The welcoming community attracts residents also, from far and wide, as well as lifestyle relocators, and so the viewing interest on this upgraded Knocknacurrin Dunmore East dormer may also also come from a broad catchment.

Carrying a €525,000 price tag with auctioneer Warren Palmer, this 2006-built four-bed detached home on a half-acre site was fully refurbished and enhanced in 2014. 

And, it has a broad sweep of sea views, as well as of the Saltees and Hook Head plus lighthouse, plus is just one kilometre from Councillor’s Strand and the lower village, at the end of a cul de sac.

Palmer Auctioneers bill the c 2,000 sq ft home with pvc sash windows as being in showhouse condition, with upgraded bathrooms and kitchen and finishes, and the half acre is gently sloping and well-stocked with shrubs, trees and has now-mature hedge boundaries helping to set the appropriate scene.

VERDICT: Roll on Redwater fame.
