Coolnagour, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. X35P938
What makes a fabulous family home?
Should a home embody how we live and see ourselves
Should this be your retreat from the modern world
Should a home be able to adapt to your lifestyle and change your
family dynamic for the better
Should a fabulous home be only 5 mins from a town centre and have all schools and activities on its door step
Coolnagour is an extremely rare property. From the charming main home with classic vintage features to the rustic stables and barns that are ready to be reimagined spaces, it embodies both family and lifestyle choices. Set on a mature site of 2.12 acres located approximately three miles from Dungarvan, it offers ample space for adventures and exploring.
Since the mid-1800s, Coolnagour has been creating family memories for the people lucky enough to call it home. From the large kitchen table, which serves as the centre point of the spacious kitchen, thousands of precious moments have been created. The living room is an informal link between the kitchen and the rest of the house. In this spacious room, you are drawn to the open fireplace, which is surrounded by comfortable couches for late evening chats. A formal drawing room offers a sanctuary of peace and quiet in which to reflect and relax. An amazing marble fireplace serves as a focal point in this room, whilst two large windows allow the light to flow in. The hall boasts a solid wood floor and an impressive winding staircase that leads up to the first floor and landing. The landing hosts three spacious bedrooms, of which the master bedroom has an en suite and a large walk-in wardrobe.
The house has a mature garden, which is strategically designed to ensure feasts for the eye across the seasons. In Spring, a stunning magnolia tree offers a breath-taking centrepiece whereas in summer, landscaped flower beds generate a kaleidoscope of colour. The picturesque entrance and lunging ring are beautifully framed by magnificent copper beech trees, which have proudly guarded the house for generations. The cobblestoned driveway is set against the stunning backdrop of the Brickey Valley and arches into a spacious parking area across which the ivy-clad main dwelling casts her majestic gaze. Toward the rear of the garden, the exposed original wall of the circa 1850 build offers a magical backdrop against which budding photographers can capture timeless memories.
Located at the rear of the house is a beautiful courtyard, which offers a spectacular setting for long summer evenings sitting out and reconnecting with family and friends. The central square is surrounded by an array of enchanting stone outbuildings built in circa 1875. The courtyard hosts six stables along with several barns and outhouses that offer ample storage space. The courtyard leads out to the paddock, which surrounds the house and is also accessible from the road.
