As it stands, Penley Cottage is a quaint, 940 sq ft house in good condition.
It's real potential, however, lies in the large 0.67 acre site to the side of the property. With planning permission and good design, this modest three-bedroom cottage could be transformed into a much larger family home.
The cottage was recently renovated, and is bright and fresh.
The entrance hall with its timber flooring leads into the living room. This room has a solid-fuel stove, recessed shelving and access to the attic.
The kitchen has traditional cream units, a dresser and dual-aspect windows. There is a utility room off the kitchen.
There is another living room on the other side of the house, also with a stove and carpeted floor.
The master bedroom is en-suite, and the other two bedrooms have new carpets and are fitted with blackout blinds. The cottage sits on an elevated site with views out over the countryside. There are a few outhouses that could be used as workshops or storage, and a timber cabin that would make an ideal home office.
The garden to the rear is mostly laid in lawn, with mature planting and a gravel path. You could double the size of the cottage with the site to the side, or even build a separate property.
Dunnstown is a quiet townland, just a few miles from Twomilehouse, Naas and Kilcullen. Naas has become very popular with commuters who are looking for value for money.
The nearby N7 connects Naas with the M50 and the train station at Sallins is packed with city workers every morning preparing for their 30-minute journey into the capital.
Penley Cottage is for sale through agent Austin Egan of Appleton Property in Kilcullen (045) 482759, with a guide price of €370,000.
