HOUSE OF THE WEEK  South-facing & cosy modern home outside Skibb

A MODERN south-facing home, with stables, a lake, and 4.5 acres of six well-maintained paddocks, is on the market for €345,000.

The home, six miles from Skibbereen, is a four-bed two-bath with equestrian facilities which would be perfect for horse lovers, although the size and expanse of the home makes it a very adaptable property.

Located in the townland of Derryclough, it is within easy driving distance of both Clonakilty and Bantry. The house is in excellent condition throughout and is fully double glazed and well insulated. Solar tubes have been recently added and there is a condenser boiler, bringing the BER rating to a very impressive B3.

There is also a fully fitted wooden kitchen, an Aga gas/electric Masterchef range, and top quality appliances. The kitchen has slate and wood flooring.

The sitting room has a stove and wooden flooring, and double doors to a sunroom. There is also a utility room with sink, with an adjacent and tiled WC. There is also a small study area off the utility room which also doubles up as the fourth bedroom.

The three upstairs bedrooms also have wooden floors and there is a family bathroom on this level, too.

Outside, there is a large detached garage with electric roller doors, and an open attic space for storage.

There is a landscaped garden to the front with flowers, shrubs and mature trees, leading to the large lake which can be viewed from the house and is fed from a private well which provides a constant flow of water.

Four of the six paddocks have their own field shelters and the other two have access to shelter. There are three stables, and a mare and foal box with rubber flooring. There is also a barn, a sand manége and there are also aviaries for fowl. There is also a heated dog/cat run.
