NESTLING in the foothills of Mount Gabriel is a five-bedroomed house with cutting edge design.
At 3,000 sq ft, space is not an issue in this quality residence which sits on circa 0.5 acres of a mature plot located at Rathcool, one mile outside Schull.
On the market for €475,000, its traditional exterior gives little to hint at what to expect inside, which is part the excitement surrounding this property.
At every turn there’s a statement feature or dramatic touch including vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, a glass floor, cathedral-style window and circular stairway.
Reception accommodation comprises a sitting, dining and games room – all with vast windows designed to bring the outside in.
The sitting room has French doors which open onto a west-facing patio while the dining area has doors onto a deck.
The first floor landing features a partial glass floor – not for the faint hearted – while one of the five bedrooms boasts a charming balcony.
Bathrooms in the property as original and high spec as you mght expect.
Natural materials including slate tiles, maple floors and wooden beams make this house an attractive and sympathetic addition to the rugged landscape that surrounds it.
