There is also plenty of room and potential for a polytunnel for green fingered buyers or anyone interested in pursuing self-sufficient living.
On the flip side, it’s a very manageable 11km (7 miles) or around 15 minutes’ drive from both Rosscarbery and Clonakilty – both of which boast restaurants, schools etc – and a comfortable 45 minutes drive from Cork Airport.
Extending to 295.2m (3177ft) this home, has been finished to an exceptionally high standard, having concrete floors and under-floor heating throughout.
Other features like geo-thermal heating and solar panels mean utility bills should not cost its new owners more than €50 a week.

Significantly it comes with the benefit of an adjoining two storey garage with electric doors, which can be accessed from the residence – a useful feature not to be underestimated. The downstairs accommodation line up comprises a spacious kitchen; large reception room; separate dining room; utility and wc.
Bound to impress viewers is its sunroom which enjoys inspiring views of the West Cork landscape.
Two of its four upstairs bedrooms are ensuite, with all four boasting ample floor and storage space.
To the front of the property there is a large driveway with space for four cars or more.
There’s lots to interest outdoor lovers with a spacious garden, vegetable patch and a chicken run. The agent is Hodnett Forde at Emmet Sq, Clonakilty; 023 8833367 or hodnettforde.com.
