Bungalow bliss in beautiful Barrymore
Set on the western shore of Lough Ree on the Roscommon side of Athlone, Barrymore is one of Athlone's most sought-after and exclusive residential areas. Located a few minutes walk from The Hodson Bay Hotel and Athlone Golf Club, the surroundings are an idyllic rural haven and yet this area is less than a ten-minute drive away from the centre of Athlone town and M6 Dublin/Galway motorway Access. The Paddock is offered for sale with a pricetag of €649,950.
Travelling up the long driveway to this exceptional quality residence, with impressive terraced mature landscaped gardens either side, the long feature roof to ground windows to the front of the property immediately catches the eye on approach.
This is four-bedroom property with personality and warmth which envelops you as soon as you step inside. The spacious dimensions of the hallway and the highly polished tiles make a grand entrance space, and it quickly becomes obvious that the interiors properly do the appealing facade justice. It has a modern and fresh look with traditional elements which marries sophistication and laid-back schemes perfectly.
There is a sense of flow into the kitchen where a muted palette and classic cabinetry has been kept minimal and handle-less to enhance the pared-back elegance. There is a large feature island with open-plan dining area.
The kitchen comes complete with all Neff appliances, double ovens and 5 ring induction hobs, warming drawer, dish washer and Quooker instant hot water tap in kitchen with hot and cold taps also available. A new conservatory has been fitted off the kitchen - perfect for summer dining and entertaining overlooking the rear gardens providing privacy to enjoy a glass of wine.
The layout results in a wonderfully convivial kitchen that flows into a dining space which in turn leads to a sitting area. This open-plan layout is given a sense of continuity thanks to the engineered timber floor that flows throughout all the spaces.
There is a cohesive feeling throughout the living space yet with each room having its own identity and nowhere more so than in the separate lounge with its high ceiling, grand proportion, wooden beams and solid fuel stove sitting against a background of exposed stone which creates a relaxed rustic look.
In the master bedroom serenity is merged with sophistication through the use of a calming colour palette, mirrored wardrobes and a high quality ensuite bathroom. All plumbing and electrics in the property have been recently replaced with a 5-bar pump for power showers in main bathroom and the ensuites fitted.
Externally, there are two storage sheds with outside boiler and WC (Shed 2 has work bench and shelving throughout with roller door and wooden door access. The room is fully insulated with central heating and thermostat control heating and can easily be used for home business/office as there is a separate broadband present and power points throughout.
