A quite exceptional contemporary home nestled within some 60 acres, majestically positioned overlooking Dunmore Bay and including a private island. 3 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and an indoor pool. Panoramic sea views extend to Loop Head Lighthouse and across the bay to Kerry Head and the Slieve Mish Mountains. Pleasantly remote privacy is paramount and the views uninterrupted. Twilight and evening vistas are quite striking, benefitting from such a unique waterfront position. A land bridge links the island and there is a small beach within the private bay. Built to exacting standards at great expense, the juxtaposition fusion of such striking architecture and design against such a wild and undisturbed position is extraordinary. Achieving building consent in such a position is exceedingly unique and an increasingly unlikely feat. The purposeful contemporary exterior design is remarkably fused with classical architectural influence within the interior. The classical design of ornately decorative ceiling cornices replete with gold gilding, a well-executed cantilever stone staircase with elegantly brass coated balustrades and the incorporation of original and exquisite Bossi chimneypieces blended with clean contemporary architectural design to present a truly unique and interesting home. The effect of such design fusion and the incredible rustic West of Ireland position is intoxicating and increasingly compelling with familiarity. A marked helicopter pad allows air access in addition to both sea and road access from a gravelled laneway off the public road. Nearby Kilbaha Bay Harbour is just a 5 min-drive and has deep water mooring, two pubs and a restaurant. Attractive Carrigaholt village [17-min drive] also has a harbour and village amenities, while the bustling towns of Kilkee and Kilrush are each about a 30-min drive. By boat Carrigaholt and Ballybunion, in Kerry across the bay, can be readily accessed. For air access both Farranfore Airport is nearby and Shannon International Airport easily accessible. From the gravelled laneway electric security gates lead along a tarmacadam asphalt drive through an inner electric barrier gate into a secure parking courtyard, with integral garaging. A pillared portico leads to the front door and entrance foyer, which leads to a pleasant oval shaped reception hall. This leads to the stair hall, a cloakroom with WC and the magnificent reception room, a spectacular room designed in the Great Room tradition. It occupies the entire south facing coastal front elevation and includes living, dining and kitchen spaces. East and west patio spaces, to either end, link seamlessly. The stair hall extends over three floors and features a remarkable cantilever stone staircase and accesses a glass elevator lift. A study on the upper floor accesses a large roof terrace and links to the rooftop reception room, both having glorious ocean views. The pool room on the lower level opens out onto a large patio terrace and is augmented by a luxurious 'Champagne Room' and changing rooms. The master bedroom suite is on the ground floor and has magnificent sea views, a superb walk-in wardrobe and ensuite shower room. Two further bedroom suites on the lower floor open onto patio terraces and are augmented by a private guest bedroom suite within the enclosed courtyard. It has a bedroom, shower room and kitchenette and framed sea views through a picture window within the courtyard brick wall. The courtyard can be accessed directly from the house, the south patio terrace or the parking courtyard. It includes a delightful curve-fronted garden room, a lily pond and rose beds. The integral garaging can accommodate up to four cars and link to a fuel store and into the axial hall linking to the stair hall, elevator lift and kitchen. An adjacent room to the kitchen serves as a laundry and back kitchen. For additional information, including a �walk-through� video contact Selling Agent David Ashmore.
