West Cork home with plenty of character
Four-bedroom house on three acres
Published 21/10/2011 | 05:00
This modern home has the look and character of a much older property, from the natural stone exterior and steeply pitched roofs to the welcoming interior that includes a farmhouse kitchen complete with Rayburn cast-iron cooker.
The light-filled ground floor is largely open plan with terracotta tiled floors and two sets of French doors bridging the divide between house and garden.
Accommodation opens from the porch and comprises the hall; large, fully fitted kitchen with central island, Belfast sink and integrated appliances; utility; guest cloakroom; conservatory; and lounge with open fireplace and pine floors. The landing has a study area and picture window. One of the four double bedrooms is self-contained with a shower room.
The master bedroom is en suite, while the antique-style fittings in the larger than average main bathroom include a roll-top bath.
Pros: Benefits from West Cork's tropical climate
Cons: Gardens require diligent maintenance
