Cape View gets its name from its panoramic views over the Mizen Peninsula, the West Cork coastline and Fastnet Rock.
At one time priced at €2.2m it is now on the market with a €1.4m asking price.
Designed in the Georgian style, it has been refurbished while retaining many of its period features. The main doorway, beneath its Georgian fanlight, leads into a spacious entrance hall with a graceful staircase.
Its total living area of 400sqm includes a dining room from where French doors lead into a conservatory where visitors can relax and enjoy spectacular West Cork sunsets.
Ground floor accommodation also includes a drawing room, kitchen, pantry, cloakroom, utility room and games room. A 12m indoor heated swimming pool and sauna are located to the rear of the house. The house is centrally heated but an open fire can also be lit in the elegant lounge.
Upstairs there are six bedrooms of which five are doubles each with wash-hand basins. Two bathrooms come with showers.
The wide hallway on the top floor could accommodate an office and leads to a balcony over the main entrance which commands scenic views over the coastline.
Sitting on three acres, the grounds are laid out in a garden, a driveway with a water fountain and seating areas to enjoy the scenery.
A two bedroom stone fronted guest cottage has a 100sqm living area and is connected to the main house through a courtyard.
The cottage's living area has a fireplace and its fitted kitchen has a dining area. A stone built fuel store and boat house are also arranged around the courtyard.
Located approximately a half mile from the village of Goleen, Cape View is within five miles of the sandy beaches at Barleycove.
