HOUSE OF THE WEEK Three-bed at beauty spot for €395,000
RED Lodge occupies an enviable spot adjacent to Inchydoney’s award-winning blue flag beach.
Sitting on a sunny south west-facing site, this period residence has breath-taking views across the beach and is just 4km outside Clonakilty town.
The distinctive property, with its red walls, slate and chimney stack, is a familiar sight to the crowds that drive the causeway all year round.
The property was built around 1845, and served as the Quarry Master’s house for the building of the causeways to Inchydoney. The causeways were built as part of the famine relief projects which attempted to provide employment locally.
Set on grounds of approximately 0.6 acre, the house has been carefully renovated including being re-roofed in 2011 and extended into a house ideal for family living or as a holiday home.
Major upgrading works took place in 2017 with new central heating installed, all windows and external doors replaced, the cavity walls pumped for insulation while a new treatment plant was also installed.
Décor is tasteful and in keeping with the landscape. Downstairs includes an open plan living room with glorious sea views with all bedroom accommodation upstairs.
The sale of Red Lodge, guiding €395,000, is being managed by Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill, Clonakilty and Skibbereen. For more see sfon.ie or tel 023-8833995.
