Located 6.5km from Roundwood and just over 9km from Ashford the property includes a four bedroom cottage with landscaped gardens on 43.46ac with ponds, woodland, excellent grassland and bound by the River Vartry.

The house has been extended, refurbished and decorated in a traditional style.

The accommodation is laid out in such a way that the rooms flow from one to the other into spaces that include a sitting room with dining area, a conservatory, a living room with French doors, a stove and slate tiled floor, and a fully fitted kitchen complete with Stanley cooker.

There are four bedrooms (two ensuite), a family bathroom, a mezzanine floor and extensive attic space. According to Aideen Gilsenan of selling agents Ganly Walters the property was originally a cottage extended by the recent owners but would lend itself to being divided into two separate residences.

Approached through wooden gates with granite pillars leading to a tree-lined, gravelled avenue. The property is surrounded by landscaped gardens, stone walls, a secret garden and an orchard. There are two natural fresh water ponds, which have natural springs and streams running through. Each pond has a timber decking area while a stone walled walk meanders through the land and forestry to the River Vartry.

The lands total 43.46ac which are set in grassland, woodlands and ponds with walks throughout. The grassland extends to approximately 20ac and is ideal for all types of agriculture.

There are approximately 20ac of woodland in hardwoods like oak, cherry, beech and sycamore, all planted over 20 years ago.

Ms Gilsenan describes Knockadreet as a wonderful property in stunning countryside.
