Sherwood House is, without a doubt, one of the most attractive properties that DNG McCormack has seen in recent times and we cannot wait to share this rare opportunity to own a restored, characterful farmhouse with prospective buyers. Situated in Kilbride, Co. Carlow, the property is within easy reach of many locales, just 5 minutes from the quaint village of Ballon, 20 minutes from Carlow town, and approximately 1 hour from the M50 in Dublin. Approached via a gated entrance along a tree lined driveway, this unique and secluded property makes an instant impact. The residence itself extends to a generous 248 m² and presents as a spacious 4-bedroom home. Upon entering, you are greeted by a double height hallway with chandelier, that maximises the light and affords beautiful views of the mature garden. The house has been completely modernized, but also retains all its farmhouse charm with original granite arch in the kitchen and exposed granite walls throughout. Just wait till you see the master bedroom that not only boasts a large en-suite with walk in shower and up to the minute sanitary ware, but also has a charming free-standing bath under an apex roof with garden views. The property also has three reception rooms - a family room with casual dining area, a formal sitting room, and a formal dining room.
A large stone cottage running perpendicular to the main residence has great development potential (subject to planning). There is ample storage space to the rear of the cottage as well as a fully insulated two-storey barn which is suitable for a variety of uses. It is impossible to detail here all the delights to be found at Sherwood House, and we urge you to come discover them for yourself.
