GALLEY Cove is one of West Cork’s most sought-after locations, being on the edge of the delightful village of Crookhaven, and close to the stunning Barleycove Beach.
A hugely popular holiday home location, summertime neighbours along this stretch of coastline are some of Cork’s best known professionals and business people. But there is also a healthy wintertime presence too, with many choosing to base themselves in this gorgeous part of West Cork on a full-time basis.
If you want to enjoy breathtaking sea views and mix with the best, then this five-bed modern home could be the perfect choice.
Watch the iconic Fastnet Lighthouse or study ships making passage across the Atlantic, on the distant horizon.
With one acre of sloping landscaped grounds, there is much to offer the potential viewer at this Galley Cove home which is asking €745,000, reflecting the cachet of the address.
Inside, the large kitchen-diner has oak floor and wall cabinets with a tiled floor, electric hob, double oven and extractor, an American fridge freezer, integrated dishwasher, centre island and breakfast bar with sliding glass doors to the patio and on to the spectacular Atlantic view.
There is also a sun porch with tiled floor and vaulted wooden ceiling at this level, and an oak-floored sunroom, with sliding doors to the patio.
Upstairs, there is a large landing with sea views, decorated in soothing shades of lilac and cream.
Most of the bedrooms benefit from the great sea views. The largest bathroom has a corner bath and is fully tiled.
The home has an embarrassment of local beaches nearby, none better than one consistently voted Ireland’s finest – Barleycove, which is just one mile away. Galley Cove itself is a beautiful gentle beach of white sands and sits at the end of Brow Head – a popular walking spot which last year hosted the cast and crew of Star Wars. Mizen Head and its wonderful visitor centre and coffee shop is just a short drive away, while Crookhaven village has several bars, coffee shops, a jewellery shop and is a hive of activity in the summer.
