Architecturally designed & deceptively spacious country retreat nestled among lush mature landscaped grounds laid out in an organic manner with views of the west Sligo rugged coastline.
This three / four bedroom unique & full of design country cottage comes new to the market set within 1.5 acres of well thought out organic landscaped grounds.
Rarely does a property with such design & character come to the market and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
Brought back to life from an old derelict cottage by its current owners, the new building was built in a three parallel layout, keeping the rooflines low and each building stepped to the side to maximise views from each building out across the landscaped gardens to the rolling countryside, stunning mountains, and the rugged coastline.
The main cottage to the front is where the main living areas are, the timber building to the rear is the private sleeping quarters, and the connecting building is a glass atrium and is a flexible living space comfortable for year-round use. The atrium is the centre feature of this wonderful residence and is used as a dining room for entertaining large groups, yoga classes, play area for children & a handy green house for growing tomatoes, chillies, aubergines etc.
A wonderful feature of this home is that you can see into many other parts of the building from one spot. Natural light & reflections fill different rooms at certain times of the day owing to the stepped nature of the buildings.
There is even a nod to the old animal shed that used to sit at the end of the original cottage with a lower curved tin roof now housing the utility and boot room.
The light filled accommodation comprises of entrance porch with sea views, large central sitting room with solid fuel stove & bifold doors leading into the atrium, bright & spacious kitchen with extensive range of fitted units with large range cooker, skylights and picture window to the front with beautiful sea views, spacious utility / boot room with fitted units, home office with sea views, shower room, mezzanine looking down over the sitting room, versatile light filled atrium linking well with the sunny patio & garden, three sizable bedrooms (one with ensuite & walk in wardrobe), spacious internal hallway & a well equipped house bathroom.
The property also has a very impressive B3 energy rating.
The mature grounds of this fine home only serve to further enhance it, with a sunny south facing aspect the gardens are surrounded by mature trees & hedging which creates a sense of complete seclusion from the world. The landscaped grounds are just an oasis of calm developed in an organic manner laid out in lawns, mature hedging, colourful shrubberies, magical pathways, sunny private patio for alfresco dining linking well with the house, sheltered areas for sitting / playing & a vegetable garden with raised beds & fruit bushes.
Within the site there is also four outbuildings suitable for a variety of different uses and ample car parking to the front with long driveway up from the road.
This stunning home also benefits from beautiful sunrises over the hills and incredible sunsets out to sea with the warm glow filling the atrium with golden light.
Located in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty between Kingsmountain and the west Sligo coastline near Templeboy in a quiet country setting. The N59 Sligo to Ballina road is only a short drive away with easy access to both Sligo city & Ballina town.
Situated within a great community with good amenities including, local market, local sports, sea swimming, top class surfing & mountain biking trails. The ever-popular Pudding Row restaurant in Easkey and the authentic old world Beach Bar and restaurant at Aughris are also only a short drive away.
Viewing highly recommended to really appreciate this wonderful property and all it has to offer.
