Full description:

Nestled on the inner reaches of Dunmanus Bay, less than 1 mile from Durrus village, Murreagh House is a gem of a property. Set back from the main road, this most private residence is located towards the end of a secluded lane.

With panoramic views over Dunmanus Bay, taking in both the Sheep's Head and Mizen peninsulas, the vista is truly spectacular with the ruggedness of the scenic topography framing the coastline. It is a particular view that can only be enjoyed from the water or a handful of residences, Murreagh House being one of the privileged few.

Set on circa 2 acres of well landscaped gardens which are exceptionally well planted and laid out with a mixture of lawn, flowering plants and shrubs with the western boundary running through a copse.

There are two separate kitchen gardens and a green house. Although not currently in use, they have been well laid out and will prove as bountiful as before due to West Cork's temperate climate courteous of The Gulf Stream.

The residence measures approximately 2,000 sq. ft. The principal reception rooms are bright and modern with the living/dining room taking particular advantage of the wonderful coastal view. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 en-suites and 1 family bathroom. There is also a spacious garage and separate office which is accessed from the rear of the property.

Dunmanus Bay is an area of particular scenic beauty and the foreshore is only 200 meters from the property where one can engage in a number of water pursuits.

Durrus is a quaint village on the Wild Atlantic Way renowned for restaurants such as Blairs Cove and acting as a gateway to the Sheep's Head Peninsula. There is also a shop, café, pubs as well as national schools located here. Bantry (market town) is less than 15 mins drive where there are a host of public amenities, as well as being famed for its literary and chamber music festivals during the Summer months. Cork International airport is approximately 70 minutes' drive.

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.
