Farrell Auctioneers, Valuers & Estate Agents LTD are delighted to bring to the market this beautiful family home set on 10 acres located just 5km from Ardrahan Village. The property has a host of additional features including a low carbon footprint heating system, heated built in wardrobes, rainwater storage with optional mains supply option, reverse osmosis filter for drinking water, large garage with upper storage to name but a few. Accommodation includes entrance hallway, lounge, kitchen, utility, w.c, 4 bedrooms (1 en-suite) and two bathrooms. The house and utbuildings are set in the centre of 4ha (10 acres) of broadleaved woodland. The land was originally used for conventional farming: livestock pasture and arable tillage. However, in 1993 the field was planted with 60% ash (Fraxinus excelsior) and a 40% Cherry (Prunus avium) / Sycamore (Acerpseudoplatanus) mixture in eight plots. Ash and cherry are indigenous, native Irish species; sycamore is non-native, but naturalised, having been introduced to Ireland many hundreds of years ago.
