New Quay Real Estate is excited to bring to the market this beautiful fully renovated three-bedroom cottage with original natural limestone facade and glazed extension set in a mature orchard and woodlands with river boundary just minutes drive from the famous scenic coastal village of Ballyvaughan.
The cottage is accessed by a laneway from the main road which meanders through undulating countryside in the most picturesque of settings. The original build was a credit to the craftsmen of the day with the flawless stonework fitting so well into its lush green surroundings. When entering the property, a solid wood half door gives way to an inviting fully glazed porch with glazed roof panels flooding the space with light and capitalising on the spectacular views of the garden, the natural landscape and the Burren mountains behind. From here another half door gives access to a welcoming sitting room the focal point of which is a striking traditional limestone fireplace with arch and keystone lintel capped with a large span solid wood hand carved mantel. A solid fuel stove has been incorporated which adds to the cosy feel of this wonderful space. The stairs and mezzanine overhead fit in very nicely and given the configuration allows additional vaulted ceiling height with skylight to the sitting room which adds to the feeling of space and light. What was the original rear wall of the cottage is now an internal dividing wall and the current occupier has kept and exposed the original stonework which adds so much character to the living space and to the 400 sq ft extension. The kitchen comes with multiple storage options, a Belfast sink and hatch access to the sitting room which really connects the zones and adds to the character of the home. This in turn connects to the large living room with separate dining area drenched in natural light with three large triple windows along with French doors looking out onto the private patio and back garden. Just off the living room is the utility and the fully tiled family bathroom with south facing window and skylight. A bespoke marble bowl sink and black glass mosaic tiling create a very tasteful décor. Also included is an electric shower, full height towel radiator, oil radiator and additional storage along with decent circulation space.
The first of the three bedrooms is a generous double filled with natural light from both south and east facing windows, so great for that morning sun and all-day brightness. The room has a vintage cast iron fireplace, solid wood flooring and finished in neutral colours with a feature colour headboard wall. The second bedroom also on the ground floor comprises a single with solid wood floors, east facing window and again finished in neutral colour scheme. The third bedroom, a double on the first floor, has a south facing window, home study area, integrated shelving and carpeted flooring. The first-floor mezzanine is currently in use as an office space but has the scope to be converted into a fourth bedroom if so required.
The grounds of the cottage are very appealing at any time of the year with an orchard, open lawned areas, decking, woodland tracks, natural nooks and crannies, and secluded corners. A gorgeous river runs at the north boundary with very interesting rock formations that have been shaped by the waters flow over centuries.
Planning application was sought and approved for the construction of a dwelling house on the north west section of the property. While the time period has now lapsed the services were put in place for such a build which include water, electric and sewerage and offer prospective buyers the opportunity to carry on with these works SPP without these additional costs.
There are also two additional plots of land with this sale which offer a multitude of possibilities for additional residential buildings SPP, agricultural business opportunities or retreat/recreational activities to name but a few. Natural woodland on two of the three sites comprises a host of tree species in various stages of maturity with the main cottage garden producing apples, fruits and berries throughout the season. The eastern site of approximately 1.5 acres has both boundaries adjacent to the cottage at the end of the laneway and to the main road and has tremendous scope for development as a result. The woodland site at the main entrance may also have future development potential for residential purposes SPP. Note all three folios are included in the sale: CE23092, CE27932F & CE60542F
