Cosy and snug cottage

FIELD COTTAGE near Kilbrittain village in west Cork is a pretty pink property offering countryside views and rural tranquillity.

For an asking price of €167,500 it’s a well maintained two-bed home with half an acre of land. Selling agents Sherry FitzGerald Brennan Busteed say it was redecorated and upgraded around five years ago. “It’s cosy and snug with double-glazed windows, oil-fired heating, timber flooring and it also has a broadband connection and satellite TV”, says auctioneer David Busteed.

To the front there’s a timber-flooring sitting room with a fireplace and to the rear kitchen/dining room with fitted units, appliances and tiling in the kitchen and a timber floor and ceiling in the dining area. The property also has a shower room and two timber-floored bedrooms. Located at Maher’s Cross, two and a half miles from Kilbrittain, Field Cottage is nine miles from Kinsale and seven and a half miles from Bandon.

The owners are emigrating and are willing to include all the contents and furniture for the asking price. Mr Busteed says it offers good value for a young couple who want to settle in a country cottage.
