MANY PEOPLE DAYDREAM of upping sticks for a quieter life surrounded by nature, miles from any town. But the reality of this is often quite different when it comes to nipping out for milk or the daily school run.

So, if you’re craving peace and quiet without total isolation, one house that may be a great compromise is this one in the townland of Killeenmore. This quaint 126 m² home is just a short drive from Tullamore, Co Offaly and is now on the market for €380,000.

A house with two bedrooms, no doubt it would suit a small family who value their own personal space. The layout offers both open and closed plan living comprising a welcoming entrance hallway with a terracotta tiled floor that leads to a guest toilet and a sitting room full of character.

From the open fireplace and limestone mantlepiece to the exposed beams and a continuation of the terracotta tiles, this is a homely and inviting room. It’s not cramped thanks to the mezzanine overhead and the dining area is raised, which adds interest as well as cleverly zones the space.

At the opposite end of this room, the kitchen is accessed by a few steps and a handy utility room with a connection to the garden sits to the side of it. The terracotta tiles continue throughout the rooms so there’s a nice flow from one room to the next.

There’s also a beautiful sunroom just off the sitting room that has a view of the garden. The mezzanine that hangs over the lounge is currently a bright home office and there’s also an extra storage room off it.

The bedrooms complete the rooms downstairs. They’re both spacious enough for double beds and have an en suite bathroom each, too.

Sitting on just over half an acre, the cut stone house with its facade covered in Virginia creeper, sits behind electric gates and looks out on a large lawn, a number of mature trees and a patio area from which you can take it all in.
