Nestled into the bay with its own access to the shoreline, this beautiful cottage has a truly idyllic location. 


Can you imagine waking up to beautiful sea views everyday? That’s what the new owners of Mary Whites Cottage will enjoy, as it’s set into the hillside overlooking Carrigillihy strand and harbour, just a few kilometres from the equally picturesque Glandore and Union Hall.

This home has plenty of character, featuring slate floors, stone walls, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings, and a pre-famine building actually sits on the site, which is currently used for parking.

West Cork home for sale

The ground floor has three reception rooms, a living room, combined sitting and dining room, and a conservatory where you can sit and enjoy the sea views.

The large kitchen has traditional units which have been painted a duck egg blue. This space has a double-height ceiling, making it feel very open, as well as access to the garden. There is also a utility room and study on this level.

Upstairs, there is a family bathroom and three bedrooms, all with vaulted ceilings, and the main bedroom has its own ensuite. Outside, the site, just under half an acre, has been planted with a combination of mature shrubs and flowering plants. A sun terrace is ideal for outdoor seating, while a flight of steps leads down directly to the shingle beach below.

This house is perfect for lovers of the outdoors. As well as the beautiful surrounding scenery, fishing, sailing and kayaking are all well catered for in the area. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this home.
