THE PROPERTY

“Innisfree” dates back to the very early 1900s – an imposing period family home which has been lovingly maintained throughout the years by its current owners. Whilst approaching the house via a sweeping driveway one can appreciate the sheer elegance of Innisfree’s exterior with its front elevation showcasing a picturesque veranda, beautiful sash windows and a solid hall door framed with individual glass panels that sets the tone for what lies the other side.

Once inside the property, the feeling of a bygone era complimented by the overall lovely condition, allows one to instantly feel assured that “Innisfree” will more than adequately serve the needs of today’s modern family. On opposite sides of the hallway there is a drawing room and dining room. These rooms feature marble fireplaces, high ceilings, ceiling coving and picture rails. The drawing room boasts a large bay window overlooking the lawned front garden with sweeping driveway. The cosy tv /living room, further down the hall is host to a cast iron stove. The kitchen cum breakfast room is spacious and overlooks the rear garden and leads out to a back hall and utility area. Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms and a family bathroom over two levels. The Master bedroom enjoys views of the front garden and beyond through its own bay window.

Additional special features throughout the property include wide plank timber floorboards, treated internal doors, dado rails and a stunning hardwood staircase with feature stained glass window on the return landing.

The mature south facing garden to the front is very private and comprises of a large lawned area with mature specimen trees, shrubs, boundary and clipped hedging. This is a genuine and tranquil space as the property is situated so far back from the road. Garden lovers will delight in the overall maturity of the gardens and their manageable size. To the side of the house there is lots of room which leads to the rear patio enclosed by a wall and opens on to a lawned garden. There are two purpose-built outhouses.

“Innisfree” is an idyllic winter house as much as it is a summer one where one can conjure up images of atmospheric lantern lights flickering through the sash windows at Christmas and in turn envisage enjoying cool drinks whilst relaxing on the south facing veranda on warmer summer evenings.
