Cleverly thought-out upgraded property blends old and new

Cleverly thought-out upgraded property blends old and new

The exterior of ‘Treetops’ at Maulyregan, near Clonakilty, with the large double garage in the background.

A RARE opportunity to acquire a luxurious lifestyle property, offering some fabulous accommodation on a generous 1.3-acre plot of land has arisen at Reenascreena, near Clonakilty.

‘Treetops’ has been cleverly thought out by its meticulous owners, who have upgraded and maintained this property over the years. The property blends a traditional Irish farmhouse with a super-stylish, substantial extension overlooking a large split-level plot of south-facing land. 

The views from this elevated perch are outstanding, yet the property feels very private and secluded. The sumptuous character filled accommodation extends to circa 2,450sqft and includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms, four reception rooms and a superb light-filled kitchen-living room. 

Complementing this is a ‘dream’ den for men – a double garage extending to 540sqft. Located about seven from bustling Clonakilty, four miles from historical Rosscarbery and just one and a half miles from Reenascreena, the peacefully-located property is also only 10 minutes’ drive from two Blue Flag beaches and an hour’s drive from Cork City and airport.

The property is approached via a stone wall, pillared entrance and gates. Liscannor stone used on the pillars, the outside of the extension and low-level retaining walls. There is a gravel stone entrance with plenty of room for parking. 

To the south of the house is a lovely lawn area with raised timber deck and hot tub, which is not working currently. To the south of that there is a paddock and this is surrounded by a wooded area. 

Up towards the house, there are raised steps up to a lovely sitting-out area in front of the house. There is a greenhouse on the upper level to the side of the property. 

To the rear of the house, there is an upper level, which would be ideal for growing vegetables. This area has a separate exit on to the road outside.

Water is by means of mains water from the local rural water scheme. The heating system is a dual one: oil-fired and a large multi-fuel stove in the sitting room that is also connected up to the heating system and solar panels providing hot water. BER rating is C2.

Integrated burglar alarm and CCTV camera systems are fitted.

The property is on the market at an asking price of €390,000 with Martin Kelleher Property, Clonakilty (023-8859111).
