BLACKTHORN Lodge, just outside Skibbereen, is a delightful mix of personalities.
Its exterior suggests a period residence, a very charming one at that. But step inside the front door and you’ll be hit with a refreshingly modern vibe.
Located at Bunalun, 2.5 miles outside Skibbereen, and just off the main Bantry Road, the three-bed property is on the market for €240,000.
Coming with 0.3 acres, this is a quality property, finished to a very high standard.
Gardens are mature and tree-lined, with inspiring views of the countryside. There’s scope for competent gardeners to have some fun here, but equally for the non green-fingered, it’s a relatively low maintenance set-up.
Back inside, current owners have used a clever mix of colours and finishes to create a wonderful sense of space and light.
Every inch has been cleverly used and the house is definite proof that a property doesn’t have to be architect-designed to be something special.
As the judges in RTE’s Home of the Year might well say, there is definitely a ‘wow’ factor going on here. Painted floorboards and use of quirky wallpaper are stand-out features.
A modern bathroom is another highlight, with mosaic tiles and a feature bath; along with a cute sunroom off a galley kitchen. Bedrooms are spacious, with two reception rooms included in the line-up.
