CURATING the ‘perfect’ house has become quite the serious business, but the fun factor is alive and well in this Schull property, which is most refreshing.

Located in a quiet laneway off the sought-after Colla Road in Schull, No 5 The Break is just a five-minute walk from the village.

The three-bed wooden house is new to the market with James Lyons O’Keeffe with an asking price of €495,000.

There’s a charming and relaxed feel throughout the property and unless you’re Maria Bailey, the indoor swing will be a feature enjoyed by most people.

Other stand-out features include the polished concrete floors which are both stylish and practical – and a life-saver for concealing the dirt!

The kitchen and living area is well-sized and so, too, are the three bedrooms, and the master has its own balcony.

There’s decking and patio areas, as well as a useful storage shed outside, and while the house is conveniently located to the busy village, it still enjoys a high level of privacy due to clever planting.

The property’s somewhat ‘shabby chic’ vibe is slightly deceiving as it comes with a B2 BER rating and an air source heat pump heating system.
