Seldom does a house with commanding coastal views combined with rolling countryside come to the
market in such a convenient location. Such is the case with this home at Reagrove, located outside
Minane Bridge close to the towns of Kinsale and Carrigaline. Set along a perfect Irish country road
you would be forgiven for not really knowing exactly what part of the southern Irish coastline you
are on given the picture-perfect images the surrounding area paints. This beautiful 5/6 bedroomed
detached home extends to just over 2,700 sq. ft on c. 3/4 acre of ground and built in 1999 by its
current and only owners. The property has been a much loved and cared-for family home. The
property boasts an original Famine-era stone-built cottage in the garden and combined with old
stone walls as the boundary enhances the character of this home. With children having flown the
nest it is time to downsize and offer the opportunity to the next owner to use all of the space on
offer. The property sits perfectly on the grounds with manicured gardens extending to approx. half an acre directly adjacent to the house. There is an extensive patio running to the rear of the property
which has planted flowering beds and vegetable patches. An old stone wall depicts the boundaries
to the front and side while a fuchsia hedge sorts to the other side. The balance of the site while
lawned allows nature to do its thing.
The property was well thought out and gives an excellent balance between living and bedroom
accommodation. The living accommodation enjoys a wealth of reception rooms in varying sizes and
offers from the formal lounge to the cosy family room. There are a number of rooms that provide
multi-function depending on a purchaser\'s requirements. Five of the six bedrooms are at first floor
level with master en-suite. A double bedroom at ground floor level with adjacent bathroom caters
for that requirement should it occur. The open plan kitchen/dining room is located to the southern
side of the property to the rear and with its spectacular views makes it a difficult place to leave. The
only reason you would want to do this is to sit in the fully glazed conservatory which gives even
better all-round views located just off the dining space via double doors.
The location of this home is sought after as it nestles nicely at the mid-way point between the town
of Kinsale and Carrigaline and enjoys the benefits that both these towns have to offer. It is an easy
30 minutes to Cork Airport and Cork city beyond. Carrigaline is a thriving host town for the many
companies located beyond. It offers the convenience of services, recreational and educational
facilities, retail and restaurants catering for everyday life. The immediate community of Minane
Bridge are renowned for their annual Arts and community festival held in July of each year attracting
a wide range of artists to the village. Kinsale is renowned for its cuisine aptly named as the Gourmet
Capital of the South and has a host of water-based sporting activities to include sailing, surfing and
fishing. Other sporting clubs at Kinsale include Equestrian, rugby and of course golf at the
renowned Old Head. The immediate locality offers a choice of local schools, post office and shop as
well as selection of sandy beaches from Rocky Bay to Roberts Cove and all the little private spaces in
between that only locals would know.

Pockets of colour are punched out through flowering beds and rockeries adjoining the house. An old stone wall complete with pedestrian gate encompasses the gardens to the front and the eastern side. A mature fuchsia hedge takes care of the other two sides. An arch in the Fuchsia takes you through to the balance of the grounds again laid to lawn but allows nature to do its own work.
