All that you could wish for in a cute country cottage seems to be on offer at this detached stone fronted property near Dungourney. Prettily decorated inside and outside, it has timber paneled ceilings, doors and walls, a stone fire surround and a sunroom.

It also offers countryside views and close to a half acre of grounds with a well tended patio garden. There’s a fish pond and an abundance of colourful plants and shrubs As an added extra there’s also a business opportunity – in the shape of a cattery with nine individual chalets/bays which the owners built at the bottom of the garden.

Guiding at €220,000, it’s being sold through Cronin Wall Properties who say it is full of charm and character. At the front it has rustic style kitchen diner with white units and at the rear a lounge with a high ceiling and a stove with a stone surround. There’s also a utility room, a bathroom and sunroom at the rear. The cottage also has three prettily decorated bedrooms, including one en suite.

The southwest facing garden has a patio/ gravel area where the owners have created a slightly Japanese style garden with a Koi pond.

Located 1.5km from Dungourney, the property is getting viewings from first time buyers and downsizers. “For young couples it’s a place to bring the kids up in the country – for downsizers it’s an attractive single storey property with low maintenance gardens,’’ observes auctioneer Shay Cronin.
