Designer home on three acres near Lough Derg
Hawthorn Lodge, Urra Hill, Dromineer, Co Tipperary
Very large three-bedroom house on 3 acres overlooking Lough Derg
Built in 2005, this extremely spacious (440sqm) and very contemporary house has been designed to maximise both the available natural light and the lovely lake views of nearby Lough Derg.
No expense has been spared in fitting out the house: all the various living rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors out to the decking and garden area; there are two ceramic high-efficiency stoves; a Christian designer kitchen; underfloor heating in the kitchen, hall and master bedroom; fitted cherry wood bookcases and units; Junckers wood floors in the bedrooms and vaulted ceilings.
The living area consists of entrance hall, sitting room, drawing room and split-level dining room, kitchen, lower kitchen/living room, pantry, utility room, control room and guest WC.
All three bedrooms are en suite. The master bedroom also has a sitting area. The second bedroom has its own private deck/garden area and access to a roof terrace.
There are also two rooms in the basement and a separate wine cellar and a double garage.
Pros: Good insulation, solar panels and wood-pellet heating make it eco friendly.
Cons: It's a pity there's only three bedrooms.
