DescriptionSet upon 1 acre of land and nestled away from the popular Terrysland Road behind a giant weeping willow tree, the beautiful Old Coach House has been occupying this area for over 250 years. Built in 1750 the original plot consisted of The Coach House, an animal shelter, The Farmhouse and a number of out buildings. Now having been totally revamped by its current owners over a 14 year period, this magnificent part of Carrigtwohill history is ready for its new chapter.
When the current owners bought this plot there was work required to say the least. An animal shelter which was barely visible through the weeds that covered it and a 255 year old house that needed some ‘’upgrades’’. Today you have 3 wonderful homes which are all unique in their own way.
The Farmhouse still has its original features showing where possible although modern insulation and a new ensuite have made this 2 bedroom bolthole with studio office a magical place to reside.
The Coach House is a delightful 3 bed living quarters with features such as a floating bath in the main bathroom, Ceramic curved bar with tiled ornate counter top, exposed beams, Belfast sinks as well as first floor with free standing feature fire that sits adoringly outside the master bedroom. It really is like something out of the South of France.
The second building hosts a further 2 bedrooms and has seen the biggest revamp. This spate dwelling could be used for holiday lets, older family members or just a guest house. It has 2 bedrooms, kitchen/dining, bathroom, utility and living area.
The current owners ensured they used only the best trades and materials when working on this project. Being an able DIY enthusiast helped throughout the years as visible by the number of restored pieces in the outbuildings and work sheds but that is no longer essential due to the hard work put in over the past 14 years. Now you have 3 comfortable homes privately tucked away in one of the most sought after areas in Carrigtwohill.
Ideal for someone who is interested in an income via B&B/ Air BNB or perhaps have older kids, caring for parents, there is space for all here. Then again perhaps you are just like the current owners and are looking for a place to enjoy the peace and quiet. Whatever the reason this Coach House is ready to roll out the old carriage to make way for a new one.
