DescriptionMagnificently located residence with extensive access to Blind Harbour. This wonderful property boasts a shore side swimming pool, sandy beach, private slipway and two moorings.
This is a rare offering to the market and is without doubt one of the most delightfully located properties on the West Cork coastline situated in a most secluded cove. It enjoys superb full southern and eastern views over the harbour and coastline.
The property, originally a coastguard station, has since been extended and renovated and is in good condition throughout. Measuring just over 4,100 sq ft, it has its living area on the first floor to make the most of the uninterrupted sea views. The rooms are generous in their proportions with accommodation consisting of six bedrooms, two bathrooms, two shower rooms, two kitchens and a number of reception rooms.
Set on c. 0.8 acres, laid out in lawn with mature trees and shrubbery. There is ample parking with the large gravelled drive, attached carport and detached garage, which could also be used for storing boats and other such equipment.
The vibrant and popular villages of Union Hall and Glandore are a short distance away and Skibbereen market town with its host of further public amenities is approximately a 15-minute drive. By boat, there are many choices of coastal villages to visit including Castletownshend just a few minutes cruise. Cork City & Airport, c. 70km.
'Blind Harbour is a small sea inlet on the southwest coast of Ireland; it is approximately half a mile east of the mouth of Castletownshend harbour and two and half nautical miles west of Glandore. It offers an anchorage in a remote and sequestered location with excellent holding.'
