HOUSE OF THE WEEK Light-filled home in Beara for €495k


‘ROARING Water’ – despite what the name suggests – sits in a most tranquil and private spot, tucked away in the lush Castletownbere countryside. 

On the market with Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill, it’s located at Millcove and has  a price tag of €495,000.

An architect-designed contemporary home, the slate modernist building is very sympathetic to its surrounds which includes a stream and waterfall to the front of the one-acre property. All rooms throughout the property feature large floor-to-ceiling windows, maximising the natural light and impressive garden views.

The three-bed house extends over 1,785 sq foot and is split-level with lots of nooks and crannies and a very clever use of space. 

Accommodation comprises an open plan kitchen/dining area, living room with double height ceilings and patio door, large guest bedroom en-suite with patio door to front also, which is a special touch. 

Upstairs there is the master bedroom with large walk-in wardrobe, a double bedroom, family bathroom and a linen press with the convenience of a laundry shoot to the downstairs utility room.   

The property enjoys an immensely private plot, is approached via a tarmacadam drive with landscaped gardens, and an attractive terrace area where it can all be enjoyed.
