West Cork continues to have great attraction for people who want a life away from it all. With that in mind, a four-bedroom traditional farmhouse at Inchafune, Dunmanway, on three acres of excellent land would make the ideal holiday home or indeed a very sensible starter home.

With a guide of €195,000, the property is well within reach of both markets and offers very good value. Along with the farmhouse there is a lofted stone shed and a modern shed. For those who intend growing their own, there is a glass house and an orchard. The house, outbuildings and orchard occupy an acre, while the remainder of the ground is formed by an adjoining two-acre field.

The house is a traditional farmhouse with a two-storey extension to the rear, and it has bright and spacious rooms that enjoy a southerly aspect. Four good-sized bedrooms, a spacious living room, a kitchen/dining area and a bathroom make up the main accommodation, while circulation areas include a lobby and a first-floor landing. The house has oil-fired central heating and all windows are double-glazed.

The living room spans the entire length of the house with its solid timber floors, an open fireplace and two south-facing windows. The bedrooms are all double rooms, three are located to the front of the house with south-facing windows and one is located in the extension to the rear.

A lofted stone building in need of some repair is attached to the main dwelling. The property also includes a modern open-plan shed with a floor area of 2,500sqft. This would make an excellent workshop or warehouse. Services include a private well.

While any purchaser will wish to put his or her own stamp on the property, the house is ready to be occupied.
