A TRADITIONAL Irish farmhouse dating all the way back to the 1800s that comes with 25 acres presents glorious opportunities to anyone with some imagination. 

The property, 5km from Ballydehob and 8km from Schull, is fresh on the market with James Lyons O’Keeffe and is already attracting plenty of interest due to its potential. 

Copper Pines at Ballycummisk, Ballydehob has an asking price of €700,000 and would suit a hobby farmer, anyone looking for a foray in agri-tourism, or could be converted to a writers’ retreat. 

The location couldn’t be more perfect for any of the above – it’s nestled snugly among trees, it’s overlooking Rossbrin Castle and Rossbrin Cove, and has access on foot to those waters by way of a rugged laneway. It’s also almost in the middle of two hugely popular locations – the bustling town of Schull with its top class schools, scenery and retail outlets. And on the other side, it’s just a few miles from the foodie hub of Ballydehob.

The small holding itself is oozing charm. 

The main house is in good condition and there’s also a selection of stone outbuildings which could be converted for a variety of uses.
