Built in 2003, the property was designed by acclaimed US architect Wm. Michels and engineered by Walsh Design group.
On arrival, you are greeted by wrought iron electric gates, swinging inwards to allow access onto a large and welcoming gravel driveway. You are immediately struck by the extremely attractive Coolmain Bay dry stone exterior finishing on all buildings, each topped with slate roofs.
Stepping inside the main home reveals an open plan reception hallway, kitchen/dining and living space which, in part, benefits from a 22'0" high vaulted ceiling point that further captures the light and beautiful coastal views towards the original Courtaparteen church, the Sovereign Islands and Kinsale harbour. Whilst on the ground floor, which is tiled throughout with Chinese slate with hardwood oak borders, you will also find a spacious and tranquil conservatory, three double en-suite bedrooms, a guest lavatory, a spacious utility area and an abundance of storage closets. Much of the accommodation is on the ground floor, whilst the upper floor offers a fourth bedroom and an exceptionally large home office with filing/storage room and lavatory.
Making your way into the professionally landscaped grounds, you enter to a private oasis of calm. Outdoors, you have a choice of areas to enjoy, including large east facing patios and lawns that are easily accessed from the ground floor providing quiet outdoor spaces to overlook agricultural fields and magnificent oceanic vistas.
Moving further into the garden you will find a spacious, self-contained one-bedroom cottage which mirrors the main home design with a double height ceiling in the living area. This cottage is in excellent decorative order and lends itself as an ideal guest quarters or rental property.
Pau Hana is also serviced with a terrific fully powered double garage featuring two automatic roller shutter doors, slat shelving, a self defrosting freezer and automatic 63 Amp generator.
Both the garage and cottage are also finished in attractive Coolmain Bay dry stone that relates these lovely buildings to the main house.
Beyond the cottage lies a wildflower paddock with a separate vehicular access point and good road frontage. The sea views from here are also exceptional. Such a space offers potential for a further separate dwelling or structure if desired, subject to planning permission. An equine stable and exercise arena comes to mind as a viable option. Within the paddock area lies a gravel pathway to a seating area which invites you to relax and enjoy the sublime coastal views.
Pau Hana has a thoughtful and homely design that encourages joyful living on one of Ireland's most breathtaking coastlines. Each and every space is designed to take full advantage of the sites natural light and spectacular views.
