Room to roam at rural Ramhill

IF there’s anyone left in the country who can still afford the country lifestyle, and wants land for a few horses for the family, then Ramhill, Ballinacurra, near Midleton in east Cork might fit their requirements.

A fairly modern home, built about ten years ago and with 2,200 sq ft of living space, it is on offer with Midleton agent Miah McGrath of McCarthy and McGrath, for offers around €600,000 as an entire.

Also available in lots, he reckons it is best value if bought as an entire single lot, as the mix includes a long run of low old stone outbuildings off a bit to the right of the house, and paddocks with post and rail timber fencing.

The land is good quality, and as the outbuildings have separate access, there’s scope for development for other used in time, the auctioneer suggests.

The setting, two miles from Midleton town and a 20-minute spin to Cork city, is private and secluded, says Mr McGrath.

It has four bedrooms, with one en suite bathroom, good living space with oak units in the kitchen/dining room, and overall decor and maintenance levels are good, inside and out, say the agents, pitching it at those into horses, horticulture or hobby-farms.
