A place apart, so take it to heart

IT’s a good 18 miles from Kenmare, but Collurus peninsula is a place apart.

Mountains, lush summer growth and lots of water make this a secluded and beautiful place in which to live.

And with holiday home prices taking a hammering, those with the wherewithal can pick up a good buy in the south-west at the moment.

This cottage, built in 2001 and designed by local architect Daniel Dusowa is just on the market at €350,000 through John Daly of Sherry FitzGerald Daly.

Not only does it have a waterfront location onto Kenmare Bay and three-quarters of an acre of land, but it also comes with a mooring. According to John Daly, Dusowa’s houses are instantly recognisable: there’s symmetry, a pleasing size and an interior that’s usually open plan.

That’s the story here with the Collurus House, which comes with a German, high-spec kitchen as part of a large, living/ dining room.

The ground floor also includes a main bedroom, bathroom and overhead in the dormer, there are two more double rooms.

All in all, the house has 1,300 square feet, ideal for a holiday or retirement home, and the land is mostly wild — with all that water around.

The village of Ardgroom is three miles away and then, there’s Kenmare for the gourmet night out.
