A RENOVATED farmhouse that oozes charm and character located close to Skibbereen, is new to the market this week. 

The stylish three-bedroom, two-bathroom farmhouse is at Reenmurragh, Church Cross, Skibbereen and for its price tag of €350,000, it packs quite the punch. 

The vibe, inside and out, is one of idyllic rural living a la Greenacres style. Just perusing the brochure alone will have you reaching for your Barbour jacket and Hunter wellies!

A long driveway leads to the property which is surrounded by rolling hills and enjoys a certain seclusion while also having the advantage of being close to a town centre. 

Situated on a 3.6 acre site, the sale includes traditional stone outbuildings which can be used for a variety of purposes, depending on the new owner’s needs.

There’s also plenty of space for pursuits like vegetable growing, keeping hens or even a pony or two  – or the option is also there to let nature get on with things itself. 

Back inside, the finish is to a very high standard while still remaining true to its ‘country cottage’-type character. 

A gas fired Aga range is what you’d expect and yes, there is one, and there are plenty of other standout features, including exposed beams, black and white check tiles, a Belfast sink and distinctly charming utility room (with a laundry maid). 

The main bathroom also has a slightly Victorian vibe and the bath itself enjoys views of the panoramic countryside. 

Distant coastal views are also a feature of some rooms. 

The farmhouse has gas fired central heating, broadband and well water.
