This characterful cottage in Co Offaly is on the market for €340,000

This characterful cottage in Co Offaly is on the market for €340,000

Perched on 1.2 acres of land, this characterful cottage in Co Offaly is bright, spacious and bursting with possibility. 

Beautifully extended by its current owners, this cosy country cottage has a stunning light-filled extension with plenty of standout features – including, but not limited to, a magnificent reception room, vaulted ceilings with beautiful oak beams, French Doors leading out to the garden and a stove which heats the underfloor heating system.

A handsome wooden door opens into the hallway. Slate flooring continues throughout the house, guiding the way from this room into the main body of the house. The open-plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen are all interconnected with a TV and couch to one side and a large wooden table and chairs to the other.

Several large windows allow natural light to flood this room by day and starlight by night. 

Warm wooden flooring lines both the floor and the ceiling in the kitchen, which has been painted a sunny shade of yellow. Other highlights include a forest green range cooker and a Belfast sink. A wooden press with open shelving sits against one wall, with another press against the adjacent wall. Further storage can be found in the utility – a small, narrow room located just off the kitchen. 

Tastefully renovated throughout, all of the attractive antique furnishings in both the kitchen and utility room are included in the sale. 

For those who love a long soak after a stressful day, the bathroom is sure to be their favourite room. There you’ll find a freestanding bath with a fireplace for extra relaxation points!

Elsewhere in the cottage, there is a mezzanine level over one of the reception rooms. Currently set up as another sleeping quarters, this room has plenty of potential for conversion and could be transformed into an office, home gym, or playroom depending on your needs. The Master Bedroom is particularly impressive with its high ceiling and walk-through dressing room that opens to an en-suite shower room. There are two other good-sized double bedrooms and a second reception room.

Outside, a gravel drive leads to the front door with a gated fence surrounding the perimeter of the property – giving extra ease of mind to parents with small children. Perched on 1.2 acres of land, the property also features its own detached garage – set up to be converted into a separate living unit subject to planning permission.  

The garden is exceptionally private, with plenty of greenery and trees to marvel at. A polytunnel, a large turf shed, three vegetable beds and a shipping container (currently set up as a workshop) complete the outdoor offering. 

Currently on the market for €340,000, viewing of this unique property comes highly recommended and you can arrange an appropriate time with Kate O’Shea Auctioneer and Valuer
