Barna is a thriving, well serviced, seaside village with a wealth of shops, stylish restaurants and bars including the Twelve Hotel. Offering residents a great blend of tranquility and activity, local amenities include Barna Woods, Silver Strand, tennis and basketball courts, pitch and putt, and a football pitch.
This bungalow in Truskey West, situated on a half acre site just one mile from Barna village, was built by the current owners in 2000 and extended to 2,500sq ft in 2008. This open plan property is fitted to a very high standard with interesting design features including Saltillo Mexican tiles, solid timber floors, top quality bathroom suites and tiling, solid oak kitchen units with quartz worktops, and a mixture of double and triple glazed windows. All the rooms are spacious and bright which make this a very sizeable yet comfortable home.
The gardens are landscaped with mature trees, shrubbery, and a rugged rockery area. There is a stone wall boundary to the front, a gravel driveway leads to the rear, and the patio area is paved with stone native to Achill Island, County Mayo.
Accommodation includes a large entrance hall featuring Saltillo Mexican tiles. There is a large dining room to the right of the entrance hall with solid fuel fireplace, solid timber floors, a large window overlooking the front garden, and steps from here lead down to the living room. The bright living room, situated to the rear of the house, has lots of windows allowing for plenty of natural light. It features a solid fuel fireplace, solid timber floors, and sliding doors to a patio area at the rear of the house. Steps from the living room lead to the kitchen.
Also at the rear of the house, the kitchen features solid oak kitchen units, quartz worktops, and tiled floor. A large central kitchen island accommodates the kitchen sink and integrated dishwasher. A bay window provides for a small breakfast area and a door from here leads to the back garden. The utility room has tiled floor, some built-in units, a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, and it contains an extra built-in fridge/freezer.
To the left of the entrance hall, the study comes with carpet and tiled floor, an inviting built-in gas stove, and internal glass windows to maintain light. This space has been used by the current owners as a study or cosy hangout room.
There are four double bedrooms in this fine house. The front two bedrooms have carpet flooring while the rear two bedrooms have solid timber floors. Bedroom two has a fully tiled en suite, which is also accessed through the main hallway. The master bedroom features a large en suite shower room with quality tiles and part glass block wall. A sizeable walk-in wardrobe provides plenty of storage space. Large windows span the length of the room with sliding doors overlooking the rear garden. This room also boasts a little quiet space, perfect for yoga or meditation practitioners.
Finally, the main family bathroom is partly tiled with a suite that includes bath with overhead power shower, wc, and whb.
Other features include double and triple glazed PVC windows and oil fired central heating, with a BER of C3 on cert number 104900873 and an energy performance indicator of 223.06 (kWh/sq m/yr ).
While this lovely family home may look like a traditional bungalow, it is anything but. It is an ideal location, in a nice quiet country setting and only a stone's throw from Bearna Golf Club and some fine bog walks. It really must be seen to be appreciated.
