Launch a boat or stroll onto the sand and watch dolphins from your quaint cottage

A charming three-bedroom cottage which is situated in a position to enjoy panoramic views of Donegal Bay has come onto the property market. 

This detached home in Mountcharles on the banks of Murvagh comes with direct access to the local beach where boats can be launched. For those who like to leave their footprints in the sand the beach can be accessed on foot. Dolphins and other sea life can often be spotted from the cottage.

The quaint cottage is truly atmospheric featuring many reclaimed fixtures and fittings.

Approached through white wrought iron gates, Rock cottage is perched in an elevated position overlooking the bay. Built in 1998 by the current owner, the cottage offers spacious accommodation with a mixture of reclaimed quarry tiles and solid timber floors, vaulted ceilings in sitting room, dining room and primary bedroom, reclaimed internal timber doors, feature fireplaces, and extends to a comfortable 130 square metres with a southerly aspect.

The main living accommodation comprises a large dining area with feature AGA range and vaulted ceilings, steps down to a lower-level cosy sitting room with feature stove and double patio doors to the front and side garden. A well-equipped kitchen and utility room, located just off the dining area together with a twin bedroom, feature mezzanine level and a separate guest shower room. There are a further two bedrooms on the east wing. A twin with ensuite shower room and the primary bedroom with sitting area and ensuite bathroom.
