The low-maintenance garden features granite stone, a garden shed, and a limestone patio.

Also, to the back of the property is a mobile home that can be purchased for an additional fee of €15,000. A bit of History: This tower building, which was first constructed as a RIC police station sometime around c. 1839, was equipped to transmit and receive flag signals to other White Boys towers that were located strategically throughout Carlow. With wedge-shaped cut granite threads embedded into the wall at the inner perimeter of the tower and their thinnest part carved into a cylindrical shape as they are stacked one on top of the other to form the stair's spindle, the granite stairs are a magnificent example of architectural detailing.
