The magnificent home is accessed via wrought electronic gates with stone pillars along a private driveway which is lined with trees. With five bedrooms and four bathrooms, the house is not lacking in space or character with its imposing stone front.

The entrance hall boasts reclaimed timber flooring, spot-lighting and a fabulous floor-to-ceiling stone feature with stove insert. French doors in the hall lead into the drawing room, which features three stunning large windows, a limestone fireplace with stove and gorgeous coving.

Another set of French doors leads into a generous living room with large windows which fill the room with natural light.

This room then leads onto a beautiful dining room which has access to the conservatory which leads out into the beautiful back garden of the house. A stunning lawn, surrounded by trees, helps to create a serene atmosphere that is perfect for dining al fresco in warmer months.

The kitchen and breakfast space are complete with Chinese slate flooring in the kitchen and parquet timber flooring in the breakfast room. A rustic stone wall feature gives the kitchen an old-time feel, along with the arch which leads to the dining area. The high ceilings of the kitchen create space and it is fully furnished with granite countertops, Belfast sink and an electric AGA stove.

The breakfast area is complete with two wonderful window seats which are perfect for your morning coffee.

Upstairs there is the spacious master suite complete with walk-in wardrobe. The room has front-facing windows which provide views of acres of land.

The ensuite, with tiled flooring and under-floor heating, has a vintage style bath, shower and imperial wash-basin.

Four other bedrooms complete the first floor, with two including an ensuite. Each is spacious with polished timber flooring and storage space. Big windows ensure each will be filled with light throughout the day.

Outside a large back garden is situated at the rear of the house, with a patio area and raised deck. A separate road entrance to the house is here also.

The five acres of land which come with the house possesses lawns, an orchard area, three paddocks and a stable block and arena. The stable block has four stable units and two outhouses.

At €1,300,000, Rockbarton isn’t cheap but it is stunning and one can always dream.
