31st Jan 2023
Located on a mature site at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the property enjoys plenty of privacy and is well removed from the hustle and bustle of outside life.
Blessed with uninterrupted sea and countryside views, this impressive property in Kinsale is a peaceful haven for nature lovers.
An aerial view of the property shows the home’s truly unique layout with the buildings connecting to form a star shape. Inside, the accommodation comprises a living-cum-dining room, a fine kitchen with adjacent lounge, four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The distinctive octagon-shaped hallway, with its vaulted ceiling and domed centre light, leads into the four wings of the house; the living and reception areas, the master suite and the sleeping quarters. The home benefits from double-height vaulted ceilings in both the master bedroom and all living areas which also feature glass gables that offer unparalleled views of the scenery outside.
A large patio wraps around the lounge, living room and hallway with various access points through sliding and French doors. Elsewhere in the home is the kitchen which offers fully fitted units with granite worktops and integrated appliances.
The master bedroom has fine walk-in wardrobes and a beautiful en-suite with a jacuzzi bath overlooking the sea. There are a further three bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom. The attic, presently an office, has been fully converted in recent years. The property features a superb BER of B1 as a result of underfloor heating throughout powered by a geothermal heat pump and high insulation values.
Set on just over one acre of land (1.1 acres, to be precise), the outside area is partly landscaped with an expansive lawn and wildflower meadow. The site also includes direct access to a secluded beach – perfect for swimming or kayaking when the weather is good. Other standout features include plenty of off-road parking, as well as a large double garage.
Located halfway between Kinsale town and Carrigaline, the home is immersed in nature yet still close enough to benefit from all local services. Nearby amenities range from primary and secondary schools to a community arts centre and any number of great restaurants and pubs. Cork City can be reached within 30 minutes by car as can Cork International Airport.
Leisure activities are well catered for, with excellent sailing, yachting and fishing facilities available from Kinsale’s two marinas. There are also two golf courses including the renowned Old Head of Kinsale. For wild sea swimmers, Rocky Bay, a beautiful sandy beach, is located at the end of the next cul-de-sac and is directly accessible from Reargrove at low tide.
