Garden and Grounds
Woodside has a fabulous, large garden with summer house, lawn, shrubs, stone-chipped areas and raised vegetable beds, fruit bushes and apple trees. A fantastic garden for children, animals or anyone wanting a bit more space for growing, while providing privacy.
The garden has been designed for ease of maintenance with large areas of lawn to the front, side and rear with trees and shrubs. There is a rhubarb patch and mature apple trees, providing a high yield of desert and cooking apples. A paved patio area to the rear of the house looks onto raised beds for raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, strawberries and vegetables. A wide stone chip driveway leads from the road and provides parking space to the front and rear of the house along with access to the integral garage and the large wooden garage/workshop to the rear of the house. In the front garden there is a wooden summer house, perfect for a bit of peace and quiet, or for kids to play outside. The wooden garage/workshop to the rear of the house provides substantial storage space or could perhaps have potential to be a garden office. There is hedging to the front and sides and a well-maintained wooden fence to the rear with a wooden gate that provides access out into the woods. The cottage sits on a quiet cul de sac which dead-ends onto a large grassy track that leads along the edge of the woods, overlooking fields, past Snab of Moy livery stables, and into Culbin Forest. From an outdoor enthusiast’s point of view, this house is in an ideal position with access into 9,000 acres of Forestry Commission woods.
