FOR SALE ~ COTTAGE ON VALENTIA ISLAND
A detached traditional cottage in need of full renovations and services to be connected set on a good sized plot of circa 0.568 of an acre. Originally there were two semi detached cottages and was made into one larger house. At the same time double glazed windows and external doors were installed along with radiators for oil heating, plus porch to front, and small extension to rear. The house has now been vacant for 8 years or more. On one part of the house there are two bedrooms on ground floor with living room with kitchen at rear and bathroom, plus a small loft room on first floor. At other end of the house there is a living room with open fire, plus 2 bedrooms and another loft room on the first floor. There is a pedestrian gate plus entrances on either side of the house which leads to the over grown plot at rear. No services are connected, however apparently the water pipe is outside on the roadway. Property may date back to the 1800s or 1900s.
The property is situated on a quiet cul de sac road with few neighbouring houses, it has water views of the Channel and the shore, the property is within walking distance to the shoreline and Knightstown is 2.8KM about 6 minute drive away.
Knightstown is steeped in history where the 8th Wonder of the World the Transatlantic Cable Company started from, the local Museum, the lighthouse and the Valentia Slate Quarry are some of the places to visit on the island. The car ferry is very popular linking the island to the mainland of Caherciveen and this is seasonal. Lots of walking and cycling routes and boat trips.
Once renovated the cottage would make a beautiful holiday home or permanent home.
