On the left, is the dining room offering an ideal setting for both formal gatherings and intimate dinner parties. Across from it lies the sitting room, fitted with an open fireplace, this room serves as the perfect space to unwind in the evenings in front of the fire. As you move through the house you will find yourself in an inner hallway. Here, a (second) back stairwell discreetly tucked away offers access to the upper floors. Off to one side of the inner hallway is the breakfast room, an inviting space designed for everyday family dining. The traditional kitchen combines period charm and functionality. It has a range of fitted units, together with a gas cooker and a solid fuel stove. Off the kitchen is the back door providing convenient access to the outdoors, along with a utility room. Adjacent to this, there is a covered storage area, offering ample space for storing outdoor gear and gardening tools. Ascending the stairs to the first floor, one cannot help but notice the impressive height of the ceilings with ornate coving. These architectural features hark back to the original design of Inglewood, where the main living areas were situated upstairs, while the bedrooms occupied the lower level. Presently, the first floor boasts five generously sized bedrooms many of which are dual aspect, each adorned with large sash windows that flood the rooms with natural light. Additionally, there are two bathrooms equipped with a shower, hand basin and WC. On this level, you will also discover a quaint conservatory, which originally served as the front entrance to the property. Remnants of the original grandeur of this entrance remain intact, including a beautiful granite archway and fanlight. This charming space now serves as a sun filled retreat, offering views of the surrounding gardens and over the river Urrin valley. GARDENS & GROUNDS Approaching Inglewood, the journey unfolds along a 300 meter-long tarmac avenue, flanked by lush beech hedging and a mixed species wood. As you travel, your gaze is captured on the right side, by an impressive historic aqueduct, a testament to the area's history, an engineering marvel and is a beautiful feature along the entrance. As you arrive at the house, it commands attention from its elevated position, facing southward towards the River Urrin. This river gracefully winds its way around the property, serving as both a picturesque backdrop and a natural boundary along the land holding. As a tributary of the River Slaney, the Urrin enjoys a seasonal run of sea trout during the summer months of July and August and the riverside setting is a charming amenity to the property. Surrounding the house, you will find lawns, colourful shrubs, and potted flowers, along with tall evergreen trees offering shade and privacy. Behind the house, which is also accessed via a back lane, there is a yard with various outbuildings, kennels and a garage for storage and other purposes. There is also a stand-alone hayshed at the rear lane. Beyond the immediate surroundings and gardens of the house, the lands extend into five paddocks. The lands are easily accessed, are well serviced with water and have a mix of well defined natural hedgerow, fencing and river boundaries. These quality lands will be suitable for any livestock including horses, cattle and sheep. There is a small mixed wood along the entrance avenue. In total the property lands extend to 11.07 hectares (27.32 acres).
