Take Four with a river view . . . Downwater Cottage

What: Four-bedroom waterfront cottage Where: Downriver Cottage, Church Cross, Skibbereen, West Cork

Downriver Cottage is a pretty four-bedroom cottage-style home overlooking the point where the river Ilen flows into Baltimore Harbour in west Cork.

The property has 180-degree river and coastal views from this one-acre site on the banks of the Ilen estuary.

It is located four miles downriver from Skibbereen and less than two miles by boat from the famous fishing village of Baltimore.

Tucked neatly into the bank of the estuary, Downriver Cottage extends to 167sqm (1,800sq ft) in size and its BER rating is pending.

The accommodation opens with a tiled entrance hallway, off which is a washroom. Off the hall is a large open-plan area that encompasses the kitchen, living room and dining room. The kitchen area has a solid pine fitted kitchen, while the living area at the other end of the room has an open fire with raised fireplace.

Off the open-plan room is the south-facing sunroom, which features floor-to-ceiling windows and a sliding patio door to enhance its river views.

Also on the ground floor is a tiled utility room and the first of four bedrooms. This ensuite bedroom has river views and built-in wardrobes.

Moving upstairs, two more bedrooms are dual-aspect with river views, while a third has a river view from its Velux window. There is a fifth room that doubles as a bedroom and study, as well as a tiled bathroom.
