The attractions of this five-bed detached property at Ring in Waterford include ocean and mountain views as well as a fully fitted out timber sauna.

No 4 An Leacáin is part of a high spec development of 15 houses built at the height of the boom in 2006 which were equipped with central vacuum systems, extra insulation, high quality fittings and saunas.

New to the market with a guide of €349,000, the house has 2,240 sq ft, and for anyone who needs additional space, it offers a wired log cabin in the back garden which could converted for use as an office or workshop.

The 28’ long kitchen/dining room runs from front to rear and has American oak units with integrated appliances and tiled flooring. At the rear is a large oak floored lounge with a solid-fuel stove and a large bay window which offers views across to the Comeraghs, of Dungarvan Bay and the Atlantic ocean in the distance.

At ground level there’s also a small utility room and a well-equipped bathroom with shower, a Jacuzzi bath and a timber sauna which can accommodate up to three or four people.

Upstairs, there’s a spacious master bedroom with a fitted wardrobe and vanity unit and an en suite. The other two bedrooms are at the rear looking out on to the sea and one of these also has an en suite.

Fitted with oil-fired central heating and double glazed windows, the property has a high B3 energy rating.

Outside in the landscaped gardens there’s a tarmac parking area, a paved seating area, a vegetable patch and a raised flowerbed as well as a good-sized lawn. The timber cabin is currently used for storage.

Situated in the Ring Gaeltacht, the property is 7kms from Dungarvan and 40kms from Waterford city. The village of Ring, which has a shop, a pub and a restaurant, is just a few minutes’ walk away.

Selling agents Sherry FitzGerald Reynolds say this is a luxurious trade-up property with breath-taking views.

“You can see all of the headland on the Copper Coast stretching as far as the Metal Man in Tramore,” says auctioneer Sinead Reynolds.

An Leacáin development has a mix of three, four and five bedroom detached houses. There haven’t been many sales in the area in recent years, although No 1 sold for €200,000 in July last year.

VERDICT: Excellent family home — new owners can detoxify in the sauna inside, and savour the views outside.
