Sorrento Lodge in Seafield, on the outskirts of Tralee in Co Kerry, has a riverstone-capped boundary wall, handsome proportions and stellar sea and mountain views from most of its windows.

The detached house, which has been extended and updated by its current owner, is in turn-key condition and boasts a decent C2 Ber, thanks to the refurbishment works done in 2015 and 2016.

The original house dates to the 1800s and the owner has made use of its heritage by exposing some of its original stone and brickwork to give a sense of texture to both its interior and exterior walls.

In the open-plan living room cum kitchen, for example, there is a bare-brick fireplace surround into which she has installed a wood-burning stove, set on a dais.

This is a gorgeous, dual-aspect room that is decorated in a classic-contemporary fashion. Light-filled, it boasts a vaulted ceiling and its kitchen units are set out in an L-shape with a separate island giving plenty of worktop space.

The room also opens out to the very sizeable garden, which has a paved patio and is bounded by stone walls and mature trees that give lots of valuable shelter in such a coastal setting.

The garden, which is mainly laid out in lawn, is divided into two distinct areas giving kids plenty of space to kick a ball about safely.

The house has four bedrooms, two of which are en suite. The main bathroom has a separate shower and a freestanding roll-top bath.

While the main house is in walk-in condition, there is an outhouse in the grounds that could, over time, be converted into a studio or separate home office.

This detached property, which extends to 200sq m (2,152sq ft) and is set on 0.7 of an acre, is on the side of a quiet road, on the southern outskirts of Tralee. Kerry airport is a 20-minute drive. It is a five-minute drive to Fenit, 10 minutes from Barrow Beach and the Arnold Palmer-designed course at Tralee Golf Club.
