The 1970s-built bungalow called Tranquillity is well-named, says estate agent Johanna Murphy, who has swapped her usual Cobh/East Cork property sales beat for this West Cork one-off.
Set on a more than generous site of 2.5 acres, and two miles out from Schull itself out the Durrus Road, it has panoramic views back to the the harbour at Schull, says Ms Murphy.
And, because of the acreage, apart from the existing detached home reached up a private incline and drive past a stream, there may well be scope for a second site, subject to planning, and the house can easily also be extended, again subject to planners’ approval.
Currently it has three bedrooms with one en suite, hall, sitting room with a fireplace, an open-plan kitchen/dining room, and a utility which connects to an attached garage.
Guided at €290,000, the house is quite bright and is in good overall condition.
Updating tweaks are all that’s needed, suggests Johanna Murphy, and she says it should appeal to a wide cross section, from holiday home hunters to retirees, as well as to those looking for a lifestyle property with garden options, boat storage space etc.
VERDICT: Schull’s a humming summer spot, backed up with strong community supports, shops, schools etc.
