An original Church, lovingly converted into a unique family home, set on a mature, landscaped site with room for expansion and enjoying a magnificent location adjacent to and overlooking Glengarriff Harbour. The Church is listed in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (Registration Number 209100411). It is described as a Freestanding double height Church of Ireland, built c.1860, comprising a three-bay nave, lower single bay chancel, bell tower, vestry and entrance porch. The property comprising 160 sq. m. (1,715 sq. ft.) approximately, is carefully renovated to retain its original character. The many features of the home include original doors, wood panelled walls, original gothic style windows (some with attractive stained glass), tile and wood floors and original finishes throughout. The ground floor is accessed via original solid oak doors which lead to the entrance porch with guest toilet just-off located in the bell tower. Follow through to the sitting room which is adorned with wood panelled walls and ceilings and features a woodburning stove. Wooden double doors lead to a large open plan living space/library area with high vaulted ceiling, an ideal space for entertaining with the dining area perched on the alter just under large original stained glass windows. The kitchen is accessed via a back porch area and has the benefit of all modern kitchen appliances. The upper floor is laid out in a large mezzanine landing area with master bedroom ensuite just-off. There are also a further 2 double ensuite bedrooms on the ground floor. The grounds are set to the front and sides of this fine property. The gardens are in lawns and interspersed with mature specimen trees and shrubs. The space to the west of the Church would allow further sensitive development, subject to a grant of Planning permission. The Church is a rare opportunity to purchase a significant building and grounds, laid out for residential use and enjoying a scenic location, overlooking the famed seafront at Glengarriff. Glengarriff is a popular and scenic West Cork village, with a variety of shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and services located between Bantry and Kenmare towns on the Wild Atlantic Way. Cork city is a 1.5 hour drive and Killarney is a 1 hour drive.
