Ennis Gough Property is delighted to offer this unique home to the market. Located on a plot of (circa) 0.7 acre this beautiful home provides an impressive 233m2 of flexible family accommodation on a lovely rural plot, only minutes from Waterford city. The property was built 1995 and features some beautiful cut stone blockwork with contrasting redbrick quoins and window lintel details. Combined with the decorated bargeboards, and terracotta chimney pots, the property is styled like a substantial country cottage, and the country look is continued internally and in the gardens and terraces around the property. The property is currently arranged into a four bedroom family home and a two bedroom “granny flat” annex, but could be easily reconfigured into one six bedroom dwelling. The granny flat could, of course be used as a workplace, office, studio or an income generating rental property, either long term , or short term such as Air BNB. As currently configured, the ground floor accommodation features a hallway, cosy lounge, larger sitting/diningroom with a south facing conservatory overlooking a sheltered, paved terrace. The kitchen-diner is dual aspect and also provides access to the terrace, and features French doors to another substantial conservatory with views of the River Suir and the city skyline. The ground floor also includes a guest WC and a separate boilerhouse. The upper floor of the home features four double bedrooms. The master bedroom, to the front has its own ensuite shower-room. The main family bathroom, recently upgraded and modernised, is to the rear and features a cast iron roll top bath. The granny flat accommodation features a livingroom, kitchen-diner, bathroom and two double bedrooms. The granny flat has its own separate front door and separate enclosed garden. Outdoors, the property features a sheltered south facing terrace, and a variety of outhouses, one of which is currently fitted out as a home gym. An ornamental pond to the front has a water feature and is stocked with fish. A greenhouse, currently underutilised, is ideal for any green-fingered new owners. Other outhouses are used for storage, A dog run is already in place if new owners have canine companions. A cellar (circa 15m2) can be access from the garden, and provides secure storage for garden furniture, equipment and bicycles. Beyond the terrace lies a landscaped formal cottage garden, and an open paddock, which might accommodate a pony or two if required. The gardens are lavishly planted with a beautiful selection of traditional flowers shrubs, and trees. The variety of colours and textures provide all-year-around visual interest. Theres ample parking at the front on a gravel drive, and an extra high car-port, designed for vans or campervans hidden from view towards the rear of the property. The property benefits from mains water and has it’s own septic tank. Farmlea is off the Abbey Road, a short walk to Ferrybank village and the three local schools, including the Abbey Community College. Retailers in the village include a post office, butchers, off licence, take-ways, barbers, dentist and hair dresser. The nearby HSE community health centre and library provide further amenities. Soccer, GAA and golf participants can join the local clubs. Ferrybank provides speedy access to the local national road network, such as the N25 (to Wexford and Cork) , N24 (Midwest & Limerick) and M9 (Kilkenny, Carlow & Dublin) The on-going development of the North Quays will soon deliver a footbridge to the city centre, and a new transport hub, with rail station, bus depot and the meeting point of the Waterford greenway and the new South East Greenway. (to New Ross and beyond.)
