Savills are delighted to present Ard Na Coille overlooking Caragh Lake. There is something magical about Caragh Lake and it is only once in a blue moon that a property as private as Ard Na Coille overlooking the lake arises. This home is not only set on a mature site measuring about 0.8 acres, but also a beautifully appointed detached family home ready to move in to. This property is special and is the perfect bolthole if you want to get away from it all. The area is tranquil, untouched by the modern world, where birdsong and the lapping of the lake are the most prevalent sounds to be heard. Whether you are looking for a full-time or holiday home, you probably won' t look much further when you have seen this one. This house has been in the same ownership since the 1990' s and has been completely renovated in recent years. The very large living rooms are spacious and bright, the large windows ensure full appreciation of the wonderful views afforded from the rear of the property. Arriving at Ard Na Coille through a pillared, gated entrance the tree-lined driveway takes you to the large parking area. You get your first glimpse of the lake when you come through the entrance door and enter the beautiful open plan living room which opens on to the rear veranda. The front of the house is H-shaped giving a courtyard feel to the entrance area. The impressive hallway has a parquet floor leading to all rooms with double arched feature doors to sitting room. On entering the double aspect sitting room, you will stop to appreciate the stunning view. This leads to a second living area which can be completely separated with pocket doors and then onto the spacious dining room and finally to the modern kitchen and large utility room to the rear. At the opposite end of the hall you will find the four bedrooms, two ensuite, and a main bathroom. The garden adjacent to the tarmacadamed parking area is laid in lawn and completely surrounded with very mature shrubs and trees. The sound of the stream which runs through the property adds to the tranquillity of this magical site. The planting includes Rhododendron, Hydrangea, Camelia, Forest Flame, Beech, Oak and Birch trees, together with Lantern Trees, Azalea, Pampas Grass, Gunnera and Bamboo. The garage is accessed internally from a stairs in the hallway or from roller shutter doors at a lower level, off the driveway. There is a garden store attached to the garage and can be accessed also from the driveway.
