The Old Storehouse is an amazing period waterfront property built in c. 1780 and located in walking distance to Ballydehob village, yet offering plenty of privacy. Originally built and used as a corn-store by a local trader it was later converted into a beautiful home oozing with character. The house stretches all along the pier and sits on approx. 0.33 acre of land partly laid to lawn. It is divided into two parts, the main house (approx. 230 sqm) and an independent guest unit (approx. 80 sqm). There is also a studio on site (approx. 27 sqm). The main house offers a large living room with vaulted ceiling and open fireplace, a dining room, kitchen, a gallery library as well as five bedrooms (one currently used as a study) and two bathrooms (one being a Jack-and-Jill to the master bedroom). The guest house offers a kitchen cum diner, a living room with a stove, a bedroom with bathroom en-suite as well as a gallery, which could be used as a another bedroom. A large south facing terrace area right on the waterfront runs right in front of house and can be accessed from either the living room or the master bedroom. From the terrace one has the most amazing views across Ballydehob Harbour. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and wrap around the western side of the house. There is also a conservatory with an open fireplace as well as raised fruit/vegetable beds. The studio has a stove and would be ideal for a painter/artist. There is plenty of parking in front of the house.
