This picturesque cottage with views of the Galtee Mountains is on the market for €300,000
Lovingly restored over the years, Firtree Cottage in Co Limerick has the most beautiful outdoor area with uninterrupted views of the Galtee Mountains.
A gravel drive leads to the front of the house where you’ll find plenty of off-road parking (enough to accommodate three cars). A gorgeous covered porch area sits to one side – ideal for outdoor entertaining or summer barbeques as the weather improves.
Inside, the interiors are bright and modern, though still reflective of the property’s origins, maintaining all of its cosy, cottage charm.
Well-lit and surprisingly spacious, traditional stonework continues throughout the house with wood-panelled ceilings bringing warmth to each room. A staircase to the mezzanine floor can be found in the kitchen/dining room which has been fitted with a handsome solid wood floor. Quality cabinetry lines the walls, offering plenty of storage and counter space. A range master cooker can be found to one side, while a large table sits in the centre of the room.
The same brickwork and stone flooring continues in the living room, with exposed beams and a natural wooden staircase two other standout features. Elsewhere in the building, a small office can be found.
Each of the three bedrooms has been fitted with large wardrobes. Sliding doors connect one of the bedrooms with the outdoor balcony, which has gorgeous views of the surrounding area. The main bathroom has been fully tiled and features a bath and heated towel rail amongst other things.
Spanning one-third of an acre of lush green countryside, the property is privy to some of the most beautiful views around and looks out onto the Galtee Mountains across the valley.
Only a 40-minute drive from Limerick City, the house is also conveniently close to Cappamore Village which can be reached within 5-minutes. There you’ll find a number of different amenities including a recently renovated library and arts studios, a Garda station, a pharmacy, several pubs/restaurant/bars, church, daycare centres for the elderly, a fire station, two petrol stations, various shops, hardware stores and an active sports community, too.
