Property Description

Colliers in conjunction with Donohoe Town & Country are delighted to present this excellent detached family home with the added benefit of small stud farm in all extending to approximately 11.0 ha (27 acres) to the market
Knockullard, whilst a modern house built in 2005, extending to approximately 340 sq. m (3,600 sq. ft), is full of country period charm, standing on a slightly elevated site with a gently sloping west facing garden, leading to a small ornamental lake, surrounded by several post and railed paddocks. The orientation of the main house takes full advantage of the views over the verdant south Carlow countryside, extending as far as the Tomduff Hill, Slievebawn and Mount Leinster to the east and the River Barrow Valley to the south and west. The house is unusual, though modern, salvaged period fittings and accoutrements have been used to great effect giving a timeless feel to the property.
In addition to the main house, additional accommodation is supplied in the form of a large artists workshop with an excellent one bed studio apartment over.
In addition, the stable block with 6 loose boxes, tack room, adjoining 3 span haybarn and sand arena will appeal to an occupier with equine interests or just as a small agricultural holding.
The Residence.
The house is approached through wrought iron gates from the public road, via the curving treelined gravel avenue, to the main entrance door. A second avenue allows direct access to the farm yard buildings and the studio apartment.
The main house is a light filled residence, with all the main reception rooms, kitchen and bedrooms taking full advantage of the location and uninterrupted southerly views. A special feature of the house is the long veranda with cast iron supports on the south facing elevation, an ideal location for entertaining in the summer months.

Accommodation
Entering the house via the front door leads to the large open plan dining room/living room with solid planked Maple wood floor, large Godin wood burner with imposing stone and brick chimney piece. French doors open onto the veranda. Adjoining the drawing/dining room is the sitting room, again with Maple wood flooring and large open fireplace with Stone surround and wrought iron inset. At the opposite end is the large country style kitchen with family sitting area in front of a large open fireplace with Granite stone surround, dining/breakfast area, sitting area in the bow window and the kitchen area with a full range of floor and wall mounted storage units and central island. Through the rear hall and utility room with access to the yard is the study/office.
The stairs lead to the first floor landing off which are the 5 bedrooms, 4 family/guest bedrooms and the extensive principal bedroom suite with ensuite bathroom and walk-in dressing room. There are two bathrooms off the landing. Bedrooms 1 and 2 share one of the bathrooms. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are close to the family bathroom. The principal bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom ensuite, enjoys panoramic views, either from the balcony accessed through French doors or from the bay window.
The artists workshop and one bedroom studio apartment are detached from the main house to the rear. The studio apartment includes, bedroom with ensuite, Kitchen/Living Room.
Outside.
The garden immediately surrounding the front of the house are laid out in lawns and shrubberies. Sections of the garden have been made over to rewilding to encourage the natural flora and fauna of the area to re-establish. The front lawn leads down to the ornamental lake.
The stable yard includes a range of 6 loose boxes, with tack room and has been laid out so that there is a wash down/grooming area immediately adjoining each box. Adjoining the stable block is a small leant implement shed and the 3 span hay barn. A post and railed all weather sand arena complete the equine facilities.
The lands which extend to approximately 27 acres are laid out in 7 good sized paddocks, each stud railed and serviced with water.

The Locality
The general area is of a rural nature with several large agricultural holdings together with one off houses on substantial sites giving rise to an active local community. The two main topographical features of the area are Mount Leinster to the east and the River Barrow Valley to the south and west.

The main shopping centres for the locality are Bagenalstown approximately 10 minutes' drive with the main county towns of Kilkenny and Carlow, each easily accessed within 25 minutes' drive.
