Coastal living at a good price

AT the guide price of €450,000 to €500,000, this 19-acre farm in the millionaire belt of Church Cross, Skibbereen, looks a bit of a bargain.

With views over Roaring Water Bay, the farm is close to other properties which have hit the million-plus mark in the last two years.

Located close to Skibbereen (by road) and Baltimore (by sea), the farm at Lissaree has top-quality lands, and it’s low-lying and sheltered, says selling agent John Hodnett of SWS Property Services.

On the road to Turk Head, (near where former Taoiseach Jack Lynch had a holiday home), the property is also close to Cunnamore Pier, the embarkation point for Heir Island.

There’s plenty to do for the boating, fishing, swimming set, and the property also has development potential.

“Coastal farms like this are always in good demand. The location and size of this property means it could offer an opportunity for development of one house, subject to planning permission,” said Mr Hodnett. And, even if it doesn’t, it would make a very worthwhile investment.
