Sherry Fitzgerald McCreery are delighted to present to the market this charming farmhouse
style residence enjoying a peaceful and secluded setting on circa 3.5 Acres / 1.42 Hectares
of stunning gardens and paddocks. The property incorporates all modern conveniences, while
retaining the charm and comforts of a modern country home with views over the surrounding
countryside.

The owners built the property from new in 1997 and created and comfortable home with many
bespoke aspects of design that are evident in the finished product.

The spacious and bright accommodation extends to 1,582 Sq. Ft. / 147 Sq. M. approx. and is
laid over two levels. The layout at ground floor level comprises: open porch, entrance hall,
living room, sun room, magnificent open plan kitchen/dining/family room and utility room/back
hall. A guest wc completes the accommodation at ground level. The accommodation at first
floor level comprises: spacious landing area, large master bedroom (with en-suite) and two
good sized double bedrooms. A family bathroom completes the accommodation at this level.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS:

The gardens and two paddocks surrounding the residences are extremely well kept and the garden
has been well planned to provide colour and privacy. The property is well set back from the road
accessed by a cut stone entrance with black wrought iron gates. A beautiful stud railed gravelled
driveway welcomes visitors to the property and gives lovely first impressions. To the front and
rear of the residence are two excellent grazing paddocks that would be perfect for ponies or horses.
The driveway is lined on one side with mature Beech Lime Trees, while mature hedging and trees
ensure the grounds are most private. The gravelled parking area is bordered by low stone walls
with raised flowerbeds. The is an extensive range of mature plants and trees such as Mountain
Ash, Holly, climbing roses and a Virginia Creeper ivy on the front of the house. The driveway
extends up to the rear garden and paddock. A large block built shed (measuring 741 Sq. Ft.
/ 69 Sq. M. approx.) is complete with power and plug sockets. There are a number of other outbuildings
that can be used for stables or agricultural storage. The secluded and mature rear garden is laid in
lawn with Laurel hedging separating it from a large orchard area with ten old style apple trees.
The two paddocks are in mature pasture and have been managed extremely well. A vehicular farm gate
in the rear paddock gives access to a rear laneway.
