One of County Westmeath’s top residential holdings to come to the market in 2020. “Rose View”, a residential farm is set on c.71 acres of prime agricultural land and comes with 140 metres of road frontage. It is located close to Moate town, 15 minutes from Tullamore & Athlone and less than 50 minutes from the M50.
The traditional elevated 5 bedroom farmhouse is approached by a mature tree lined avenue set in the heart of the farm, together with outbuildings, hay sheds and other farm related buildings. The adjoining grass land farm is laid out in eleven good sized, well-shaped paddocks and is suitable for many farming enterprises. The property is speckled by magnificent beech and oak trees, mature hedgerows border the farm on one side while a stream encloses the land on the far end.
The farm benefits from c.140 metres of road frontage with possible development potential subject to planning approval. Outbuildings include traditional out houses, a 4 span “A” roof shed with an adjoining 4 span lean-to. The yard also contains two dung steads and two silage pits. The lands are fully equipped for livestock farming.
The charming residence includes entrance porch, two bright reception rooms, kitchen, utility, secondary bedroom and guest W.C. on the ground floor. Upstairs there are 4 well-proportioned bedrooms and family bathroom. Dual heating systems in the form of a range and an oil fired boiler heat the house. A statement slate fireplace takes centre stage in the parlour while upstairs three of the bedrooms have beautiful Art Nouveau fireplaces fitted.
The house has enormous adaptability, with its flexible floor plan and downstairs bedroom, it easily transcends the generations. ‘Rose View’ is so connected to nature it readily supports a wellness-based lifestyle.
PVC windows, doors, soffit and facia were upgraded approximately ten years ago and while the house requires modernisation, it does tell an evolving story. From its early fireplaces, through to the mid-century fitted wardrobes, the 1960’s very modern fitted kitchen and the early 1980’s aqua coloured wash hand basin with the mandatory matching splashback, this is sustainability at its best. A new roof embraced change in the 21st Century for Rose View. Clearly evident, the former owners continuously upgraded yet lovingly maintained the character of their precious home. Ballyscarvan is perfectly habitable and ready to move in to.
Outside the front and rear yards have a tarmacadam surface. ‘Rose View’ is a most enchanting space with a twist and turn behind every wrought iron gate.
Services include electricity and phone, water is via a private well and waste is treated via a septic tank.
