Stunning former farmhouse up for sale – take the tour

A stunning former farmhouse that is now a wonderful family home is being put up for sale with an asking price of €397,000.

Rockfield Carrigavantry is located in Tramore, Co Waterford and with four spacious double-bedrooms it is the ideal home to raise a family.

The current owners have spent 20 happy years in Rockfield but have decided now is the right time to sell as they move into their 70s and want something a little smaller.

Eric and Sally are ready to move on but have a long history with Rockmount. Sally revealed they first spotted the home when they were living in neighbouring city Waterford.

She said: “One day when we were out walking we spotted the house, but it was a wreck.

“I said to Eric at the time that it would make a lovely home for someone, but we are not very practical people and we didn’t want to take on a big project, so we more or less forgot about it. And then a man from the area who worked in construction and had been living in Australia bought the house in 1996. He did an amazing job of doing the place up. We were delighted to buy it in turnkey condition with all the hard work done.”

Sally and Eric had an architect add a home office, utility room and another en-suite bathroom and their dream home was complete.

The couple are now ready to move on and insist that Rockfield has all you could want in a spacious family home,

The ground floor features a sitting room, music room and home office so there is plenty of space for the whole family to do their own thing without getting in each other’s way.

The kitchen has a large connected pantry for food storage, and the dining features an extension onto the south- and west-facing patio making it easy to catch a few rays.

There is also a large utility room and toilet on the ground floor.

Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a family bathroom.

The front bedrooms have incredible view of the surrounding countryside towards the sea, with Tramore in distance.

The outside of the property has enough space for the new owners to create flowerbeds, lawns, vegetable plots or anything else they decide.
