With its rugged landscape, secluded position and spectacular views over a private lake, this property is simply a place apart. Finished in 2010 to an exceptionally high standard, it was designed to sensitively follow the contours of the landscape.

Although hidden from view, The Lake House has featured in several interior publications, both at home and in the UK. Set on c. 1.65 acres, the highest point of the property has a 360-degree view of the surrounding countryside and Atlantic. In fact, the beam of the Fastnet lighthouse, obliquely hits the house at night.

This unique single storey residence measures in excess of 2,100 sq ft. Consisting of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the design ethos has a light, spacious, contemporary feel, boasting stunning views from every vantage point. Clean lines, sloping roofs and full height glazing maximise the natural daylight and aspects to their fullest.

The intentionally pared back interiors are strikingly sleek and functional. With its virtual all-white palette, solid beachy tones and wide plank walnut flooring, the house has a warm restful atmosphere.

From the living room, you have direct access to the water via a deck, patio and small jetty. While the summer house provides the perfect place to relax, unwind or socialise.

With herons, families of Mallard, Moore hens and freshwater fish, it's instantly obvious that nature is the main focal point of the house. Even some rare river otters, stop by for the occasional visit.

Superbly located, the property is just a 5 minute stroll from the coastline. The village of Schull, with its selection of bars, restaurants and shops, is approximately a 10-minute drive away. The blue flag Barleycove beach and the village of Goleen are within close proximity. The popular market towns of Bantry and Skibbereen are both approximately a 30-minute drive while Cork international airport is approximately a 90-minute journey.
