A good bit of cheerful modernising has gone into the home upgrades at Sea Heights, Ahaglaslin, a four-bed detached bungalow on an elevated site above Owenahincha, near Rosscarbery in west Cork.
A simple, stand-out example is the splashback in the refitted kitchen, where the owners opted for fiery red splashback ‘subway’ or metro-style tiling, a marked contrast to the white kitchen units.
Sea Heights is listed with Clonakilty-based estate agent Ray O’Neill of Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill, and he seeks offers of around €229,000 for this coastal buy, with great bay and Galley Head/lighthouse views, within a walk of the two Owenahincha beaches and shop.
It’s affordable enough for a first-time buyer wanting a seaside home, for traders down, or as a holiday home.
This 950 sq ft bungalow manages to squeeze in four bedrooms, one with views plus en suite, and sitting room, with separate kitchen/diner and family bathroom “and it has been carefully finished into a quality home, within a stroll of some of west Cork’s finest beaches, including the Warren Strand by Rosscarbery”, says Mr O’Neill who’ll have it on show at Sherry Fitz’s February 20th London Property Show.
The sloping gardens are landscaped, and there’s a detached garage with workshop
VERDICT: A year-round, lifestyle option close to headland and woodland walks, surfing beaches and coves, as well as vibrant towns like Clonakility and Skibbereen, plus postcard pretty Rathbarry.
Size: 89 sq m (950 sq ft)
