Riverside, Knockmullen, Fenagh, Co Leitrim
Four-bedroom stone-built detached house
Despite the fact that this house, with its natural stone walls and slate roof, looks at least 100 years old, it was built just five years ago. In addition, the attention to detail inside the house -- the deep-silled windows, ceiling roses, wood panelling, architraves, ornate ceilings -- also creates the feel of a much older house. The only giveaway are the uPvc windows.
The 195sqm accommodation consists of a tiled entrance hallway, a fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, integrated appliances, a Belfast sink and a Stanley wood-burning stove.
There is also a laundry room, dining room, sitting room and sunroom.
Upstairs, the landing has a vaulted wooden ceiling with Velux windows. There are four large bedrooms, one of which is en suite and has a walk-in wardrobe, and a tiled family bathroom.
There are wooden floors throughout the house and it has oil-fired central heating.
It has a large garden and is located just outside the village of Fenagh, in an area immortalised in John McGahern's work.
Pros: The River Fenagh runs along the bottom of the garden.
Cons: It's very close to the road.
