A recently renovated 18th Century 4-bedroom cottage on about 4 acres nestled in the hills of East Mayo Nestled within almost 4 acres of landscaped grounds, Rose Cottage stands as a testament to meticulous restoration. This exquisite property combines two stone cottages from the 18th century, seamlessly linked to create a haven of timeless charm and elegance. At the heart of its landscaped mature gardens lies a captivating spring-fed pond, a sanctuary for an array of beautiful wildlife, enhancing the serene and private ambience that envelops the property. The journey to Rose Cottage begins with an impressive approach via 7-foot electric gates, leading down a hedge-lined 180-meter driveway, ensuring privacy and an immediate sense of arrival. The entire perimeter is securely fenced, with the frontage beautifully framed by over a thousand developing hornbeams, adding to the property' s lush greenery and secluded feel. The current owners have miraculously refurbished Rose Cottage and its grounds with a keen eye for detail and a commitment to preserving its historical integrity while introducing modern comforts. This includes extensive landscaping, the addition of functional outbuildings with electricity and heating, a new chicken coop, and a delightful playground set against the stunning backdrop of the surrounding countryside. Raised beds, a polytunnel, and several sheds further enhance the garden' s practicality and charm, inviting a sustainable lifestyle in tune with nature. Internally, Rose Cottage exudes character and warmth, boasting 4/5 bedrooms, offices, and 3 bathrooms, all designed to blend seamlessly with the property' s original features like exposed beams and stone walls. The kitchen, diner, and utility/storeroom offer modern conveniences without sacrificing the cottage' s rustic charm. Significant updates include the refurbishment of bathrooms and living areas, new chimneys, and barges; heating is supplied by both solid fuel back boiler and oil-fired central heating systems for year-round comfort. Safety and security are looked after too, with an extensive CCTV system and comprehensive external lighting throughout the gardens, ensuring peace of mind. There is significant garage and storage space also which gives the new buyer plenty of options for conversion or just further storage to the house. The property also benefits from newly laid tarmac and hard standings, providing ample space for gatherings and outdoor activities. Rose Cottage is not just a home; it is a piece of history reimagined for modern living, offering a unique blend of privacy, luxury, and natural beauty. This magnificent property awaits those who seek a lifestyle embraced by nature, history, and tranquillity. Viewing: Strictly by appointment with Savills. Eircode: The Eircode is F12 DE92 .
