Scenery and solitude

A BUYER looking to head west to graze a few animals, grow some vegetables and gaze at the scenery probably couldn’t find a more suitable property than this one at Coomnakilla near Kenmare.

The timber-framed homestead comes with 62 acres of land and has stables, a large polytunnel and views of the McGillycuddy Reeks. Guiding at €200,000, the house has around 1,100 sq ft of accommodation, including a kitchen/dining room, a utility room, a sitting room, a bathroom and three bedrooms including one with an en suite. To the front of the house there’s a large conservatory which opens out on to an area of timber decking.

Selling agents DSL auctioneers say it has an insulated iron clad roof, oil central heating and double glazed windows. Outside there are lawned gardens with mature trees and plants, stone walls and wild flowers as well as a gravel area and a large pond. To the rear there’s a large polytunnel and a large stable building. The current owners grow a variety of vegetables and have horses, chickens and a dog.

Outside of the garden area around the house, there’s a large expanse of rough grazing land. Located two miles from Templenoe pier the property is one mile from Blackwater village and seven miles from Kenmare. It will suit a buyer looking for scenery and a little bit of self sufficiency.
