Weave a spell at scenic thatch

NESTLED at the foot of Slievenamon, in Tipperary, is a pretty little thatched cottage with a barn, a stream and a duck pond. Owned by a basket weaver, the 250-year-old property is a protected structure with a newly thatched roof and original features.

Open to offers of €215,000, it’s on the market with Sherry Fitzgerald Gerald Brennan & Walsh, who say the location is scenic and peaceful and the property well-maintained and traditional.

The front doors open into a timber-floored kitchen with an open hearth, a timber ceiling, and a Belfast sink. Accommodation includes a parlour with a fireplace and a latted ceiling, a bathroom, a shower room and an attic bedroom. Central heating is oil fired and there are timber windows.

Outbuildings include a 700 sq ft, two-storey, timber-built guest chalet, which has a living room with a Belfast sink, a bathroom and two bedrooms. There’s also a large loft barn with a workshop, and a stone-built outbuilding. On a three-and-a-half acre site, the cottage is 12 miles from Clonmel.
