- Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
David Keane Property Services are delighted to bring to market this property which was stone built by Jeremiah J. Coffey & Son, Builders in approx. 1905 who were the builders of the Most Holy Rosary Church, Midleton. It is a beautifully restored Barn/Cow shed.
Sitting room was once a stable and the owners have kept the beautiful old stable door which leads from the sitting room to a small area between the sitting room and dining room. This area could be used as an office work area or for storage/pantry. There are double patio doors leading out to the back area.
Kitchen/Dining Room: Kitchen cabinets were hand crafted by a local cabinet maker. All appliances are included in the sale. Spot lighting.
Shower room/utility room: Contains shower, WC, sink and washing machine and dryer.
All downstairs area has ceramic tiles and underfloor heating together with exposed timber beams.
The walls are of the original stone brick.
The stair case leading upstairs is open and leads to quite a large landing which again has many uses.
There are four good size bedrooms with the owners having made a little offices space in one of the bedrooms, there is a separate W.C. upstairs which has double sinks. The flooring upstairs is of American oak and some of the ceilings are of pine and original roof trusses on view. Upstairs has electric wall panel heaters. There is also a door from one of bedrooms leading outside to a set of steps. This is a good fire exit but would need to be railed in from the outside as it would not be safe for children.
The outside of the property is mystical and filled with nooks and crannies as the viewer does not know what is coming next and there is so much to take in.
Facing the front of the house is a garden filled with shrubs and greenery and little paths. To the left of the house is a quite a large garden. This has vegetable plots and 4 large rainwater storage tank. There is a greenhouse and a cold frame. On another turn there is a wired in area for hens. The owners love nature and have kept the area as natural as possible. There are a number of apple trees, damsons, plumbs, comfrey, blackcurrants, strawberries and rhubarb. At the end of the garden there are 3 compost areas and a wild area for butterflies. There is an old derelict stone building with flagstones and which the owner commented could be used ''for Irish dancing''. There is a stone wall all around the back of the house which gives great shelter for sitting out entertaining.
Behind the house there is a large covered seating area "perfect for social distancing''. There are a number of stone outhouses/worksheds all have being lovingly restored and completely dry. Very suitable for a pottery studio, carpentry etc. The owner is meticulous in that the two of the buildings hold all his tools but everything is in perfect order.
The property is situate in Walstown Beg about 7 minutes drive to Midleton town. East Cork Golf Club is only ''one or two shots away''. Midleton Railway station only 6 mins drive away.
Lovely scenic walks. Would appeal to families and couples alike.
Great for someone working from home and has very good broadband reception.
Rarely does such a house come on the market. Country living on the outskirts of Midleton.
