EXPOSED brick walls, vaulted ceilings, Irish countryside views at your doorstep.
If this sounds too good to be true, take a look at this thatch cottage in Co. Clare.
Located in Tullagower, Cooraclare, Kilrush and on the market for €175,000 (approx £155,000), sales agents Sherry Fitzgerald McMahon describe the property as ‘the postcard of Irish cottages’.
“Fire crackling, warm cup of tea whilst watching the rolling hills from the windows. Here is your opportunity to purchase such a place,” they state.
Over 150 years old the cottage, which comes with an outbuilding and 0.5acres of garden, is located just outside Kilrush.
Having been bought by an US couple in 2009, it has since been completely renovated and will be sold fully furnished.
The furnishings alone come to a total of €12,000, having been shipped from Restoration Hardware in the US.
With solid fuel stoves in the kitchen and master bedroom and double-glazed windows throughout, cosy is the name of the game in this cottage.
“Why buy a property and have to deal with the years of renovation required - both time, budget overruns and labour - when you can own one turn-key,” the agents state.
