This 829 sq ft home sits on an appealingly private site, set back off the R334 route as one approaches Cross from Headford. Access is via a small, traditional entrance porch/lobby, leading straight into the main reception room - a generous kitchen/dining/living room (21' 8" by 17' 1"). This area extends the full width of the house and has a wonderfully open feel thanks to the large windows. It is full of characterful touches including a generous storage area and cast-iron stove and an access to the property's back garden as well. A décor palette of neutral and earthy tones combined with natural wood finishes and terracotta coloured floor tiles give this home an authentic, warm and welcoming ambience. A connecting door leads from the open plan living area to the rest of the accommodation which comprises three bedrooms including a master with ensuite and family bathroom. There is a stira attic stairs with floored attic space, offering additional storage.
This enchanting property sits on the R334 route as one approaches from Headford and is within walking distance of Cross village. Cross is just a four minute drive via the R346 to the tourist Mecca of Cong and Ashford Castle while the cosmopolitan city of Galway is just a 40 minute commute away.
Cross has a fascinating history that can be traced back to the seventh century as well as strong mythological associations. The pretty village was a favourite childhood holiday spot for the writer Oscar Wilde and his family. Today it boasts a good range of amenities including a national school, a church, pubs and a shop with a wider, more eclectic offering in the neighbouring towns of Cong and Ballinrobe, both of which are within an 11-minute drive. Ireland West Airport Knock is just a 50-minute commute from Woodlawn Cottage.
This Cross cottage is likely to appeal to a wide variety of purchasers and early viewing is highly recommended. Property Partners Emma Gill strives to be ultra-flexible around property viewings.
