On the bright side

This thatched Clashmore home is on the market for €360,000.

EAST Cork and West Waterford probably still hold the best stock of original old thatched homes, and this Clashmore home in that border hinterland can hold its reeded head up with the best of them.

Quaintly pretty on the outside, it is a bigger and brighter bet than you’d expect on the inside, thanks to a rear extension with windows larger than you’d normally find in an old thatch.

Estate agent Property Partners Burke Wall seek offers around €360,000 for The Thatch, a three-bed cottage on a quarter- acre site, with the bonus of a detached cut stone building behind with conversion potential.

The Thatch itself has three bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, a 28’ by 17’ sitting room and a compact kitchen. It is just 10 minutes from Youghal, 35 from Cork city and 50 minutes from Waterford.
