DescriptionSuperb detached 4 bed residence with coastal views on an elevated mature site of c. 1.27 acres.
The work of the highly regarded architect Tony Cohu is evident. Working with the vendors, they produced a very special residence with elevated views over the coast and peninsula, yet still offering total privacy. Accessed by a private gated entrance, the residence is designed to get maximum use of the natural daylight and enjoys the most spectacular evening sunsets.
On approaching the property, there is a spacious garage to the rear which is designed in a manner to easily convert to a home office or studio (ceiling height ranging from 8ft to 28ft).
On entering the heart of the ground floor, the focus is on the views, seashore to the south west and the beautiful mix of garden and wild mountain pasture to the south. The morning light warms the kitchen and living space and the evening light sits spectacularly atop of the Caha Mountains to the West.
The ground floor is further complimented by two bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. The first floor has a spacious and bright mezzanine area, master bedroom and another large bedroom which could also be used as a study or storage space.
The grounds feature lawn areas with excellent coastal vistas and a mixture of mature trees and shrubs. The patio area is a wonderful feature and there is ample parking space at the house and also on the entrance lane.
Durrus village is c. 4km, where you can find cafes, pubs, a shop and post office. Bantry (market town) is just under 15 minutes' drive where there are a host of further public amenities including a hospital, schools, restaurants and large supermarkets. Cork Airport c. 90 minutes' drive.
