Mary White's Cottage is in a sublime location, nestled into the hillside overlooking Carrigillihy strand and harbour. With its own direct access to the shoreline, this is an exceptional property, enjoying unrivalled views of one of the most stunning vistas on the West Cork coastline.
Approached by a quiet country lane and set on just under half an acre, the residence measures approximately 151sq m/1,600sq ft. With many wonderful features including traditional slate floors, painted stone walls and timber beamed ceilings. It has been tastefully extended and modernized over the years and now provides a home of style and comfort that makes the most of its unique location.
On approach, parking is provided in the remains of a pre-famine dwelling with the residence secluded from the road by well-positioned hedging. Upon entering the pedestrian gate, you step down into the sun terrace and your own private coastal oasis. The sensation is of floating high above the harbour with a bird's eye view of everything going on below.
Accommodation consists of 3 reception rooms, kitchen, study, 3 bedrooms, 1 en-suite and family bathroom. The authenticity of the cottage is still very evident but through clever use of design and colour palette it is given a very fresh modern ambience.
The gardens are well landscaped with a mixture of mature shrubs and flowering plants. The sun deck makes the most of the coastal aspect whilst there are steps leading down to the shingle beach.
The integral feature of this property is its proximity to the coastline and the spectacular coastal vista that can be enjoyed from all the principal rooms.
This area of South West Ireland has outstanding unspoilt natural beauty.
