Imposing period property in a lakeside village setting
Although built in the Victorian era, Robin Hill is a gracious Georgian-style double bay residence which has played an important role in the history of Lough Gowna since it was built c. 1850.
Robin Hill is in-walk in condition with plenty of space for expanding families and excellent entertaining space for buyers who may wish to use Robin Hill as a weekend or summer retreat.
The accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises entrance porch, hallway, dual aspect kitchen/dining room, family room, living room and sunroom, study/lounge, utility room, larder and bathroom. The wood burning stoves in the study/lounge and family room give a lovely snug atmosphere to the rooms and the Aga cooker adds a homely feel to the modern kitchen space. The living room has an open fire which adds a cosy ambiance on cold winter nights.
Upstairs there are six bedrooms of which four are double rooms. The two main bedrooms to the front of the house are very generously proportioned and could accommodate an en suite. These front rooms are filled with light as they have a dual aspect with views over the gardens. There is also a family bathroom on this level.
As evident from the photos, the property is very well cared for and requires little, if any, works, to appeal to modern buyers.
Robin Hill is approached by a short drive flanked on either side by mature trees and opens upon arrival at the forecourt. There is also a vehicular access to the property from the school side which brings you to the rear of the house.
The house sits amidst wonderful private gardens with many fine specimen trees and shrubs including mature Scots Pine, Wellingtonia, Wisteria, Laburnum, native Oak, Beech and fruit trees including apple, plum, cherry and pear. While the property is located in the centre of the village, the trees offer a sense of security and privacy.
The lawns are well tended and surround the house with direct access from the porch, sunroom, study and kitchen/dining room. The boundary is walled on the village sides which adds an extra layer of privacy and seclusion while the two other boundaries are tree and hedgerow-lined with agricultural lands on the far side.
The paddock is laid out in one division and has a hedgerow boundary with a stream on the south west side. These lands are multi-functional but would ideally suit a family who require space for a horse or pony.
There is also a garage with a shutter door together with a large storage shed and fuel shed all in one block.
