IN the build-up to the property bubble, this farmhouse in Cloghroe had an asking price of €485,000. Today, it’s on the market at €275,000 — but there’s a reason other than market forces.
The property, on the main Cork/ Kanturk road, had a site of 0.75 acres. Now, it has had some of its grounds lopped off and has a smaller, manageable garden.
A wisteria-clad landmark close to Blair’s Inn, the property offers old world features in a simple, two-storey layout. It has a partial garage conversion, which could give the property commercial potential, as a surgery/clinic.
Inside, it comes with a sitting room, dining room/lounge, kitchen and drawing room, with three bedrooms and a bathroom overhead.
Rosemount comes with gas-fired heating and is just nine miles to Cork city, with Blarney, Tower and Ballincollig within a short drive.
