The Cottage, Ballinatona, Manor Kilbride, Blessington, Co. Wicklow, €447,500
The kind of property that wouldn’t look out of place between the ‘celebrity home’ pages of Architectural Digest, this Wicklow cottage oozes charm and boasts exceptional character. Set in an idyllic location in the Wicklow countryside, the property was built around 1850 and has been sympathetically extended by its current owners.
There is a feeling of great authenticity in this home, with salvaged materials used in the extension and antique fixtures and fittings introduced from the cottage’s original era. Sitting on 0.5 acres of stunning landscaped gardens that provide colour all year round, the three bedroom property features a glorious living room with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, a generous kitchen with two Belfast sinks, and an incredible conservatory that links the cottage to the front garden and the gravel drive.
Viewings can be arranged through Sherry FitzGerald O’Reilly (Naas).
Tawley, Castlegal, Co. Leitrim, €330,000
A one of a kind stone cottage nestled among mature lush grounds, this property will catapult you back in time with its charm, character and beautiful features throughout. The deceptively spacious accommodation comprises an entrance central reception room with handcrafted mosaic tiled flooring and an original arched fireplace with stove, cosy sitting room with solid fuel stove and beam feature ceiling, a well equipped kitchen and three sizeable bedrooms with vaulted timber ceilings with feature beams.
To the rear, there’s a private sheltered garden with mature trees and a planting that wraps around the cottage with pretty border beds filled with colourful flowers and shrubs. There is also a separate stone outbuilding to the rear with enormous potential to be further developed.
Viewings can be arranged through Sherry FitzGerald Draper.
Tara Lodge, Swainestown, Kilmessan, Co. Meath, €450,000
Tara Lodge may look like your run of the mill cottage at a glance, but this attractive stone cut sale also comprises a substantial two-bedroom log cabin, and two additional cabins suitable for holiday let. Hugely unique, this Meath lodge is located amidst a most scenic setting close to the Hill of Tara and Killeen Castle. The adjacent two-bedroom log house provides warm and comfortable accommodation with high ceiling, and the site totals an approximate seven acres with good road frontage and beautiful surrounding hedgerows.
The cottage itself was renovated just 20 years ago and contains a large open plan kitchen with wooden flooring, a brick fireplace, laminate countertops, and an integrated oven. There’s also a beautiful, well-lit master bedroom, guest bathroom, and entrance hallway.
Viewings available through Coonan Property (Maynooth).
