SALE OF FORMER DURRUS NATIONAL SCHOOL AT DURRUS, THE SHEEPS HEAD, WEST CORK.
At the riverside junction between St. James Church grounds and the New National School sits this unique former school property. The building consists of two former classrooms with high pitch ceilings, both in excess of 400 sq ft, and enjoying independent fireplaces. To the rear are independent washrooms and store areas. Improvements in recent times saw the installation of night storage heating and some pvc double glazed windows. There is mains water supply and private sewage treatment. Phone line and broadband are also available. Quite apart from the potential to re-develop as a private home the property also lends itself as a commercial or cottage industry centre. The road presence & proximity to Durrus Village may really suit specialist enterprise. This is a unique offering in a beautiful setting!
St. James School was built in 1937 and was built in Ard Deco style. The Church of Ireland Diocesan Magazine of September 1937 records the opening of the school. The children and their teachers have taken possession of their new school, the first of its kind in the new Free State from a new improved plan. The building serves its plan admirably. It has modern lighting, sanitation and an abundant supply of water. Two play sheds have been erected for the convenience of the children. LICENCE NUMBER:- 002952
