A FIVE-bedroom waterfront residence with its own private mooring has come on the market adjacent to the third fairway at Bantry Golf Club.Â
Highwater, at Donemark is a private seafront holding, boasting impressive landscaped gardens and breathtaking views of Bantry harbour and surrounding islands.Â
All things combined it will tick a lot of boxes for water, golf and gardening lovers on the house-hunting circuit.
And while Harrington Estates Auctioneers and Valuers, who are handling the sale, say the price is only available on application, they say the home with its spectacular seafront setting is âarguably the finest shore front residence to appear on the Bantry property market in a generation.'
The residence has the advantage of having ground floor bedrooms (including the master en-suite) and spacious living and sunroom, all of which have undisturbed coastal views.Â
The kitchen and dining room also come with the benefit of those special sea vistas. Â
The extensive shoreline â around 100m of which is exclusive â means that this property will have particular appeal to water lovers, be that boating fans, fishing, or watersport enthusiasts.Â
Whether to launch a day's fishing or provide mooring for a yacht, this is the perfect launching pad.Â
The landscaped and spacious gardens will be another draw as they have been beautifully designed and maintained (even at high tide the vegetation and shrubbery are not adversely affected).Â
Back inside there's also plenty to offer â the house is well finished with a particularly spacious hallway and attractive staircase; along with very pleasant sunroom and elegant dining room.Â
