This stunning property with uninterrupted views of Kenmare Bay is on the market for €775,000

An impressive four-bed detached house with elevated views over Kenmare Bay and its many islands, Iona House in Co Kerry is a stunning property with plenty of character.

Originally built in 2007, the property has been redecorated in recent years and is in excellent decorative condition throughout. Inside, the internal accommodation comprises approximately 191 sq.mt(2,056 sq. ft). 

A brightly-lit entrance hall leads into the open-plan living area, where you’ll find a large curved window with unparalleled views over Kenmare Bay. A handsome marble fireplace stands against one wall, bringing warmth to the area on cold winter evenings. Elsewhere in the room, glass French doors open out onto the patio.

The kitchen-cum-dining room can also be accessed via the living room. Fitted with wooden cabinetry and with plenty of counter space, this room is also privy to some of the best views around. A small utility room houses a fridge, washing machine and dryer, as well as another sink and fitted storage units. 

In the master bedroom, double French doors lead out to the patio – the perfect place from which to enjoy your morning coffee. This room also features an en-suite with walk-in shower and separate walk-in wardrobe with dressing area, shelving, drawers and clothes hanging space. 

Two of the other bedrooms are also en-suite – both with timber flooring, one with its own walk-in wardrobe. Tiles line both the floors and walls in the main family bathroom which also has a bath for added relaxation.

Outside, the property includes two metal-clad sheds with concrete flooring. One is currently being used for fuel storage while the other has lighting and shelving and is being used as a garage. 

Set on private grounds of approximately 1.11 acres, exterior features include a large lawn and patio area with a southerly aspect taking advantage of the elevated scenic views over the bay. Located in a quiet rural area, approximately 9 km (a 10-minute drive) west of Kenmare Tow, Iona House is within close proximity to attractions such as Cos Strand (2km), the Ring of Kerry Golf Course (2.6km), Templenoe Pier (3.2km) and Dromquinna Manor (4.3km). 

Currently on the market for €775,000, you can take a closer look inside this beautiful home in our gallery below. Viewing of this highly sought-after property is by appointment only and can be arranged via Sherry FitzGerald Daly
