IF you needed motivation to continue playing the Lotto, Seafield House in Castletownshend is it.
Although with strong interest in the truly special property which comes with a €5m price tag coming from the UK and the US, it’s not likely to languish on the market for long.
The sale is managed by Charles McCarthy, Skibbereen who say it’s one of the most attractive coastal properties to come to the market in recent times.
Its credentials speak for themselves: a waterfront location, immense scale extending over 8,500 sq ft, set on four acres, three mews cottages, one mews apartment, detached studio, two boathouses and extensive private shorefront (c. 300 yards) including beach and slipways.
Bought by its current owner some 30 years ago, the Georgian house, with three separate entrances, was used mainly for holidays, and its upkeep and maintenance is impressive.
The main house boasts six bedrooms over three levels while the three Mews cottages and apartment are described as being well suited to private guest or staff accommodation. Each cottage has two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom. The apartment has one bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom.
They could be easily rented without infringing on the privacy of the main residence as they’ve a separate entrance to the main estate.
The studio comprises a kitchen, living/dining room, bathroom and lofted storage
Stand out features in the main house include a wine cellar with a claim to fame that actor Kevin Costner previously stayed in the property while researching a script.
Just think, it could be you!
