The Barn, Clogheenduane, Ballinhassig, Co Cork, T12 RP8H

€450,000 - Asking Price For Sale by Private Treaty 163 sqm approx


‘The Barn’ is a charming three/four bedroom country home lovingly restored to an exceptionally high standard by its current owners.

The original structure was built as a cottage in the late 1800’s and over the years was extended and converted to a barn to house animals . In the 1950’s an upper story was added and this was used to facilitate a local butter cottage industry.

In 2007, the building was stripped back to the bare walls and a costly and loving restoration project began. A timber framed shell interior was built inside the outer stone walls. All external and internal wall and ceiling cavities were insulated with Rockwool insulation making it an exceptionally warm and energy efficient house which is reflected in the BER report. In fact, the addition of Solar panels would make this an A rated property.

The house is roofed using Spanish natural slate which will last a lifetime. The slate window sills throughout are exceptionally deep reflecting the depth of the walls and the heat efficiency of the property.

The interesting intricate vaulted ceilings throughout the upstairs rooms capture the ‘barn’ atmosphere maintaining an authentic rural ambience.

Located only 10 minutes drive from Bishopstown and 2km off the R607 (road from Halfway to Kinsale ), ‘The Barn’ enjoys easy access to Cork city, the south ring road network, all Cork hospitals, schools and third level educational institutions. The local primary school is a five minute drive from the property and is adjacent to the local church. Ireland’s gourmet capital, Kinsale, is also on its doorstep and the area offers an exceptional range of local and social amenities.

A stunning home internally, ‘The Barn’ is equally impressive outside, a private landscaped garden and a fully fenced, well maintained, landscaped c2 acre grass paddock beyond. There is also a stable in place for the horse lover in the family.

This is a truly beautiful home for anyone looking for the perfect combination of modernity and olde world charm.
