Ever dreamed of staying in a charming little Irish cottage? Here’s you’re chance! This white house with a red iron roof is a holiday rental. It’s set in the remote lakeside town of Treangarrive in County Kerry, “lost within a wilderness of emerald green farmland and cloud-shrouded mountains.” Take a look!
What was once a humble refuge for local mountain goats has been turned into a dreamy vacation home.
The listing says:
New Larch roof timbers were foraged from the forest behind the cottage. The mud floor was stripped back and lime rendered, dressed with furnishings crafted from local Douglas Fir.
“White-washed minimalist interiors offer a stylishly simple shelter from the elements.”
“Watching the morning sun awaken the valley is simply awe-inspiring.”
“The seat beside the fire is the best for witnessing dramatic cloudscapes and moon shadows whip over Caragh lake.”
The cottage has two bedrooms and one bath.
Children and “two well-behaved dogs” are welcome here.
There’s a newer addition built onto the other side with a more modern master bedroom:
Wake up to views of the lake and mountains through the floor-to-ceiling windows:
The house sits on 85 private acres in Treangarriv.
“Step onto the Kerry Way right from the doorstep and see how far your legs will take you along the 200km walk which loops around the Iveragh Peninsula through some of Ireland’s most dramatic countryside. Those wanting a wild and windswept adventure can ride along the water’s edge of Rossbeigh beach on horseback, or cycle the Muckross trail through Killarney National Park.”
“On balmy days, visit Coumeenoole beach made famous by the film Ryan’s Daughter.”
Does anyone remember that movie starring Robert Mitchum and Christopher Jones?
Such a picturesque setting on the lake. And I love the red roof!
