‘Stable’ family home one to ‘tack’ onto your wishlist

‘Stable’ family home one to ‘tack’ onto your wishlist

A unique selling point for this family home is, perhaps, the newly-built stable block with housing for two animals and a tack room.


A FIVE-bed family home with ample space inside and out has lots to tempt house hunters looking to put down new roots in 2018. 

Located at Ballyisland, just a short walk from the world famous Lough Hyne and just 6km from the bustling town centre of Skibbereen, it’s on the market with Hodnett Forde for  €365,000.

The house itself extends to 1,950sqft, while the grounds are spread over 1.35 acres and uniquely come with newly built equestrian facilities. 

Staying indoors, the house has a family friendly layout  – lots of well sized rooms, plenty of space and even more light courtesy of its southern aspect. 

A charming kitchen will be a big draw to potential buyers with an exposed stone wall, Aga and a flag stone floor. 

Exposed beams in the large reception room and a stove are other attractive features. 

The property is laid out with lawned gardens, storage sheds and a westerly facing patio area. 

But its unique selling point, perhaps, is the newly-built stable block with housing for two animals and a tack room. 

The site enjoys distant sea views from the upper floors and is sheltered by a selection of hardwood trees on the northern boundary.

The sale is managed by Hodnett Forde Property Services, Clonakilty, tel 023- 8833367. See
