Designed and decorated to resemble a cottage, it has attractive flower-filled gardens on the outside and an old style interior with cornicing, some timber panelling and a kitchen with a range.

But despite the cozy décor, this is a 2,000 sq ft five bed dormer bungalow with solar panels and a C1 energy rating.

Guiding at €285,000, it’s on the market with Property Partners Gallivan who say the 2002-built property is full of character and charm and is located less than three miles from Killarney.

To the front there’s a timber-floored lounge with timber flooring, a bay window with a fitted seat, a stove and a wall of bookcases.

Beyond this is a spacious kitchen/dining/living area with white painted oak units with a Rangemaster dual cooker and granite and teak worktops. Off the dining area is a small sunroom.

At ground level there’s also a utility room, a shower room and three bedrooms including one en suite.

Lit by Velux windows the landing has bookshelves and is used as a study. There are two upstairs bedrooms including one with a walk in wardrobe and an en suite.

Set on a site of almost a third of an acre, Bramble Cottage has well-tended gardens and a raised south-facing patio with river and mountain views. It also has a garage and a large workshop.
