Donoughmore bungalow for €260,000

THIS simple bungalow at Kilmartin, Donoughmore, has a couple of attractive selling points. Firstly, it’s reduced in price from €400,000 to offers in excess of €260,000, and, secondly, it comes with 4.5 acres of land, enough for an alternative lifestyle, but within commuting distance of Cork city.

The three- to four-bed property is 12 miles from the city, and less to Blarney, and, while it needs a makeover, it has a low entry level. The sale includes a farmyard and hay shed that could suit a small holding or equestrian enterprise.

And there’s a separate entrance to the farmyard, with all of the land in one field.

The potential is there to create a really good property, says Sarah O’Keeffe, of Fleming Auctioneers, and she’s open to offers on this north Cork small holding.
