Charming ‘Old World’ Country Style Cottage In A Most Scenic Area On A C. 1.2 Acre Mature Site For Sale By Private Treaty

This charming cottage is located in a popular and sought after rural area in the heart of Co. Wicklow. It is 6km from two local attractive villages, namely Aughrim and Tinahely. Aughrim has a good range of shops, services and amenities as well as primary school, while Tinahely is a small picturesque town that also has a good selection of amenities including schools, churches, shops, restaurants, pubs, along with an array of outdoor activities with equestrian and agricultural interests predominant in the area. The property is less than an hour’s drive from south Co. Dublin.

Dating back to the mid 1800’s, the house originally comprised of two semi-detached cottages that were built by the Earls of Fitzwilliam, these were subsequently integrated as one, with the present owner having up-graded and extended the property over the past number of years. The cottage retains many original features and just oozes charm and character. Nestled in a mature and tranquil setting, it boasts a large garden with trees and water feature and enjoys stunning views of the surrounding rolling countryside. The site itself is divided equally by a hard core laneway with the cottage on c. 0.6 acres on the left hand side and a workshop (with huge potential for a variety of uses, e.g. office, art studio, etc.) on c. 0.6 acres on the right hand side, both with good road frontage.
