Property Overview

The Connacht Property Auction in partnership with Spencer Auctioneers.

Offered at bids over €85,000

A beautifully situated 2/3 bedroom detached cottage, set in an idyllic location on Ross Island. The property is in need of renovation and has 1.31 acres of lands with excellent coastal views and frontage. This lovely cottage provides the opportunity for future extensions as the land virtually surrounds the house.

The property faces south east, and is a charming traditional 2/3 bedroom cottage in need of complete renovation. The property benefits from excellent coastal views and is one of only a handful of houses on this lovely island. The site allows the opportunity and potential to extend, and with the orientation, the living accommodation could be configured to benefit from sunlight all day long. Originally constructed circa around 1900, the property has been extended to the rear to provide a spacious kitchen and bathroom. To the first floor there is full length room that could be converted to create additional living accommodation subject to necessary planning constraints.

THE LANDS: surround the property and then travel west right over the island down to the shore on the west and south. The lands extend to circa 11.5 acres and are divided into separate gardens with stone wall divisions. These lands provide a guaranteed of space and also provide the opportunity for extension or a place to keep livestock. The commonage is a 1/82nd undivided share of 11.82 acres of the Carrowroe North commonage which equates to circa 10.35 acres. Please see attached a copy of the maps for the lands owned outright and for sale.

The property is surrounded by lands that are enclosed by traditional stone walls with good council road frontage.

Building Energy Rating (BERs)

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
