Even the name is storybook-perfect.
If you’re looking for a property from which to base your West Cork fairytale, Sleepy Hollow could be the ideal spot to start the next chapter.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom period farmhouse in Lowertown, Schull has just hit the market at €795,000, and it includes a gorgeous guest house for the many visitors you can expect come summer.
Nestled on around 1.5 acres of picturesque land, the property has been restored and extended, with a Belfast sink, window shutters and sympathetic use of slate floors, and tongue and groove panelling throughout.
“There is a warmth and comfortable atmosphere in this home, which features three spacious bedrooms.” say the estate agents at Charles McCarthy.
“A most wonderful addition to the original farmhouse is the living/dining room with double height ceiling and roof lights bringing in a sense of space and light. It also takes advantage of the glorious views over the garden.
“Adjacent to the main residence is the detached one-bedroom guest cottage (circa 26.6 sqm/286 sq ft) with ensuite shower room. It provides an enchanting and intimate retreat for visitors or a perfect opportunity for a WFH space.”
Surrounded by lush gardens with a stream running through, the property is bursting with a variety of plants, flowers, and mature trees.
“Positioned between the charming villages of Schull and Goleen, this residence offers the perfect location blend of rural tranquillity, village vibrancy, and coastal proximity.” add the agents.
“Within a few minutes’ drive of Schull harbour town, with delightful local shops, restaurants, and pubs and with Ballyrisode Beach only 10 minutes’ drive and Crewe Bay just a short hop over the road, you can find yourself at the stunning West Cork coastlines in no time, inviting you to embark on memorable seaside adventures.”
