Sold €249,500 - Detached House
“ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY” to this beautifully and lovingly reconstructed 4-bedroom farmhouse situated in circa 2 acres of magnificent gardens, lawns and old stone features. Completely rebuilt and extended from the stone ruins of an earlier traditional farmhouse, this house boasts a BER rating of B3, the envy of many a modern house and testament to the quality and the standard of the work done and completed in 1998. Set in the most peaceful and scenic of settings yet still only 17 minutes from Macroom town and under an hour from Cork city, it takes this property out of the realms of fantasy and into the reality of either a downsizer’s dream or a very commutable home. Being in the country does not mean one has to forgo the basics of the internet or even mobile phone signal as this home has it all covered with wireless broadband throughout the house.
The attention to detail throughout this house and gardens results in one of the most desirable homes to come on the market in this area for some time and there is no better time to arrange a viewing than now.

Kitchen and Dining room area. 5.7m x 5.5m. Fully fitted kitchen with fitted appliances, tiled floor and separate dining area with three large windows offering plenty of light throughout.
Living room. 7.5m x 4.4m. Fitted and completed to the highest standards with large windows and a warm conservatory offering access to the gardens (or a heavenly place to have a coffee in the morning sunshine overlooking the gardens), the living room is set off with an understated traditional looking stone fireplace complete with a large Stanley solid fuel stove which heats the room comfortably on its own without the necessity of firing up the oil fired heating system. This is the place to read those books that you always promised yourself that you would. Peacefulness and comfort
Living Room 2. 4m x 3.8m. This room is the legacy to the original house. It is where life stories live on. Exposed stone walls, panelled lower walls and a stone fireplace, a warm cosy den where you can either hide away from the outside world or do battle on your games console with anybody from the other side of the world, your choice!
Master Bedroom. 4.3m x 4m. Warm, comfortable and well fitted with a more recently fabulously upgraded ensuite and with its own private stair access.

Gardens. Circa 2 acres. Where does one start? The amount of work, care and thought that has gone into creating this garden represents a lifetime of heart and soul. There is so much done with different slopes and levels, old stone outbuildings, streams babbling through to ponds and then open spaces and lawns but there is still so much opportunity to add your own style and features, believe me 2 acres is a large garden!! (Possible football area or pony??)
Large Garage. 6.6m x 3 m.
Head out the Millstreet road from Macroom to Carriganima. After Carriganima go over the bridge and take the next left. After 1.3 k turn right. Or just use google maps.:)
