Property Description

Fair Deal Property, Ireland’s Fastest Growing Estate Agency:

Are overjoyed to bring to you the enchanting Marblehill Cottage. Originally constructed in 1775 as part of the Marbelhill Estate by the de Burca’s and overlooking the enigmatic ruins of Marblehill House and its once vast estate, this is indeed a rare and finely polished gem which has been lovingly restored and transformed into a masterful blend of the old, the new and the completely inspired.

We are in the business of selling houses yet what we have here goes way beyond the normal realm of our profession.

On approach this dwelling gives rise to an emotional experience that at once warms the heart to what lies within; to live here must surely be to experience the soul of antiquity itself.

On arrival you are welcomed into the mature enclosed garden which is perfectly framed by the L shaped cottage with the aid of a series out buildings that together create an idyllic and sheltered enclave.

A fresh pebble stone walkway leads you to the main entrance which is surrounded with masterfully thick walls and picturesque dormer windows all of which are fully upgraded and finished in a modern sage palette with matching energy efficient front door.

This home has featured on RTE’s Home of the Year and it is easy to see why it was awarded a 9 out of 10.

It is a tour de force of contemporary elegance which has been wonderfully woven into its rich authentic heritage.

On arrival you are met with an entrance porch that is an exercise in luxurious opulence. Strikingly bold modernist tiling combines with oriental glazing and leather seating which sets the tone for what lies within; a wonderous blend of the contemporary and the authentic with an eclectic assortment of natural materials which ground the home fully in its historical roots.

The porch leads on to the first of two living areas with a stunning wood burning stove featuring exposed copper piping which runs along the ceiling joists to give an eye-catching chic industrial style.

This room leads on to a beautifully appointed snug featuring natural wood flooring, picture frame window which overlooks the rear garden along with a further wood burning stove. There is a second porch with wrap around glazing leading to an alternative front entrance which overlooks the front garden.

The finely tuned blend of the old and the new continues seamlessly into the kitchen diner which is simply a joy to behold.

Gloriously vaulted ceilings reveal the original 250 year old structural beams which are beautifully complimented with ancient bog oak which forms the structure for ultra modern light fixture.

The interplay of the old and new here is symbolic of the overall theme of this wonderfully considered home.

The centrepiece of the dining room is an antique Stanley range featuring exposed flue and a chimney breast which is entirely dressed in a dazzling natural copper finish.

A contemporary pale blue kitchen featuring polished concrete counter tops, Belfast sink and slate floor meet the perfect balance between the traditional and the modern.

The first of two stairwell leads from here up to the converted loft area. This is a wonderful addition to the cottage and features an abundance of natural light, new flooring and would make an ideal home office.

The upper floor is accessed through the main living area and features a wonderful collage of textured woods and elegant carpentry throughout.

The master bedroom is spacious and filled with light from numerous angles and features exposed beams, picturesque dormer window, along with a large dressing area. A beautifully framed hexagonal window looks out on to the landing and indicative of the sheer invention at play in this wonderful creation of a home.

As mentioned the house has appeared on Home of the Year, if there is a spin off series for Room of the Year then we suggest the family bathroom of this home will be a strong contender.

It difficult to see how it could have been designed any better. Perfectly pitched ceilings run through to a stunning picture frame window which seems to invite the whole garden within. Minimalist shower glazing, and free-standing bath with the cream de la cream of fixtures and fittings are complemented beautifully with a floating wood shelf that carries a stone carved sink and premium brass taps.

There is a second double bedroom which features many of the same features of the master bedroom including natural wood floors, exposed rafters and an abundance of natural light.

To the rear of the property is large garden space featuring, mature trees and hedgerows a Polytunnel along with a steel storage shed.

This is a truly enchanting home that delivers a spell binding fusion of the modern and the historical.

It is a home like no other and can never be reproduced and for that reason alone its true value goes way beyond what can be described by mere monetary means

If you are somebody who yearns for an emotional connection to your place of dwelling, for a home that is unique by all measure for which a comparable cannot be found then this may be the one that calls you home as its it most likely that upon your arrival at Marblehill Cottage that all other alternatives will simply vanish from the mind.

If this sounds like you then we will be delighted to hear from you and to help you in any way that we can.
