Originally built in 1887, this Mayo cottage has been lovingly repurposed into the breathtaking retreat that it is today. The attention to detail of the current owners is immediately apparent when one notices the old school bell re-fashioned as the doorbell.

Once inside you are greeted by a stunning solid wood kitchen which the owners have hand-crafted from church pews and finished with an iconic Belfast sink. The original floor tiles and school coat hangers complete the room and set the ambience for the entire home.

One of the original classrooms now hosts a wonderful living room and dining area with high ceilings and characteristic large windows of a school house of the era. The original floor boards have been reclaimed and are a truly stunning feature which runs throughout the cottage. The living room is completed by a solid fuel stove with a back boiler.

Both bedrooms enjoy oceans of daylight. The guest room has built-in wardrobes while the master bedroom is extremely generous and boasts a solid fuel stove and spacious en-suite. The family bathroom has a very fresh and vibrant palette and comprises w/c, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and a full-sized bath with electric shower unit.

Outside, the grounds are immaculately manicured with a host of lawns, shrubberies, raised patio areas and stone outbuildings, all of which have received the same loving care and attention from the owners to create this idyllic property. The stone buildings house a tool shed and fuel shed to compliment the large detached garage while ample parking is provided on the tarmacadam drive.
