DUE now an auction sale on October 20 is the former priest’s house at Castletownshend in west Cork.

Taggart Park is on 2.5 acres and is being sold via a bank. The premises had been bought with an eye to its development potential. As it stands, it is a bit of a fine local period home on great grounds, with country, village and coastal views.

Apart from private residential use, it may suit as a guesthouse or restaurant, and in time its land may provide sites for some more houses.

Joint agents Charles P McCarthy and Dominic Daly say that, apart from the main five bed period home, there’s a guest apartment above the adjoining boathouse/garage.
