Ard na Mara, which translates from Gaelic as â€˜Sea Heights', is in an elevated position with a stunning coastal aspect over Bantry Bay framed by Hungry Hill and the Sugarloaf Mountains.
Originally built in 1995 and completely refurbished, this is a contemporary property designed with sophistication and character. The minimalist approach is deceptive and as you enter this property you are inevitably amazed by the sense of space and light that prevail throughout, with generous internal planning appropriate to the needs of modern family living.
There is a great sense of space and modern luxury afforded by the layout of this fine family home but it is also cosy thanks to a 17kw Charnwood multi-fuel stove and a high level of insulation.
Extending to approximately 2,300 sq ft (218 sq m), the open-plan living space incorporates the living/dining and kitchen area. The central island is the real showstopper in the room with its polished concrete worktop. There is a black Rayburn range, AEG appliances and fitted contemporary kitchen units with a utility room at the back. New double-glazed windows ensure that the scenery can be enjoyed from most rooms in the house.
On the ground floor, the accommodation extends to include three bedrooms with a master en-suite and a guest bathroom. Upstairs, there is a fourth bedroom with en-suite which can double as a study and a most wonderful mezzanine family room that overlooks the living room downstairs.
The outbuildings include a two storey annex, approx. 1,227 sq ft (114 sq m), which could be utilised as a garage or games room or as extra accommodation, subject to planning conditions. There is also a wood-clad workshop which is split into two areas, the workshop and an office, ideal for artists and craftspeople or for many other uses.
