SUPERIOR COASTAL POSITION with the most breath-taking views over Dunmanus Bay to the Beara Peninsula, this home measures approximately 2,700 sq ft (249 sq m) having been extensively renovated & extended under the guidance of John Verling – Architect.
The original residence is a bungalow which is self-contained and has three bedrooms – two with king beds and a twin with two 3'8 beds, two shower rooms, large eat-in kitchen, dining room with large window overlooking mountains. The living room has a panoramic window, french doors that walk out to a terrace that overlooks the coastline and also a fireplace. Utility Room has full sized washer/dryer, laundry sink and second shower room.
The annex stone house or second self-contained home is open concept layout. The kitchen is open to the dining room which comfortably seats six, ten if you borrow four chairs from the neighbours. At every turn there are large windows which give you panoramic views of Dunmanus Bay. The living room has large couches and chairs. There is a stone fireplace which can make the home warm and cosy on the wild and windy nights.
The conservatory is built in an octangle and positioned to view the stream on the property or Dunmanus Bay with its boats and mussel beds.
Upstairs is a large bedroom with velux windows and another stone fireplace. The bathroom has a soaker tub, walk in shower, sink, toilet and velux windows.
There are a number of charming design touches throughout such as the use of natural slate floor throughout the ground floor of the stone cottage which has been sealed with a high-grade varnish and tongue & groove panelling. Both residences have natural slate roofs, high grade thermo paned windows and high-pressured water system.
Located off a minor public road and situated on 0.6 acres laid out mainly in lawn and bounded by mature trees, shrubs, flowering plants and a spectacular stream which runs the length of the land to a magnificent waterfall down to the sea.
This is an exceptionally well-appointed coastal property in close proximity to Durrus village where there are a number of public amenities. Cork International Airport approx. 80 mins drive.
Would ideally suit a large family or a couple who would like to live in one part and rent the other residence as although interconnected, they are quite separate and metered separately. It would also make a wonderful Bed & Breakfast or ideally suited for Airbnb.
