THE word ‘dotey’ doesn’t even begin to do justice to this restored cottage near Skibbereen, but it’s a good start.
Simply titled ‘Old Cottage’, it’s a glorious example of how very often simple is best, and that big isn’t always beautiful.
Extending to a compact 1154 sq ft, it’s a two/three-bedroom property, that has been sensitively renovated, and exquisitely decorated and it comes to market with an asking price of €325,000.
Space is used well and accommodation comprises a large kitchen/dining space with exposed stone wall, high ceiling and Stanley stove; a separate sitting room, and sun room which has almost an entire full wall of glazing.
One of the two bedrooms has access to the garden, which includes a, dare I repeat myself, dotey patio, surrounded by extensive, mature planting on a one-acre site.
This old cottagewould make an ideal retirement home, with very little upkeep, or would also make a great summer bolthole.
