An acre of land comes with this six-bedroom farmhouse that also includes four reception rooms, a kitchen and three bathrooms. There is a paddock and outbuildings including a stone barn, shed, workshops and stable. The house has a recorded history in the fight against tenant-farmer evictions in the early 1900s. In 1956 Minister for the Gaeltacht Richard Mulcahy recognised this when he awarded a blue plaque to the building. In the 1950s and 1960s the house accommodated Irish language students and later it operated as a B&B. BER: E2.

Plus: In a scenic location by the Derrynasaggart mountains and River Lee
Minus: It needs a refurb and warming up, note the low BER
