Architect designed home with panoramic sea views
The contemporary single storey house faces south, providing sweeping Atlantic views from Power Head in the east towards Roches Point at the mouth of Cork Harbour in the west. Most rooms enjoy these views. The orientation of the house allows natural light to flood the building throughout the day, complemented by high (2.8m) ceilings and large double glazed windows along the front aspect. Flooring is at one level throughout in solid American white oak, apart from the Jerusalem limestone hall and tiled shower room/utility areas. Accommodation comprises three double bedrooms (one ensuite), main bathroom, utility/toilet and large open-plan kitchen cum living room (c.50m²). A number of patio/french doors gives access to several areas in the garden for sitting/dining purposes. Zoned radiator central heating is via an oil fired system augmented (if desired) by an open fireplace with back boiler.
Built in 2002, the 142m² house sits some 49m above sea level on a sloping site of c.0.3 hectares. Its rural setting provides great privacy without feeling remote. The mature garden has a wide variety of seaside appropriate planting including hawthorn, fuchsia, pine, ash, beech, cherry and oak plus many grasses. For ease of maintenance much of the garden is set in lawn and gravel. The grounds easily provide parking for several cars, in addition to the garage of 46m². As the insulated garage is attached to the house, it could easily be converted to provide additional living accommodation if desired.
