The property

Ballymahon 1.5 miles A beautifully-presented, detached stone cottage located in the rural townland of Toome, just 1.5 miles from the quaint village of Ballymahon, County Longford.

Furnished with charm and style, this Ballymahon cottage is rich in character features, boasting sash windows with blackout blinds, exposed beams and brickwork throughout, as well as a wonderful claw-legged bath.

The open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area is perfect for socialising; the kitchen/dining area is adorned with a warming woodburning stove housed in a grand feature fireplace, although a separate second sitting room incorporating an open fire, antique furniture and a selection of books serves as an ideal reading room, or simply as a quieter area to relax and reflect on your Irish adventure thus far.

Just off the kitchen, a delightful sun room enjoys enchanting far-reaching rural views, thanks to this Ballymahon cottage's raised position, and overlooks the expansive rear, lawned garden where a glass of wine can be savoured while sheltered under the leafy canopy of the trees.

The village of Ballymahon acts as a gateway to this beautiful, but undiscovered region of Ireland's midlands with its lively towns, quaint villages, renowned angling destinations and wonderful scenic views.

Just three miles away from this Ballymahon cottage is the village of Abbeyshrule, which has won Ireland's Tidy Town contest, and there are 8 golf courses within easy driving distance.
