CLAY COTTAGE in west Limerick offers nicely renovated accommodation, two acres of paddock and something no traditional thatched cottage was built with, stables.
Renovated and upgraded in the last five years, the old stone-built property is on the market with O’Donovan auctioneers in Newcastle West, who say it’s very charming and is quite a bit larger than the typical thatched cottage.
The porch at the front leads through to a living/dining room which has tiled flooring, a timber panelled ceiling and a huge stone fireplace with a Stanley range. There’s also a kitchen with exposed stone walls, pine fitted units and appliances, as well as a sitting room, with rough plastered walls and a wood burning stove. Extended over the years, the ground floor of the cottage also includes a study, a bedroom and a tiled bathroom with a free-standing bath. Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms.
A large outbuilding adjoining the cottage has been turned into a studio with French doors. The cottage has double-glazed PVC window, electric heaters and solid fuel stoves.
To the front, there are extensive lawned gardens, while at the rear there’s a yard, a timber block of three stables and several areas of paddock. Guiding at €315,000 Clay Cottage is two miles from Dromcollagher village and around 35 miles from Limerick city.
