Full description:

This delightful home is set in around 5.3 hectares and enjoys the most delightful views over its own grounds. It offers three lakes, one of which is stocked with black-bass and wild carp so could be ideal for a fishing enthusiast (as may the river Larron which runs through the property) or may equally appeal to those with an equestrian interest as the property is not in an area that is categorised as a flood risk. Naturally there is a wildlife presence on the estate with water fowl, deer etc and a hunting order is in place preventing outsiders from hunting within the grounds (this order could be revoked by the purchaser if desired). A very large hangar (built in 2011) offers the flexibility to serve as any combination of garage, storage, workshop, conversion to stables, caravan / camping car storage etc. The owners have, in the past operated a bed and breakfast business as the upstairs accommodation can serve as separate living accommodation (the basement includes a separate kitchen, ideal for preparing guests' breakfasts). Central heating is provided by two boilers, one of which is wood-burning and uses wood from the estate, the other being oil-fired. Amenities are within easy reach in Rostrenen which is 6.5km (4 miles) away. A visit is strongly recommended to appreciate the setting and ambiance offered by this highly impressive property! Some furniture items are available to the purchaser subject to separate negotiation.

The large hangar was constructed in 2011 at a cost of almost EUR 60,000 and offers many potential uses, including storage of vehicles (the entrance door is approximately 3.5m high) and other equipment or as a workshop etc. It has electricity connected and the pipework is in place to facilitate installation of a water supply.
