New to the Market
Beautiful detached 4 bedroom house in scenic elevated area with direct views over the 700 acre Estate of Clonalis House Woods, which straddles the River Suck. The River Suck is enclosed by a carpet of mixed forestry at a location of 200 metres in front of this residence. Therefore, the setting of this residence is idyllic at a slightly elevated location overlooking this haven of biodiversity and enjoying seasonal foliage changes and blanket of snow views, which the large front windows reveal.
Although this house has a unique and highly sought after rural setting (particularly sought after in present times) it is also exactly 1 km from the edge of Castlerea Town connecting to its public footpath/lighting at the Junction of Knock Road and Kilkelly Road. Caslterea Town with its attendant Primary and Secondary Schools, Church, Adoration Chapel, St. Kevins GAA Club, Castlerea Celtic SC, Athletics Club, Outdoor Swimming Pool and Play Area, Brass Band, Musical Society, Arts Centre, extensive retail offering including large supermarkets/discount stores and vibrant community spirit, is literally on the doorstep of this residence. The jewel of Castlerea Town is undoubtedly the Castlerea Town Demesne, a beautiful park of ancient woodlands with access directly from the Market Square in the Town Centre and other locations. This park forms part of the Castlerea Looped Walk, which meanders through the Demense and Clonalis Woods and is a treasure to behold. This walk also forms part of the overall Suck Valley Way trail, which is a recognised Irish Trails walk way. This house is only a short drive to Ballinlough and Lake O'Flynn with its abundant fishing offering and outdoor gym.
This single storey residence has the benefit of large living areas with a separate large kitchen and sizeable utility along with a separate dining room and large living room. There are four bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (WCx2). Another unique feature of this residence is the large roof space which has been constructed without cross beams, to allow for easy conversion of this space to a habitable living area. The roof space, if developed subject to PP, would potentially accommodate 4 large bedrooms with WCs and would be ideal if one had intentions of running a BnB from this fantastic location or alternatively it could be used for working from home office space/play area.
In the interest of self sustainability, this residence is also positioned on a sizable three quarter acre site with very fertile soils with ample room for a presently popular 'hen run' and/or some grow your own vegetables and other gardening activities, should the future owner have 'green fingers' or ambitions thereof!
In present times, such rurally located houses with access to nearby town centre services, are highly sought after, therefore early viewing is highly recommended.
