Property Description

Almost 1000 years later, the location still reigns supreme and this stunning 4 bedroom detached bungalow offers a rare opportunity to acquire a magnificent home of distinction in this most sought after location. Set on a magnificently mature half acre site, the views front and back are immense. With the rolling hills of Dysart to the rear and Strongbow fort in Dunamaise to the front, this truly is special countryside. Such a special setting demands a special home and this amazing property is just that. With 4 spacious bedrooms, a magnificent Kitchen dining room, snug sitting room and the most beautiful large reception room which all combine to create a magnificent family space this home is without compare. From the moment you step into the beautiful reception hall, the quality interior d├ęcor and attention to detail are palpable. With a magnificent modern palette and luxury floor finishes this home is finished to the highest standards. The kitchen dining room enjoys picture window views over the surrounding countryside and enjoys a useful utility room and extra-large linen cupboard. However, it is the large ope to the huge reception room that really impresses. This room is just magnificent. A huge patio door to the gorgeous garden, 3 large Velux windows, a picture window, cathedral ceiling and a magnificent solid fuel stove create a room that leaves a lasting impression. The four double bedrooms are extremely spacious with the master bedroom enjoying an ensuite bathroom.
