This 1910 period property schoolhouse is looking for a new lease of life as a family or holiday home. Whether you are looking to add a contemporary extension, or renovate this old property to your own style, it’s outstanding charm and character lends itself easily for a 3 bed+ residence of your dreams.
The traditional stone schoolhouse is set on 0.5 acres in North Cork, just outside of the village of Rockchapel, on the Limerick/Kerry borders, and within easy reach of Cork City, Limerick City and Kerry Airport.
The structure is a blank canvas of approximately 60 square metres, consisting of good stonework and the original slate roof. It has been out of use since the 1960s and is in need of comprehensive renovation. It would suit a builder, small scale developer or DIY enthusiast, as it offers endless private development opportunities (subject to planning) as a family or holiday home.
There are a host of old and original features and considerable potential for residential conversion (OPP) with extensive floor space and a variety of options for internal layout.
It is in a wonderful picturesque rural location with road frontage, beautiful mature hedgerows and trees, electricity and a well on site. It’s a hauntingly beautiful time capsule of Ireland’s school history, complete with original features and a single classroom with a dividing/folding door.
Whether you plan to live or work remotely here, or rent it out as a holiday or Airbnb let it will be a unique residential conversion that’s also suited for workshops, creative studio spaces or a home office.
