Every so often a rare gem comes on the market and here we are delighted to present this stunning Victorian stone cottage. It nestles on one acre of partially wooded land and it comes complete with the original sash windows that have been lovingly restored. There are very few buildings of such craftsmanship left on the Irish landscape and this one has been cherished by the owners family since being built.
The cottage has two rooms downstairs, one of which has been divided to create a bathroom. A quaint little staircase leads to two further rooms on the first floor, where the owner favours viewing the quality roof timbers, but the new owner may likely insulate and line them with boarding for winter comfort.
This cottage does need further work and is priced accordingly. It exudes charm & character and even enjoys the quirkiness of an ordnance survey bench mark chiselled on the north wall around the early 1900s. It would be an ideal purchase for anyone wishing to put their personal finishing touches to an idyllic country home, away from the hustle and bustle of mainstream traffic. It is truly rare for an opportunity to acquire such a wonderful property in such a prime location to arise.
The cottage has mains electricity, a septic tank and a dug well with pump. It has a piggery and hen house built to the same exacting standards as the main house and has later additions of a small pump house and a lean-to comprising a shed and scullery including a Rayburn cooker in need of repair.

This charming and secluded cottage is situated in a much sought-after location, just a short stroll from the historic village of Grange Con. The village sits between the majestic mountains of Wicklow and the expansive plains of Kildare. It has a church, a primary school, a Hall and two pubs.
It is also the location of the renowned Grange Con Stud and the residence of two prominent race horse trainers. Grange Con was a farm for the monks of Baltinglass Abbey in the middle ages, where they operated a corn-mill on the tiny river Griese that trickles through the village and just across the road from the cottage.
The location is only 48 km— (30 miles from the M50) 44 km-- (27 miles to Tallaght via the N81) Baltinglass 7 km-- 5miles, Naas 28 km (17 miles).
