Detached, 2005 built, three bed eco house, designed and largely built by the previous owner who was a skilled wood worker. Nestling in trees off of a quiet side road, this timber framed, timber clad property is very individual, with interesting shapes and intelligent use of lighting. The property is set on circa 3.25 acres of land, part garden, part wilderness, in a Natural Heritage Area.
Energy efficient, warm and comfortable this house uses passive solar design to great advantage, and is well insulated. Septic tank has additional reed bed system. Numerous trees form wooded glades and spinneys. A small river forms most of one boundary.
This house will appeal particularly to people who are interested in land that has been managed for its native biodiversity. Derrynaneal is home to otters, red squirrels, pine martens, hedgehogs, 147 species of moths (some very rare), and the EU protected marsh fritillary butterfly. The land has over 80 native plant species that are medicinal.
