The White House, Main Street, Castletownshend, Co. Cork
- Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
Three-Storey Georgian Townhouse with Walled Garden This detached period residence has a superb location very adjacent to the pier area on Castlehaven harbour. Castletownshend is a most unique period village on the West Cork coastline. It boasts many fine period houses and a wonderful harbour, especially for all sailing and boating activities. The White House, which was once owned by a well-known Victorian author, Edith Somerville of Somerville & Ross fame, has recently been restored and renovated to an extremely high standard. During the course of this, great care was taken to preserve and enhance its many period features. It is now in superb condition throughout. To the east of the house, there is a well-landscaped walled garden with separate access from the street. Castletownshend is one of the most sought-after residential locations on this coastline. It is approximately 5 miles to Skibbereen (Market Town) and 1 hours drive to Cork Airport. This property would be ideally suited as a full-time residence or a very upmarket second home.
