Here's an enchanting Irish farmhouse on the market, nestled four kilometers from the quaint village of Craughwell, just off the old Dublin road. A unique residence steeped in history, offering a delightful glimpse into Irish country living. Imagine waking up every morning in the heart of the Irish countryside, surrounded by verdant fields and crisp, fresh air.

As you approach this two-storey farmhouse, you'll be greeted by an inviting open plan sitting room adorned with a magnificent fireplace, equipped with a solid fuel stove. Two cozy rooms flank the sitting room—one boasting an open fireplace, and the other an electric stove. These rooms can be utilized as comfortable downstairs bedrooms, or repurposed as versatile spaces to suit your needs. Nestled behind the sitting room, you'll find the kitchen, complete with a door that leads you to the breathtaking outdoors.

Upstairs, there are three spacious double bedrooms and a main bathroom featuring a bath and shower. Although it has been lived in quite recently, the residence needs some updating to meet modern living standards.

Here are some of the more recent upgrades that have been carried on the property:

* Insulated floors at ground level, complete with a radon barrier

* Additional insulation in the gable ends
* Newly installed bathroom
* Quality double-glazed PVC windows throughout the farmhouse
* Double-glazed PVC doors installed front and rear

The farmhouse is situated in an excellent location—just five minutes from Craughwell and ten from Kilcolgan. The outhouses offer an exciting opportunity for secondary income should you wish to develop them into vacation rentals, yoga studios, artist retreats, bakeries, or anything your heart desires.

Further, the house stands on about an acre of land, featuring beautiful gardens, a paddock, and the aforementioned orchard. Nearby, an ancient cobblestone walkway will lead you directly to the Rahasane Turlough, Ireland's largest winter lake. This is a designated Nature Reserve, spanning 690 acres and serving as a sanctuary for an array of flora, fauna, and birdlife. The crystal clear Dunkellin river meanders through this Turlough during the summer months.
