Trading up: Burren, Kilbrittain, Cork - €450,000

THE theme song for the 1960s TV sitcom Green Acres had as its opening line “Green Acres is the place to be. Farm livin’ is the life for me. Land spreadin’ out so far and wide, Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.”

And, in the case of Green Acres, at Burren, Kilbrittain in Co Cork, you can add ‘coastline, spreadin’ out so far and wide,’ into the pitch also.

Listed for sale with estate agent Killian Lynch, this Green Acres is a five-bed dormer home, on two acres amid farm livin’ neighbours, hugging the shoreline of Courtmacsherry Bay.

It’s set out along the R600 Wild Atlantic Way — just a few kilometres from Timoleague and the Pink Elephant bar, easily reached too from Kinsale and Clonakilty as well as also being close to Harbour View beach.

The five-bed, 2,300 sq ft home with three en-suites is backed up by a stand-alone guest apartment, of some 500 sq ft, with two en-suite bedrooms.

Mr Lynch says Green Acres is all in mint condition, and was built in 2005, with clear scope for guest business/airbnb etc, and even effectively has its own beach at high tides across the road.

VERDICT: Arnold Ziffel would surely approve.
