3 Bath





  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
  • Overall Floor Area: 176m2
The Villa is nestled on the inner reaches of the much sought-after Rossbrin Cove, with its view framed by the iconic Rossbrin Castle. Elevated from the road and facing due South, the residence is well positioned on its own grounds. Set on approx. 0.7 acres of well landscaped gardens, there are an abundance of sub-tropical flowering plants and shrubs which thrive in West Cork's micro climate due to the proximity of The Gulf Stream to our shores. Although the property does require modernisation, a new oil-fired boiler was installed in 2018. The accommodation extends to approx. 1,900 sq ft (172 sq m) with the principal rooms all benefiting from the coastal aspect. Accommodation consists of kitchen, living room, dining room, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a guest wc. A real bonus is the public quay adjacent to the property. Rossbrin Cove is a beautiful sheltered inlet on the South-West coast of Ireland, with the famous Fastnet Rock and Lighthouse just 8 nautical miles off-shore. The remains of Rossbrin Castle which dates from the 14th century, was once the home of Finghinn o Mathuna, the Scholar Prince, who died in 1496. He was famous for his scholarship and hospitality and Rossbrin became a centre of learning under his guardianship. Approximately equal distance are the villages of Schull and Ballydehob (both about 5km away). Schull is renowned for its sailing and water sports, whilst Ballydehob has a reputation for the arts. Both have a range of excellent restaurants serving fresh local produce including one with a Michelin Star. There are also many cafes and traditional pubs. Skibbereen (market town) is approx. 15 mins drive where there are a host of public amenities. Cork International Airport is approx. 80 mins drive. Rossbrin is a place of natural beauty and provides an idyllic location for a holiday, retirement or re-location home. Accommodation: Porch: 3m x 2.3m. Tiled floor. Bedroom 1: 5.6m x 4.9m.
