Space, comfort and sea views in this Co Kerry home

The home of tasty mussels also offers up, tasty views, and a tasty price, says Trish Dromey.

Cromane, Kerry €425,000

Sq m 278 (3,000 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 5

BER: B3

Cromane in South Kerry is best known for its mussels, but the views from this seaside location, set between the peninsulas of Dingle and Iveragh, are also well worth sampling.

It is said to be one of the few locations from which you can see Mount Brandon, the Sliabh Mish Mountains and the McGillacuddy reeks all at once.

The views of Inch Beach, the sea and the craggy mountainous landscape across from Castlemaine Harbour on the Dingle Peninsula are likely to prove a strong selling point for this large detached waterfront property at Cromane Lower.

Seeking offer of €425,000, agent Darragh Burns, of Burns Auctioneers, says it’s built to the highest standards, close to The Wild Atlantic Way, Ring of Kerry, as well as golf courses at Dooks and Rossbeigh and could be used for holidays or a permanent residence.

It was built as a family home seven years ago on three quarters of an acre site across the road from the shingle beach at Cromane. 

Stretching to 3,000 sq ft, it has four bedrooms and has been fitted with solar panels which helped it achieve a high B3 BER rating.

Sea views are offered from two bay windows at the front – one on a walnut-floored sitting room with a marble fireplace and a Stanley stove and the other on a large oak floored en suite bedroom.

To the rear there’s a small larder, a utility room, a large bathroom and a spacious and stylish kitchen with a double height ceiling, cream units, granite worktops, a Waterford range and a large centre island.

In the hallway a central oak staircase leads to the first floor which is where the owners have decided to locate their formal dining room.

With a front facing window with sea views and a gallery overlooking the kitchen below, this has oak flooring and a large Kilgarvan stone and Valentia slate chimney-breast with a Stanley stove.

Above the large staircase is a spacious landing area lit by Velux windows and fitted with bookshelves.

At this level there are also three oak-floored bedrooms with en suites and walk in wardrobes - the largest is front-facing with sea views. 

The property has a long gravel driveway and extensive lawned gardens with a children’s play area.

Auctioneer Darragh Burns says the location, within easy reach of Killorglin, Rossbeigh and local golf courses and nearby Jacques Restaurant, is both scenic and sought after. 

He’s expecting both foreign and domestic interest.
