WITH BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPES, sandy beaches and thriving towns, it’s easy to understand the appeal of West Cork.
This week we’re looking at four properties in the picturesque setting – from a unique five-bed to a family home in Bandon.
With views over Glandore Harbour, Tralong Bay and the Galley Head Lighthouse, this four-bed property is an idyllic countryside retreat. It is positioned on one acre of grounds and spans an impressive 3,000 sq ft of living space, with features including picture windows, a sunroom and a south-facing patio.
Set on a 0.74 acre south-facing site, this four-bed home enjoys views of Roaring Water Bay and its islands from every room. It features a charming and character-filled interior with reclaimed antique mahogany parquet flooring, a solid fuel stove and large windows to maximise the beautiful views. The site includes a raised patio area, landscaped lawns and mature trees and shrubbery.
Located a five-minute drive from Bandon town, 8 Inis Orga is a highly appealing family home. The interior is modern and well-kept, with features including wooden floors, bespoke bathrooms and high end appliances. Outside, a detached garage operates as a home office and storage space. There’s a large Indian sandstone paved patio to the rear, as well as raised low-maintenance planting.
If you’re looking for a property unlike any other, Woodsmoke might just be the one for you. The five-bed house was built in 1994 and was designed to be eco-friendly, with water being sourced from a spring well. The accommodation spans 2,300 sq ft over five split levels, while outside there is 2.25 acres of private woodlands.
