HOUSE OF THE WEEK Bantry four-bed for €395k
WITH direct access to a beach, architect-designed Ardnagashel Lodge between Bantry and Glengarriff has a lot going for it before potential buyers even step inside.
One of its many attractive exterior features is its dramatic entrance, which is through a stone archway that dates back to the 1850s and which was the original estate entrance.
Access to the sea is via a right-of-way down through a meandering tree-lined pathway.
Trees, in fact, are what give the Lodge, on the market with Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill for €395,000, so much of its allure. The property comprises 1.5 acres of landscaped gardens set into native woodland, adjoining Bantry Bay, comprising a range of specimen trees and plants, including black walnut, acer, elderflower, loquat, red oak, beech, rhododendrons and magnolia.
The house itself is a four-bed ensuite residence which conjures up a whole string of ‘p’s: pristine, pretty and picture perfect.
It’s a very comfortable home that has been carefully crafted to take advantage of the ambience of this unique historic estate and is full of light and space.
Accommodation includes entrance porch and hallway, sitting room, sun room, kitchen-cum-dining room, utility, study, library and the four ensuites, two of which are ground floor.
The property also has an adjoining garage-cum-workshop directly attached to the residence.
