REA Halnon Humphreys are delighted to offer to the market this recently refurbished and upgraded period property nestled on c. 2 acres of renowned and private gardens and located in the most sun-drenched part of Ireland. Description: The Bay Garden, which was built c. 200 years ago is a listed building oozing character and charm and while it has been recently refurbished throughout, it still displays many original features such as sash windows and feature fireplaces. Internally the residence was repainted and new carpets fitted along with a new fitted kitchen and family bathroom. This truly wonderful period property extends to approximately 190 Sq. M and, if required, offers the opportunity to extend the residence with a newly roofed area off the primary bedroom measuring 36 Sq. M. On approaching the residence, you are greeted by the beautiful original wide panelled front door with feature arched fanlight to allow natural light to consume the entrance hall. To the right is a formal reception room featuring the original fireplace and sash windows completed by their original shutters. To the left of the entrance hall is an inviting family room which offers a solid fuel stove set into the feature fireplace. This is a bright and airy room being dual aspect and displays timber flooring and panelled ceiling along with the original sash windows and shuttering. Off the family room lies an area with contemporary tiling and this area is currently used as a home office. This area has the potential to be converted to a ground floor bathroom if desired. The inviting dining room adjoins the newly fitted kitchen and offers a newly fitted Rayburn cooker and fitted units. The dining room is dual aspect and has French doors opening onto the south facing patio area, ideal for alfresco dining or a morning coffee in the enclosed gardens while savouring the beautiful sunshine the southeast has to offer. The scullery has been transformed into a fully integrated and contemporary galley kitchen with fitted sink, wall and floor units, integrated hob and oven, dishwasher and washing machine. A rear entrance hall/porch with contemporary tiling complementary to the period residence completes the ground floor. To the top of the original staircase lies the newly refurbished family bathroom with a charming choice of tiling. Brief steps to the left lead to a bright and spacious dual aspect bedroom with feature fireplace and sash windows. To the right of the staircase lies two further bedrooms and the primary bedroom. The primary bedroom is also dual aspect with a panelled Gambrel ceiling. Beyond this bedroom is a substantial area measuring 36 Sq. M which would make for ideal additional living space - a new roof and Velux windows were fitted to this area 3 years ago. Outside: The property is accessed via electric gates leading to the residence, outbuildings and magnificent gardens which up until a couple of years ago, were operated as major visitor attraction in the southeast. Previous owners, who were keen horticulturists, once ran The Bay Garden as a business and charged an entry fee to visitors and also ran tea rooms and offered plant sales. The tranquil and mature gardens offer something different around every corner from a secret garden to a formal garden pool dominated by silver and blue, picking up the colours of the old stable block in view beyond the hedge, a very restful contemplation. There are formal areas to be explored and sweeping meadows. An enclosed and colourful garden located to the rear of the residence is ideal for family gatherings and a secure garden area for little ones. There is an array of outbuildings scattered around the property including a self-contained cottage measuring 30 Sq. M with a bathroom measuring 6.5 Sq. M, currently being utilised as a games room, which previously operated as a Tea Rooms, open to the public. In addition, with a large potting shed and numerous outbuildings, the property has significant commercial potential with such a unique setting and makes for a wonderful venue (previously a garden centre) or is ideal as a gardeners paradise. The property can be maintained as much or as little as one desires. The Bay Garden is truly a magnificent property offering historic charm and character while being decoratively presented in a modern and contemporary style. It is a testament to the current owners on their efforts to bring this property back to life in the most beautiful and respectful way possible. Whether you are in the market for a distinctive and striking family home with amazing gardens or a home which offers endless business or commercial potential, The Bay Garden deserves serious consideration. Location: This stunning property is superbly located just a five minute walk from Camolin village. The village offers a selection of amenities such as primary school, shops, pubs, playground, soccer and GAA facilities, patisserie, artisan fishmonger and wine specialist, Cois na hAbhann Garden Centre and Bay Tree Restaurant.
