Primrose path to Co Kildare cottage
Primrose Cottage €480k
Primrose Cottage, at Mile Mill near Kilcullen in Co Kildare, is only half an hour's drive from the outskirts of Dublin, which makes it a pretty easy commute.
But you might not even have to make the journey, as the property comes with a separate home office.
The office is detached, a small distance from the main house, and has its own entrance. It's 240 sq ft or so, with an office, store room and toilet, so you can reasonably expect not to be plagued by domestic concerns while you're trying to work.
The house itself has been lately refurbished and extended to 2,660 sq ft. That includes four bedrooms, three on the ground floor and one upstairs. The first-floor bedroom is the master suite and has a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite double shower, and there's also a bathroom on this level with a stand-alone bath.
Back on the ground floor there's a very pleasant entrance hall with a cast-iron fireplace and quarter-turn wooden staircase, open-string. Left of this is a triple-aspect sitting room, roughly 20ft square with an oak floor, a beamed ceiling and a sandstone fireplace.
To the right of the entrance hall there's an eat-in kitchen with pine cabinets, granite countertops and a Belfast sink. Past the kitchen is the dual-aspect dining room, also with an oak floor, and both kitchen and dining room have 12ft ceilings.
The three ground-floor bedrooms are off a second inner hallway, and there's also a utility room, guest toilet and shower on this level.
It's on two-thirds of an acre with a stream at the boundary. The gardens are mainly lawned, with flowerbeds and fruit trees, and there's a greenhouse and a couple of other sheds.
Primrose Cottage is for sale for €480,000 with Jordan Town and Country (045) 433550.
