UNIQUE doesn’t quite capture this stand-out property near Union Hall which includes a substantial house, a guest cottage and nothing less than an ancient castle in its €1.45m price tag.
There’s also private frontage to Castlehaven Harbour to boast of, if Raheen castle, once the home of the O’Donovan’s and complete with cannon balls lodged in its walls, isn’t enough to float your boat.
And there’s more – some 3.8 acres and a garage.
The main house is quite a substantial property at 1,730 sq ft home, with two first-floor bedrooms (oneen-suite), stone-built and slate roofed, with single-storey side wings and rear conservatory.
Accommodation comprises a main living room, kitchen/breakfast room, boot room, dining room and a sun room. It has been both restored and extended, with exceptional results. The courtyard is the location for the attractive three-bedroom (two ensuite) guest cottage.
The sale is being managed by Maeve McCarthy of Charles P McCarthy auctioneers in Skibbereen. Tel 028 21533; charlesmccarthy.com
