This renovated cottage near Durrus guiding at €250,000 is an extended and upgraded two-bed river-set property, says Trish Dromey.
Size: 125sq m (1,350sq ft)
River frontage, renovated accommodation and a generous dollop of West Cork charm makes Riverside the perfect cottage for a buyer looking to take up residence or spend holidays on the scenic Sheep’s Head Peninsula.
New to the books of Pat Maguire Properties, it’s a spacious two-bed property which has been extended and upgraded by a UK owner who bought it 10 years ago.
Guiding at €250,000, it has 1,350 sq ft of accommodation and is on a site of over half an acre.
Changes made to the traditional cottage include the addition of a large sunroom, while the owner has also landscaped the grounds, built a guest chalet, and put a gazebo next to the river.
Accommodation in the cottage includes a tiled dining room as well as a modern kitchen with cream shaker style units.
At ground level, there’s also a bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath, a bedroom, a spacious timber floored sitting room and a sunroom.
In the attic space upstairs, there’s a bedroom with painted floorboards, a shower room and a landing space, lit by a Velux window, which has been put to use as a study.
During modernisation, the cottage was fitted with oil central heating and double glazed windows with plantation shutters.
Outside, there are lawned gardens, gravel paths, colourful hydrangea bushes and a patio as well as a timber chalet used as a guest bedroom.
To the rear, there’s woodland and a river which bounds the site and gives the cottage its name.
Riverside is located half a mile outside Durrus, a coastal village on the Wild Atlantic Way tourist route, which is also famous for its cheese.
VERDICT: Fillet of West Cork
