Moat Cottage, Creggs, Co. Galway


Cottage House

For Sale



43 sq.m.
1.50 acres


Moat Cottage is a romantic two bed cottage on c. 1.5 acres of land outside the Village of Creggs, Co. Galway. The positioning of this wonderful traditional Irish cottage optimises the striking views of the surrounding countryside and landscape. Built in the 1920's, Moat Cottage was purchased as a derelict building before the current owners commenced full renovations from the ground up with the authenticity of the cottage kept in consideration. Overflowing with charm and character the works can be continued on to further extend if desired. The foundations are laid at the rear of the house and are ready to build a considerable extension of similar size to the cottage with pipe work in place. There is the addition of an insulated log cabin to the rear which will be included in the sale.

The Village of Creggs is a mere c. 5 km away with the towns of Glenamaddy and Williamstown c. 10 km and 13 km respectively. In the bordering county of Roscommon the towns of Castlerea and Roscommon County town are approximately 20 km making the location of this unique stone cottage idea for commuting to a range of areas for work, schools, shopping etc

Currently being resided in, the cottage has benefited from re-wiring, plumbing, and the addition of oil fired central heating and solid fuel stove with back boiler. The roof has been newly insulated and all ground works completed. All the stone work to the front and sides of the cottage has been professionally re-pointed with two beautiful stone pillars and wall to the front and 'Dutch' half-door side entrance. In essence all the heavy lifting has been done to date and the cottage can be extended with floor plans drawn up, which can be provided, or may suit a buyer who wishes to purchase a unique traditional building languishing peacefully on a large site in a very convenient location.

The addition of the c. 1.5 acres of land is desirable and ideal for those who may wish to grow their own vegetable or raise chickens or farmyard fowl along with goats, sheep or donkeys. The potential is not to be missed.

The living accommodation includes, open plan living/kitchen/dining room, new bathroom with all mod cons and two ample double bedrooms. The log cabin to the rear adds value and can be used for a variety of purposes as it is fully insulated. There is the addition of a shed to one side of the log cabin and the has the utility room with full electrics and plumbing installed.

A lot of work, thought and love has been poured into Moat Cottage to date. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the time, money and effort that pictures cannot convey.
