Charming period granite cut stone cottage standing on a beautiful site of c. 1.11 acre / 0.45Ha. The property is often visited by an array of wildlife from Deer with their fawns, squirrels, and rabbits and not to mention the butterflies that gather on the foliage outside the house. This is a truly unique property with an abundance of charm and character. The thick walls, the wood burning stove, the slate floors and whitewashed walls, all combine to make this a cosy, comfortable cottage to make home. Outside the raised area to the back of the cottage acts as another room in the warmer months and the views from this are stunning, with Lugnaquilla mountain in the background. The gardens are divided into areas with a secret garden, a vegetable patch with raised beds and large Poly tunnel which produces a mound of fruit and vegetables all year round, not to mention the lawn area to the rear which is a magnet for the wild Deer that stroll in and out of the garden in the hope of some food.
This cottage is a gem of a property that must be seen to be appreciated. Early viewing is advised.
