utility/boot room and onto a shower room. The ground floor also has another room that could be used as a fourth bedroom but is currently used as a home office. Upstairs, the main bedroom has a triple aspect, walk in wardrobe and ensuite. Two large double bedrooms and the main bathroom complete the accommodation.
Externally, the stone driveway sweeps along a large garden to the house with three sheds to the side and rear. The short lane to the rear leads to a paddock with stone wall boundaries and is partially planted with specimen trees, a perfect plot to keep a pony or two.
Old Stone is an impressive property which has brought a traditional famine cottage into the 21st century with a quality of finish that will see its story continue for a long time to come.
