DescriptionO'Donnellan & Joyce are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful one bedroom thatched cottage located in Pollacullaire, Headford, Co. Galway. This magnificent property "Quarry Cottage" is built on a spectacular site which was once the home to the stone that built the church in Headford.
This c.200 year old stone cottage has been modernised and maintained throughout with a recently refurbished thatch roof, solid wood kitchen, locally sourced marble flooring, teak sash windows and underfloor heating. The main cottage boasts style and character throughout. A small amount of upgrade works would turn this property into a wonderful home. Previous planning permission for a 2,200 sq.ft. extension was granted but has since expired. This modern and architecturally designed extension to the rear would truly transform this already beautiful home into a state of the art family residence with all the modern day conveniences that are required for modern day living.
Also located on the site which is surrounded with beautifully crafted dry stone walls, is a block built mews which contains a kitchenette, main bathroom, storage cupboard and living space. This part of the property has large double glazed windows overlooking the front garden as well as a solid fuel stove and ample space. A stone storage shed is also situated on the site and could provide a second block of living accommodation if renovated subject to planning.
The site is fully serviced with mains water and electricity and has its own septic tank system with basic infrastructure in place for a full water treatment system and draining pit. While the home is immediately habitable, some upgrade works would benefit the property. The mews is presented in usable condition but would benefit from a fully finished interior and ancillary works. Viewing of this highly desirable property is recommended and guaranteed not to disappoint.
