Superb detached stone fronted three storey family (240sqm / 2,568sq ft) home surrounded by an acre of mature lawns and shrubs.

The traditional facade to this lovely family home belies its contemporary interior layout and décor. Designed to blend in with its rustic surroundings, this stone faced three story house offers bright light filled accommodation in plenty, with south and west facing reception rooms, a warm and spacious kitchen/living dining area and four/five good size bedrooms spread over three floors. Outside there is a large double garage/store also stone faced to compliment the overall style of the property.

The enclosed entrance porch has a patterned tiled floor and double glass doors leading to the inner hall. To the left is the more formal of the reception rooms with solid timber floors and a feature wall mounted closed hearth fireplace as focal point to the room. On the right is the entrance to the open-plan living/dining/kitchen area which wraps around the southern façade of the house and opens on to a lovely sheltered paved patio and barbeque area. The floors here are timber and tiled and the living area features a contemporary free standing raised solid fuel stove. The kitchen is fitted out with solid timber hand painted wall and floor units, double Belfast sink and a very useful centre island which incorporates the gas hob and with extra storage below. An unusual and welcome feature of this kitchen is its fully shelved walk-in pantry/larder. The separate utility room boasts floor to ceiling storage and in turn opens into the rear porch which is currently fitted out as a boot room, ideal landing place for outdoor clothing, sports gear and even that bulky set of golf clubs!

Upstairs on the first floor are the main four bedrooms, master with en suite and walk in dressing room. Unusual design touches include a connecting door from the main bedroom into bedroom 2 to facilitate its use as a Nursery if required. The other feature on this floor is the Laundry room which as its name suggests, houses the washing machine and dryer along with shelving for linen storage, space for airing clothes and plenty of room for upright ironing board! The top floor comprises an open-plan study/playroom with shelving and wood burning stove and a separate office/den and shower room with shower, wc and whb.

Set back from the road and approached through electronically controlled timber gates, Tigh Carraig is situated approx. 8km north of Drogheda town, midway between the coast at Clogherhead and the M1 Motorway which is within a ten minute drive of this wonderful family home. Local amenities include excellent primary schools at both Walshestown and Sandpit, miles of safe sandy beaches at Clogherhead and Port, and two championship golf links courses at Baltray (Co. Louth) and Seapoint. The easily accessible M1 brings Dublin Airport and the city beyond to within a very reasonable commute of just 45 minutes.
