Originally a country cottage, this east Offaly property has been extended and completely reconstructed throughout to create a quality, A-rated country home just five minutes’ drive from the centre of Edenderry.

Having been stripped back to its core walls, and then comprehensively renovated and refitted to the highest modern new-build standards, Blackthorn Cottage is effectively a brand new house.

The rebuild includes the installation of an air-to-water heat pump system, top quality insulation, new uPVC double-glazed windows, composite front and back doors and a new slate roof, which together add up to a toasty A3 BER rating.

At the heart of the home is a spacious (40 square metres) open-plan kitchen/dining/living room with a high vaulted ceiling with recessed LED lights, raised inset feature fireplace and double-glazed doors opening out into the garden. This exceptionally large family living space also includes a brand new fitted kitchen with extensive floor and wall units fitted with butcher block timber worktops, stainless steel sink, tiled splashbacks and a complete range of integrated appliances.

All accommodation is laid out on a single floor, with three well-proportioned bedrooms, all with fitted floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and the main one with ensuite bathroom. Accommodation is completed by a family bathroom, entrance hall, a separate utility room off the kitchen with further fitted units and sink and a corridor connecting all rooms.

There are high-grade engineered laminate floors in all the main living areas, built-in wardrobes in all bedrooms and high quality sanitary ware, fittings, tiled floors and floor-to-ceiling wall tiling in all bathrooms.

Outside, the house is set on its own site (0.968 acre) bounded by new timber fencing and mature trees, enclosing freshly sown lawns and an extensive driveway with secure solid timber gate, providing parking space for several vehicles. The house is surrounded by a pathway on all sides, while it also has its own fresh water well with a separate outside pump house.

Set in scenic countryside, the house overlooks commands panoramic views of surrounding woods and fields.
