Charles McCarthy Estate Agents & Savills proudly present Gortavallig House, Air Hill, Schull, a charming 5 bedroom detached period property (c. 3,000 sq ft) in exceptionally good decorative order located within an easy stroll of Schull's Main Street.
Situated on a private and mature site of c. 1 acre, it offers views of Schull's harbour and an array of intact original period features such as original marble fireplaces, plasterwork and stone outbuildings. It underwent upgrading works in recent years such as a new rear roof, installation of pvc fascia and soffit, upgraded flooring & kitchen.
Upon arrival you are greeted by a large gravel driveway and wrought iron railing boundary, the driveway whisks you to the rear of the property where you will find large original outbuildings, a rear access point and access to beautifully landscaped side gardens.
Stepping inside via the welcoming porch area, you are greeted by a spacious hallway with tiled floor and high ceilings, from here you can access a choice of reception rooms which include the lounge, games room, kitchen/dining room with utility area, sun room, guest shower room and a large ground floor bedroom. Making your way upstairs reveals four bedrooms, which offer views of Schull harbour and a large bathroom with adjoining walk-in storage closet.
The lasting impression is one of great natural light, very good decorative order, privacy and great convenience to both Schull's Main Street and the harbour to avail of water activities.
Stepping into the gardens, which can be directly accessed from the lounge, dining area and sunroom, brings you to an oasis of calm that has been superbly planted and landscaped which in turn offers great privacy. The orientation here is south west and is an ideal space for home barbeques or indeed to simply enjoy the evening sun.
The convenience of this property is truly magnificent, on your doorstep you will find a choice of bars, restaurants, shops, Schull sailing club and a choice of coastal walks as well as mountain walks. The highly regarded Ballyrisode and Barleycove beaches are a short drive away.
The property comes with the added benefit of achieving outline planning permission in 2017 for a new build in the side garden. Planning reference: 17/00061.
