O'Donnellan & Joyce is offering a rare opportunity to secure a stunning architecturally designed family home located on the highly sought-after Dark Road, Castletaylor North, just five minutes from Kilcolgan and Ardrahan villages, and a popular walking, cycling, running and horse-riding location.
This magnificent gentle sloping south facing site is bounded by mature deciduous trees front and back, and bordered by mature diverse hedgerows planted with biodiversity, shelter, and privacy in mind.
This property has been cleverly designed and set back elevated from the road to maximize light and views throughout from dawn to dusk, availing of stunning year-round night skies and sunset vistas.
The coral fossilized boulder-bound driveway winds up to a natural limestone gabled two story residence, full of character and bespoke design features, including a black wrought iron staircase set in a two story height open hallway, creating a sense of space and light throughout.
The property has an open plan ground floor west facing living room, kitchen and dining area, the latter with a vaulted double Velux lit ceiling, while the kitchen's social focal point is an expansive black granite topped island unit.
The eastern ground floor wing is host to a double bedroom to the rear, with en suite bathroom, and French doors opening to a small decking area and views to the back garden.
Adjacent to the front south facing aspect is the formal entertainment room with open fireplace, and adjacent office/music room, also with a vaulted ceiling adding to the light, space and acoustics.
Upstairs there are a further three double bedrooms and main bathroom, with an additional en suite and walk-in wardrobe off the substantial master bedroom, which overlooks the front garden and forest landscape to the south.
On completion in 2005, the property build, commissioned by a geologist, was fitted with hollowcore flooring for sound insulation, and a Swedish manufactured NIBE geothermal heat pump, and Unipipe underfloor heating system, both downstairs and upstairs.
All companies involved in the system design, delivery, and installation are still in operation, testament to the quality of the technology installed.
The future residents will enjoy living in a stable comfortable temperature, with 24/7 running hot water, in an open, airy living space, not always the case in the latest A rated housing.
Engineered oak timber flooring and tiling predominate throughout the property to maximize heating efficiency, with luxurious carpeting and rugs where appropriate.
This property will suit new owners interested in space and tranquillity, outdoor country living, wildlife and nature, as well as gardening, walking and cycling enthusiasts.
The BER is B2. Asking price is €535,000.
