THE value of multi-generational living became ever more apparent during the pandemic, when people were cut off from their loved ones for months on end.

It has sparked a demand for properties which can accommodate several generations of the same family, in separate houses. This allows lots of connectivity and support, but also the option to pull up the draw bridge and retreat when it’s needed too!

This property, new to market with Charles McCarthy, Skibbereen is ideal for such a way of living. Guiding €495,000 there’s a lot on offer for sure.

Located at Lissangle near Caheragh, it comprises a main house, a cottage and several out buildings and barns which could be easily converted for a variety of purposes.

The main house is a restored and extended period stone-built farmhouse. Accommodation consists of kitchen, dining room and living room on the ground floor with three bedrooms and two ensuite on the first floor.

Connected to the main house via an entrance porch is a self-contained guest cottage with kitchen/dining, living room and bathroom on ground floor and two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.

There’s an assortment of outbuildings including stables and a workshop.

This is all on a site of around six acres of good quality land laid out in two separate blocks.
