Sweetpea Cottage: Inside this dotey country home on the market for €289,000
Traditional yet contemporary all at once, this beautiful cottage is the perfect amalgamation of old and new.
Tucked away in Lismacrory near Roscrea in Co Tipperary, Sweetpea Cottage is a wonderfully quaint building with plenty of charm and character. Over the years, the property has been lovingly and tastefully restored to modernise it, transforming it into a bright and spacious home that still maintains all of its original charm and character.
Out front, ivy climbs the front of the building; the dark maroon perfectly complementing the pastel-coloured front door. A gravel driveway leads up to the property, which has ample off-road parking to accommodate several cars.
Enter inside and the stable-style front door opens onto a large open-plan living room with high ceilings and wooden floors. A solid fuel stove with feature fire brings warmth to the room. Two brown leather couches sit to the other side of the room, while a dining table and chairs can be found just behind. Glass French doors connect this room with the garden outside.
Upstairs, a carpeted mezzanine has been converted into a guest bedroom.
Further inside, you’ll find the kitchen. Seamlessly blending old with new, standout features include a warm wooden countertop, tiled splashback and modern appliances. Rear and side aspect windows allow natural light to flood the area by day.
Both bedrooms are large rooms with double beds, front aspect windows and wooden flooring.
Outside, a large detached garage stands to the side of the property. This space has also been fitted with a power connection with lighting and sockets. The garden is another standout selling point of the property, which features beautiful flowers, an organic vegetable plot, a chicken run, a glass house and a soft water tank to collect rainwater.
A separate home office is located at the bottom of the garden. Made almost entirely out of wood, this area is a cosy escape from the main building with a solid fuel stove for extra warmth. Sliding doors lead to a deck area overlooking the garden, while a children’s playhouse – currently an outdoor washroom with a bathroom – neighbours this space.
Viewing of this property, which is on sale through Sherry FitzGerald Madden, is highly recommended and can be arranged through the selling agents. In the meantime, you can take a look inside Sweetpea Cottage in our gallery below.
