A large modern house on the edge of Cavan town has a period look and wouldn’t seem out of place in a south Dublin suburb. But the four-bed built 17 years ago by Nicola and Grahame Morphey is for sale for €365,000, a fraction of the price it could command, say, in Foxrock, although bigger than the average asking price in County Cavan.

Colligan Lodge, Carrickane, Cavan, Co Cavan, a 212sq m (2,282sq ft) detached four-bed on around half an acre, is for sale through Sherry FitzGerald Declan Woods. The house is named after a house once owned by Nicola’s grandfather in Dungarvan, Co Waterford – and Dungarvan is where she and her husband Graham will be moving to, now that their children have left home.

The double-fronted exterior of Colligan Lodge has an Edwardian style. The sittingroom on the left of the front hall, like the drawingroom on the right, has a bay window looking over the front garden.

The drawingroom, oak-floored like the sittingroom, opens through French doors into the diningroom at the back of the house, which in turn opens through more French doors into the kitchen.

This has a ceramic-tiled floor, mint-green kitchen units and a Stanley range; there is a utility room off it. There is also a study, a fully-fitted office, on the ground floor, accessed from the sittingroom.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom off the landing. The main bedroom, like the drawingroom below, has a bay window. It also has an en suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. Floors upstairs are tongue-and-grooved white deal.

The owners modernised the plumbing five years ago: the house has mains water and a septic tank.

Outside, tall hedges surround large gardens: these include lawns, herb, fruit and vegetable gardens and a sunken garden with a water feature.

Colligan Lodge is about one-and-a-half kilometres from Cavan town, next to County Cavan Golf Club, according to agent Declan Woods and not far from the golf/spa Farnham Estate.
