Description

Distinctive architecturally designed residence where old meets new, in much sought after location in Callow Foxford. An architect-designed family home blends the modern with the traditional. Callow Lakes are situated close to the N26 Foxford - Swinford road. The two lakes (north and south) are approximately 100acres each and are joined by a narrow channel, which is navigable throughout the season.

'Barn' extension to existing traditional Irish cottage. It was on this basis that the 'Registered Architect, Mark Stephens MRIAI' (www.markstephensarchitects.com) remodelled, refurbished and extended this house. The new works included a new kitchen dining and living area with a new hall up to a new bathroom and two new bedrooms with access to a new deck and balcony. The existing cottage was 871 sq. ft. and the completed residence is now 2475 sq. ft.

The property is hidden from the road and is extremely private. The exterior of the extension has a white-painted render to the ground floor and western cedar to the first floor. There is a stainless-steel balcony on the first floor making the most of the views of the surrounding countryside. The detached house has all rooms laid out, in such a way to take full advantage of the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. This is achieved by the architect’s use of French doors, windows, stainless steel balcony and timber decking area.
