DescriptionIsland House enjoys a most exceptional coastal aspect. In a unique and private location, its panoramic views take in Rabbit Island in the foreground, and magnificent ocean and coastline views stretching from Toe Head in the west to Galley Head in the east.
The residence (c. 2,600 sq ft) was constructed in 1970 and was restored & extended in 2008, taking full advantage of its spectacular location. The living/dining room and kitchen are on the first floor enjoying the magnificent outlook, where you also have an office and wc. On the ground floor, there are five bedrooms (master ensuite), bathroom and a wonderful conservatory with large windows taking in the ocean views to the front and east.
Features include the wrap-around balcony, an oak staircase, fully fitted kitchen with granite worktop and a magnificent floor mosaic on the first floor entry hall, dedicated to Joshua Slocum, the first man to sail solo around the world in 1893.
Outside, the property benefits from a timber framed stable block, which can house 4 animals and a detached store/workshop. It sits on circa 5 acres of mostly good agricultural land and would make an ideal smallholding.
Within easy reach of a number of coves and beaches and located just 2.5 miles south-west of Union Hall which is a popular fishing and holiday village on the West Cork coast.
Skibbereen (market town) is approx. 20 mins' drive, where you can find a host of public amenities including secondary schools, banks, supermarkets etc. Cork City & Airport, c. 90 mins' drive.
