This home in Kinsale harbour is on the market for €2.25 million

This home in Kinsale harbour is on the market for €2.25 million

As the only home in Kinsale town with direct water access, it’s bound to generate some interest.

If you want water views from your living room, you can’t get much better than this Kinsale home. Literally named Edgewater, it sits in Kinsale harbour with 180 degree views of the marina. 

A four-bed home, new owners might wish to update the decor, but the rooms are well-sized and of course enjoy incredible views.

The entrance hallway leads through to the open plan kitchen, living and dining space which has a timber floor, full height brick fireplace with stove, and opens directly onto the terrace overlooking the harbour. There is also a utility room off the kitchen. 

There are two bedrooms on this floor, one with teak fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom, while the other is double aspect, making it particularly bright.

Upstairs is a large sitting room that also looks out to the water. It has a parquet floor, and a teak fireplace with granite hearth. Doors open out to a balcony, yet another space from which to enjoy the amazing views. It is also protected by the overhang of the roof, meaning you can sit outside even on wet days.

There are a further two bedrooms on the first floor, as well as a main bathroom. 

The home’s access to the water is a main feature, with 90 foot piled floating marina with galvanised gangway, a slipway for water access from road, and a storage shed with a galvanised door and oil tank all making it ideal for boat owners. 

Kinsale itself is also a selling point. Situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, people come for the sailing, the great food on offer, and its natural beauty. 

It’s also just half an hour’s drive from Cork city, while the beautiful Cork coastline is yours to explore both east and west.
