On nearly 1.5 acres, this former 19th century farmhouse has been extended and renovated but has paid respect to the period by using limestone plaster and retaining features such as granite fireplaces and sash windows. Additions include wood-burning stoves, triple glazing and a heat recovery system. At ground level is a kitchen/dining room with arched granite fireplace, two living rooms (one with glazed doors to the garden), utility and toilet. Upstairs are four bedrooms, and huge glazed doors face Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs Mountains. There are outbuildings and an artist’s studio. BER: C3 

Plus: Great setting with indigenous materials including granite and limestone

Minus: Kitchen could be in a brighter part of the house
