The Forge, Castleconnell, is an exceptional old-world dormer cottage - renovated by its current owners to provide well-appointed, traditional living space at the heart of Castleconnell Village. While the existing dimensions of the home provide ample accommodation, The Forge sits on an incredible site which would easily allow for an ambitious architectural expansion (subject to p.p.). This property offers a rare opportunity to create a dream home at the centre of an idyllic rural village.
The village of Castleconnell benefits from easy access to all major road networks, and is located just 13 km outside Limerick City. The charming town centre offers an excellent range of shops, restaurants and traditional pubs, in addition to beautiful riverside walks, playgrounds and schools.
The Forge is comprised of a dormer cottage set adjacent to a stone built garage/workshop (formerly the forge itself). Entering through the original entrance, you are welcomed into the main living room, complete with an imposing feature gas fireplace at its heart. The current owners have extensively refitted and refurbished the property, to include solid wood floors and a white oak staircase to the first floor. The kitchen is laid with tiled flooring and complete with fitted solid wood units, including an integrated Hotpoint oven/hob and dishwasher.
To the rear of the property there is an excellent sunroom, which offers a vantage point over the sprawling, totally private rear garden. The Forge is accessible from the front and rear, and has been completely rewired in recent years to provide an ideal workshop or secure garage. Those with a creative streak will consider marrying the exposed stone shell of the forge to the cottage itself, which coupled with an extension to the rear would double the footprint of the existing house (subject to p.p).
On the first floor there is a generous main bathroom with full bath and shower facilities, along with two dormer bedrooms (each with excellent inbuilt storage space). On the ground floor there is a third bedroom and/or family room, depending on your requirements.
