Nestled at the pristine entrance to Rossbrin Cove, this meticulously restored and tastefully extended three-bedroom 19th century farmhouse (c. 136 sqm) is a rare and coveted waterfront gem, encompassing circa 33 acres of headland in a singular uninterrupted block. Offering unparalleled privacy and seclusion, this property delivers an exquisite coastal experience in the heart of West Cork. Commanding the entrance to Rossbrin Cove, the holding includes the remnants of Rossbrin Castle – a testament to Ireland's storied past. Dating back to the 15th or 16th century, though said to have originated in 1310, the castle whispers tales of the O' Mahony's, piracy on the high seas and changing allegiances from yesteryears. Rossbrin Cove is the epitome of sheltered beauty, an ideal haven for sailing, water sports, and moorings. The extensive foreshore, which allows inhabitants direct and intimate access to the coastline, any maritime enthusiast will rejoice in the tranquillity and potential of this sought-after waterfront location. Complementing the main residence are substantial outbuildings, echoing the property's farmhouse roots and providing versatile spaces for a myriad of uses, be it for storage or hobby pursuits, the possibilities are abundant. Particularly, the adjacent stone outbuilding would be suitable for conversion subject to the required planning permissions. The surrounding lands have undergone extensive drainage works in recent years and would be considered of good agricultural quality. Located conveniently between the bustling harbour town of Schull and the ever-popular village of Ballydehob, the property ensures its residents never feel too far from civilization, yet sufficiently distant to enjoy serene coastal living. Both towns bring a mix of rich Irish culture, gourmet dining, boutique shopping and vibrant local communities, adding to the allure of the location. This is a unique offering to the market, with its combination of historical resonance, modern comforts, and natural beauty. For those seeking an unrivalled coastal aspect in West Cork, with both privacy and proximity to some of the region's most beloved locales, this property stands unmatched in its offering.
