It used to be The Waves restaurant, but sporting a nautical theme, this apartment is perfect for beach seekers, writes Trish Dromey.
Size: 100 sq m (1,085 sq ft)
Exposed brickwork, glass blocks, and a few nautical touches have been used to transform this former Ballycotton restaurant into an attractive and interesting apartment.
Situated on the main street of the East Cork seaside village, this used to be The Waves restaurant but is now a two-bed ground-floor property known as No 1 The Waves.
Seeking offers of €190,000, Cronin Wall Auctioneers says it’s been completely renovated in the last six months and is now a modern apartment with both character and charm.
Decorated in neutral cream and fitted with mostly laminate flooring, it has a 24’-long kitchen/dining/living area, a brick fireplace with an electric fire, as well as brick archways and alcoves and sections of glass blocks.
Creative touches to liven up the decor include candles, lanterns, and a picture of a lighthouse, as well as a coloured glass window feature.
Other rooms include a small utility area, a modern tiled bathroom, and two spacious laminate-floored bedrooms.
The largest bedroom measures 20’by 10’ and has a door leading out to a small enclosed patio at the rear. Fitted with double-glazed windows, the property has slimline electric radiators.
Auctioneer Shea Cronin says the apartment is perfectly situated for holiday home buyers but will also appeal to those looking for a permanent residence near the sea.
“It’s right in the centre of the village and is close to restaurants and amenities and is within easy reach of beaches and cliff walks,” adds Mr Cronin.
