Period Property for Sale in Co. Cork

Restored Period Farmhouse, Dromsullivan, Mealagh Valley, Bantry, Co. Cork
A 200 year old period property with commanding views of the unspoilt Mealagh Valley

This is a stunning example of a beautifully restored period Irish exposed stone farmhouse. This 200 year old period property occupies an enviable position with commanding views of the unspoilt Mealagh Valley.

The property is only a short drive to the popular harbour town of Bantry, with Cork City and Airport just under an hour away. The house has been lovingly restored to its original condition with special attention given to retaining many of its original features including double glazed hand crafted wood sash windows, slate roof, and exposed internal stone walls.

The expansive and versatile accommodation extends to approximately 2000 square feet and has been improved and maintained sympathetically to compliment the many original features to include the character beams, a beautiful staircase, and carefully pointed exposed stone walls.

There are two very large reception rooms, one being used as a dining room and the other used as a lounge. The beautiful bespoke kitchen/diner has wooden work surfaces and a good range of base units and shelving leads to a very useful utility room. The superb master bedroom suite has a quality Victoriana bathroom en suite and there are three further bedrooms and two more bathrooms and attic space.

Externally the grounds are equally appealing with fantastic mountain and valley views, lawns, trees, and shrubs, and a seating area. The garden has superb views all around as is stocked with numerous shrubs and native hardwood trees and beautiful Liscannor stone paving.

The Mealagh Valley is an area of unspoilt beauty where one can enjoy fishing, horse riding, and the walking trails of the Sheep’s Head Way in a landscape that changes from windswept mountain to deep woodland passing the megalithic tomb, Kealkil Stone Circle and various ancient standing stones along the way. The Valley has its own School and Community Centre which hosts classes such as computer training, yoga, darts, and lots of special social events like tea parties, dances, bingo nights.

Bantry: the past, present and future fuse in perfect unison in Bantry town which nestles at the head of the beautiful ancient Bantry Bay. With a history stretching back to Neolithic times when humans left their first imprints here in places like Kilnaruane just off the old Rope Walk through to the tumultuous times of the French Armada and Theobald Wolfe Tone now commemorated in permanent form on Wolfe Tone Square, through the frenetic commercial mackerel and pilchard fisheries of the 19th and early 20th centuries to the busy modern cosmopolitan town with its fusion of modern and traditional streetscapes, Bantry town offers delight for the senses.
