Hawthorn House is an architecturally designed detached home constructed in 2001 on 6.5 acres of well drained rich pasture divided in two stud railed and electric fenced paddocks near the quaint village of Garristown only 32km from Dublin city center and 20km from Dublin airport.
The house has been cleverly designed to capture the maximum amount of sunlight with a picturesque view of the countryside from every window. All rooms have high ceilings (2.7m) and some have full height vaulted ceilings.
The owners have given great attention to the detailed design of the house with the extensive use of natural materials including reclaimed brick, limestone, granite, wide plank pitch pine flooring, pitch pine ceiling boards and brace doors.
The house also features some unique fireplaces designed and constructed by experienced stone masons.
Hawthorn House also has modern features including a fitted kitchen by award winning kitchen designers "Dillons Kitchens" and modern bathroom designs incorporating power showers and bidet's.
The house has two fully fitted kitchen units at either end of the house and a self contained living area comprising kitchen/dining room, sitting room, bathroom, and 2/3 bedrooms (one ensuite) that can be utilised to accommodate separate living for other if desired.
Hawthorn House is situated in a very private setting approximately 250 meters off the roadside secured by electric gates with a natural stone avenue approaching the house, surrounded by beautiful countryside with no neighbouring property visible from the house. The south facing garden room overlooks hundreds of acres of uninterrupted farmland.
Three sides of the house are wrapped with sandstone floodlit patio slabs and the grounds surrounding the house are in immaculate condition and include a custom built glasshouse with running water and electricity incorporating a south facing stone wall. There is also a covered barbecue area with stone worktops, sink and electricity supply adjacent to the garden room.
The original stone shed at the entrance has been converted and refurbished with an authentic wood burning pizza oven installed. The shed has running water and a separate electrical supply and is ideal for entertaining with a private lawn and large floodlit patio area.
To the south of the site there is a mature orchard with over 100 mature fruit trees ideal for the production of home brew cider.
The orchard grass is maintained to lawn standard and there is a natural stream running alongside leading to a pond.
At the bottom of the paddocks is an enclosed gated yard and modern farm building with a large loft ideal for keeping horses, other livestock or pets. Approximately 100 Ash trees have been planted ten years ago adjacent to the yard which are and intended for future firewood requirements.
