€185,000 old-world country cottage the ‘perfect hideaway’

Quinn Property has for sale what it describes as a “charming old-world country style cottage” in a most scenic area on a circa 1.2 acre-mature site for sale in County Wicklow.

This cottage is in a “popular and sought-after” rural area in the heart of County Wicklow, in Preban, Aughrim.

With a guide price of €185,000, the property is 6km from two attractive local villages, namely Aughrim and Tinahely.

According to the selling agent, Aughrim has a good range of shops, services, and amenities as well as primary school.

Besides, the property is less than an hour’s drive from South County Dublin.

“This charming property is the perfect ‘hideaway’ and an ideal family home.” the selling agent commented.


Dating back to the mid-1800s, the house initially comprised of two semi-detached cottages built by the Earls of Fitzwilliam.

These were subsequently integrated as one, with the present owner having upgraded and extended the property over the past number of years.

“The cottage retains many original features and oozes charm and character. Nestled in a mature and tranquil setting, it boasts a large garden with trees and water feature and enjoys stunning views of the surrounding rolling countryside.”

“The site itself is divided equally by a hardcore laneway with the cottage on circa 0.6-acres on the left-hand side and a workshop, with huge potential for a variety of uses, e.g. office, art studio, etc.) on c. 0.6-acres on the right-hand side, both with good road frontage.”
