Some of Carbery’s Hundred Isles have namesakes with their New York counterparts, set in Roaringwater Bay at the edge of Schull harbour - so many islands in fact that some name duplication had to occur.
A house overlooking the afore-mentioned Coney and Long Islands, Glao na Faoiolean on Schull’s Colla Road is on the market with a €550,000 price guide with Pat Maguire of South Western Property Services.
Given its setting and views, it quite rightly has not one, but two conservatories in front to catch the scenery, and to do it in all-weather comfort.
The Colla Road is sort of Schull’s Golden Mile, where values are high, and this property on 0.75 of an acre is near the Colla pier and harbour.
One of the two sun-rooms is off the main bedroom, via folding doors, and this master room also has an impressive en suite bathroom, with Jacuzzi bath and freestanding power shower, and there’s also a walk-in wardrobe behind an archway.
Despite its size, Glao na Faoilean has just three bedrooms, all with views.
The property also has two garages, oil heating, a pressurised water system and satellite TV - to keep in touch with global matters.
