Peaceful by the beach in West Cork

JUST a mile from Red Strand, this cottage at Lisduff, Castlefreke, Co Cork is ripe for a holiday home purchase.

It’s on the market with Ray O’Neill of Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill for offers in the region of €350,000 and should realise that sum easily as it’s in a prime seaside location. It has traditional looks, with its half dormer windows and slate roof.

“It’s in very good condition and has always been kept well. It’s very close to the beaches and it has great potential — it’s a gorgeous property,” says Ray.

The house has also had new windows installed and has a 0.7 acre, secluded site between Red Strand and Long Strand.

The gardens have also been well kept and the site includes mature trees and shrubs.

There is a kitchen to the front in the porch area, a living room and sitting room and overhead, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

And, there’s a stone built outhouse and garage which are attached to the house and offer the choice of expansion.

Additionally, it’s just an hour down the road from Cork city.
