This stunning 2-bay cut-stone period / architectural gem has been sympathetically and stylishly restored creating the perfect combination of period character with a 21st-century interior with no expense spared whatsoever.
Originally two former worker’s cottages forming part of the Hamilton Estate and used to service the nearby Fintra House, the cottages date back to circa 1895 and were converted into a single-family home in the 1960s and now have been attentively refurbished by the current owners.
With only a handful of nearby neighbours, the property is just a five-minute stroll to Fintra Beach and overlooks Ballyara River. Set on a mature site the property sits on a slightly elevated site spanning c. 0.81 acres.
In brief, the internal living accommodation extends to 2,035 sq.ft consisting of elegantly appointed accommodation spilt over two levels to include a spacious kitchen featuring newly installed bespoke hardwood units and polished quartz worktops finished with a Belfast sink and new top of the range appliances, with a utility and boot room/larder off the kitchen.
There is a family dining room off the kitchen with an original high beam cottage style fireplace featuring a built-in cast iron stove. The sitting room has a raised cast iron wood burning stove and distressed oak floor throughout. There is also a study/office with direct access to the guest w.c. Completing the accommodation are three generously proportioned first floor bedrooms serviced by two bathrooms.
While the location enjoys all the attributes of country living, the property has high speed fiber broadband and is situated on the outskirts of Killybegs (approx 5 km) which is a community orientated town steeped in history and famed for being Ireland’s premier fishing port. The majestic Slieve League is approx 15 kms away and is a highly popular tourist destination attracting a large volume of visitors from all over the world.
If you are looking for a change of lifestyle and a change of pace, this beautifully presented and unique property could fulfil your dreams.
