This dreamy cottage in Skibbereen, West Cork is on the market for €349,000

Escape to the countryside with this beautifully refurbished cottage in the West Cork countryside

Fancy yourself a change of lifestyle? Maybe some open fields, starry nights, perhaps even a chicken coop and veggie patch in the back? This gorgeous stone cottage, just downstream of Skibbereen in West Cork, boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms and comes in at a sizeable 107 square metres for €325,000.

Laid out all on one level with views of the surrounding countryside, entering through the cosy conservatory extension that doubles as a front hallway and secondary living room with a beautiful floor-to-ceiling picture window overlooking the Cok countryside and a Stanley stove.

It has a utility and guest bathroom room just off it before you come into the open-plan kitchen diner. The bright Shaker country-style kitchen is painted in a friendly mint green, with an island and custom unit surrounding a stone-clad fireplace and range. French doors lead to the garden and there’s ample space for a dining and seating area too.

With a central hallway working as an axis for the rest of the rooms, there’s a large family bathroom with a bath and a hot press, as well as a brightly lit sitting room. It boasts a fireplace and two windows with rural views of the fields beyond. 

Two double bedrooms face onto the garden. The larger of the two rooms has its own French doors onto the patio. All the windows are double-glazed and has oil-fired central heating as well as the Standley stove so it will be as comfortable in the winter as it is in the summer.

Set in 0.6 acres, the grounds have a series of patios and paths bordered by mature trees and bedding. There’s also a derelict stone building that could make for a dreamy spare bedroom or garden office or studio.
