Take 4 with stone frontage Cork

What: Restored and extended stone cottage on 1.5 acres Where: The Stone House, Gurranes North, Drimoleague, Co Cork

The Stone House is a beautifully restored and extended traditional farm cottage set on a sprawling 1.5-acre site in picturesque west Cork.

The three-bedroom detached property extends to 139sqm (1,500sq ft) in size and was originally built in 1885. The house has since undergone two transformations.

The owners took great care and attention in ensuring the cottage's period charm remained intact using a local stone and timber-beamed ceilings to integrate the newer portions of the house with the original building.

Inside, the kitchen features a cream tiled floor and timber units, while the living room has a real country feel courtesy of its solid timber floor, exposed stone walls, beamed ceiling and solid fuel stove.

Double doors lead from the living room through to the sunroom, which has a slate floor and French doors leading to the garden outside.

Moving upstairs, there are three bedrooms, with the master bedroom with its own dressing room and en suite bathroom.

The Stone House has an 18.6sqm (200sq ft) garage attached to the main house, as well as a detached store room and laundry room.

It has a BER rating of D2.

The 1.5 acres of grounds include wooded areas and private hideaways, and it even has its own fairy fort.

It is located five miles from Drimoleague village, 13 miles from the market town of Skibbereen and approximately an hour's drive from Cork Airport.
