A PICTURE-perfect cottage – inside and out – might tug at your heartstrings if you give it a second glance.
Shoestring Cottage, at Dromig, three miles from the busy town of Skibbereen, is a three-bedroom cosy home, over 1,200sq ft of well-maintained rooms, off a main road.
There is a drive up to the house which is surrounded by a lawn, shrubbery, hedging and mature trees.
Entering the house through the pretty porch area, you walk into the large living room which has a stove and wooden flooring. It is currently decorated in soothing cream colours. From here you can enter the adjoining dining room or access the sunroom at the rear of the property. The latter has a sloping ceiling with a velux window and double French doors to the garden.
There is also a third exit from the living room that leads out to the bathroom which includes a built-in storage area.
The modern well-equipped kitchen is off the dining room, and there is also access to the garden from the kitchen.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms off a central landing. Features in this home include an elm staircase, elm window sills and sash windows in the main reception rooms.
There is also separate guest accommodation which could easily be converted for use as a child or teen’s den or an artist’s studio. There are lovely views of the lush countryside and the house is just 70 minutes’ drive from Cork Airport.
