3 rural homes in Co Cork on sale for €175,000 and under

From an elegant farmhouse to a period home that’s ripe for refurbishment, these three houses all come in at a reasonable price.

Sometimes when scouring property websites, you can find some real gems in rural locations. As these places are not in demand, homes that would be snapped up elsewhere can be on offer at very good prices, so it’s always worth having a scroll. 

These three homes show the kind of thing that can be found, even in a relatively popular county like Cork. All could do with varying degrees of work to bring them up to date, but they would undoubtedly make beautiful homes, ones that you would be able to tailor to your own style. Full of character, they’re also guaranteed to be unique.

Camaderry, Rylane, €160,000

rural homes in Co Cork

This detached Victorian home has plenty of period features inside, including a marble and slate fire surround, panelled doors and the entrance hall tiles. The house could definitely benefit from refurbishment, especially in the kitchen where there is a hodgepodge of units, but with three bedrooms, it has the potential to become a well-sized family home. 

The nearby village provides nearby amenities, while Cork city is just 35 minutes’ drive away. 

Reenroe, Drimoleague, €175,000

rural homes in Co Cork

This elegant three-bed farmhouse sits on over 2 acres of land on an elevated site, with views looking out to the Caha Mountains. Inside, although a new owner may want to make some aesthetic changes, the house is in good condition.

It also provides easy access to West Cork’s beautiful coastline, while the popular town of Skibbereen is just a ten minute drive. 

Coolbawn Farmhouse, Drimoleague, €140,000

rural homes in Co Cork

This farmhouse, also located close to Skibbereen, needs a lot more work than the previous one, although it undoubtedly has great potential. Some rooms are in relatively good condition, while others will need substantial work. 

It currently has two bedrooms, although a renovation would provide the opportunity to reconfigure, and possibly extend, subject to planning permission.
