Serenity in the Heartlands
Lovely 3 Bedroom Bungalow with Quaint thatched Cottage
with Courtyard & Stone Outbuildings on circa 5 acres
- Once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a quaint thatched cottage together with a well presented bungalow on a small holding of circa 5 acres. The bungalow is situated on an elevated site surrounded by a well maintained mature landscaped garden with secluded privacy. This property comes to the market with serious potential to turn it into a beautiful home, tourist attraction or just savour the lifestyle of our previous generations. The property oozes character from the minute you enter the driveways to this gem in the countryside where nature just takes over. The courtyard style farmyard with its stone buildings which was once the bustling hub of this large farm in Ireland is the centrepiece. This section of the property is crying out to be restored to its former glory and is overlooked by an orchard which was commonplace with most farmhouses and added to the self sufficiency of the family unit. The backdrop to the bungalow is formed by the traditional thatched cottage which dates back to the 1820's and this gives a real awareness of the heritage and culture that surrounds this place that’s nestled in the heart of the midlands. This cottage was maintained and thatched by the Carey family for several generations. The cottage was thatched approximately 16 years ago and this offers you the opportunity to restore the entire holding to whatever your dreams will allow.
- It was well known by locals and people from further a field with card playing, music, song and dance. There was a great sense of atmosphere and love for traditional music in this home. This was clearly shown every year when the threshing took place and all the neighbours congregated here to lend a hand for this event. Everyone was welcome and they came in great numbers from all corners of Ireland where they sang and danced around this kitchen floor until the small hours of the morning when dawn broke again. This is a very special place and it depicts the real values of Irish culture, heritage and tradition that has been handed down from one generation to the next. It obviously has multiple end uses and this will only be realised in the eye of the beholder. Whether you are interested in a tourist venture, quaint family home or simply realise a strong investment for short or long term rental. All those and many more opportunities exist right here. The only annoyance you will have here is the dawn chorus and the birdsong from the tree tops and there are an abundance of mature trees on this holding. The cottage accommodation includes a parlour, kitchen, scullery, bedroom and a loft for sleeping accommodation. A person with good imagination can restore this to its original former glory.
- Apart from the natural beauty attached to this property there is the massive advantage of the bungalow accommodation which has its own separate driveway to that of the thatched cottage and courtyard. The bungalow accommodation includes 3 nicely proportioned bedrooms, kitchen, living room, sitting room, wet room and separate toilet room. Excellent condition throughout.
- The only way to appreciate the property is by making an appointment to view.
