A truly exceptional sheltered property on c. 8 acres enjoying wonderful views over the countryside, coast and Tralispean Bay. The property comprises a well-insulated 3-bedroom house, 3 connected insulated workshops, a large modern 2-storey Boathouse, a substantial garden shed, a large polytunnel and the ruins of a pre-famine cottage. Moorings are readily available.
Measuring c. 1,900 sq.ft, the house comprises a large living room/kitchen, a conservatory, 2 bathrooms and has many extra features including wooden sash windows, slate floors, beamed ceiling, wood burning stoves plus 3 bedrooms with sea views.
There are approx 6 acres of rough land and c. 2 acres of horticultural land that has been organically cultivated in recent years. Planning permission has been granted for a porch to the front of the house and a machine shed.
Approached by a private laneway & just 400m from the beach, the property is in an area of outstanding natural beauty & scientific interest. Nestled into the hillside, the house is sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds & blends into the landscape whilst retaining sea views.
Very adjacent to Lough Ine nature reserve, Tralispean is one of the safest and most attractive Beaches on the rugged west Cork coastline.
Coming from the market town of Skibbereen (12 minutes` drive), you are greeted by a huge panoply of wonderful patchworked hilly fields and the most amazing sea views that lie beyond. In stormy weather, you can see great plumes of white water off Bullock Island, and when the sun shines over it all – it is without comparison!
Outside there is a workshop and a Boathouse. The Garage was converted into a Workshop and could be used as guest accommodation if needed subject to PP.
The Boathouse was built in 2016 to the highest standards and has potential to be used as guest accommodation or a studio. All walls are insulated with Kingspan, the four roof lights and the double doors are top quality. Should anyone wish to use this beautifully-sited property as a dwelling in the future, planning permission would have to be obtained to install septic and waste water arrangements.
Situated in a most tranquil and private area, this charming property would be an ideal holiday home or permanent residence.
