Picture the scene.
It’s a warm summer evening. You uncork a bottle of wine as a gentle breeze drifts through the kitchen from the open glazed wall.
The low hum of music… the chatter of your guests on the deck outside.
This is what the rest of summer 2020 has in store for the new owners of River Cottage in Iniscarra, which has hit the market at €330,000.
Sure; it’s not cheap, but this is a forever home with character. Formerly known as 1 Kelleher’s Villas (No. 2 is also for sale, more here), the tw0-bedroom, two-bathroom property is in turn-key condition, tastefully revamped inside with an emphasis on energy efficiency.
Imagine; you’d never need to visit a DIY store again except for the odd haul of seasonal plants to add to the stunning landscaped gardens.
While the decking area will be an extra living space in the summer months, large windows ensure the effect is not lost when it gets colder. A wood-burning stove (and oil-fired central heating) will ensure the open-plan space is cosy during winter.
A huge picture window looks east along the river and the glass wall offers an unobstructed 180-degree view of the winding river from the living and dining space.
There are two large double bedrooms (one ensuite). Both bedrooms boast high ceilings to create a lofty, spacious feeling.
Just a short drive from Ballincollig’s shops, schools and services, River Cottage offers a slice of country life without sacrificing modern convenience.
