Cottage in Delgany for €625,000
Split-level three-bedroom house with colourful garden beside golf club
One entire side of the house looks on to a lovingly cared-for garden through a series of windows and doors, and double-height ceilings maximise the light.
Jill Robertson, the late owner of the house, was a dedicated gardener – and it shows. The lawn slopes up past rockeries, terraced seating areas, a pond and colourful plants and trees. A small gate at the very top opens on to the practice fairway of the golf club; apparently there’s an unwritten licence allowing Bellevue Cottages homeowners – which once included the family of golfer Eamonn Darcy – to go directly on to it.
Number 6 Bellevue cottages, a 193sq m (2,083sq ft) three-bedroom house, is for sale by private treaty through Sherry FitzGerald for €625,000.
An elegantly furnished sittingroom opens to the left of the front hall of the house. It has a vaulted limed oak ceiling, a green marble fireplace with a carved timber surround, and French doors opening at the side on to the garden. To the right of the front hall is a double en suite bedroom.
The heart of the house is a large double-height open-plan living space. This is where the extension, designed by architect Martin Noone, begins. On the right is a smart pine kitchen with a glossy blue Aga in a tiled recessed space.
The living area across from the kitchen, warmed by a wood-burning stove as well as the Aga, and the garden room just above it overlook the garden. Four steps lead up to this garden room and the airy main bedroom which has a good-sized en-suite shower room. A short flight of stairs leads from here to a large under-eaves en suite.
There’s room for parking several cars at the front of the house.
Bellevue Cottages is near to Delgany village and a short drive off the M11.
