Split-level near cool Clonakilty

A CONTINENTAL European built this split-level, 2000 sq ft house just to the west of Clonakilty in west Cork. While its setting couldn’t be mistaken for anywhere else, its interior feel is pleasantly different, with lots and lots of windows to bring the interior/exterior contrast home.

It is a seriously split-level property, more or less in a U-shape, with quite a drop from the elevated rear portion — mostly bedrooms, bathroom and utility — to the living/kitchen area below, which is flooded with light and with the best of the views. Unusually, there’s one more ensuite bedroom in this lower level.

The four-bed house is a mile or so from Clonakilty, on a sloping hillside beyond and beneath the Ferhnill House Hotel. I: its aspect is south and west, and it’s on just over one acre.

It has an open plan lounge, 29’ by 19’ with open fireplace, French doors to a decked patio which feeds into the off-kitchen dining room, with units in a mix of ash and with painted cupboard doors. There’s a fully-tiled bathroom with corner bath, large utility, and three other bedrooms, one very large at 21’ by 14s’, and this one and one other has garden access. I: in all, there are six or seven points of access to the gardens and grounds from inside.

Features include oil-fired underfloor heating, mature gardens, and a great aspect, all on the doorstep of thriving Clonakilty. Joint agents are McKenna O’Donoghue Clarke REA in Cork city, and Henry O’Leary Property Partners in Clonakilty. Price guide is €590,000.
