Surrounding the residence are landscaped gardens and lawns with shrubbery, and a tarmac entrance with a concrete path around the bungalow.

As well as equestrian pursuits, commenting on additional ventures, Tony said: “This property would also suit a hobby farmer or enthusiast who wished to keep sheep or for vegetable or market gardening purposes or horticulture use.

“The property was originally a part of a larger farm from which sections were sold off over the years.”

5-bed bungalow

The residence comprises a five-bed dormer bungalow. It is bright and spacious and very well presented.

“The property is finished to a high standard throughout and presented in superb condition,” detailed Tony.

The accommodation includes: a sitting room; a dining area; a kitchen/living area; a utility area; two bedrooms with en-suites; and an additional bedroom.

Upstairs are two further bedrooms and a main bathroom.

Viewing of the property is through Tony Mulvin. The guide price is €430,000.

Commenting on the market, Tony said: “The interest in the property is mostly local and those with equestrian interests would be among the leading enquirers.

“This is because of the scarcity of smaller holdings with both land and accommodation,” he concluded.
