This delightful south-facing stone cottage with fish scale slate roof is a rare find. It boasts a fabulous location, next to the village fishing lake in a hamlet of two properties, surrounded by countryside. The cottage is well presented, providing character from its exposed stone walls and timbers. With countryside walks on the doorstep and the village only a short stroll around the lake, and a thriving market town only 6km away, the property offers a perfect location for either a permanent residence or holiday home.
The cottage is accessed via a small lane from the village. The cottage itself is semidetached with a stone barn owned by a farmer who uses it for storage and who keeps his sheep in the orchard opposite. The gated entrance to the cottage is opposite the barn and the enclosed garden provides privacy with far-reaching views over the local countryside. The driveway offers ample parking.
The cottage is accessed by the front door giving onto the living room (23m²) with tiled floor, exposed stone walls and timbers providing much character. The living room offers an entrance door and window to the front, a fireplace with insert stove, a dining area, tiled floor and the solid wood staircase leading to the first floor. The living room also gives onto the kitchen (11m²) with painted stone walls and entrance door to the rear. The kitchen offers floor and wall cupboards, a sink and utility area. The utility area offers onto the wet room (5.5m²) with tiled floor, large shower area, wash hand basin, WC and Velux roof window. This completes the ground floor accommodation.
The stairs lead onto the carpeted landing (3m²) with exposed timbers, and gives onto both bedrooms. Bedroom 1 (20m²) is built into the eaves and boasts a south-facing dormer window and Velux roof window. This spacious room provides many exposed timbers. Three steps lead from the landing down into bedroom 2 (13m²) which is again built into the eaves and offers a Velux roof window to both sides. This completes the accommodation.
The property also offers an attached stone shed with steel roof, which is accessed from the driveway. The ground floor (15m²) offers an earth floor and steep steps lead up to the first floor (15m²). This is built into the eaves and offers wooden flooring. The shed offers a large, dry storage area, with the possibility for conversion to accommodation subject to planning consent.
Large granite steps, lead up to the garden which is mainly lawn, with many mature fruit and nut trees also found. The steps are all that remains of an old castle that used to be built in the vicinity. Both houses in the hamlet were built from the stones of the old castle.
The property offers exceedingly low yearly taxes amounting to under 150 euros, thereby keeping running costs to a minimum.
