IT’s rare that an apartment with city-style sophistication and finish comes on the market in West Cork.
Buyers in this region of the county are more familiar with seeing converted farmhouses and modern dormers on large landscaped sites.
But apartments in West Cork are rarely as well presented and finished as this one, which is now on the market at the Waterfront complex in Clonakilty.
This architect-designed two-bed would look just as comfortable in a docklands development in Dublin, with its sleek look and luxury extras.
In fact, it’s unlikely many Dublin city centre apartments could offer the space and light available at No 2 The Waterfront.This home, with its views over Clonakilty, includes an entrance hallway and an open plan living area comprising a lounge, dining area and smart tiled kitchen, with floor and wall wood-finish units, recessed and hanging lighting, a built-in oven, separate hob and extractor, an island unit and sleek black worktops.
There are large windows overlooking the outdoor plaza, and generating a lot of light in this area. There is a yellow feature wall in the lounge area, which is complemented by soothing greys, charcoals and whites.
There are two bedrooms, one ensuite, and a utility area.
The main bedroom has a built-in mirrored wardrobe and a fully tiled shower room. There is ample room for a large bed and there is good light from the feature window.The second bedroom is also double-sized and the second bathroom is also fully tiled with a large vanity unit, well-lit mirror and large heated towel rail.
There is also a good-sized south-facing patio, with plenty of room for outdoor furniture or barbeque, and good views of the surrounding countryside. Inside, there is gas central heating, and top quality appliances in all the rooms.
The apartment, accessed by lift, also comes with its own parking space. It has a BER rating of B3 and comes with an asking price of €195,000.
