An impressive four-bed home set back from the road, Kilskyre comes to the market in pristine condition. The property also includes the original farmhouse and three-bay workshop on its 45-acre site. It will go for auction on May 31 with an €800,000 AMV.
Designed to a country fashion with period-style windows, cut-stone detail to the façade and gabled roofing, this home oozes rustic charm.
But despite its old-world exterior, Kilskyre is a light-filled, energy-efficient, modern home, built to a high standard.
Accommodation is plentiful, with a floor area of 297 sq m.
The large, central hallway has a double-height ceiling, with a stylish timber staircase to the upper floor.
Off the hall are two spacious reception rooms, one of which has a marble fireplace, while the other comes with a wood-burning stove.
An ideal family home, Kilskyre has a large open-plan kitchen/dining area, which includes a bespoke white-oak kitchen with granite worktops and plenty of space for eating and entertaining.
Ground floor accommodation also includes a study, a utility room, a bathroom and access to a garage that could be converted into additional living space if required.
Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, two of which include en suite bathrooms.
The main bedroom has an impressive walk-in wardrobe, and stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
The house comes with a B2 BER certificate, and features include geothermal underfloor heating at ground floor level, central vacuuming system, an alarm, and TV and broadband points in most rooms.
Outside is equally well-designed, and includes a professionally landscaped garden, patio area, mature hedging, security lighting and electric gates, while the house is accessed via a 230-metre-long avenue.
The original farmhouse is currently used as an office, but could be converted subject to planning permission.
