CHALETS are usually associated with mountainy Alps but a property near Ballydehob boasts one charming enough to inspire spontaneous yodeling – although goats are optional.
This four-bed contemporary residence is nestled deep in the panoramic countryside that West Cork is famous for.
Rathulla House located down a private perch, off a cul-de-sac at Derrycarhoon. That’s just off the main Ballydehob to Bantry road (N71) around four miles north of Ballydehob village itself.
It’s on the market for €375,000, and as well as the cute chalet (currently being used as an office, but with potential to be developed as accommodation) it also comes with a polytunnel and annex all located on a mature, attractively planted 2.5 acre.
Combined, it’s an attractive package: a bright, modern interior, landscaped gardens with pond and stream, with panoramic countryside views in a private location.
Accommodation comprises an open plan living/ dining room and sun lounge.
Exposed beams and wooden floors and a painted wooden kitchen are stand-out internal features but it’s the views, space and activities it affords that will most likely clinch this deal.
