Yearning for life in the country?
If you’re keen to stretch your green fingers on land of your very own, this could be the property for you.
Raven’s Lodge is situated deep in Tooreenlahard, Ballingeary in Macroom, about an hour from Cork City.
Set on 24 acres of woodland and natural habitat (seriously; wild deer roam freely around the property), the place is awash with indigenous wildlife to survey from the covered veranda at the front of the lodge.
The best bit? It could all be yours for €129,000.
Anglers take note; the property (six acres in total) comes with shared access to the River Lee, so you could while away many an afternoon or evening on the water outside your own front door.
Imagine the peace and solitude…
Inside the open-plan interior is lined in wood, adding to the rustic lodge feel.
There are three bedrooms, a sitting room, a living room and a kitchen, where heating and hot water are provided by a wood burning Esse range.
As well as the bathroom, there’s also a utility room for storing all your gardening equipment and fishing gear.
Outside there’s a large lawn for rambling in the summer, with an abundance of trees and mature shrubs and a pretty pond.
It’s not too remote either; Ballingeary village nearby boasts a shop for everyday necessities and two pubs. The local park even has a community orchard.
