You don’t have to hide your young away in this West Cork property with extra space for a brood — even if it is called Cuckoo’s Nest, after some of that species habit of laying eggs in other birds’ nests. If you like it, you can simply buy it, lock, stock and basement.
Yep, there’s a basement with external access running along the entire southern elevation of this otherwise single story home, on a sloping site on a quiet road bend, and as well as the 1,550 sq ft house, there’s a 200 sq ft workshop, plus an even larger garage and car-port.
Cuckoo’s Nest is inland, near Kealkil with a panorama or rural views to the south, and mature tree boundaries behind. It has one of its three bedrooms en suite, while the living room is a decent 16’ by 15’, with double-aspect south and west views. The kitchen, just left of the entry hall, has southerly views over countryside and distant forestry. The wooded setting is also heather strewn and scented, with Kealkil three miles away, and Bantry and the sea 10 or 15 minutes way by car.
VERDICT: Cuckoo’s Nest has a rural setting, and lots of space for hobbyists, home workers and families.
