A REAL-LIFE FAIRYTALE cottage, Creech Barrow looks as if it emerged straight from a Disney film to the heart of Delgany village. It is situated on a private and manicured garden of 0.3 acres, and enjoys the sun in the afternoon and evenings thanks to its south-westerly orientation.

Creech Barrow has all of the romantic, classic charm of a country cottage while modern conveniences have been integrated seamlessly – impressive for a cottage that dates back to 1950.

What’s more, a detached mews with its own kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom means guests and family members can have complete privacy and independence if they wish.

From the hallway, a sitting area incorporates solid timber flooring, an open fireplace and large windows that make it the perfect space for all seasons. Timber panelling on the ceiling and a mezzanine overlooking the ground floor contribute even more light and space.

Double doors from this room lead to the drawing room with its vaulted beam ceiling in duck egg blue and continuing solid timber floors. A window seat overlooks the rear garden and a door to this outside space.

The kitchen is fully-fitted and comes complete with a range cooker that’s in keeping with the country cottage style. Plenty of storage cupboards and integrated appliances, a stainless steel sink and tiled splash backs make for easy cleaning.  

Doors from the kitchen lead to a utility room and the outdoor patio area.

Three of the four bedrooms reside downstairs meaning the master bedroom benefits from complete privacy on the floor above. A bay window and seating area in this top floor bedroom peer over the gardens, and his-and-hers dressing rooms up the privacy and space factors even more.

Across the landing, the bathroom is large in size because it was converted from a bedroom – adding even more luxury to the master suite.

The site is surrounded by mature plants that offer plenty of privacy. A large lawn and spaces for a number of cars ensure Creech Barrow will be a dream for kids’ playdates and outdoor parties.
