An extended farmhouse which has its own separate guest cottage right on the Sheep's Head presents plenty of opportunities

HOUSE OF THE WEEK Three-bed with guest cottage for €325k

AN extended farmhouse which has its own separate guest cottage right on the Sheep’s Head presents plenty of opportunities. 

The cottage could be an ideal way to maintain cordial relationships with relatives when they come to stay. It has three bedrooms and a separate living-kitchen-dining space – sure you’d hardly have to see each other at all! 

Alternatively, it would be a nice earner if you wanted to rent it out to holiday makers and there’s no shortage of those in this beautiful part of West Cork. 

Located at Kileen North, just off the famed Goat’s Path, it’s on the market with Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill for a not-too-offputting asking price of €325,000.  

The main house is a two-bed, with the master featuring a balcony to enjoy the spectacular sea views. An upstairs living room has been designed for the same purpose. 

There are also two separate sunrooms downstairs and plenty of traditional-type finishes throughout.

The house is set on two acres which are set out in patio areas and lawns, bordered by trees and some shrubs. There is also a sheltered courtyard patio/barbeque area which separates the main house from the guest annex to the rear of the property.
