This is a rare opportunity to acquire a magnificent period property and outbuildings on approximately 3.8 acres in the much sought after West Cork location of Rosscarbery.

Rathbarry is a stately five-bay two-storey detached residence thought to be built c.1850. It’s most famous resident and owner was Edward Barry, a prominent political figure who was an MP for Cork South from 1892-1910 and sat in the British House of Commons.

Newmills is a very convenient location in West Cork, only 5 minutes from Rosscarbery Town Centre and less than 10 minutes to Clonakilty Town Centre. The area is one of outstanding beauty with many natural amenities close by including the Blue Flag beaches of The Warren, Long Strand and Owenahincha.

The house itself stands proud at the top of a sweeping driveway flanked by lawn areas and outbuildings. The complex of outbuildings were built by skilled stonemasons at a similar time to the main house.

The residence itself extends to approximately 218.56 sq. m (2,352 sq. ft). It retains it’s impressive period charm and features throughout including 13ft high ceilings, ceiling cornicing, feature fireplaces, oak staircase and double glazed sash windows.

The living accommodation is bright and spacious with well-proportioned rooms many overlooking the mature grounds. On the ground floor there is a bright entrance Porch, Hallway, Living Room, Dining Room, Breakfast Room, Kitchen and WC. There are five bedrooms, bathroom and hp overhead.

The property benefits from direct water access to the Owenhincha River which forms a natural boundary for a large section of the property.

We highly recommend viewing Rathbarry to appreciate the history of the property and to visualise it’s future.
