THE experienced hand of serial renovators is evident at this Dromig, Skibbereen home.
New to market for a British couple who are now leaving Irish shores for sunnier climes, the updated c15 year-old house has a €350,000 guide with estate agent Pat Maguire. He sold it also last time around, and sings the praises of the work done by its owners since.
Best use is made of space, it is flooded with light, and everything is done to a uniformly high quality, he adds.
Apart from the main three-bed dormer home with stone lean-to kitchen annexe, there’s a two-bed guest cottage, plus a very good timber workshop, all on a landscaped acre site a few miles north of Skib heading towards Bantry.
Features include a wood-burning stove in the open plan living room with a feature glazed panel by a stairwell. There’s a bright sun room with French doors to a patio and lawns, a smart kitchen with sloping wood-panelled ceiling, oak floor and teak worktops, dining room, and ground floor bathroom, with three overhead dormer bedrooms with gable and Velux windows.
VERDICT: Tastily done all around, an at-ease in its skin good modern take on the west Cork farm cottage, and the separate guest studio is a bonus.
