Dreaming of living large in Clonakilty?
If you’re on the hunt for a period property with plenty of space for surfboards, wetsuits and fishing gear, No. 16 Connolly Street might be the beginning of your West Cork fairytale.
The eight-bed, one bathroom terraced home has just hit the market at €395,000, representing a rare opportunity to own a palatial pad (or a perfectly placed B&B) in the middle of town, just minutes from Inchydoney Beach.
Inside you’ll find spacious rooms with high ceilings, benefitting from east and west light through the large double-glazed windows.
There are plenty of feature fire surrounds and attractive tiling to be salvaged (the house requires some sensitive restoration in order to retain and enhance the unique features of its original design) and it’s already connected to town services, with fibre broadband available.
The property is heated via a combination of oil-fired central heating, electric storage heaters and open fireplaces.
There’s plenty of space for a growing family inside; the floor area extends to around 2,550 sq. ft.
Ground floor accommodation includes an entrance hall, living room, sitting room, dining room and kitchen/utility, with a lounge, two double bedrooms and a large family bathroom on the first floor.
The second floor is laid out as five rooms with potential use for bedrooms, playrooms or office and storage space.
Out back, the grounds are laid out in a unique enclosed west facing garden peppered with mature trees and enclosed by beautiful old stone walls.
There is a large storage shed to the rear along with two further sheds off the main building, both of which could be modernised or converted into a workshop or studio.
