What do you want from life? The mindless drudgery of nine to five, five days a week, only to then go home and be shouted at by your ankle biters? Or, get yourself out of the urban jungle, away from the rat race and down to Fethard-on-Sea, and see how life really should be lived. Easy choice.

The agent advises that La Spizzichina is a rare find and, you know, they might just be right. Located on the renowned Hook Peninsula, this home provides direct access to the water via a private stairway at the bottom of the well-maintained garden. Hello? Like that's fairly common up and down the country.

Can't you just see yourself strolling from your property to The Grange on the other side of the bay at low tide, swimming directly from your home or fishing from Fethard Harbour, not to mention using the boating access at the bottom of the garden and visiting several beaches within a 10-minute walk? You know, the more I think about this home, the more I really feel it's not in Ireland at all.

Naturally, the property is large and provides spacious living accommodation along with the opportunity to expand into its three attics. It also has underfloor air heating, air conditioning throughout and an outside terrace with its own chimney.

Bit it's the never-to-be-interrupted sea views that will have the hands rising on 20 June. Truly a one off.
