Truly unique home from home in Southern Ireland.
A luxury family home built and furnished to the very highest standards, without compromise, and to our own designs and specifications for our own use.
Built in 1998 and 2000 and set in 6 acres, the house is a wonderful Post & Beam home using beautiful Douglas Fir timbers imported from Canada.
The exterior is clad in Cedar siding we bought in South Carolina, the garage doors are in hardwood to a one-off design and were made in Belgium, the guttering and drainpipes are made from zinc and came from France, and the limestone floor tiles came from Italy.
The interior is really spacious and open plan, with stunning open vaulted ceilings both downstairs and in the bedrooms, and the furnishings are contemporary.
The open plan kitchen is separated from the dining area, and has a granite topped breakfast bar. A separate laundry room runs off the kitchen, as does a further utility room and pantry room, and there is a downstairs cloakroom/powder room off the reception room.
The house is fully equipped with TV and VCR, several radios and CD/tape players, hair dryer, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer, microwave, electric range cooker with 6 burner gas hob and extractor fan, and full under floor heating to the ground floor and first floor bathrooms – even Christmas tree lights!
One word of caution: there are no curtains or drapes downstairs. We did this on purpose as we wanted to maximise the sizes of windows and wished to “bring in " the lovely garden views. The house is secluded, and no strangers wander about. Don't worry, we have fitted curtains to all the bedrooms!
Unlike some other holiday homes you will find a full complement of all house wares (a full inventory is available on request).
You will also find in the boiler room a selection of wellies, coats, waterproofs, walking sticks etc.
Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard… Here in our larder you will find the essentials of life: olive oil, black peppercorns, rock salt, Tabasco sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and many more items to make your stay comfortable. Help yourself, and please be kind enough to replace items.
We will provide you with a mobile phone if you require: our caretaker Rupert Varley will arrange this for you upon arrival. You only pay for the calls you make during your stay, and reception is excellent on all the networks.
