HOUSE OF THE WEEK Three-bed near Schull for €695,000
BY EMMA CONNOLLY
HOUSE titles surely don’t come more reassuringly named than The Fortress.
And the solid looking stone house, located at Foilnamuck, between Schull and Ballydehob, won’t disappoint on viewing, either.
The imposing, yet still welcoming, building, is on the market with Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill with an asking price of €695,000.
It’s a three-bed, three-bath, three-storey, covering 360sqm, and set on 2.3 acres.
Features include tile and timber floors, interior stone walls, and an oil-fired Aga in the bespoke kitchen.
The second floor includes a reception room to avail of glorious views that can be enjoyed over Roaring Water Bay.
A glimpse of Jeremy Irons’ Kilcoe Castle are also on offer.
The third floor is a large attic space which would be easily transformed to additional sleeping and living accommodation.
Grounds are well planted, with the added bonus of a detached garage and a stable block.
