A suitably tuneful bungalow in an ideal location

This affordable cottage-style house may seem like music to your ears, says Tommy Barker.

THE modest-seeming, and renovated, bungalow Glenbrook appears pitch-perfect — well, it’s packed with musical instruments at least.

Clearly its owners are musicians and music lovers, and one of its two reception rooms is best described as a music room, festooned with both real instruments as well as paintings and depictions of others.

Each room has a solid fuel stove, and other accommodation in the compact enough cottage-style bungalow includes kitchen/diner, utility, three bedrooms, shower room and washroom.

Selling agent is Pat Maguire Properties, who guide it at €160,000 and note that it is on a half acre site, with an attached garage which crops out at a sort of T-shape from the main house, helping to create a sheltered, gravelled patio space for sitting out at.

VERDICT: An affordable buy-into a west Cork location near Glandore, Union Hall, Skibbereen and Castletownshend.
