This 1950s country house on one acre is, say the selling agents, in good condition throughout and has three bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen, separate living /dining room, and a sitting room.

It has outbuildings, barns and yards, and can be purchased with an additional 22 acres of land if required, of which 12 acres are in forestry with a tax-free premium of €2,214 a year for approx five years, and 10 acres are in farmland. It has plenty of potential, either as a smallholding or, subject to planning, for conversion into extra accommodation.
