Ivy Cottage Features
Where possible, this luxurious farmstead has been sympathetically restored with materials which have been reclaimed from the original house. The rest has been sourced from the length and breadth of Ireland including the original ironmongery gates, heavy stone slates, cast iron gutters, stone window sills and oak lintels.

With special care taken to emulate its former glory, this linear two storey farmhouse has at its heart a welcoming family kitchen with handmade furniture and an original Aga.

Just off the kitchen is the Sun Room where you can take full advantage of the stunning views across the fields. A scullery and back hallway lead through to the back door and out to the farmyard. Step into the ‘Good Room’ and you’re stepping into something extra special. Its main feature is a period chimney piece, with the ambience of the room enhanced by a beautiful chequered wooden ceiling.

Up to the first floor and into the main bedroom, transformed from the loft of the barn section of the farmhouse where views of both the paddock and the Valley can be enjoyed. Spacious dressing rooms and interesting nooks and crannies lead to the washroom. The remaining 3 bedrooms are of good proportions and are complimented by planked Oak doors. The grounds around the property consist of a double garage and stables, with loose boxes that have been formed from the existing cart house and original barn. The garden store, potting shed and a study, off the vegetable garden and paddock, cluster around the main farmhouse.
