O’Donovan and Associates are pleased to offer for sale this charming 4 bedroom residence and arboretum located in the beautiful town-land of Ballinvallig, Newcastlewest. Built thirty years ago by local master-builder John Shiels, about a kilometer from Newcastle West, this generously proportioned arch-fronted bungalow faced with Liscannor stone is set in a lovingly created one-acre arboretum boasting no fewer than sixty different tree species, including rarities such as ginkgo, pink pagoda and black walnut.
The bungalow featuring unusually high ceilings has four good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite bath and shower room to supplement the main family bathroom. There is a large kitchen-dining room, utility room, a cloakroom near the back door and an integrated garage. The property has oil-fired central heating supplemented by a back-boiler to the open fireplace in the lounge. From here French widows lead to a sunny, secluded patio facing south west and giving onto shrubberies, the sheltered lawn, vegetable patch and fruit orchard. A beautiful ornamental pond near the front gate is fed by the property’s own spring water well, dispensing with the need for piped town water.
There are two outhouses designed to match the house, one a solid fuel store, the other for garden equipment. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful family home just half a mile from Monagea school and church, with plenty of scope for personalising the décor. Viewing is strongly advised and strictly by appointment.
