If you are looking for a traditional cottage within easy reach of all of the beautiful hotspots of Co. Clare and at a reasonable price – have a look at Fushia Cottage. Its owner Dave brought it to my attention this week and it really is worth the spotlight. The restoration kept much of the old Irish Cottage charm while updating it with all of the necessary modern conveniences like an ensuite bathroom!
I love the kitchen area with its beautiful Belfast sink and large inviting hearth and solid fuel stove to warm up winter nights. The windows are the old deep reveals and the kinds you imagine with a single candle burning at christmas as in the old tradition. Tasteful elements are everywhere from the pine dresser to the wooden doors and handles and most importantly – the red half door. Apparently tennant farmers painted their doors red when their houses were fully paid off and owned so the tax collectors knew not to call on them any longer.
Fushia Cottage is a cute and cosy investment for anyone looking for a slower pace of life or a base to explore the stunning beaches and scenery of Co. Clare. From its infamous surfing, inspiring musical tradition and friendly locals – Clare is definatley one of my favourite counties to visit – and could be your ideal county to live!
