Enjoy the good life in Ballyferriter

THE good life beckons at Ballyferriter's Baile Bhoithín - the renovated farmhouse is on a mature and green half acre with its own veg patch, growing tunnel and copious amounts of fresh air.

Carrying a €330,000 price guide with Anthony Fitzgerald, a new selling agent in Dingle, he says it is in a private setting in the centre of this Gaeltacht peninsula area. Ballyferriter village is a couple of miles, Dingle town is seven miles, and beaches like Wine Strand as well as Dun an Oir golf course are nearby.

There's an attractive wood-framed greenhouse/sun room across the front of this c 1,300 sq ft house, and this warming spot is about 24' wide, beyond is a living room with solid fuel stove on a brick plinth with overhead crane, a kitchen with built-ins and a Stanley range, utility room, shelved pantry, and two first floor bedrooms plus bathroom.

And the half acre of grounds have a mature garden feel, small orchard area, lily pond, garage and boat house/workshop, plus a poly tunnel for early growing of veg and herbs.

Windows are double glazed, the roof is natural slate and there's a half door to the sun room.

There are electric storage heaters for background heating and the renovations have been done in an environmentally friendly way, says Mr Fitzgerald.
