Rose Cottage, Killucan, Co Westmeath


Five-bedroom detached home on an acre

Built in the 1850s for the tenants of the Earl of Longford's estate, this two-storey house extending to 2,300 sq ft comes complete with one acre of landscaped gardens, as well as a granny annexe.

Made distinctive by the red brickwork around the front windows and porch, the house is fully finished both inside and out, with a maintenance-free multi-level deck area accessed through the kitchen.

The kitchen itself has underfloor heating and large windows which allow in streams of natural light.

Double doors lead from here into the sitting room which features a cast-iron open fireplace with granite hearth.

Also on this floor is a fully-equipped utility room and study/office with fitted shelving, as well as a living room with brick-surround open fireplace.

Two single and two double bedrooms are located upstairs, while a large en suite master bedroom with four large windows allows views of the back garden. Each of these bedrooms, as well as the sitting, living and study room, comes fitted with pine flooring.

A generously sized family bathroom is also found upstairs, with power shower and fitted cream units.

Outside, the granny annexe features a kitchen, bathroom and loft area.

Situated within walking distance of Killucan village, this house is close to many educational and recreational facilities, making it a suitable option for a growing family.
