Hidden behind a border of mature trees, this property is enveloped by nature.

Surrounded by green fields and lush forestry, the beautiful Pond Cottage and Lake House in  Funshog Collon, Co. Louth enjoy their own peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

Spanning a total of 9 acres, the estate comprises a fully renovated one-bedroom stone cottage and a luxurious three-bedroom residence.

The main residence has undergone extensive renovations in recent years. A grand entrance porch opens onto a spacious hallway. To the left, is the family room where you’ll find a luxurious marble fireplace and sweeping vistas of the lake. Adjacent to this room is a stunning Victorian-style glass conservatory, strategically positioned to make the most of the sunset.

Further inside is the open-plan kitchen/living/dining area. A statement window, 4.3 metres high and 6.2 metres wide sits against the back wall, overlooking the garden and allowing natural light to flood the space. This expansive area is tailor-made for hosting gatherings, further enhanced by a supplementary kitchen/utility room complete with a convenient WC.

The opposite wing of the house accommodates three elegantly furnished bedrooms – two sharing access to the main family bathroom while the master suite comes with the added luxury of an en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. This area also includes a loft space for storage, underfloor heating with zoning capabilities and double-glazed windows amongst other features.

A traditional stone-front cottage can be found nestled elsewhere on the property. Fitted with double-glazed sash windows, the building is open-plan in its design and boasts a harmonious blend of modern comfort and rustic charm. Highlights include solid wood flooring, a classic Belfast sink, and lofty pitched ceilings along with a cosy wood-burning stove, perfect for colder evenings. 

A detached garage provides ample space for storage or conversion, while additional paddocks offer further possibilities for enjoyment or possible development.

There are five vehicular and pedestrian access points on the property offering great connectivity with local transport routes. The property is also just 30 minutes from Dublin Airport. The front entrance welcomes you with separate access points for the main house and the cottage, with electric gates, ample parking, and a carport attached to the main residence.

Situated amidst magical grounds where nature abounds, the grounds include access to a private 4-acre lake – visible from the main residence.

Currently on the market for €1,250,000, the property is on sale through Lisney Sotheby’s. Take a tour of the wonderfully peaceful Pond Cottage and Lake House in our gallery below.
