Apartments filled from port to starboard with view of boats at moorings, marinas and a boatyard or two.
Despite the Price Register throwing up two December sales of €1.1m and €1.7m, the top individual house sale in Crosshaven last year was for a home in Croí na Coille, Brookwood, weighing in at €805,000: the other two higher sums reflect block or grouped sales at the Brightwater and Drakes Point developments.
Bringing the mid-terraced, and unusually laid out 1,800 sq ft four bed apartment at 6 Castlepoint to market at a seemingly very reasonable €195,000 (No 20 made €300,000 in 2015, while next door No 5 sold in 2013 for €220,000), its selling agent Andrew Moore says of this fresh-to-market offer “it’s all about the views.”
Set just a few minutes walk up the Camden Road from the centre of pretty Crosshaven village, these three-storey Castlepoint apartments are reached at mid level from the back, while the front facade faces straight out over the water views at Crosshaven and the Owenabue estuary.
The vista’s filled from port to starboard with boats at moorings, marinas and a boatyard or two too.
There’s an elevated ‘seaside’ setting and woodland views to Currabinny, without any isolation, adds Mr Moore, plus there’s a good sense of community on the doorstep to float new arrivals’ boats.
No 6 Castlepoint has two of its bedrooms at lower ground level, two more at second floor level, has well-finished bathrooms (one lower level bedroom is en suite) and the main living room is mid-ships at 26’ by 16’ with full-on harbour views and upper level balcony access via French doors.
VERDICT: Sail on.
