Killorglin, Kerry, €399,000

This dormer Kerry home at Ardmoniel, on 1.25 acres at Killorglin’s Annadale Road, is a bit two-faced.

On its approach side it’s mostly wall, with a few slender windows either side of the front door with its distinctive conical slate roof, and couple of overhead small Veluxes sort of complete the private picture, But, spin around to the other side, and all is revealed: no less than five dormer windows on the roof line, and as many ground floor windows as well, giving all of the main rooms garden and mountain views.

Built now for a decade or two, this 3,200 sq ft five-bed is described as “probably the most prestigious property on the market in the Killorglin area,” notes selling agent Edmond O’Donoghue, who prices the privately-set home accordingly at €399,000.

Although integrating lots of quality features and finishes, it has a bit of a look ‘of its time’ such as stone-effect walls in the stairwell, dark-timbered joinery and teak kitchen units.

It’s all stuff that could easily enough be given a visual lift by new owners, who’ll appreciate the sheer amount of space and accommodation, inside and out: there are three reception rooms, plus study, for example, the house links into the garage, and one of the bathrooms has a steam room.

VERDICT: All this, and Reek views too.
