THIS CHARMING WELL MAINTAINED PROPERTY WAS CONSTRUCTED IN THE 1950S OF BLOCK CONSTRUCTION WITH A RENDERED EXTERIOR UNDER A CONCRETE TILE ROOF AND HAS BEEN UPGRADED BY THE PRESENT OWNERS TO PROVIDE A COMFORTABLE FAMILY HOME. THE LANDS OF THE PROPERTY RUN DOWN TO THE SEA AND THIS CHARMING 3 BEDROOM COTTAGE NEEDS TO BE INSPECTED INTERNALLY TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED

The property was constructed in the 1950s of block construction with a rendered exterior under a fibre slate roof. The property is well maintained throughout with accommodation consisting of entrance hall, sitting room, galley kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom. There is double glazing throughout and economic night storage heating.

The property is set in one of the loveliest and most unspoilt coastlines in the West of Ireland, enormously popular in the summer but most attractive all year round. The cottage is quietly tucked away down its own drive and approached off a council road through a gate. The village of Carna is just over 2.5 miles away with shops, church, post office, pubs, hotel, national and secondary schools and a nursing home.

A summary of the accommodation with room aspects and approximate room measurements is as follows:

ENTRANCE HALL: (NE, SW) 1.41 m x 6.89 m (48 x 227), with tiled linoleum flooring throughout, coving, access to loft via hatch, doors leading to kitchen/sitting room, bathroom and 2 bedrooms.

LIVING ROOM: (SW) 4.96 m x 3.01 m (163 x 910), with linoleum tiled flooring throughout, coving, small range of wall mounted and base units, space for gas hob, space for large fridge freezer, potential for range or solid fuel stove, lovely views to the front, television point and door leading to bedroom and galley kitchen.

GALLEY KITCHEN: 1.92 m x 1.29 m (64 x 43), with matching range of wall mounted and base units, inset stainless steel sink drainer, space and plumbing for washing machine and dryer and access to hot press.

OUTSIDE: The property is approached by a tarmaced driveway through a gated entrance off the main road with the driveway leading to the front side and rear of the property. The lands of the property are situated in 3 main parcels with the largest parcel surrounding the house. This equates to 2.084 hectares (5.15 acres) of attractive gardens primarily laid to grass and enclosed within traditional stone walling. To the rear of the house there is the original family home which subject to planning could be resurrected to create an additional dwelling house. This measures 8 meters x 6 meters of stone construction with a corrugated iron roof. To the side of this there is a small piggery which requires rebuilding. The lands stretch down to a small local lake which provides the water supply for the land.

The second parcel of land marked 26C which is situated to the south of the main road occupies a site of 0.17 hectares (0.42 acres). This land is almost adjacent to the final parcel of land which runs down to the sea and could provide pedestrian access to the Atlantic Ocean. This land is overgrown and has not been used for several years but comes with vacant possession.

OUTSIDE: To the front of the property there is an enclosed garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with chipped pathway leading to the front door, to the rear of the property there is a small enclosed garden. To the rear there is an additional circa 13.5 acres of land which is available but should the purchaser not require this, then this can be removed from the transaction. To the southern side of the road the property owns a further circa 2 acres of land which is all coastal frontage and will provide the perfect location to moor a boat should this be desired.

SERVICES: mains electricity, mains water, septic tank drainage
