Introducing a truly enchanting property that seamlessly blends the warmth of a traditional cottage with the creative allure of a purpose-built art studio and tearoom themed as a Scottish hunting lodge. Nestled in a tranquil and picturesque setting, just off a quiet country lane, this remarkable residence offers a unique opportunity for artists, creatives, and those seeking a serene retreat to call home. With its timeless charm, and versatile spaces, this property is sure to captivate the hearts of those seeking inspiration and tranquillity in a truly stunning coastal setting. Perched on a mature, south-facing site that extends to nearly one acre in area, the property commands partial views towards Teelin Estuary with the majestic Slieve League Mountain range sitting in the backdrop. Slieve League is home to some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe, offering a truly unforgettable experience for nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers. A destination that will take your breath away with its awe-inspiring natural beauty and magnificent landscapes, Rich in history, the cottage dates back to the 18th century and originally consisted of a conventional three-roomed cottage that was later extended to the rear to include a kitchen come diner plus an extra bedroom and bathroom whilst remaining many of the original characteristics and features found in a property of this era. In 1987, the previous owners with great attention to detail and no expense spared constructed a purpose-built open-plan tearoom and art studio, seamlessly connecting it to the eastern gable of the cottage. Today, this remarkable extension boasts an impressive area spanning 2,485 sq.ft. It has been thoughtfully reimagined as an expansive open-plan sitting room come grand dining room, stretching across the entire length of the ground floor. The sheer size and layout of this space offer endless possibilities for comfortable living and elegant entertaining. Ascending to the upper level, you'll discover the art studio, a haven of creativity designed to inspire and nurture artistic pursuits. Bathed in natural light pouring through triple-aspect skylights, this dedicated space provides an ideal environment for artists to delve into their craft. A corridor with built-in storage leads you to a large master bedroom with direct access onto a raised private balcony overlooking the picturesque gardens. This serene sanctuary offers a peaceful escape, inviting you to unwind and bask in the beauty of the surroundings. Connected to the bedroom is a full en-suite bathroom. With a generous internal living space extending to approximately 3,385 sq.ft (314 sq.m), this property offers a substantial canvas for comfortable living. Currently featuring three bedrooms, the layout can be easily reconfigured to accommodate two bedrooms, providing flexibility to suit your specific needs. While the cottage itself requires modernisation and upgrading to its former glory, the two-storey extension is in relatively good condition and primarily requires cosmetic upgrades and updating.
