Savills is delighted to present this once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire the only residential property in Kinsale town with direct water access from the private marina and slipway. This home sits literally on the edge of the water in Kinsale. Renowned worldwide for its magnificent harbour which attracts many overseas sailors every year, Kinsale is also recognised as the gourmet capital of Ireland most recently achieving its first Michelin Star at Bastion restaurant in the town. The cosmopolitan and historic town is home to Kinsale Yacht Club with a magnificent marina in the heart of the town. Kinsale has one of the most beautiful and sheltered natural harbours in Ireland where many water sports are enjoyed. Kinsale is the starting point of the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland' s coastline journey of c.1,000km of the west coast from South to North where on its rugged coastline overlooking the sea, your will find the exclusive Old head of Kinsale Golf Club. Edgewater, built in 1990 by the current owner' s family, is designed in traditional Kinsale architectural style being stone built with slate upper elevations. The build quality is excellent with slate roof which overhangs the upper floor balcony, concrete upper floor, pvc double glazed windows and doors, fascia and soffit. This quayside location is accessed via timber access gates with an abundance of parking space to the rear of the property. The property enjoys 180 degree views over Kinsale harbour with James Fort and Castlepark as a backdrop to the south west with Charles Fort and Ardbrack Hill to the south east. This 181 sq m (1950 sq ft) design splits accommodation over two floors with two very large reception rooms on both floors. At ground level an entrance hallway leads immediately through a glazed teak door to the kitchen/living dining room which opens directly on to the terrace overlooking the harbour. The kitchen leads to a utility room with access to the side of the property. Two bedrooms, one of which is ensuite, and a guest w.c. are located to the rear of the property on this floor. Upstairs a large sitting room opens directly to the large balcony which is sheltered by the overhang of the roof and provides beautiful views of the harbour. There are two ensuite bedrooms and the main bathroom is also at this level. The deep water marina has galvanised gangway access directly from the quayside terrace. This marina has a low water depth of 2.7m and is suitable for most craft including deep keel yachts. The 90ft floating marina is piled and can accommodate approximately 6 boats with its own foreshore license. This is a unique home and whether you are a sailor or just simply love to watch the boats sail by, this is definitely the one for you.
