Wicklow retreat on 10 acres
The modest exterior of this Co Wicklow property doesn't do justice to its considerable charms. A neat and compact stone cottage with stone outhouses, it's a place that would make a fine starter home, a perfect retirement property or an ideal bolthole from city life.
The fully renovated, stone-built cottage with two stone-built stables and useful out houses on 10ac at Tuckmills, Baltinglass is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €239,000.
Located on a country road off the N81 Dublin to Baltinglass Road the holding is 4km from Baltinglass and 27km from Blessington.
Set on its own natural grounds the cottage accommodation includes two bedrooms, a spacious kitchen/living room, a shower room and a hallway.
The house has been beautifully refurbished and many of the old features are maintained like the stonework, vaulted ceilings, wooden floors and a half door.
At the same time the most modern building techniques and finishes have been applied. The kitchen in particular, while having the feel of a traditional country kitchen has all the conveniences for modern living.
Outside there are two stone-built stables in perfect condition and two larger lean-to style farm sheds that could be used for a variety of purposes from storage to workshops.
The 10ac is all in old pasture and runs down to a brook. The place is dotted with lovely trees and would be ideal as a hobby farm or an addition to an existing operation, according to auctioneer Paul Doyle.
