It is rare to find a house that offers both residential and commercial property married together, but Summerhill does it extremely well, and we are delighted to bring it to market.
This is a spacious detached dwelling – presented in pristine condition – set on a c 2.6 acre site with yard and large workshop to rear (own entrance). As well as providing an excellent home, it will also accommodate a wide range of businesses. Knockbridge is a very popular rural community that is just c 5 km from Dundalk. Summerhill is situated off the Knockbridge to Louth road, in a very quiet and private setting.
The house is approx. equidistant between Knockbridge and Louth, and is c 9km from Dundalk. The house is situated at the end of a small road, and it has the benefit of four separate entrances: to the gated yard, a roller-door to the workshop, a gate to a field / grassed area and a separate entrance with electric gates to the house.
Firstly, the house. Presented in superb condition and extended to provide a lot of accommodation, this house ticks all boxes required for a quality family home. The front door leads to a clean, light-filled hallway that runs along the entire front of the house, and is finished with wooden floors. At the far right of the house is the kitchen – family diner. The triple oven range built into a country-style stone surround with exposed beams and tiled splashback is the centre piece of the kitchen.
Smart cabinetry makes the space very family friendly. Double doors lead to a very impressive family room with cathedral style ceiling and a show-stopping, bespoke light fitting that adds a lot of class. This room has double doors to front patio area. This room also has a large free standing stove set into a country-style surround and mantle. Off the kitchen is utility room and back door.
The lounge is a large room with wooden floor and open fireplace, as well as recess lighting. Further down the hallway is the very impressive main bathroom – it is panelled with free standing antique-style claw footing and separate shower, as well as a beautifully tiled floor. Bedroom 1 is a sweet bedroom (currently single but plenty space for double) with wooden floor.
The master bedroom with wooden floor, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite is also very spacious. Upstairs (passing another very impressive bespoke light fitting), are two further bedrooms. The first is a single room with built-in cabinetry and the second is a large double with en-suite bathroom.
Outside are gardens to front, and a grazing field beyond – with its own entrance. To rear is a substantial workshop with single skin roof and wc / whb. This building measures c 155 sq m at ground floor and additional storage of c 30 sq m at mezzanine. This building can be accessed directly from the lane (thanks to a c. 2.4 m high roller door) so can operate entirely independently of the house.
To rear of the workshop is an additional yard which is suited to many purposes and also has the benefit of a separate entrance. The field can also be accessed at the rear of the house. Joanne explains: “I was really impressed with this property. There’s so much to it, and it’s all so well thought out. With its 2.6 acres, house, grazing and workshop – this property could be many things: a home, a business, a small farm, a country lifestyle. In reality, it’s a perfect home that’s full of charm and home comfort, in outstanding condition.
