Made as bright inside as a traditional West Cork farmhouse can be without blitzing walls is this home near Bantry and Skibbereen, on a half acre.
Set off the N71 at Colomane East, with expansive rural views, this upgraded home also has a glass-roofed front sun room for even more daylight savouring. It’s all priced at 215,00 by estate agent Micheal Duggan of Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill in its re-opened Skibbereen office.
It’s a good, above-average size for its type, thanks to such extensions fore and aft (the stairs is in a rear return) and it also has a small run of old stone outbuildings, with mix of slate and corrugated roofs.
Mr Duggan says it has been carefully renovated into a comfortable family home with modern touches and resect for old features, is facing south, has oil heating, plus a multi-fuel stove in the old inglenook-style fireplace in the main living/dining room, which has a beamed ceiling and a wood floor.
The modern, clean kitchen has a breakfast area, and there’s more eating space options out in the quite large sun room, for the best of views.
There’s a rear study or bed five, four more beds upstairs, and two bathrooms, one at each level.
VERDICT: Simply done, not over-done, and peaceful setting.
