West Cork home with old world charm 

Although Bridgewater House is only about 20 years old, it has the grace and elegance of a much older property. It's partly to do with the proportions - high ceilings, large rooms - and partly to do with the craftsmanlike touches to, for example, the stairway in the hall with its carved woodwork detailing and crisp white cornices, unusual in an age of new builds that favour minimal decorative flourishes. It gives this house a sense of solidity and also avoids some of the dangers of pastiche.
