PICS: Famous American Celeb Is Dramatically Revamping Irish Cottage In This County

Darragh Berry

We’re no construction experts but there’s nothing too cheap about revamping an old Irish cottage.

But that’s what this famous American celebrity is going tackling into.

Sex and the City star, Sarah Jessica Parker, (Carrie Bradshaw) is a regular resident to her wee home in Donegal but The Irish Independent has confirmed that the Parker is going under a dramatic renovation.

Situated on the outskirts of the Kilcar, the cottage was bought by her husband’s (Matthew Broderick) family in the 70s.

They are looking to give it a modern look and are putting extensions on boths sides giving it: four bedrooms, a den, living area, a new kitchen complete with courtyard linking the old and new designs.

The planning application states: “This cottage and outbuildings belongs to a family with a residence in this place for more than 40 years. The cottage has been kept with its surrounding outbuildings and ‘gardens’ and meadows around the house.

“They wish to continue this tradition from one generation to the next by conserving the original and upgrading the existing accommodation. The plan is to give a new lease of sustainable life to this home.”
