McInerney auctioneers, Gort are instructed to offer for sale by way of private treaty one a unique and picturesque home. Located at Capacasheen, Normangrove, Kinvara, is this wonderfully charming country home. Originally built c1900 and used as a barn, the property came to life in the seventies when it was totally refurbished into this cosy home with a strong emphasis on traditional stone and timber work throughout.
This is unusual in another way in that it is semidetached but the agents are very keen to stress that both homes are independent of each other with no major effect on privacy.
The property is sited on a small, beautifully landscaped plot offering scenic views of the Burren to the rear. This is a very relaxed and private setting a couple of hundred yards off the Gort–Ballyvaughan road that detours around Kinvara.
The property comprises kitchen/dining area, sitting room, bathroom, two bedrooms, and a large study which offers potential for one or two other bedrooms.
Only by way of an inspection can you fully appreciated the myriad little intricacies around the property, such as the two legged tree, the gantry overlooking the sitting room, the magnificent stone open fireplace, and the use of natural lighting not just to brighten the home but also to decorate it.
The property has the benefit of a gas fired and open fired heating, shared water supply, biodegradable sewerage treatment, and most importantly has broadband access connected. The vendors will consider offering various effects including washing machine, cooker, etc.
The study can be accessed directly from kitchen or via a very, shall we say, ‘individual’ access from the guest bedroom.
This property certainly has an abundance of charm and even in this difficult market sales negotiator Austin McInerney believes that interest will be high. “There are a lot of buyers still looking for the rare and unusual, something unique with character and this property has all of these traits in abundance,” he said.
Inspections are by appointment only with the sole selling agents. Offers are requested in the region of just €250,000.
