DescriptionArd na Smól which translates as ‘The height of the thrushes' due to its elevated position, is a nod to the townland of Gloun na Smól ‘Valley of the Thrushes'. It is a well-situated detached residence enjoying an enviable position overlooking the surrounding undulating countryside, located on the outskirts of Skibbereen.
Approached by a private drive and set on 0.66 of an acre of exceptionally well landscaped ground. The gardens are a real feature of the property and have been kept in immaculate condition with a mixture of mature trees, flowering plants and rockery benefiting from the temperate West Cork climate. There is also a most private terrace and garden to the rear and side of the residence to enjoy both the morning and evening sun.
Accessed from a minor public road, the main residence was built just over forty years ago to an exceptionally high standard. Measuring approx. 159 sq. m (1,700 sq ft), to maximise the use of space, the living accommodation is spread over three floors and consists of 3 reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, sleeping accommodation of 5 bedrooms, shower room, guest WC and utility room. The attached garage with double teak doors completes the residence.
The convenient location of this residence should not be underestimated. Skibbereen (market town) is less than 3 km away and has a large selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and all public amenities.
Skibbereen 18-hole golf course is very nearby along with Lough Hyne Nature reserve and the wonderful sandy beaches of Tragumna and Tralispean all within a 10-minute drive. Cork International Airport is circa 80 mins drive.
