Craving the country life?
If you’re ready to trade up and own a property with a paddock large enough for a pony, you may not need to look further than Carrigtwohill.
Just 15 minutes from the city, a dream home for the hobbyist equestrian has hit the market at €660,000; Blake Lodge in Ballinbrittig, Carrigtwohill has acres of space for an energetic family or an animal lover to grow into.
“This beautiful four bedroom 114 sq/m detached home was recently renovated and now has a modern feel with its split level accommodation.” said estate agent James Colbert of Colbert & Co, who are selling the property in collaboration with Baerz Luxury Homes.
“There is a large living area upon entrance, a separate dining area, and a newly fitted kitchen. The top floor also consists of a main bedroom with ensuite making it ideal for all stages of family life.”
The ground floor consists of three further bedrooms all with glass panel walls that allow sunlight to flow through. The main bathroom on this level is finished with floor-to-ceiling tiles and a walk-in shower.
With four acres of land included, opportunities abound outside.
“There is also a 2,000 sq/ft shed which could be used for business or pleasure (workshop or wedding venue), an electric charging point is in situ and an outside seated area for the evening sunset,” adds Colbert.
“Lastly there is an outdoor all-weather paddock to fulfil any equestrian needs. There is also the option to purchase further land should you wish to do so.”
Nearby Glounthaune and Carriogtwohill Village have a host of amenities including Fitzpatrick’s popular food store, The Elm Tree restaurant, Aldi, train station plus a wide choice of schools and sporting facilities.
