Three-bedroom country cottage
After coming onto the market with an asking price of €180,000, this three-bed country cottage in Ratchinagh near Strokestown is now reduced to sell at €80,000. The house stands on an elevated site overlooking the River Shannon. As an added bonus, the Ratchinagh cottage comes with an option to purchase right-of-way access on to the Kilglass Lake, which is part of the Shannon.
The house itself is in need of modernisation. Some 56sqm in size, it includes a living room and kitchen with wooden flooring, traditional stone hearth fireplace, fitted units and a raftered ceiling finish.
The three good-sized bedrooms have wooden flooring. Outside, the cottage has a driveway, a spacious site area, and useful storage sheds for further development subject to the appropriate planning permission.
The cottage is located just off the main Strokestown to Carrick-on-Shannon Road adjacent to the Silver Eel bar and restaurant.
The area is a popular tourist spot and its lakes and natural resources make it a big draw for boating and fishing.
