Beautifully refurbished stone cottage offers luxury and style

This outward appearance of this stunning stone cottage home at Caherdaly, Ardrahan belies the luxury and comfort of its modern, mint condition interior, beautifully refurbished by its owners.

Formerly known as Ardrahan Railway Station, O’Donnellan & Joyce are offering people the chance to own a piece of history at public auction this month, and get a peerless home for themselves in the bargain.

The Railway Station at Ardrahan first opened on September 15, 1869, and carried passengers for more than a century after that. The passenger part of the service closed down in April 1976, and the line shut altogether a few years later in June 1983.

Then, in 1992, this spacious cottage was converted into a home for the first time. Inside it retains all the charm of its past history, but with no evidence of wear, tear, or neglect. Extensive and tastefully conducted refurbishments have outfitted the house with high quality modern amenities that highlight, rather than overshadow, the history of the building.

Downstairs the entrance hall leads into a plush lounge oozing warmth from its brick stone fireplace with stove, and the parquet timber flooring. The large kitchen is also a perfect place for a family to gather and relax, with mint condition fittings, a tiled floor for easy cleaning, and above all, lots of space.

The remainder of the first floor consists of two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, one of which comes with a ensuite with shower. The tiled main bathroom is outfitted with both a bath and shower, and a window that lets in an abundance of light.

There’s lot’s more room upstairs, including two more double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and velux windows. A spindle staircase leads from here to the Mezzanine floor of the cottage.

The surprisingly spacious interior of the cottage is matched by an abundance of outdoor space on its 0.5 acre plot, just enough to appreciate, without being difficult to maintain. The large garden areas offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside, and the old railway line still running next to the house.

There’s no worry about being isolated either, as this home is located just off the M18 Galway-Limerick motorway, and with quick access to the M6 Galway-Dublin motorway. This makes getting in and out of Galway City, or travelling elsewhere in the country, a matter of ease.

This property will be going on sale by public auction at the Harbour Hotel, New Dock Road on July 24 at 12pm.
