Drum East is a compact residential and equestrian holding extending to about 4.23 acres with a private situation. At the core of the property is a fine detached country home set amongst mature gardens and grounds. The property includes a useful range of outbuildings and a ring-fenced block of farmland.

Built in 1996, the design to replicate a traditional old-style cottage with stone-fronted façade which exudes charm and provides comfortable accommodation laid out over two levels.

The position of the property away from the road, together with mature hedges and trees bordering the periphery, offers privacy and seclusion to appreciate the surrounding nature and grounds that this home occupies. Accessed off the L3406 Drum East Road, the entrance road leads over a brook to a wrought-iron gated entrance which continues up a tree-lined gravel driveway towards the front of the house.

Entering firstly into an entrance porch, this opens into an inviting entrance hall which offers access to the main reception rooms on the ground floor. Cleverly, in the entrance hall the current owners have incorporated an array of windows including an exquisite decorative stained-glass pane that looks into the hallway, allowing light to filter through. To the right of the entrance hall as you enter is a living room which features dual aspect windows, a large feature bay window and an antique fireplace with a wood burner stove, ideal for those warm cosy evenings.

There is also a downstairs WC and a second family/living room off the entrance hall. A feature of this living space is the rustic wooden beams along with the open fireplace and French doors which open out to a south-facing terrace area.

Accessed off the hall is a charming traditional style kitchen/dining room which has a rustic yet contemporary feel, sympathetically blending the traditional Irish country cottage with modern living standards. The fully fitted kitchen boasts beautiful pine finished fitted units along with an oil-fired AGA. Off the kitchen is the utility room with a Belfast style sink.

In the entrance hall an attractive white staircase with a gorgeous contrasting banister leads you to the first floor-level with a spacious fully carpeted light-filled landing area. The master bedroom features an ensuite and a fully walk-in-wardrobe. There are two further bedrooms on this floor along with a family bathroom and a separate WC. All bedrooms enjoy beautiful views overlooking the grounds.

In all the accommodation extends to about 1,819 sq ft/169 sq m in total.

To the side of the house is a large yard area comprising 3 stables, a tack room, 4 additional outbuildings and also a Dutch barn that is in superb condition and very neatly presented.

Gardens & Grounds
Externally the property is complimented by outstanding gardens and grounds. There are lawned areas surrounding the house, all enclosed by mature hedges and specimen trees. The garden is low maintenance, but the design is impactful.

Sand Arena
The sand arena on site is located adjacent to the stables and is well fenced. It is currently in need of some maintenance as it has not been used in recent years.

The farmland at Drum East is currently laid out in a ring-fenced block surrounding the property. Currently in permanent pasture, the land is set out in a number of different size paddocks which are suitable for the grazing of animals. It is currently used as an equestrian holding but is suitable for all types of hobby farming interests.
