SALE OF A UNIQUE AND STUNNING PROPERTY - ILLAUNCREVEEN, GLENGARRIFF, WEST CORK.
At the mouth of Glengarriff Harbour sits this most divine property known as Illauncreeveen. Located ca. 100 metres out from the mainland this glorious ca. 4.5 acre island enjoys a detached dwelling which has been carefully restored and fortified by the current owners. The island was carefully planted to ensure the dwelling house is private. The waters around the island are beautifully clear and a veritable treasure trove of sea life surrounds. Passing dolphins and whales are regular visitors as is the constant flight of various birds. There is a safe mooring to the north side and a number of other suitable launch pads.
Illauncreeveen is a regularly photographed landmark in West Cork and was recently profiled by Dan McCarthy in his Islands of Ireland Series in the Irish Examiner.
The House on the island was built by the White Family of Bantry Estate. The Island was used for a period by the British Navy, the Obelisk on the island was built in 1908, when the HMS Achilles was anchored close to Illauncreeveen while in the Bantry bay.
The waters around the island are highly regarded for the excellent supply of scallops and lobster, you could strongly make the case that the next owners of Illauncreeveen have all the tools for a self-sufficient lifestyle, making this property the ultimate of off grid get away.
This sensational opportunity is literally a once in a lifetime offering, bring a boat or at least your swimming attire! Come quickly for this one!
