Warmth and light filled
Where: Rathmore, Navan Road, Athboy, Co Meath
Details: Five-bedroom house on 0.6 acres
Carraig Rua, as its name indicates, is a stone-fronted yet warmly presented house on attractively landscaped grounds in Co Meath.
When first offered for sale its price tag was €1.2m but it has recently been reduced to €595,000 -- a drop of 50pc.
On first appearances, its quaint forest-lodge style hints at cosy small rooms. In fact, its interiors are designed to create a sense of spaciousness by high ceilings, interconnecting rooms and an abundance of natural light.
The latter is achieved partly by the bow windows in the lounge and dining room as well as the French doors in the dining room and in the kitchen/living room.
The dining room and kitchen are interconnected and also open on to two rear patios.
As well as a double oven and fitted units, the kitchen area is separated by a relatively wide centre island, and a utility room, shower room and one of the bedrooms are also located at ground level.
Upstairs two of the four bedrooms are en suite and the master bedroom has French doors opening on to a balcony. A family bathroom features a polygonal shaped dome ceiling.
In all, the floor area extends to 300sqm.
Protected by electric gates, the grounds are attractively landscaped with an array of colourful plants.
It is located within walking distance of Rathmore Church and school and a short drive from the M3 motorway.
