Reflecting the best of its surroundings, this ivy-adorned property in Caheragh, West Cork, is just about as idyllic a setting as you can get.

Tucked away in the countryside, on its own manicured plot, the Old Forge sits with nature at its door. 

Stone steps lead up to the front of the impressive property, whose red door, ivy wall and impressive double French doors immediately draw the eye. 

A spacious sitting room can be found inside, with a stone fireplace at its heart. A comfortable L-shaped couch sits to one side, offering plenty of room for visitors and family members to curl up together for a cosy night in. Wood flooring has been fitted in this room while painted white panelling lines the ceiling. 

The open-plan kitchen/dining room is a bright, airy room with plenty of light thanks to a large skylight above the oven. Neither counter space nor storage is an issue here and the room has plenty of cabinets to house utensils and crockery. 

A dining table with two benches stands in the centre, just in front of the double glass doors which allow morning sunshine to flood in. 

All five of the bedrooms have huge potential for conversion and can be personalised with paint and other such upgrades once new homeowners move in. Both of the bathrooms have been fitted with modern showers. 

Outside, the property is an oasis of calm with a small traditional well another notable feature. Conveniently located within reach of Caheragh Village on the main Skibbereen to Bantry road, it’s secluded and yet still well-connected with a number of local amenities nearby. 

Currently on the market for €225,000, you can take a peek inside the Old Forge – which is on sale through Pat Maguire Properties – in our gallery below.
