THE SHAMROCK


We believe we found our perfect little house in Ireland...




...an old rundown cottage was turned into an amazing painter’s studio and vacation cottage...



Facade facing the plaza remains proportioned as it is, while an entire sidewall gets replaced by a large glass opening (stone reused for exterior stairs)...



Even though it looks quite small and tiny, we find it to be very beautiful and compact....




...the interior is treated like a ship's: stairs, kitchen and bath are as compact as possible and fitted together like a Chinese puzzle. Local materials and craftsmen are used for all the work.



...and we love the rustic character of the old stone barn...


This is such a beautiful renovation project...
