A hidden oasis just a short drive from Dublin city, this gorgeous cottage is a haven of peace and tranquillity.
Surrounded by leafy trees and with nature on its doorstep, Killogh Cottage can be found nestled away in Kilmacanogue, Co Wicklow.
Hidden away behind electric gates for added security, a gravel drive leads to the front of the property which has a cheerful blue door to greet you.
Inside, the property doesn’t disappoint and is bright and spacious thanks to an extensive refurbishment and extension completed in 2002. The front door opens onto a generous entrance hallway with solid oak floor, recessed lighting and a large Velux window.
Double doors lead through to the living room, with a separate door into the guest bathroom. The living room has double glass panelled doors that open out to the side patio garden. Solid oak flooring continues into this room which also features a wood-burning stove with oak mantle.
A large bay window brings light to the bespoke kitchen/dining/family room, which has ample storage courtesy of several fitted cupboards and units along with a butcher block work surface. A Belfast sink, centre island, integrated Belling electric oven, Stanley dual burner/cooker, integrated Miele dishwasher, and an American style Hotpoint fridge/freezer can also be found here.
The property also has four very fine bedrooms – two of which are en-suite. The main bathroom has a comfortable Jacuzzi bath with telephone shower over, as well as a separate AquaStream shower and heated towel radiator. Three other rooms have been laid out as home offices though there is huge potential to convert them into bedrooms or designated family areas.
Outside, the sundrenched gardens have been landscaped to perfection with patio areas extending to just under one acre. A scenic path, which winds through borders of mature flowers, shrubs, trees and extensive lawns, marks the way to a secret hidden garden and the wooded banks of the Killough River.
The property incorporates a Barna shed, several ancillary buildings, storage sheds, and a large vegetable garden with raised beds – well-suited to those with a penchant for gardening.
Positioned less than 2km from the N11 dual carriageway and only a short commute to Dublin city centre, the M50 and Dublin Airport, the property is in prime location and yet still feels secluded enough to give the illusion of being deep in the Irish countryside.
Local amenities in the immediate area include Avoca Handweavers, Powerscourt House and Gardens, Powerscourt Waterfall, the Sugarloaf Mountain and The Wicklow Way with walking and horse riding in nearby Djouce Woods too. There is also an abundance of facilities ranging from shops/boutiques, restaurants, pubs, golf clubs and a wide range of excellent schools all within easy reach in Enniskerry, Bray, Delgany and Greystones.
