Imagine waking up to this spectacular view in an idyllic West Waterford setting. This home, Number 4 Coastguard Cottages, Helvic, Ring, Dungarvan, County Waterford is a bit of property magic. This is a rare jewel and Brian Gleeson Property are delighted to afford the discerning buyer the opportunity to acquire a special weekend or full-time residence. Recently refurbished and sympathetically decorated in sea colours of green and blue, this former coastguard cottage is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac beneath Helvick Head at the tip of the unspoilt Ring peninsula on Ireland's south-east coast. Originally built around 1836 to service the signal station on top of Helvick Head, the cottage commands a prime coastal position with its picture windows offering uninterrupted panoramic sea views stretching across Dungarvan Bay to Ballinacourty Lighthouse, Hook Head, and beyond to the Comeragh Mountains. The accommodation comprises of a large lounge with wood burning stove, kitchen-diner, bathroom, and three double bedrooms. The spectacular sea views are also enjoyed from the large, elevated garden to the rear of the property. A short stroll from the cottage takes you down into picturesque Helvick Harbour with its RNLI station, Solas Na Mara wellness centre offering seawater seaweed baths and massages, café, and prime sea fishing opportunities from either the working fishing pier or flotilla of boats. Local shops, pubs, restaurant, and beaches (including the secluded Helvick cove) are all within walking distance and the bustling market town of Dungarvan with its award-winning restaurants lies 8 miles away. Helvick Head is a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and its numerous trails attract walkers and birdwatchers with its cliffs offering nesting sites for seabirds including choughs and shag, and other species such as razorbill, peregrine falcon, black-legged kittiwake, and black guillemot regularly spotted. The Ring peninsula is the only area on Irelands south-east coast where Irish (Gaeilge) is still spoken. Enjoy the pictorial essay...this is a home in a location where the pictures paint a thousand words, an idyllic location during and post lockdown, one not to be missed!
