Full description:

Absolutely charming traditional-style farmhouse, dating back to the turn of the last century, this home has been lovingly renovated and modernised. The resulting property is comfortable and spacious with full double-height ceilings in part and offers much to those wishing to live in a period property in a peaceful and private location.

The farmhouse is positioned on a south-facing hill, in a rural location and is accessed via a tree-lined avenue, making it ideal for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of busy modern living. It is within very easy commuting distance of Kinsale, Bandon, Innishannon, Cork city and airport etc and is a short ten minute drive from the coast with beaches at Howe Strand, Coolmaine, Harbour View, Garrettstown etc. The villages of Ballinspittle, Ballinadee and Kilbrittain are all equal distance from the property.

The modernised farmhouse has remained faithful to its original exterior appearance with some modern touches such as a balcony from the upstairs bedroom. The internal layout has changed and now comprises open plan living/dining room which are double height right up to the roof, with exposed beams. This opens to the kitchen which is an original lean-to extension, again with full height ceiling. The kitchen area is flooded with natural light from Velux windows. There are two bedrooms downstairs and the bathroom which is very spacious with free-standing roll top bath and large shower. The master bedroom is upstairs and has a mezzanine sitting area overlooking the living room and French doors to the large decked balcony on the front of the house.

There are many attractive features throughout the property including exposed stone combined with lime rendered rough plaster walls, exposed roof beams, salvaged doors and bathroom fittings all working to give great character to the house.

The grounds extend to 2 acres and include a lawn area to the front and side, a meadow to the south of the lawn making it ideal for vegetable/fruit growing and there are the original farm outbuildings. These are in varying states of repair with one large modern shed in excellent condition and older stone buildings which offer huge potential to a purchaser.

Heating is oil fired and there is a stove in the living room.
