A HOME THAT manages to seamlessly blend traditional elegance with modern amenities, Bramble Cottage is a warm and stylish build with a lot to offer. 

On first look, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s centuries old. But the truth is that this five-bed, five-bath gem dates to the mid ‘90s.

Offering a generous 390 m² of space, it’s now on the market for €1,150,000

Bramble Cottage sits on about half an acre allowing for peaceful surroundings that aren’t completely isolated. Located on Strandhill Road, you enter through the automatic gate and are met with a driveway to the cottage. The property definitely stands out with its modern thatched roof and reclaimed timber beam frames. And although built in 1995, some reclaimed features like the beams are over 100 years old.

As soon as you see the entrance hall, it’s clear that corners weren’t cut when it came to renovating. This space has a coal stove, original flagstone flooring, exposed wooden beams and a stand-out atrium staircase. Here, the ceilings are five metres high.

The drawing room has exposed wooden beams, carpeted floors, a fireplace and large period-style windows that look out to the front garden. Towards the back, a living and dining room with an open plan layout connects to the kitchen,  a modern and high-end space filled with modern appliances and home to a handy island.

The ground floor is also home to a utility room and a back hall with a door to the other side of the house. One of five bedrooms and an adjoining bathroom completes the ground floor.

The first floor is home to the remaining four bedrooms. Three of them have their own walk-in wardrobes. Every bedroom isn’t just a double, but has its own bathroom too. And their custom lit mirrors and waterfall showers are bound to make getting up in the morning that bit easier. 

A cleverly concealed staircase leads to a spacious attic, which can serve as a kids’ playroom or cinema room.

Outside, there is a terrace that faces south and has a gas fire pit. What’s more is that mood lights have been installed throughout the garden making it a wonderful place to entertain in. 

For peace of mind and safety, there is a wireless security system and some cameras already dotted around the property.

This complete renovation included reroofing and it’s now made from 100% reed, which requires minimal maintenance and offers longevity.

Bramble Cottage is a testament to thoughtful design, making for tranquil escape in the heart of beautifully scenic Sligo.
