Amateur gardeners often look to the grounds of stately homes for ideas, and are then left to ponder the problem of replicating five acres of pleasure grounds in a 20ft-square suburban patch.

The new owners of The Cottage at Boherwillin, near Dungarvan, Co Waterford, will have dibs on a whole acre of their own, however, allowing their green fingers a bit of elbow room.

The Cottage is seven kilometres from Cappoquin House & Gardens, which is open to the public. There you'll see century-old trees, a sunken formal garden, a pear and apple walk, giant rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolia, and plenty of atmospheric old stone.

The garden of The Cottage at present consists of a lawn with some mature trees and shrubs and flowerbeds, so there's plenty of space left for an apple and pear walk if you're prepared to think big.

Out the back, in a sheltered, south-facing corner, the owners have placed a deck, and there's also a south-facing patio, and you can get to these sunny spots from both of the main living rooms in the house.

The main reception room is dual-aspect, with French doors on both walls, and has a fireplace with a stove.

The kitchen is triple-aspect with two sets of French doors.

There are three bedrooms, and the main one has a walk-in wardrobe, an en suite with a free-standing bath, and another set of doors to the garden.

Your nearest village is Modelligo, less than three kilometres away, where there's a national school, church and GAA club.

Cappoquin is seven kilometres to the west, and Dungarvan is about 10 minutes' drive to the southeast.

The Cottage at Boherwillin is for sale with agent Brian Gleeson Property, (058) 44200, and has an asking price of €220,000.
