To look at Ashfield, a large home behind electric gates on Ballycorus Road, in Rathmichael, it’s hard to imagine it in its original incarnation: a 1940s built bungalow.

Now a two-storey five-bed spanning 318sq m (3,422sq ft), it has a spacious kitchen- cum-diningroom, an upstairs livingroom with balcony overlooking the rear landscaped gardens and ample storage.

A separate wood cabin has a kitchen, bathroom, livingroom and bedroom, while the garden has a pebbled front driveway, a large decking area and a concealed dog run around the perimeter of the garden.

On sale through Sherry FitzGerald with an asking price of €945,000, it feels spacious the moment you walk into the large hallway. To the right is the kitchen-cum-dining area with large central island and doors opening on to the rear decking, a familyroom and small guest bathroom. A utility room with lots of storage is tucked away behind the kitchen.

To the left is a front diningroom that could easily be used as a sixth bedroom, office or den. An office is located to the rear of the house, and at the end of the hall are two double bedrooms, one en suite.

Upstairs, the large livingroom has a feature fireplace, a balcony, and a window seat with storage to the front. The master bedroom is en suite with a walk-in wardrobe. Two further bedrooms – one single, one double with en suite – complete the upstairs.

Ashfield is a sizeable home with a large selection of rooms that a new owner could easily reconfigure to suit their family’s needs.
