The home is discreetly located at the end of a long private driveway in a delightfully rural and private setting close to the Ring of Kerry with views of the MacGillycuddy's Reeks. This unique and wonderful home is perfect as a working home with two fantastic studios, easily adaptable to large living rooms or a stunning master bedroom on the upper floor.
Surrounded by an extensive terraced garden and its own pond to the south, the house sits amidst its own mixed woodlands and pasture totalling 18 acres. The house internally is 295 sqm and was designed by the award winning architect Johannes G�tz in collaboration with the current owners.
The house is particularly notable for its high sustainability and energy efficiency values due to the combination of breathable Poroton clay bricks with excellent thermal properties and a water source heat pump, which uses the pond water to generate heat. The house is set back from the public road through a sweeping driveway, which is an extremely discreet entrance guaranteeing ultimate privacy. Its silhouette observes the simple form of traditional Irish buildings with its natural stone exterior. The proportions are elegant and simple. The entrance leads into a conservatory, revealing the view of the MacGillycuddy's Reeks.
The property is in a fantastic unique rural location which
combines privacy and a feeling of country side life with easy
access to Rossbeigh Beach, MacGillycuddy's reeks, the Ring
of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. Killorglin, the nearby vibrant market town, known for Puck Fair in the Summer, has a wide range of shops and excellent schools.
