Surrounded by rolling hills with mountain views in the distance, this characterful West Cork home has plenty of charm. 

Set in a peaceful rural location, this four-bedroom home overlooks both Whiddy Island and Bantry Bay. Featuring bright and spacious rooms throughout, the home was built in 2000 and is just 7km from the vibrant market town of Bantry. 

A generous gravel drive leads up to the front of the house, with ample off-road parking in front of the building. Inside, the main accommodation includes a porch, entrance hall, guest bathroom, walk-in storage room, a split-level kitchen with pantry, dining area, living room and four bedrooms. 

In the sitting room, reclaimed pitch pine flooring and an open fire are among the standout features. A double-glazed PVC sliding door leads from the dining area to a patio area to the rear of the property with incredible views of the garden and surrounding countryside.  

The same pitch pine flooring continues into the split-level open-plan kitchen/dining area. The living room is characterised by New England-style panelling and features an open fire and a vaulted ceiling.

Two of the bedrooms, both ensuite and with built-in wardrobes and dual aspect windows can be found on the ground floor with two further bedrooms located upstairs.  

The sale also includes a basement apartment – accessed from within the main house or via a separate side entrance. The apartment comprises a kitchen/dining room, an ensuite bedroom with built-in wardrobe, utility room, living room, bathroom and plant room. 

The property also boasts oil-fired central heating – underfloor in the apartment along with the living spaces of the main house – with radiators in the bedrooms. The property currently has a B3 BER rating. 

Currently on the market for €695,000 through West Cork Property Limited, you can take a closer look inside this impressive family home in our gallery below.
