A charming 18th century farmhouse set in private grounds
Cormaddyduff House is a charming period farmhouse with wonderful gardens all of which are set within 1.97 ha / 4.87 acres.
Belived to date from the 1770's and benefiting from a renovation in the mid 1990's, this fine home is idyllically positioned on a quiet country road in the heart of the Lake County, County Cavan. The house is presented in walk in condition.
Cormaddyduff House is entered through electric gates and approached via a stunning tree-lined driveway over a stone bridge. A gravelled courtyard is positioned at the front of the property with an attractive stone wall surround. From here the view of the gardens and grass lands can be enjoyed in full. There are also paved patio areas at each side of the house to catch the morning and evening sun.
Internally, the house is filled with natural light, all rooms being at least double aspect, some triple aspect and all having lovely views. The ground floor accommodation comprises a welcoming hall with attractive Italian slate tiled floor and access to the living room, sitting room, upstairs accommodation and also a guest WC with bath.
The living room is the focal point of the house and has solid wood flooring, open hearth with wood burning stove and double doors to the outside patio area and kitchen. The room is light filled and as well as having living accommodation, it can also be used as a dining room when there are guests.
The sitting room is spacious and benefits from a large ornate cast-iron fireplace with multi-fuel burner with a feature fireplace and double doors to the side of the house and patio.
The kitchen is located to the rear of the property and there are fine fitted solid maple units with polished granite worktops, integrated appliances and a pantry attached. The rear of the house and courtyard can be accessed from the kitchen also.
Upstairs there are two large double bedrooms with master en suite which includes a bath, shower and beautiful fitted storage space. The rooms are well finished with wooden flooring and pitched ceilings. As is common with period properties, both bedrooms come with a feature fireplace.
