Way out west, follow the trail to a horse lover’s dream home

ON THE trail of the lonesome pine? Try Pine Hill, to be exact, where there are horse trails aplenty and a mini-stud to go with them.

What’s on offer is a crossover property, in more ways than one.

Pine Hill at Clashbredane townland is a traditional farmhouse on five acres of land. It comes with full, modern equestrian facilities, including an indoor and outdoor arena, and a not insignificant collection of seven stables.

Then there’s the planning permission for a second, big stone house, in this high-demand area (it’s just off the N22 Macroom road), and this accessibility gives it another dimension entirely.

This many-faceted property package is under offer and is drawing interest from various quarters.

There are those who are looking for the ideal country hobby farm, and others who are just looking for a site, says Killian Lynch of SWS Property Services, Macroom.

He’s given a guide of €600,000 for the entire five-acre holding and has an offer of €500,000 already.

There is the possibility of selling the property in lots; the house site and some land in one, and the house and facilities in the second.

The old farmhouse is in very good condition and has been modernised, but in a country way.

Included is a hand-built elm kitchen with beamed ceiling and Stanley stove, a living room, a sitting room, one ensuite bedroom and two further rooms, along with a main bathroom and WC.

The outbuildings are smashing for anyone with an interest in horses, and are worth quite a bit, not least in having them all in the one place.

The property is a mile-and-a-half from Tarelton village, 10 minutes drive from Macroom, and just a half hour’s commute to Cork city.
