Four homes on the market with sea views
Fancy living by the sea? Here are four properties with sea views that are currently on the market
Dunmore, Seaview Road, Co Wicklow
€236k Fox & Gallagher, (096) 70900
Seaview Road slopes down off Dunbur Road, on the outskirts of Wicklow town, until it reaches the first hole of Wicklow Golf Club's 18-hole links. Dunmore is by the edge of the golf course and only 100 metres from the sea, which you can see from all the important reception rooms - living room, family room and kitchen/diner - downstairs. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, two en suite and the main one with a curved balcony to take in the sea views. There is underfloor heating downstairs. It's 3,010 sq ft in all and has been vacant for a while, so it needs TLC. Outside is a double garage.
The Pink House, Church Rd, Co Wexford
€550K PN O’GORMAN AUCTIONEERS, (051) 421 226
Situated between Duncannon's Star of the Sea church and the Martello Tower, the Pink House would have very pleasant views even without the insistent presence of Waterford Harbour across the road. Built in 2001, the Pink House measures 2,615 sq ft and has a lofted 1,033 sq ft garage on the grounds that might be pressed into service as a granny flat. The main house has a sitting room, dining room, study, conservatory and kitchen on the ground floor, and four bedrooms upstairs. It's on three-quarters of an acre and there's an option to get your hands on another 3.33 acres with it.
6 Oyster Cove, Connemara, Co Galway
€185K SHERRY FITZGERALD MANGAN, (095) 21888
There are six houses at Oyster Cove in Kilkieran - four terraced and two detached, including No6. They share three acres of grounds with non-stop views of Kilkieran Bay, a Special Area of Conservation. No6 has sea views from its open-plan ground-floor kitchen and living room, which has a stone fireplace and a glazed dining area with doors to the outside. Spiral stairs in this room lead to the two first-floor bedrooms, one of which gives onto a balcony overlooking the water. The village of Kilkieran is a five-minute walk away.
6 Towers Reach, Killala, Co Mayo
€236K FOX & GALLAGHER, (096) 70900
Killala is arguably most famous for its role in the 1798 rebellion, as General Humbert and his French troops arrived there in August and enjoyed a short-lived victory. The small Towers Reach development is situated between Killala village to the south and its harbour to the north, and there are views from there across to Bartragh Island. No6 is detached and has five bedrooms - four on the first floor and one downstairs. The ground floor also has a sitting room and an eat-in kitchen with patio doors and a separate utility. The floor area amounts to 2,152 sq ft in total.
