Otterbank sits on a glorious setting on the Beara Peninsula, on some c.2.79ha(6.89acres) of landscaped gardens and coastline. A prime water front residence with far reaching views from all angles, a private quay, boatshed, decking area and cabana all add to lifestyle and scenic value of this very fine property. The shingled shoreline is wonderful for access to the water and to enjoy the water activities from.
This is a very special setting, enjoying complete privacy, while at one with nature. Otter Bank built in 2005, enjoys privacy but is also close to cultural, shopping and water sports along the coast line. Many famous personalities have favoured this quiet, peaceful, beautiful location in West Cork.
