Last home is up for grabs in sailing town

Copper Point, Schull, Co Cork

There is still one home available at Copper Point, a residential development in the fashionable west Cork sailing town of Schull, that commands views of the famous harbour from its sloped site.

The scheme of 55 homes, just a two-minute walk from the centre of Schull, was originally aimed at the holiday home market when it was launched in 2008. But since Copper Point was rereleased, enquiries have been evenly split between purchasers seeking a second home and those hunting for a full-time residence.

The development takes is name both from the copper mines on the southeast side of Mount Gabriel and the beacon on Long Island of the same name; Copper Point beacon was built in the 19th century to guide seafarers seeking a safe haven to Schull harbour. These days, Schull is known for the Fastnet International Schools Regatta, held in early July, as well as the Calves Week regatta.

The architect-designed homes at Copper Point are located on Airhill, a site positioned on three levels, thereby enabling each resident to have their own sea view. The common green areas are landscaped with trees, shrubs and perennials, most of which are native to west Cork.

Another phase of Copper Point is lined up for the months ahead. But for now, the only house available at the contemporary-style scheme is number 43.

This is a three-bed terraced home measuring 1,323 sq ft and costing from €240,000. It was built using traditional materials with a mix of zinc, copper, timber and Valentia slate stone panels.

Inside, the kitchen comes with solid Iroko worktops, and the main bathroom, ensuite and guest WC has white sanitary ware with chrome fittings. The living room has a contemporary built-in fireplace from the Faber range.
