Description

Sherry FitzGerald O'Reilly are delighted to introduce you to a most wonderful property, The Cottage, Ballinatona, Manor Kilbride. This is a stone cottage of exceptional character, set in a peaceful and idyllic location in the Wicklow countryside. It was built around 1850 and has been sympathetically extended by its current owners. There is a feeling of great authenticity in this home, with salvaged materials used in the extension and antique fixtures and fittings introduced from the cottage's original era. The Cottage sits on 0.5 acres approximately of stunning gardens. These gardens were landscaped as a final year project for students of the National Botanic gardens. They are designed to provide colour and interest at all times of year. The closest village is Manor Kilbride, a picturesque country village, with shop, church and Primary school, while The Cottage is just 10km from the town of Blessington with major supermarkets, restaurants, bars, schools and leisure amenities such as sailing, kayaking and GAA. The N81 nearby gives easy access to the city centre, and the Luas at Citywest is 25 minutes away This is a truly beautiful property in a tranquil and picturesque location making it the ideal residence to get away from city life yet convenient enough to commute. Accommodation briefly comprises entrance porch, sitting room, hallway, kitchen/dining room, conservatory, 3 bedrooms (one en-suite) and bathroom.

Accommodation

Porch 1.46m x 1.43m. With stone tiled floor. Living Room 8.4m x 3.63m. This is a glorious room, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. It is full of light, with three roof windows overhead, a small concession to modernity. It boasts a stone floor, and a salvage granite framed fireplace with a woodburning stove. The stove is backed by an Elizabethan cast iron fireback and includes a Victorian cast iron hearth fender. The loft area (3.63m x 1.7m) with ladder stair access currently houses a futon to create an occasional overnight accommodation space. Alternatively, the loft offers useful storage space. Hallway 1.46m x 0.8m. With oak floor and electric immersion heater press off with storage press above. Kitchen/Dining Area 6.42m x 3.3m. The kitchen is fitted with a selection of bespoke painted in-frame cabinets with oak worktop and added details such as the plate racks, two Belfast sinks and display presses. The floor is graced with Luke stone flags, a rare stone from Co. Clare, while the vaulted ceiling is panelled in pine with exposed beams and roof windows. A neat vintage Norwegian Trolla wood burning stove warms the room. Included are an electric cooker with ceramic hob and fridge. Conservatory 10.55m x 3.52m. This was created in 1999, linking the cottage to what was external accommodation. It is a substantial space, with a wall of window to rear to best appreciate the magnificent gardens.

Doors open up to the garden at the rear and there is a door with intricate Victorian grille panels inset, which leads to the front garden and the gravel drive. Bedroom 1 4.56m x 3.67m.

There are two wooden sheds (2.4m x 3.6m) and (2.2m x 1.3m) at the rear of the property. Gardens There is a beautiful cottage garden to front, with an arch of climbing roses and beds filled with shrubs and flowering perennials such as various geraniums and alpine columbine. The colours of the plants contrast beautifully with the austerity of the granite stone walls. Steps up to the side of the house take you on meandering gravel paths through a breath-taking multi-layered garden which was designed as a final year project by students of the National Botanic gardens of Ireland. The garden is packed with mature trees - beech, willow, corkscrew hazel to name a few. The rear garden is packed with shrubs - rhododendrons of many hues, azaleas, barberry and holly. There are many different areas of the garden to enjoy. A canopy of mixed trees shelters ferns and other shade loving plants, a lawn offers a seating area from which to enjoy the garden, a lily pond sits by the back door and a vegetable garden to rear has a stream running by. The boundary stone walls are topped with geraniums, and wisteria, honeysuckle and clematis climb along the cottage walls. This is truly a glorious garden. Viewing is a must.
