Kilronan House, Ballyboughal €850k
Ballyboughal, a pastoral community in north County Dublin, is the home of the Ballyboughal Hedgerow Society, which organises walks and events to promote appreciation of the natural landscape.
Kilronan House is on one-and-a-half acres in the nearby townland of Clonswords, on a pleasantly rustic road with a profusion of natural verdure, where budding hedgerow enthusiasts could make a good start.
Built in 2005, this stone-built, split-level bungalow has a rambling 3,200 sq ft of floor space. There are two main reception rooms, both around the same size at 17ft by just under 16ft. One is a dining room, and the other is a drawing room with a marble fireplace, with a gas fire in it. There's also a family room with a hardwood floor and French doors leading to the garden, plus a sunroom, accessed from the drawing room, with a vaulted timber ceiling
The kitchen has white cabinets with black granite countertops, and there's a walk-in pantry, as well as a separate utility room.
The last of the living rooms is a home office or playroom with an oak floor and pull-down stairs to the attic above.
There are four bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms, and the main bathroom has a jacuzzi bath.
On the grounds there's a detached garage, although there's plenty of room to park outside at the end of the tarred driveway, which is reached by means of electric entrance gates.
The gardens amount to one-and-a-half acres, with lawns, shrubs, flower beds and youthful trees, and there are views of the surrounding countryside from the patio.
Dublin airport is about a 20-minute drive away, and you can reach the city centre in about half an hour in light traffic.
