A little piece of paradise. Beautifully presented 3 bedroom traditional style cottage with southerly aspect, superb location with rural views and yet within easy walking distance of the famous Spa town of Lisdoonvarna. The cottage has a new bathroom fitted to a very high standard and is in very good condition throughout having recently been re-decorated and repainted inside and outside. This lovely period cottage in the far west of Ireland not far from the Wild Atlantic Way is in turn-key condition ready for immediate occupancy. It stands on a large elevated site of c. 1½ acres with a mixture of mature hedging and shrubs and a small woodland and acre field at the back.
The cottage has the advantage both of oil-fired central heating with radiators in every room and a recently installed multifuel stove in the living room. All white goods are included – fridge, freezer, washing machine, drier, dishwasher, combination cooker with gas hob and electric oven. The cottage could be sold unfurnished or ‘as is’, fully furnished as a holiday retreat, and is in turn-key condition. It benefits from a sunny south-facing front elevation with beautiful views over the Gowlaun river valley to the distant hills, farmland and woods beyond. To the rear is a log store, currently full of logs, also a fully enclosed backyard and an area of grass or pasture, behind which is the small woodland and path to the acre field. A ‘must see’ as this property will not stay on the market for long! All enquiries and viewings welcome, by appointment with the owners.
