Charm of west Cork on the doorstep
The great thing about this home is its situation. The elevated one-acre site looks down to Galley Head Lighthouse and on out to The Stag's Rock near Castletownshend. It's 4km from Rosscarbery town and the Warren blue flag beach, but also close to the sought-after west Cork towns of Glandore, Union Hall and Leap. A trip into Clonakilty and its numerous pubs and restaurants would only take about 10 minutes by car, while Cork airport is about an hour away.
The entrance porch takes you straight into the open-plan kitchen/dining area. The kitchen has country-style fitted units and a breakfast bar with a solid timber worktop. Off the kitchen is the sitting room with a wood-burning stove with back boiler. The large utility room is fitted with wall and floor units and is plumbed for a washing machine and dryer, with a guest WC to the side.
There is an en-suite bedroom on this level with a dressing room. Upstairs is the master bedroom with its own bathroom, and another en-suite bedroom.
The floor area of the house is 2,000 sq ft. All windows are double-glazed and there is oil-fired central heating. The property uses a septic tank and has a private water supply. The gardens are laid in lawn to the front and the side of the house, with trees and shrubs.
There is plenty to do in Rosscarbery, with its beaches, walking trails, and, of course, Smuggler's Cove Adventure Centre. Owenahincha beach, just down the road, is very popular with surfers and mobbed with families during the summer months.
Rosscarbery also has great places to eat, like the award-winning and atmospheric Pilgrim's, or The Market House on South Square, or the relaxed O'Callaghan-Walshe showcasing west Cork's finest seafood.
