Throw some light on the views

A WEST Cork bungalow at Dundeady, on the approach road to the Galley Head lighthouse, has a west-facing vista over pounding surf on Long Strand to Rosscarbery Bay, with other visual highlights being Castlefreke castle (now being renovated by the Freke family) Glandore bay and points further west, with the Fastnet a distant sentinel.

A good sunset alone will compel many viewers to consider buying here, and Martin Kelleher of SWS Property Services guides the 20-something-year-old bungalow at €380,000-plus.

It is within a walk from Long Strand, is close to sheltered Dirk Cove and sandy Red Strand, while Tidy Towns-winning village Rathbarry is three miles away, Rosscarbery seven and Clonakilty nine.

The bungalow may be bought as a holiday or permanent home.

Site values alone have jumped in the past year or two, especially for anything with views, so this is an opportunity maybe to work with or extend a relatively modern home as well, says SWS Property Services.

The house has three bedrooms (one en suite), hall, sitting room, dining room/kitchen, plus a shower room and back kitchen. There’s a patio on the views side, a garage on the sheltered side and heating is a mix of electric storage heaters and oil fired central heating.
