Bright and cheerful - that’s the butterfly-shaped bold yellow bungalow called An Feidhleachain, the lyrical-sounding Irish word for butterfly.
The detached house, home to a musician and conductor of lyrical note and with a grá for the Gaeilge, is just for sale, between Kinsale and Ballinhassig in Co Cork.
An easy commute, An Feidhleachain is on tended grounds of a third of an acre, at Ballynalouhy, Ballinhassig, and has its accommodation laid out in two mono-pitch roof wings, with lower central section, hence the butterfly link.
Estate agent Malcolm Tyrrell of Cohalan Dowingn guides at €250,000, and that puts it within reach of first-time buyers, traders-down, and relocaters. It also may come on the radar and under butterfly nets of employees at Eli Lilly, the Dunderrow pharma company which is currently recruiting after a 300m plant and buildings investment.
This ready-to-fly home has a book-lined living room, with garden and patio access for bird-song and the dawn chorus, a study, kitchen/ living room, and three beds, one en site, and a main bathroom.
The gardens include some decorative areas, landscaping and a pond, as well as a detached garage in a handy pitch.
VERDICT: Going for a song.
