Take a look inside this beautiful thatched roof cottage in Co Waterford. It’s the kind of fairytale home you dream about, yet ‘The Old Farmhouse’ of Sheskin was put the market for an affordable €219,000.
That makes it an absolute snip in our opinion. The two-bedroom detached cottage has undergone an extensive renovation over the past three years, with the owners paying special care to preserve many of the historic features whilst adding modern comforts.
The roof was professionally rethatched in 2014, using hardwearing Turkish Reed.
Throughout the home there is a strong feeling of tradition, with the original design of solid timber staircase, sash windows and solid fuel stove.
The cottage is situated in a beautiful area of the countryside, hidden away on a tranquil and peaceful cul de sac.
Nearby is the town of Cappoquin, which has the River Blackwater flowing through and is popular with Salmon and Trout fishermen and women.
Just four kilometres down the road is the picturesque and heritage town of Lismore boasting Lismore Castle.
The town features several handcrafted gift shops and weekend markets, making for a perfect weekend afternoon out.
In total the property includes half an acre of beautifully designed gardens, lawns and a vegetable plot, and restored stone outhouses. It was sold by daft.ie last year.
