Properties might suit Communities

Here is just one message on our noticeboard intended for messages about properties that might be suitable for communal living. Perhaps some kind of community was resident there in the past or you're an existing group who all want to leave at the same time, thereby vacating a property.
If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). We reserve the right to move the message to another category if it seems more appropriate.

Rural Retreat in west of Ireland

An EcoTourism Centre set in 55 acres of land in County Clare, Ireland, with staff housing and buildings to accommodate 40 guests and workshop activities. Currently run by a small community of owners and volunteers. We are retiring after 23 fabulous years of running the Boghill Centre. Our wish is that the centre will continue as an ethical retreat space and nature reserve with minimum impact on the earth. To this end it is our aim to attract new owners who will respect the journey that we have made and continue our holistic, environmental work. The business is a thriving activity venue, hostel and B&B, run on holistic, ethical principles and with a strong sustainable environment focus. Full diary for 12 months plus in advance. All the flexibly designed buildings are mostly situated on a 5 acre portion of the site. The remaining 50 acres offers scope to be utilized in many ways. For example, the organic kitchen garden and orchard could be expanded to a larger scale permaculture or forest garden project. There is an established team of dedicated and experienced part time workers who can, certainly in the interim, continue to contribute to the running of activities and allow a smooth transition. This includes a Housekeeper, a Caretaker and two experienced cooks who have generated the centre’s reputation for delicious healthy vegetarian meals catering for all special diets. For many years the centre has supported the WWOOF (World Wide Organisation for Organic Farming) association and hosted hundreds of “woofers” to help produce food from our organic garden, orchard and chicken compound. The Boghill Centre includes: Stone circle, wildlife ponds, two natural labyrinths and various cob buildings. Bog and wetland areas, newly planted woodland and grazing areas. The land boasts a seam of excellent clay which is dug and processed for the Ceramics Studio. A large organic garden, chicken coop, polytunnel, orchard, sweatlodge field, lawns and barbecue area. A ranch style hostel with commercial kitchen, dining room, large living room, five 4/6 bed dormitories each with associated bathrooms, office and small laundry. A large Octagon Hall - a flexible venue for workshops training and events with seating space for over 100 people. An Eco Hall - a smaller workshop space/therapy room with a wood gasification boiler room and a Ceramics Studio. Two chalet blocks of private bedrooms - 4 singles and 4 twin ensuite rooms. An eco build staff house up the road from the main complex, comprising two separate living spaces with shared porch entrance and sun deck. Each side of the house has separate living room, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms making it ideal for multiple families or friends sharing communal living and the running of the centre together. A selection of sheds, a cob house and a mobile home – currently used to accommodate Wwoofers. Business, property and land for sale outright or as part owner with another investor.
