A FARMHOUSE restored with meticulous attention to detail will pique the interest of diverse property hunters because of the many opportunities it offers thanks to its outhouses, adjoining apartment and garden space.  

The three-bed, two-bathroom house has a rural location at Ards Beg, some 10km outside Bantry and is new to the market with Hodnett Forde for €295,000. 

The two bed main house itself is charming and in pristine, walk in condition. 

An added and most welcome bonus is an adjoining one bed apartment which would work in a number of ways including a granny flat, guest accommodation or as a private rental, generating income. Another alternative, of course, is to merge it into the main home if family needs require it. 

Stand-out features include exposed beams; attractive stair case and classic tiles which combine to create an authentic farmhouse vibe.

The property sits on 1.7 acres of mature gardens with attractive adjoined stone outbuildings which offer great potential. There’s attractive stone paving; raised beds and impressive mountain views. 

Hodnett Forde, Emmet Square, Clonakilty are managing the sale. Tel 023 8833367,
