TUCKED AWAY IN the Co Roscommon countryside, Cloontowart is a charming two-bed cottage that offers more than meets the eye. 

On the market for €130,000 through Moovingo, the property was refurbished and extended in 2019 and is in excellent condition.

It sits on one acre of gardens with beds and assortment of fruit trees and bushes, with nearby woodland adding further to the sense of peacefulness and privacy. There’s also a poly grow tunnel and a chicken run, while a rainwater harvesting system is attached to the cottage itself.

Stepping inside, the accommodation measures 775 sq ft and briefly comprises an open plan kitchen and living area, two double bedrooms, one en suite bathroom and one main bathroom. 

There’s a solid fuel stove in the open plan area which runs the hot water tank and seven radiators, making for a warm and cosy feel throughout the house.

The kitchen features sleek black cabinets and counter tops, a centre island and plenty of storage space, while Velux windows allow for plenty of natural light. Exposed stonework at one end pays homage to the original cottage design.

The biggest bedroom is to the rear of the property and benefits from French doors which overlook the gardens and surrounding greenery, and is spacious enough to include a working-from-home area if needed.
