Complete Property Restoration and Extension

This is an example of a HTML caption with a link.

Valley of the Hare, County Kerry, Ireland

Complete property restoration of this farmhouse, named Valley of the Hare, began in May 2008 and lasted approximately 18 months.  This was an ambitious project to take on as a first development due to the condition of the property when it was bought - photos provided here.

Our brief to the architect was simple:

  • To provide plans for a three bedroom, three bathroom home which has contemporary interiors whilst incorporating the traditional outbuildings into the footprint of the property. 

The Outcome

Despite challenges along the way this property restoration was completed successfully.  The finished results have exceeded our expectations and go to prove that a little creativity and a lot of hard work go a long way.

We are now successfully managing Valley of the Hare as a luxury holiday let.

Due to its excellent location along the beautiful Ring of Kerry coastal route occupancy rates have been excellent.
