Located in Glengort, Tournafulla, in the rural west of Limerick, this sale is made up of two picturesque cottages in a tranquil setting on a large site of approximately 1.38 acres.

Brought to the market by DNG Declan Woulfe Estate Agents for €295,000, the sale of this property comprises two picturesque cottages in a tranquil rural setting on a large site of approximately 1.38 acres in West Limerick. Both cottages fit snugly into the wooded setting while capturing splendid views of the surrounding hinterland.

Both cottages are in excellent decorative condition, providing a blank canvas to possibly redevelop them into other residential or possible commercial use in a beautiful location with very scenic views in all directions.

The gardens were transformed over the years where flowers, shrubs and trees were planted from all over the world. Today, the gardens make full advantage of the magnificent grounds and stunning views.

Both cottages were purchased by the current owners, world renowned wood sculptor Ian Norbury and his wife Betty, expert in contemporary bespoke furniture, who saw massive potential in both properties and they started work on the cottages and gardens to transform them into the beauty they are today.

Ian Norbury Studio cottage was constructed in the early 20th century and extends to circa 60 sqm, comprises of a lounge/dining room, kitchen, utility, sunroom, wet room, along with a double bedroom and another room which is used as a study which can be also be utilised as a bedroom. A small workshop off the utility could be adapted as required, heating is provided with electric storage heaters, wood fired range and small wood-burning stove.

Ryans cottage was also constructed in the early 20th century and extends to circa 82 sqm, comprises of a lounge, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms and a bathroom, heating is provided with oil fired central heating, wood-burning stove and open fireplace

The wonderfully manicured gardens have a large variety of flora such as exotic trees, shrubs and ferns, medicinal plants, vegetable garden, orchard, woodland area, streams, ponds and fountains, with a wealth of sculptures along with a meandering stone and gravel and chip driveway with the benefit of a gazebo to enjoy the sunshine and views of the surrounding hinterland.

The cottages are located in a rural upland setting on a quiet country road. Located 3km from the village of Tournafulla and 10 km from the market town of Abbeyfeale, 18km from the county town of Newcastle West. The Limerick Greenway is within 4.5 Km.

This is an ideal property for someone looking for a private retreat or can be used for other possible uses or even for investment purposes as short or long term rentals in the area where there is excellent demand.

In summary these properties offer unlimited potential and are certainly worth viewing and only on inspection can one fully appreciate their uniqueness in an area of such natural beauty with lovely walking routes.
