According to local folklore, when explorer Sir Francis Drake was second-in-command of the English fleet facing the Spanish Armada, he sailed up Owenboy river to Drake's Pool, a river anchorage outside Crosshaven, to hide his vessel from the enemy.

Drake's exploits are remembered at the picturesque village in a development by O'Flynn Construction called Drake's Point.

Since a new phase was launched off the plans last year, new-builds at the scheme have been drip-fed to the market, with 20 of the 46 houses in the tranche already sold. At present, there are 10 units for sale, namely a mix of two and three-bed terraced homes and four-bed semi-detached properties.

The two-bed mid-terraced townhouses are aimed at first-time buyers, measure 861 sq ft and cost from €220,000.

The three-bed versions are 983 sq ft, and are priced from €280,000, while four-beds have 1,343 sq ft of accommodation and are selling for €325,000.

The houses were designed to have an energy rating of A3 and feature an air-to-water heat pump system that provides a responsive central heating system.
