Most Impressive, 5 Bedroom Cottage-Style Residence On A Spectacular C. 5 Acre Well Maintained Site With Captivating Views For Sale By Private Treaty
‘Jigsaw Cottage' can only be described as a unique and special ‘gem' tucked away in a tranquil setting in the rolling South Wicklow countryside with a stunning picture-postcard backdrop of the rugged Wicklow Mountains National Park with Lugnaquilla and its smaller outliers as the spectacular centre-piece. To the South lies Ballycumber Hill, a prominent ridge interwoven with an array of looped hiking trails, while the world-renowned 130km Wicklow Way is within 1 km of the property. This unique combination of hiking and outdoor pursuits makes the property a perfect choice for those who enjoy the outdoor life, whilst also benefiting from the spectacular Wicklow countryside on the doorstep. Due to it's proximity to The Wicklow Way, the property is also ideally suited as a guest house, this having previously been successfully established by the present owners for over ten years.
Golf enthusiasts are similarly spoiled for choice, with Woodenbridge, Coolattin, Mount Wolseley, Carlow and Baltinglass all within easy reach while the higher-profile European Link Course at Brittas Bay and Druid's Glen are all under an hour away. The property is 2km from the quaint village of Knockananna and its local amenities, 10 to 20 minutes drive to Hacketstown, Tinahely & Aughrim, 30 minutes drive to Gorey, Arklow & Tullow, all with an extensive array of amenities including shops, schools, restaurants, bars, hotels and sporting facilities. Dublin City is just over an hour's drive.
The residence is approached from the public road via a short laneway which leads to a gravelled entrance driveway and parking area. Built in the mid to late 1990's, the 5 bedroom cottage-style home is south facing and quite simply oozes charm and character. It is constructed with locally sourced granite stone and brick with cast granite sills, exposed rafters and a tiled roof. Bright and spacious accommodation is presented in pristine condition throughout and briefly consists of entrance hall leading to sitting room with feature brick built open fire and Oak floor, office/study off, w.c. and purpose built drying room for wet gear/boots, solid wooden double doors lead to a spacious dining room with rustic tiled floor, Stanley wood burning stove and exposed timber beams, recently refurbished kitchen with pantry / porch off, a substantial conservatory, the perfect location to appreciate the panoramic views / evening sunsets, guest / principal bedroom with en-suite, all situated on the ground floor. A traditional stairs with timber bannisters leads to a spacious landing and first floor, giving access to four large bedrooms, two en-suite and two sharing a bathroom, all with feature timber ceilings.
Outside, the exterior grounds are meticulously maintained with a parkland area to the front of the house, incorporating a nature-friendly pond and flower beds overlooked by a sunny timber deck area. Overall, the property sits on an envious c. 5 acre mature and well-tended site that also includes rockeries, extensive organic vegetable and flower gardens, two poly tunnels, two Heritage Variety apple orchards, one Dessert and the other Cider, various fruit and berry trees and recently established mixed (mainly Oak) woodlands, truly a gardeners' paradise. An equally impressive range of exterior buildings include a cut stone utility room incorporating an eco-friendly Biomass (wood-pellet) cum solar panel central heating system, Sauna and Cider store, a pump-house, fruit/veg store which is fully insulated, a workshop / machinery store, a beekeeping equipment store and a separate conventional oil fired central heating unit.
