This amazing residence has been cleverly designed to perfectly harness the natural contour of its rolling site, camouflaging its entire lower floor with its orthodox two-storey front elevation. The residence presents 300 sq m of accommodation over its three floors, nestled into its 0.7 acre, mature private site, complete with a natural stream rear boundary. The entrance hall is set on the middle floor, with solid teak stair access to upper and lower levels. Four generously proportioned bedrooms, complete with Jack & Jill En-suite and main bathroom arrangements occupy the upper floor. Conventional living, dining and kitchen areas are at mid-level, while the lower floor supports an enormous Family Room, with provision for study / hobby / storage space, capable of supporting self-contained accommodation. To its rear an extraordinary, stone-built studio structure has been added, complete with vaulted, beamed ceiling, sash windows and lofted area. Presenting 35 sq m with a feature, full-height, south-facing rear wall, this area is ideal for any activity or application. A unique two-storey conservatory off the west-facing gable completes the residence.
Mature, cultivated road-side hedgerows ensure privacy while electric gates control access from the public road to a large gravel yard, with sweeping drive to the rear of the residence. A detached garage arrangement is sub-divided into two storage rooms. A tranquil guest log cabin to the rear facilitates guest or hobby applications.
Perfectly located less than 1 km off the N80, Junction 5 on the M9 is just 6 km away, while Carlow, Tullow and Bagenalstown are all within 10 km.
Viewing of this perfect family home is invited on a strictly appointment basis.
