Description

This beautiful modern, architect designed cottage is hidden away on a small side road about two miles from Whitegate village in East Clare. Standing on a woodland site measuring 1.3 acres it was built to a meticulously high standard using only Ecofriendly, sustainably produced materials and is in excellent condition with all the modern conveniences. Finished in 2008, the cottage is connected to mains electricity, a private bored well on site, a septic tank onsite and has an excellent high-speed broadband system. All windows are made from certified sustainably grown larch and contain Argon filled double glazed units. The windows were imported from Germany. The front door is made from sustainably produced Oroco hardwood and was made locally. Heating is provided from a wood stove and a gas on demand water heater is installed. The cottage is beautifully but simply designed with an entrance porch leading to a large central living space with impressive vaulted ceilings made from West Cork Larch. On one side of the living space is a ground floor bedroom and on the other side is the kitchen area. There are overhead rooms on either side of the living room each being accessed via Dutch staircase. One is used as a bedroom and the other as a study but this could be used as a third bedroom if required. The bathroom is off the entrance porch. The entire house is flooded with natural light and the large windows generate a lot of passive energy. ROOM DIMENSIONS Entrance Porch 2.3m x 5.0m Larch floor Bathroom 1.8m x 2.7m Tiled floor, Bath with overhead shower Living Room 4.6m x 5.0m Larch floor, Feature solid fuel stove, Patio door, Vaulted ceiling Kitchen 2.0m x 3.1m No fitted units, Gas hob, Electric oven, Fridge not included Ground floor Bedroom 2.7m x 4.6m Larch floor First floor Bedroom 3.4m x 3.4m Mezzanine level Study 3.4m x 3.4m Mezzanine level The overall specifications are too detailed to go into here but suffice to say that this is an airtight house built from Poroton clay blocks, insulated with Eco-friendly cellulose insulation and rendered with a clay straw mix for added U values. BER is C1. The house is roofed with natural slate but there is a green roof on the porch area. The window sills are made from locally sourced limestone. The garden, however is what sets this house apart. Not a manicured lawn but rather a wild garden filled with bio-diverse plants and animals. Most of the outside space is made up of mature native hardwood trees and there is a little stream that flows through during wet weather. An absolute wonderland for children with trees to climb and lots of exploring to be done. In one corner the current owner has built a wooden garden room that would be a wonderful play house, an outdoor barbeque area or just an additional storage space. There is plenty of wildlife here and it will not be unusual to see fallow deer grazing, foxes prowling or red squirrels and pine martens scampering through. So, if you are on the lookout for a comfortable modern, sustainable home in a natural unspoilt setting yet with all the mod cons, this ticks all the boxes. Oh, and by the way, the bus to the local Steiner school stops at the end of the road! For any queries you have or to arrange a viewing phone Noel Hogan 087 2651377.
