Stunning stone built residence in delightful rural setting close to Clonegal village.
This beautiful period property was originally a stone built two up two down cottage constructed over 200 years ago. About 25 years ago a stone built extension was added to the rear, constructed sympathetically to the original with many of the same materials. Today, the property is a delight with all the charm of bygone days yet boasting all the comforts of modern living. Deceptively spacious, it boasts both a living and sitting room in addition to an olde worlde country style kitchen complete with natural slate floor. Upstairs, there are three large double bedrooms and a charming family bathroom. Outside, it sits on a little less than half an acre of beautiful landscaped gardens that have been lovingly maintained over the years. All this only three kilometres from the picturesque village of Clonegal.
The village of Clonegal sits in a valley between the Blackstairs and Wicklow Mountains and straddling the meeting place of the Slaney and Derry rivers. The counties of Carlow, Wicklow and Wexford also meet here. The historic Clonegal Castle, located in the heart of the village, is renowned worldwide while in more recent times the acclaimed Sha-Roe restaurant, featured in the Michelin Guide, has brought visitors from far and wide. The mountains, the valleys and the rivers, the fishing and the shooting facilities here make this village, at the end of the Wicklow Way, a must for anyone interested in seeing life in rural Ireland at its brilliant best.
This is a rare opportunity to own a property of such character in one of the most unspoilt landscapes in Ireland.
