This period farmhouse in Kinsale has beautifully rustic interiors and water views for €1.2 million

Sitting just metres from the river Bandon and with well-preserved original features, this family home is also near the popular town of Kinsale.

With water views, situated just minutes from the coastline and a short drive from Kinsale, this period farmhouse has a pretty enviable location. Built in 1836 and extensively restored in 2002, it also has plenty of original features still intact, giving the traditional character you would expect from this kind of home. 

You enter the house into a bright porch (perfect for removing boots and coats). The living room sits at the centre of the home, with the kitchen and dining room on either side. The living room has whitewashed stone walls, a feature fireplace with woodburning stove, and a half door to the garden.

The large dining room could potentially seat many people, while the current owners have combined modern kitchen units with more traditional freestanding pieces, a nice mix of old and new. The whole ground floor has sandstone flooring with underfloor heating.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and one bathroom. They all have high, vaulted ceilings, and three have beautiful exposed beams. The whitewashed stone walls continue on this level, and there are also traces of where small fireplaces once sat in the walls. 

The house sits on around 1.45 acres of mature land with trees, hedging, and also some raised beds. There is also an exterior storage shed where the current owners have a utility space.

Just five minutes walk from Sallyport’s beach and coastal walk, this house is in a wonderfully quiet location, yet is just 8 minutes drive into Kinsale with its sailing, yachting and fishing facilities, not to mention the pubs and restaurants, while Cork city is only 25 minutes away.
