COURTMACSHERRY village is a popular route for walkers in West Cork.

Large numbers start out in Timoleague and make their way to the coastal village where even more glorious walking routes await.

But as they are on their way, not many will be aware of the gem of the mid-terrace house they’re passing by at the church end of the village.

The Moorings is the former home of adventurer Tim Severin and is guiding €400,000 with selling agent Martin Kelleher.

Dating from the mid 1800s, it’s a stunning period property. The façade is elegant if understated, which only adds to the sense of excitement when you step through the door.

The four-bed property is in superb condition, renovated in recent years, and extends to a roomy 1,727 sq ft.

Features include an ensuite ground floor bedroom, and an upstairs living room to enjoy the views.

The property has been extended and renovated in recent years with the highlight being the 90 metre-long elevated, tiered gardens and a south facing patio.

There’s also a separate garage with street access.
