* Watch our walk-through video *
‘Glenard’ is a wonderful example of how to bring out the character and best aspects of a property with a sensitive approach to renovation and extending an existing simple single storey country dwelling. The result in this case is a warm inviting and comfortable three bedroom home with lots of interesting nooks and crannies suitable for home office, playroom or just extra storage. The external appearance of ‘Glenard’ is deceptive but once inside the bright airy accommodation is both surprising and pleasing. The cottage style kitchen is located to the front with its cream painted units, quarry tiled floor and large range cooker. The first of the bedrooms is to the right off the entrance hall. It has a corner window and original cast iron Victorian fireplace. The second of the bedrooms is to the rear again with feature antique fireplace. Across from this is the lovely old-world bathroom, with freestanding roll top bath, high wall cistern and panelled walls and bath surround. At the back of the house and spanning the whole of the rear is the modern two storey extension with distinctive mansard roof which incorporates a large bright and airy sitting room featuring French doors opening on to covered west facing veranda. Upstairs is the master bedroom with ensuite shower room, a separate wc/whb. along with two further rooms located in the attic area of the original house. Both have windows and are used as home.office and a spare room.
Situated just off the R132 (old N1) approx. 3km south of Dunleer village on an elevated site with wonderful rustic views, Glenard is approached through electric ranch style gates and has a tarmac driveway surrounding the house. This facilitates ample parking area and the convenience of being able to enter and exit with ease. The extensive gardens are laid out in lawns and shrubbery with several patio areas dotted around the grounds to catch the sun from all angles.
