Detached two-bay single storey cottage sits on scenic Sea Road
THE COTTAGE ARKLOW HOME PLACED ON NATIONAL INVENTORY OF ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE
‘THE COTTAGE’ occupies an unrivalled location on the Sea Road with a lovely east/west aspect.
‘The Cottage’ has been recognised as adding much to the character of the arterial entrance to Arklow and placed on the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage Reg. No. 16322084 and described as: ‘A detached two-bay single-storey house, built c.1915, with later extension to the east’.
The building is roughly rectangular in plan but with a canted bay to the west elevation, a recessed bay to the south-east corner, and a projection to the north-east.
The façade is finished rock-faced semicoursed granite with dressed granite quoins and brick dressings to the openings.
The slated overhanging hipped roof is in two distinct ’off set’ sections, and has a brick chimney stack. The entrance appears to be set within a recessed porch to the south-east corner.
The windows are largely flat-headed and have timber mullioned and transomed frames. To the east side of the south elevation there is a small ’eye brow’ window. The house has a roadside setting but is surrounded by a garden.
The property retains all of its original charm and features and offers the new owner the opportunity to restore it to its former glory.
