Carnearney House was built in the 1930's and is a fabulous country home, cleverly designed with its dual aspect and bay windows which allow natural light to flood the principal rooms. This is a perfect family home with its large oak panelled hall, well proportioned reception rooms, spacious kitchen and 4+ bedrooms and three further attic rooms. Of the three bathrooms, two can be accessed directly from the master and guest bedroom or from the main landing. The property has been well maintained but now requires some renovation and modernisation and has been priced accordingly.
Outside there are four stables with tack room, feed store and adjacent manege. The driveway leads off the Carnearney Road under a canopy of trees to the front of the house where it divides into an 'island' with double garage which is integral to the house. The gardens are mature with lawns, a covered terrace which can be accessed diecrtly from the drawing room and a two tiered paved garden terrace.
