A charming, partly-restored period cottage in Ardglasson, this property combines traditional with modern features to create a truly unique home.

Dating back to 1816, Primrose Cottage is a well-maintained time capsule of old Ireland. Small but cosy, it would make for an ideal weekend retreat or a permanent downsizer for those in pursuit of a slower pace of life. 

The accommodation comprises a small entrance hall, a living-cum-dining room, a utility room with w.c and a bedroom. As of now, the cottage does not have its own kitchen facilities so new owners would need to be willing to make a considerable investment in modernising the property to ensure it is livable long term. 

Inside, most of the walls, ceilings and floor have been painted white – giving the illusion of space and allowing the room to reflect light, making it appear bright and airy. Wooden beams divide the living/dining room into two rooms without closing the space off. A small stove sits against one wall bringing warmth to the space. 

The bedroom is located just off this room. A feature stone wall and a large open fireplace are the main focus of this room. Furniture is minimal here, giving new owners the opportunity to put their own spin on things. 

Set on an elevated plot of land adjacent to the Hamlet of Ardglasson, the property enjoys a south-facing aspect, taking full advantage of natural daylight hours. A small garden with plenty of potential can be found to the rear of the property. The property is also privy to stunning views of the surrounding countryside. 

There is vehicular access to the side of the property with space for parking both in front of and to the rear of the building. 

All essential services are connected, however, the cottage only has a G Building Energy Rating meaning that significant work will need to be done to bring it up to standard and make the building more energy efficient. 

Close to all necessary amenities, the property is conveniently located just 11km from Kells, and is well-connected with the M3, the M50 and Crossakiel Village within a short distance away.

Currently on the market for €125,000, viewing is by appointment only and can be arranged with Gerard Farrelly McPeake Auctioneers. Interested parties should note that only cash offers will be considered at this time.
