In the townland of Athgoe, near Newcastle, Co Dublin, is a detached house on seven acres of land. And with seven acres to work with, it would be a sheer waste not to cultivate an orchard.
Sure enough, 'The Beeches' has an orchard, as well as a landscaped garden with a lawn and hedging, and a paddock with a separate entrance.
The house itself is 2,000 sq ft and has two reception rooms. The main one is a sitting room spanning the depth of the house, with a fireplace and bay window, and there's a living room with double doors to the kitchen. The house also has four bedrooms, a bathroom and utility room.
Outbuildings include a carport and an outside toilet. It's about three minutes' drive to the N7 Naas Road, getting you to the city centre in about 35 minutes.
