We are delighted to present you with a unique opportunity to purchase this beautiful cottage on the magical island of Inishbofin, 'Island of the White Cow'.
Built to high specifications, no expenses were spared in the design and finishing of this modern, yet traditional Irish cottage: from wooden floors and ceilings to attic presses in upstairs bedrooms, to expensive tiling; and featuring a lovely wooden staircase and traditional fireplace.
The location is ideal - right beside the Dolphin Hotel and island hostel, 12 mins walk to the harbour & Days, 10 mins to the East End beaches, 15 mins to Doonmore Hotel on the upper road.
A willow garden has been planted for your future fire-logs (eco carbon-footprint-free!). The land rises up behind the house & from this vantage point you can watch the sun set over the harbour, surrounding islands and Atlantic ocean. Ideal place for a hot-tub!
Accommodation is offered as follows:
Entrance porch, large lounge/sitting room, bar to separate kitchen, dining area, hallway to 3 bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor, staircase to 2 more spacious bedrooms, a bathroom and a large landing in the dormer section. Both bathroom have instant showers. 2 front patios with posts supporting yacht-rope. Double sliding doors to rear of house with more parking area and access to the hill-climb. The entrance driveway is flanked by bio-mass willow. The front hedge is wild fuchsia.
The property has been designed to offer the possibility of a separate rental income from a 2-bedroom apartment on the ground floor. There is an entrance on the gable into a small kitchen/ living area (i.e. bedroom 3). There are separate meters already established and a simple lever also allows the OFCH to be separated. An internal door divides this apartment area from the rest of the house. Electricity and water are mains, and there is a septic tank and the added advantage of a Bord na Mona Treatment Unit. Heating is OFCH, and also storage heaters in 'apartment'.
