Located just over 2km from Old Leighlin village, 5km off the Carlow / Kilkenny road, this truly impressive family home, built in 2003, has been beautifully maintained and is presented in impeccable condition throughout. As fine as the house presents within, it is the “view” which captivates, as is evident from the images below (video footage online), but nothing like the real deal of appreciating the stunning countryside once you come through those electric gates, onto a tarmacadam driveway with copper beech hedging to both sides, the tarmac continuing around the house with landscaped gardens to front and sides with a number of areas to retreat to. A vegetable plot to your front left, just below a large shed extending to c.130sq m with concrete yard and a concrete base for a similar sized shed to the rear of the existing one.

This home provides a haven of tranquillity. Once inside you can appreciate how this fabulous home has been decorated and maintained. An imposing entrance hallway with a solid oak stairwell will immediately set the tone for what’s to follow. The generously appointed and well laid out accommodation extends to c.408.76 sq m / 4,400 sq ft, c.37 sq m being the games room on the top floor. The feature dining room is a tremendously bright and tranquil space capturing the most stunning views, with a similar lobby area off the main bedroom overhead. What a setting to wake upto every morning! If you are looking for your own retreat, an escape from all the hustle and bustle, once you step inside these gates, you’ve got it all.
