Description(Reference number: 54354)
The Cow House, a converted luxury farmhouse, set in the rolling Hills of Wicklow has won several accolades for its contemporary design.
Restored from an old 19th century farm building, the two-storey luxury rental home, has been transformed into a unique hideaway.
Overlooking a quaint courtyard, the newly fashioned cow house is surrounded by renowned gardens, created by Julie Blake, and celebrated as one of the best in Ireland.
Inside, the open-plan living room features an open structure of exposed timber beams and rafters, with a raised kitchen at one end. The floor is a heated polished concrete floor cast from local sand and granite.
The distinctive modern theme is emphasised with the focal point of a timber wrapped island, in the kitchen, which conceals the washing machine and dishwasher.
The success of the airy, bright open-plan ground floor is achieved with glass sliding doors opening onto the farmyard.
Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms built as boxes set on stilts on a mezzanine level, with glass-walled shower rooms sandwiched between both bedrooms.
Glass walls let you look down to the floor below.
Winner of the 'BEST HOUSE' 2014 at the Architecture Ireland Awards- RIAI, The Cow House is an outstanding property both in terms of its distinctive architecture but also for its celebrated gardens.
Located approx. 5 km from Russborough House and Blessington with its renowned lakes, and a 30 minute drive from Dublin city centre, the house is the ideal location for exploring County Wicklow and all that this scenic area has to offer.
