This property is a good example of a restored, traditional stonebuilt cottage, which embraces many of the original features. These include a wide fireplace, and the original two sets of steep stairs which access the three attic style bedrooms. Downstairs comprises of a living room and sitting dining room, bathroom and galley kitchen. The modest conservatory to the rear faces south, which the incumbent grape vine seems to enjoy. The cottage is at the highest point of a sloping, approx one acre site. Behind the house is a path to the main outbuildings which nestle into the hillside below the house. Below that is a poly tunnel, and then the remainder of the land stretches out, more on one level. This land has been left to nature in recent years. The property is set on a quiet rural road, but it is not isolated, with neighbours on either side. The mature gardens near the house ensure a high level of privacy. The coast at Doughmore Beach is only circa 10 minutes drive away.
