Globrix.ie property of the week: Carthall, Corkish, Baileborough, Co Cavan
Details: Five-bedroom home on elevated site
Published 12/11/2010 | 05:00
Carthall is an attractively presented detached home extending to 288sqm on a 0.8 acre site about 2kms from Bailieborough town.
Its exterior stone and brickwork as well as its feature main entrance doorway combine to create a style reminiscent of the hunting lodges. This is also seen in the south facing sunroom with its high-panelled ceiling.
Its period ambience is underlined by an attractive archway and plasterwork including a centre rose in the hall as well as in the sitting room with its marble fire surround. Double doors lead from two other reception rooms, a sunroom and a family room, to the outside garden.
The family room can also serve as a dining room off the galley-style kitchen which has an attractively tiled Aga.
Its work space is supplemented by a utility room.
Currently there are five bedrooms, three of which are upstairs but another upstairs room could be converted from its current use as an office to a sixth bedroom.
Four of the bedrooms are en suite and two of the en suites, including the master bedroom, are on the ground level.
The 32sqm garage is incorporated into the house, as is a boiler room. These could be easily converted into more living accommodation.
Outside Carthall is approached by electronic gates via a curved avenue through lawns and mature shrubs.
