It’ll take some imagination and bit of elbow grease.
However, if you’ve always dreamed of spending your summers lazing in your very own seaside property, this could be the investment for you.
This tiny two-bedroom house in the seaside town of Courtmacsherry was put on the market this week… and it could be yours for less than the price of a deposit on a new build.
While it’s not for the faint hearted (the house is constructed with corrugated walls and roof) at €49,000, it is located just 500 metres from Broad Strand beach and a 1.5km stroll from the pubs and restaurants of Courtmacsherry village.
The views of the sea are stunning and the surrounding 0.28 acre site offers plenty of room for storing kayaks, surfboards and fishing rods.
The good news is the property, currently listed by Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill West Cork, is serviced by electricity, mains water and a septic tank on site.
If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, you could turn it into a cute summer home – imagine the barbecues.
Now, where did we put that hammock?
