TUCKED AWAY IN the quiet Co Longford countryside, this four-bed period residence is quite the find. 

Spanning 1,830 sq ft, Dromard House sits on 8.7 acres, with a site that includes two detached studios/office spaces for home working or other projects. The whole lot is on the market for a sweet €425,000.

Built around 1920, the house has been gradually refurbished and redecorated over the years, making for a charming and attractive country-style home.

The ivy-clad property is accessed via a neat tree-lined driveway which splits the site in two, with mature gardens, the studios and paddock fields on one side, and paddocks and planted land on the other.

Stepping inside, the front door opens to an entrance porch which is also used as a reading area. The main hallway features its original tiled floor, with the drawing room and sitting room on either side.

The sitting room benefits from an original fireplace and a south-facing window which overlooks the gardens, while the drawing room features double sash windows and a solid fuel burning stove. All sash windows are double glazed and newly installed.

The kitchen is to the rear of the house and features double glass doors which open to the south-facing patio area, nicely extending the living space and allowing for ample natural light. An oil-fired range cooker in the kitchen heats the home, while wall and floor units provide plenty of storage space.

There’s a sizeable utility/cloakroom off the kitchen, plus a bathroom with a shower.

Moving to the first floor, there are four bedrooms and the family bathroom with a jacuzzi here. The master bedroom is particularly spacious, with large sash windows which overlook the front of the house.

Outside, the stable block studio space features beautiful exposed stone walls, wood panelled high ceilings and a solid fuel stove. Double glass doors open to the garden and bring the outside in.

The other wooden studio is smaller and more suited for use in the warmer months, with mature shrubs and trees – and a small lake – making it an idyllic spot for unwinding.

Thanks to its quiet countryside location, peacefulness and tranquility abound at Dromard House. Drumlish village is a 10-minute drive away, while Arvagh village in Co Cavan can be reached within the same amount of time.
