Guiding €425,000-€450,000, the property comprises a very attractive period house and outbuildings on approximately 3.8 acres in Rosscarbery.

The is the first sale of the historic property previously owned by Edward Barry, a prominent political figure who was an MP for Cork South from 1892-1910 and sat in the British House of Commons.

The residence, Rathbarry House, is a five-bay, two-storey building thought to be built around 1850.

Extending to around 2,352 sq ft, stand-out features include 13ft high ceilings, ceiling cornicing, feature fireplaces, oak staircase and double glazed sash windows.

Ground floor accommodation includes living, dining and breakfast rooms, along with kitchen. The five bedrooms are on the first floor.
