Coming to market for the first time in nearly 30 years, the property is located in a very peaceful part of the country with panoramic views across Bruckless Bay.

Sitting pretty on the edge of a beautiful private lake, Bridge Cottage in Co Donegal is the epitome of a quiet, country escape. Surrounded by nature on all sides, the property comprises a traditional stone cottage – once a former railway workers’ home – and a new block-built extension to the rear.

The welcoming and cosy accommodation extends to a sizable 970 sq.ft and consists of two reception rooms, a kitchen-cum-dining room together with four bedrooms. A neat stone wall marks the entrance to the property, with a short gravel drive leading up to the red front door.

A cosy, tiled entranceway lies at the heart of the property, connecting all of the different rooms. The open plan kitchen/dining room is a large room with plenty of seating. A cosy range sits against one wall, while various appliances can be found dotted along the countertops.

Carpet lines the floor in one of the reception rooms, which also features a range and fireplace amongst other things. Warm lighting, patterned rugs and deep red couches bring colour to the room. Shelving has been fitted either side of the fireplace for extra storage space.

Tucked away in Bruckless, the property spans approximately 0.66 acres of land. Bruckless Bay can be reached within just a few short strides – the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer day. The carefully manicured gardens wrap around the cottage and are subdivided by the old Killybegs to Donegal Town railway line.

The gardens also extend out to a triple-arched, Victorian-era bridge, which gives direct pedestrian access to Bruckless House, an attractive 18th-century period home set on 18 acres of mature gardens.

Take a peek inside the beautiful Bridge Cottage, which is on sale through DNG Dorrian, in our gallery below.
