Property Details -




The early morning light pours into this most romantic hideaway retreat. A prominent 2/3 bed detached country house built approximately 15 years ago, enjoys beautiful views over the countryside and woodlands, the grounds are in excess of ca. 6 acres and comprise duck pond, woodland, garden patches, garage, guest two bedroom studio, garden shed and a stunning old stone cottage last occupied in ca. 1936. With good road frontage and private internal driveway this offering is brimming with promise and potential.

The main residence is well insulated bright and open and provides the availability of a ground floor bedroom, albeit currently used as an office/workspace. The studio and outbuildings would make for excellent revenue pursuits whether as short term holiday leasing or indeed long term. The grounds will appeal to small/specialist farm pursuits, dog training arena or simply more gardening or woodland trails. The location is highly desirable also being 10 minutes to Castletownbere and 15 minutes to Allihies Beach, but most importantly the only Bridal Way in Ireland passes along the road outside this property. It is a loop from Urhan over to Cnockoura and back over the Caha Mountain to Allihies.
