Sq m: 240 (2,600 sq ft)
BER rating: C2
Four acres of land, and a traditionallooking, sizeable and very fresh farmhouse dwelling with a few design twists are part of a package on offer about five miles west of Clonakilty in West Cork.
This 2,600 sq ft home, near the birthplace of Michael Collins and Sam’s Cross at Bealad, is called Pilgrims Rest and is a recent listing with Michéal Duggan of Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill; he guides at a pretty reasonable, €425,000 given the amount of space inside and out. Plus, alongside there’s a 1,000 sq ft garage, ideal for those into cars or DIY as it’s fitted out for workshop use, with secure roller shutter doors.
It’s quite broad and square, with space for two/three reception rooms (one can be a ground floor bedroom 5, next to a shower room) plus there’s a contemporary 22’ by 14’ kitchen, utility, and a sun room to the side off the kitchen/dining room.
Upstairs is equally generous (1,200 sq ft above, 1,400 sq ft below), with four bedrooms and two en suites.
There’s a fanlit front door opening to the central hall, protected by a slightly unusual porch with part-glazed and part-tiled roof and glass sides.
VERDICT: Roomy family buy, 10 minutes from Clon and an hour from Cork City.
