Steeped in history, Inishbeag cottage has had many an envious eye pass over it through the years. 

Built in 1848, the stone cottages are the epitome of rustic charm. 

The allotment has 1400 square metres of space and two distinctive homes, so you can toy with the options to your hearts content.

The original rear stone cottage could be your permanent abode, and for the front cottage you could choose to operate a B&B or make it your studio if you are into artistic pursuits.

Either way, the ambience, the sheer romance of such stunning cottages will sustain you for many years.

A sturdy build of sandstone and bluestone in parts, the polished timber floorboards, tongue and groove timber ceilings, stone fireplaces and open fires are a sheer delight. 

Beautifully maintained and adapted for comfortable 21st century living, there is a cosy living room, and formal dining with open fire place. 

The kitchen features a French Chombard double sink, new Jotul woodheater, and new electric stove. 

Outdoors there is a paved rear courtyard, and a leafy cottage garden just waiting for the next enthusiastic green thumb to arrive.

Robust enough to withstand a normal family life, the home has endured and prospered, and will continue to do so with the next loving owners.

Located within sight of the highway, and a few minutes to Port Fairy Bay beach, this property is a peach. 

Phone the agent for an appointment to view, and allow plenty of time to appreciate all its history and charisma.
