This unique property featuring two one-bed cottages is on the market for €275,000
The property consists of two one-bed cottages, each approximately 60-65 sq.m. Sitting on 1.3 acres of land, it’s a generous site with plenty of greenery.
Charming and traditional from the outside, the décor of both cottages is much more modern than you might expect. Paint and clever storage hacks combine to make the space appear bigger, while colour and wooden floors bring warmth to the inside.
Built in the 1930s, the main cottage is a beautiful white-washed building with double glazed timber windows and a pitched slate roof. Internally, the property has been maintained with great care and attention over the years – which is evident throughout.
A stone fireplace with solid fuel stove takes centre stage in the living room, which also has a vaulted timber-panelled ceiling. Meanwhile, the same wooden flooring continues into the bedroom, which has plenty of storage courtesy of several large wardrobes.
This cottage features a vaulted timber-panelled ceiling with exposed timber beams and polished timber floors. Timber worktops line the surfaces of the kitchen cabinets where you’ll also spot a Belfast sink and feature hanging lights.
The second stone-front cottage is located just to the rear – also with painted double glazed timber windows and a slate roof. This property has been extensively refurbished over the years and features an open plan kitchen/dining room/living area with separate bedroom and shower room.
One half of the open plan living room/dining room is lined with polished timber flooring, while the other features the original stone flag floor. A wood-burning stove sits in the centre of the room – a welcome addition on colder nights.
The bedroom can be found off this room. Lined with plush carpet, a baby pink door leads to outside to the front garden. The shower room features a fully tiled floor and power shower with spot lighting and rendered walls.
Located just under 10 km (8.7km to be precise) northeast of Newport, the property is far removed from city life. Surrounded by rich agricultural farmland, it’s also well set up for fishermen thanks to the renowned Fresh Water Fishery, which can be found to the east.
Access to the property is mainly via the R317 which connects to a local roadway in front of the building. The charming town of Newport, built on the Black Oak River, is approximately a 10-minute drive away,. Positioned on the Wild Atlantic Way and on the inner Shores of Clew Bay, the Greenway runs through the town leading south to Westport and northwards to Achill Island. A number of different shops, butchers and other food shops are located, along with a café and various bars.
Knock Airport is also within driving distance and is just 59km away.
