Today’s tight planning conditions in this locality make it unlikely for many to acquire such a house and this is an opportunity to live an enviable life style in this popular location.

On arrival to North Ridge the panoramic views are immediately impacting and will arrest your attention. The site falls downward from the access road on an elegant driveaway and is privately tucked away offering a haven of peace. Built in 2003, this four bedroom, four bathroom family home stands impressively on the manicured gardens with easy to maintain lawns and established planting with sheltering hedge boundary. The grounds are finished to an impeccable standard with the most welcoming south westerly facing patio on limestone stone and granite cobble edging, the ideal al-fresco dining environment.

Inside the home continues to impress with high quality finishes, attention to detail and well thought out living areas, it is spacious throughout and extends to c. 261 sq.m. / 2,809 sq.ft. The owners have created a house where the focal point is the flowing reception rooms, which encompass an entrance hall leading through to the most impressive dual aspect living area with timber burning stove, an open plan kitchen with a light filled dining room that flows through to a room with multiple options to cater for changing stages of family life – it could be the ideal playroom or formal dining room or indeed library room. Just off the hallway is the dedicated home office with picture views and next to this the conversational sitting room with corner window that is beautiful in summer, and cosy in winter with a gas fire. All these areas drink in the arresting views and constant play of light and weather.

The four double bedrooms include a generous main bedroom suite with large walk- in wardrobe leading to the signature ensuite, here you will find the lavish ensuite has a large bath and high quality Grohe fittings. There is also a large attic that could seamlessly become additional living space as the roof has been designed without any central timber trusses and the generous width of the hall was purposeful to allow a staircase if one wished to convert the space.

All in all this most impressive property at North Ridge is a must view for any family seeking to locate in the south east of Ireland – a location of choice for many industry and business leaders, creative people, and those seeking a better and more beautiful way of life, while still being close to major hubs.
