Full description:

With the most stunning views over Dunmanus Bay to the Beara Peninsula, this home measures approximately 2,700 sq ft (249 sq m) having been extensively renovated & extended under the guidance of John Verling - Architect.

Located off a minor public road and situated on 0.6 acres laid out mainly in lawn and bounded by mature trees, shrubs, flowering plants and a spectacular stream which runs the length of the land to a magnificent waterfall down to the sea.

The original residence is a bungalow which is self-contained and has three bedrooms - two with king beds and a twin with two 3'8 beds, two shower rooms, large eat-in kitchen, dining room with large window overlooking mountains. The living room has a panoramic window, french doors that walk out to a terrace that overlooks the coastline and also a fireplace. Utility Room has full sized washer/dryer, laundry sink and second shower room.

The annex stone house or second self-contained home is open concept layout. The kitchen is open to the dining room which comfortably seats six, ten if you borrow four chairs from the neighbours.

At every turn there are large windows which give you panoramic views of Dunmanus Bay. The living room has large couches and chairs. There is a stone fireplace which can make the home warm and cosy on the wild and windy nights.

The conservatory is built in an octangle and positioned to view the stream on the property or Dunmanus Bay with its boats and mussel beds.

Upstairs is a large bedroom with velux windows and another stone fireplace. The bathroom has a soaker tub, walk in shower, sink, toilet and velux windows.

There are a number of charming design touches throughout such as the use of natural slate floor throughout the ground floor of the stone cottage which has been sealed with a high-grade varnish and tongue & groove panelling. Both residences have natural slate roofs, high grade thermo paned windows and high-pressured water system.

This is an exceptionally well-appointed coastal property in close proximity to Durrus village where there are a number of public amenities. Cork International Airport approx. 80 mins drive.

Would ideally suit a large family or a couple who would like to live in one part and rent the other residence as although interconnected, they are quite separate and metered separately. It would also make a wonderful Bed & Breakfast.

About Charles McCarthy Estate Agents, West Cork

Established in business in Skibbereen for four generations, we are over forty years in estate agency and auctioneering. We handle all types of property residential, coastal, period, agricultural and commercial. Due to our unique ocean side location on the Gulf Stream, coastal and holiday properties form a substantial part of our business. We also specialise in period properties and we have successfully negotiated the sale of a number of major estates in recent years.
Properties featured range from new houses to period country property, coastal holiday homes to townhouses, waterfront hideaways to agricultural holdings all located within the South West of Ireland, from Clonakility to Mizen Head, including populated areas such as Skibbereen, Bantry, Rosscarbery, Union Hall, Glandore, Baltimore, Schull, Ballydehob, Glengarriff and much more.
West Cork is a place apart. It has a mild climate - an ideal place to rear a family. It is also very private with great beaches, shops, restaurants and pubs. The surrounding coastal villages are quaint and unspoilt, with a wide range of water sports readily available.
Overseas purchasers especially from the United Kingdom are continuing to be enticed to West Cork by the attractions of glorious sea views, rural tranquillity and greatly reduced prices. West Cork is almost a global brand, promoting its food, its relaxed way of life, walks and breath-taking vistas.
Apart from its indigenous strengths for local and Irish buyers, it has also had a draw for Europeans for several decades, and it's as multi-cultural a spot as you'll find anywhere on the island of Ireland.
Our offices are situated on Bridge Street in the town of Skibbereen the capital of West Cork, servicing a huge hinterland, from The Mizen Head to Rosscarbery in the east, from Baltimore to the south and Dunmanway to the north. It is also the service town for the inhabited islands of Sherkin, Heir and Cape Clear.
At Charles McCarthy, we are committed to providing you with all the information you will need to find a home in the tranquil and beautiful countryside that frames the south west coast of Ireland. We have the property to suit everyone from cottages to castles; our knowledge of the West Cork property market is second to none.
