Mountain views at corrugated cottage

Rose Martin profiles a 200-year-old home near Mitchelstown, Co Cork

IT’S the corrugated roof that will draw the sentimental buyer — that and the fact that this totally traditional cottage is in good habitable condition. Nearly 200 years old, Evergreen Cottage at Skeheen Upper, Mitchelstown, Co Cork, offers a bit of the good life, as well as stunning views onto the Galtees and the Knockmealdowns.

Ideal for walkers and get-away-from-it-allers, the house is a modernised three bed with good space and half an acre, four miles from Mitchelstown.

VERDICT: Ideal as a retirement home. The house is on offer though Michael Dorgan Auctioneers for offers in the region of €125,000.
