Pied-à-terre in popular west Cork

NOT a bad time to buy a pied-à-terre in west Cork. For those with agoraphobia — how about a tidy townhouse in Skibbereen for €180,000?

Number 21, Cork Road, is a three-bed, end-of-terrace house just a walk to the centre of town and a short commute to the coast. And it comes with a lovely, big, back garden over two levels, which gives that rus-in-urbs feel to the house.

The lower level has a patio and shed, and the upper level is lawn, with plenty of scope for keen gardeners.

There’s a small living room of 13’ by 13’ to the front, with wood burning stove, and, at the back, a big kitchen/ dining room with a bank of units and a door to the garden.

Overhead, there are three bedrooms with main bathroom, and, outside, there’s a boiler house and WC.
