Architect design on west Cork shore

LOTS of land options come with this architect-designed, Glengarriff, west Cork home with frontage to the Gulf Stream-warmed waters.

This section of shoreline holds a fascination for Continental European and UK buyers, and, in this case, the couple selling up after years in residence are, indeed, Dutch. And, going Dutch, they’ve assigned the sale of this quite special Ardnaturrish property to not one, but two selling agents, local auctioneer John O’Neill, of Celtic Properties, and Dominic Daly, in Cork city.

They pin a €690,000 asking price on the main, four-bed house, on about ten acres of land, with shore frontage, and then, if a buyer wants more space, there’s an option to buy up to 40 acres, all-in, including a derelict, two-bed stone cottage – but this pushes the price up quite considerably, although a firm AMV isn’t given for the larger land option which won’t ever have a farm return for this sort of amenity value. But, then, in a setting like this, value is in the eye of the beholder.

Irrespective of which amount of land this package is bought on, the buyer will get that all-important shore frontage, onto a small beach, and a small right-of-way road to another house cuts through the land coming with this Ardnaturrish home package, on its naturalistic, landscaped gardens and organic vegetable patch.

The house itself has a 19’ by 16’ lounge and a largely open-plan dining room/living room area, with kitchen, utility, four bedrooms and shower room.

There’s oil heating, water well, a detached garage and the scope of doing up the stone cottage.
