Cottage on 0.5 acre site

With a secluded loaction in  beautiful rural countryside near Lough Arrow Lake, the property is totally hidden away, yet convenient to all amenities.   Used over the last quarter of a century as a Fishermans base and holiday cottage, it has been loved and appreciated by all who had the previledge of living and staying in it.

Originally an old 3 roomed traditional cottage of nearly 100 years of age, the property was renovated and had a small extension done 20 years ago.

The setting is magic, located in the hills over Lough Arrow which is internationally renowned for its great Trout Fishing.  The areas of Castlebaldwin, Heapstown and Highwood are steeped in Celtic Folklore, with historic trails all around this area.

The cottage itself is comfortable but basic, and has huge potential to bring up to modern standards without losing any of its old world charm.   While the cottage has only one bedroom at present, the large living space could be divided to provide a second bedrom in the cottage.  

In addition the relatively recently built garage has huge potential for either a workshop/studio,  and/or extra accommodation for those seeking more accommodation.

The property iis accessed off the public road by a 400 metre gravel laneway, over which 2 gates have to be opened and closed.  While inconvenient for some, this also adds to the charm and sense of seclusion.

The cottage site is well endowned with trees, but glimses of the valley underneath can be caught from various parts of the garden.

The property is secluded yet within a 10 minute drive  to the N4 (Sligo-Dublin Road), with Dublin within a two and a half hour drive, and Sligo just a 30 minute drive.  Knock Airport (IReland West) 30 minutes drive away and Belfast approx two and a half hours away.
