Ox Mountains, West Sligo, Sligo

3 beds Cottage Energy Rating



This is truly a unique property -7 acres situated in the middle of a valley of woodland in the Ox Mountains. Total privacy and seclusion yet only 40 minutes via back roads to the nearest airport.

Set well away from a quiet road you hardly ever hear anything apart from nature.

The current vendors have been living here for 25 years and have created a wonderful open space and home ready for new owners to cherish and improve.

The house was carefully renovated to maximise light and minimise its carbon footprint whilst the land has been managed to open up the area closest to the dwelling place with the remaining woodland and stream a wonderful wilderness and resource

The spacious and bright residence offers:
Open plan Kitchen/Dining room with large open fireplace and solid fuel stove, 3 Good Size bedrooms of which one with stove, bathroom and a bright living/study with glass front overlooking the demesne. Total Floor area approx.. 102.97m2
A stone outhouse close to the residence could be incorporated into further accommodation. There is also a small tractor/lawn mower shed on the grounds.

Set on the lee side of the most westerly mountains in Europe the area has a rich heritage. The adjacent parish has the highest density of megalithic sites in Ireland, the road at the end of the house track is probably the oldest road in the west of Ireland, whilst the land itself has been worked on by the renowned dowser Billy Gawn.

The area is well known for its beauty as it skirts the edge of the mountains. It is a popular cycle route for tourists riding between Sligo and Westport because of its lack of traffic and wonderful views, creating the potential for holiday rental .

If you want to live in a completely secluded and sheltered place, in a large clearing surrounded by woodland , in a beautiful light cottage orientated to catch the sun from dawn till dusk, yet only a short drive away from a school, a village, the coast and an international airport, then this could be the place for you.

In this day and age it is a rarity to come ...
