DescriptionInk Bottle Cottage is a charming four bedroomed detached cottage sitting proud on a wonderful site, extending to circa 0.84 Acre / 0.34 Hectare of mature gardens. This wonderful home is set in the heart of some of Ireland's best countryside with breath taking views of Slievenamon mountain.
The original cottage was built pre 1900 and was extended in 2001 and extended further in 2010. The current owners purchased the property in 2009 and have made further improvements and changes, making it a turnkey lifetime home.
The substantial generously proportioned light filled accommodation extends to 1,970 Sq. Ft. / 183 Sq. M. approx. over two levels. The layout at ground floor level comprises: porch/entrance hall, dining room with a spiral staircase to the first floor, living room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room/back hall and three good sized bedrooms (main with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe). A family bathroom completes the accommodation at this level. The layout at first floor level comprises: landing area and a very fine double bedroom suite complete with en-suite and a walk-in wardrobe. French doors open out to a sun drenched wrought-iron balcony with stunning views of the garden.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS:
Ink Bottle Cottage is approached through a cut stone vehicular entrance with aluminum composite gates and a pedestrian gate. A sweeping gravelled driveway with decorative street lanterns is bordered by manicured lawns with an extensive range of mature plants trees and hedging. There is parking to the front of the property for several cars. A private sun drenched private patio area to the left of the property is perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. A wooden farm gate gives access into a paddock area surrounded by post and rail fencing. A block built shed and a wooden garden shed are located in the corner of the paddock accessed by a hardcore driveway. The rear garden is partly laid in lawn with a large paved area bordered by Laurel hedging.
The property is located in the townland of Attateenoe which is just a five minute drive from the market town of Callan (take the R692 sign posted for Fethard and Mullinahone).
