The Stone House is set in magical Rossbrin Cove with uninterrupted views South to South West across to 14th Century Rossbrin Castle and beyond to Carberry`s 100 Isles in Roaring Water Bay.

This is an exceptional property with professionally landscaped gardens surrounding the house and plenty of parking space for up to six cars at the top of the sweeping gravel driveway at the back of the property. Offering privacy, the house is a haven of peace and quiet whilst not being overlooked or isolated. This stunning house is conveniently located equidistant five miles drive to both Schull and Ballydehob to enjoy superb cafes, restaurants, pubs and stores. Other larger towns nearby are Skibbereen and Bantry.
The interiors of this house are notably stylish with a skilful interior designed palette of Farrow & Ball paintwork in every room. This combined with the coastal light that West Cork is renowned for allows the house to be light filled as the sun rises and sets bathing the principal rooms in sunlight all day and evening (even during the winter months). Three bathrooms (two ensuite) and a downstairs cloakroom are from C.P. Hart in London. The two South and South West local stone terraces (Liscannor) ensure dining al fresco overlooking the sea is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The overall sense is of a calm and pleasing residence New England style. To add more to this setting the loom from the Fastnet Lighthouse can be enjoyed on a starlit night from the house.
Each of the well-proportioned rooms flows into the next with a clever use of space affording the master bedroom suite on the ground floor to act as a private wing away from the other three bedrooms situated on the first floor. The present open plan layout of the well-equipped kitchen including a Rangemaster Professional + stove, pull out tall larder, dishwasher and plenty of storage can easily be adapted to be separate from the living area if need be. Every detail in the design and implementation of this house has taken full advantage of its magnificent aspect.
This area of Rossbrin Cove is a sought-after destination and considered to be one of the jewels in the crown of West Cork. Rarely do houses of this quality come on the market. This spectacular property offers an exceptional lifestyle opportunity with such close proximity to the water. An ideal spot to moor a boat in the bay and sail along the exceptional coastline or simply gaze across the sea whilst enjoying the call of the curlew or spot a friendly grey seal or the elusive otter.
