Sherry FitzGerald is pleased to present an exciting property - The Boat House, Scilly, Kinsale - to the local and international Market. Kinsale, historically an important seaport, is now a much-sought-after place to live, with its abundance of fine restaurants, quirky cafes, shops, and its vibrant cultural life. The old fishing-village of Scilly is only five minutes' walk from the centre of Kinsale town itself.
This water-front property, perched on Scilly rock, looks directly over at the Kinsale Marina and enjoys unimpeded views of the inner harbour and its yacht Marina. The Boathouse, once the Old Yacht Club in the 1960's when the then Committee made what were originally two sturdy cottages into one premises, adding a large upper space for Club functions. When the Club outgrew the facilities and it was turned into a private home, the large 25' x 24' first floor space became an amazing living room with a wall of glass soaking in the elevated harbour views and a balcony from which to further enjoy the sense of being aboard ship. In addition, there are three to four bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms, a main bathroom, flagged kitchen, and entrance hall with open fireplace fashioned from nautical salvage, and snug area. The wood floors were salvaged from the old grain mill in the heart of the town, and add extra character to this fascinating dwelling.
Outside, there is a large veranda to the front, as well as the small balcony overhead. To the side is a small garden and parking for two cars with double gates leading to a fully enclosed yard with a rendered stone outhouse and laundry room.
The old fishing village of Scilly is only five minutes' walk from the centre of Kinsale town with its abundance of interests and pleasures. Kinsale itself is historically an important seaport and garrison town, latterly famous for its exemplary gourmet restaurants, with breath-taking views and a quirky old town centre. It also has the usual requirements for family living, with very good schools, both primary and secondary, and other amenities close by.
