A RESTORED and extended traditional farmhouse surrounded by breathtaking West Cork landscape is on the market for €395,000.

Hagal Farm, Coomleigh West, Bantry has been described as an ‘oasis of calm,’ nestled on the south slope of the Maughnaclea mountains, with views over the Mealagh valley and Bantry Bay in the distance. 

The house is the family home of a Dutch couple who settled in Bantry 37 years ago and raised their family there. 

The multi-function property is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and a large organic vegetable garden, as well as other unique features.

Set on over two acres, it comprises a traditional and fully restored farmhouse and a connected, yet fully independent, guest annex.

The main house contains three bedrooms, a studio/workshop space, a kitchen/dining room and a conservatory with a living vine which provides a crop of grapes each year.

The guest annex consists of three ensuite bedrooms, along with a dining/kitchen, a sauna, and a loft/ studio space, with breathtaking valley views. 

It’s a space that would be suitable for extended family living, an artist’s studio or a home business among other things. 

Currently run as a holiday home, it can accommodate up to 18 people altogether. Part of the house has been used for B&B and for health retreats and workshops in the past. 

A selling point of the property is its large number of out buildings and a large barbeque area.  

Bantry is located 13km away, with Kealkil the nearest village.
