This charming thatched cottage is on the market for €375,000

Combining traditional features with modern refurbishments, this beautiful thatched cottage is the perfect balance of old and new. 

With its thatched roof, white paint and pastel trim, Bay Tree Cottage is the epitome of old-world charm. Inside,  the interior has been extensively renovated to bring it up to date, however, the property still retains all of its original character and would be the perfect base for those looking to ground themselves in nature. 

A gravel path leads to the front of the property, where you’ll find ample off-road parking. The front entrance – with a quirky half-door – opens onto a cosy tiled entrance porch, currently being used as a lovely seating area.  

Further along, you’ll find the kitchen area which has been fitted with an AGA cooker and a large Belfast sink. There is plenty of storage space with several built-in units and presses lining the walls, as well as a large breakfast bar with additional seating in the centre of the room. 

The dining room can be found off the kitchen with low ceilings and mezzanine, along with a small stove. This room leads to a larger sitting room where a feature stone fireplace and another solid fuel stove take pride of place. Pitch pine flooring has been fitted in this room.

The mezzanine area, accessed by pull-down stairs, is currently being used as a home office. 

The family bathroom has a fabulous freestanding bath, a sink inset into a marble top, and a large mains shower.

Wooden floors have been fitted in both of the bedrooms, which both have double beds and large windows to bring light to the room. 

Offering buyers unrivalled privacy, the property is hidden behind a border of lush green hedgerows and spans approximately 0.6 acres of beautifully tended gardens. Featuring a variety of different trees, plants and flowers, the place really comes alive in the springtime with its gorgeous rainbow of colours and scents. 

Situated in Bolaboy More in Co Wexford, the property is also conveniently close to Ballagh Village where you’ll find a number of amenities and facilities.
