Superbly restored and extended period farmhouse on c.2.5 acres.

A unique rural property with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside towards Mount Gabriel and Roaring Water Bay. In a peaceful rural setting, it is approached by a quiet country lane. The farmhouse (c.2,500sq.ft) is surrounded by mature gardens with stone walls, mature trees, a paddock and a field in which there is a Polytunnel, orchard and fruit enclosure. There is a charming courtyard with stone outhouses and raised stone flower beds.

The former milking parlour and pigsty have been superbly renovated to form a kitchen and studio and are linked to the main house by a wide, corridor which in itself is a space to relax in with a view of the courtyard.

The kitchen is truly a `farm house` kitchen with an AGA set in an exposed elm arch, custom built fitted solid wood kitchen, fitted appliances, Belfast sink and a stable door to the courtyard. The kitchen is very bright with light pouring in the long lantern window in the roof and three windows. There is a large dining area. Leading off the kitchen is a studio with separate entrance. This could be used as a playroom, work-room or even separated to form an office.

The living room has a recessed Charnwood wood burning stove, stained wooden floor and a door to the main garden. Off the living room is a cosy study, with its own fire place, lined from ceiling to floor with shelves. There is another spacious office with wooden floor. Also on the ground floor is a utility room, with a new condensing boiler, Belfast sink, counter tops and shelving. Beside yet another door to the main garden is a WC.

The studio, kitchen and corridor have underfloor heating.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and the main bathroom with separate shower cubicle. All the upstairs rooms have vaulted ceilings and beams. The guest bedroom has a door opening onto old stone steps leading to the garden. Reclaimed radiators have been used in the corridor and two of the bedrooms.

The main bedroom has French windows leading on to a large balcony with steps beside it. The views are panoramic, taking in Roaring Water Bay, Mount Gabriel and beyond. At night the light of the Fastnet lighthouse illuminates the room.

A staircase leads off the main bedroom down to the dressing room which has ample hanging space, drawers and shelves. Off this is a slatted floor with pebbled surround ensuite, tiled wet room, wc, wash hand basin with vanity unit and heated towel rail

The garden surrounding the house has been extremely well landscaped including, an enclosed courtyard with raised stone beds; large tree lined lawn with beds of mature shrubs, roses and a well stocked herbaceous border .

The immediate coast is dotted with many fine beaches and hidden coves

Located c.5 miles from Skibbereen market town and just over c. 3 miles from Ballydehob which has a thriving year round community. Cork airport is just over 1 hour.
