DescriptionCharming period farmhouse that has been beautifully extended and renovated.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a period property that has been renovated and extended to meet the requirements of luxurious modern living. This home oozes sophistication and, while it retains all the charm of a bygone age, it now stretches to an imposing 294sq.m. (3,165sq.ft.). It boasts three reception rooms in addition to a kitchen and delightful dining room with a vaulted ceiling. A generous study, bathroom and utility complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, there are two guest w.c.’s, four bedrooms (one of which has an en-suite shower room) in addition to a most impressive master suite.
While the property has been tastefully finished and outside, the gardens are equally exquisite. They have been beautifully landscaped in recent years and boast a wide variety of trees, plants and shrubs, with attractive water features and tranquil patio areas. Strategically positioned external lighting ensures that the garden can be enjoyed day and night and the subtle illumination is ideal for evening entertaining.
All this, on c. 1.1 acres of land tucked away behind a secure electric gated entrance. There is ample private parking to the front of the house and a large Garage/Workshop to the side.
‘Tobar Mor’ enjoys a most tranquil rural setting, yet is only 2kms from the thriving village community at Kilrush. This boasts a full range of village activities with a national school, pub, churches and GAA Club. A mere 6kms away, on the banks of the River Slaney, is the scenic town of Bunclody. This has a full range of amenities including a choice of secondary schools, supermarkets, pubs, shops and restaurants. It also has a diverse range of social and sporting activities including swimming, golf and fishing. In the opposite direction about 8km away, is the historic town of Ferns with the N/M11, while Dublin is an additional hour’s drive north.
This is a truly beautiful large home, with an exceptional finish and rich in period style.
