Eco-features at Baltimore, West Cork €345,000

It might be heading out of sunny, holiday season, but this Baltimore modern build is a home for all seasons.

Featuring solar panels and a geothermal heating system, along with a quality build and bright, southerly aspect, this modern home with sea, island and Ilen river views is priced at €345,000 by Micheal Duggan, of Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill, in West Cork, who says it’s as good a base as a buyer would want for year-round occupation or as a holiday home.

It’s a mile or so up above Baltimore, along a country road interspersed with one-off homes, all pitched for those Roaringwater Bay views, and it comes with four bedrooms, one at ground-level, plus some design touches (such as an en-suite shower behind a curved-glass block wall in one of the bedrooms).

Joinery is above the norm, mostly in oak, says Mr Duggan.

Rooms include a high-ceilinged and bright hall, sitting room with double aspect and fireplace, kitchen/dining/family room with good timber units, study, and a lofty sun room with apex glazing, wood-sheeted, vaulted-ceiling sun-room, which has a suspended, polycarbonate bubble seat for seaviews through the pine-tree boundaries.

VERDICT: A quality home for all seasons.
