IF A SEA view is on the list of must-haves for your property search, you will be in luck with this gem of a home as close as possible to the water.
In fact, Edgewater is the only residential property in Kinsale, Co Cork, with direct water access via its own private marina and slipway. If you’ve been looking for a spot to dock your sailboat (or six), here’s your opportunity.
Edgewater was built in 1990 by the current owner’s family and was designed to match the traditional Kinsale architectural style, with rough-hewn stone on the lower level and slate siding on the upper level.
The 1950 sq ft home includes two large reception rooms, one on each floor, and the ground floor entrance leads through a glazed teak door to the kitchen/living/dining room that overlooks the harbour via an expansive terrace.
Two bedrooms, one with an en suite bathrooms, are located on the ground floor at the rear. The upstairs offers a large sitting room with floor-to-ceiling windows that opens onto a sheltered balcony with 180-degree views of Kinsale Harbour. Two en suite bedrooms and the main bathroom are located on the upper level as well.
There is ample parking to the rear of the property, and the 90-foot floating marina can accommodate up to six boats.
The area, which draws sailors from around the globe, is known for being a culinary hotspot; local restaurant, Bastion, was recently awarded a Michelin star. And while you’ll have to hop in the car to head to the airport, the journey will only take you 20 minutes, with Cork city a 30-minute drive away.
Sail on over to Edgewater for a front-row seat to one of the most vibrant harbours in the country.
