Cottage on 20 Acres -Geevagh, Co Sligo
A regretful sale due to the covid pandemic, this 200yr old stone cottage & 20 acres less than 30 mins drive from Sligo town centre & Carrick on Shannon town centre is now on the market. This unique south facing property has stunning views overlooking the valley below across to the caves of Kesh and is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac lane. The land is full of character including old cottage ruins, a stream which can be heard from the cottage & meanders along its boundaries creating hidden dells with great potential for creating spaces for the likes of glamping.
What the cottage lacks for in size it makes up for in huge potential, with options to renovate the existing cottage as a main residence or holiday home and also planning potential to build a new property within the 20 acres.
The cottage which was originally divided into 3 small rooms has been cleared of the collapsing chimney to create 1 large open space of 11m x 3.5m, at the back of the property is a well constructed extension build in the 90’s, consisting of 2 rooms, one of which is currently a bathroom. To the side of the cottage is an outbuilding with the potential to extend into the living space. At the back of the cottage further space allows for expansion of the existing extension.
Unlike many properties of this size, age & price - the property has electricity, registered septic tank, oil central heating and a private well. The large acreage also opens further opportunities to apply for woodland planting grants and small farming business grants such as REPS.
This property is suited for those looking for peace & quiet, plenty of private space surrounded by nature to live the dream of living off the land in the west of Ireland.
