The four-bed has beautiful gardens, two patios – and lots to love inside, too.

LOCATED A 20-MINUTE walk from the harbour town of Bantry in West Cork, this four-bed property has plenty of appeal.

The house has a contemporary design, but there’s plenty of charm here too. Tastefully upgraded and extended in 2011, the layout makes the most of the views of the surrounding countryside and Bantry Bay, with picture windows throughout the property.

There are multiple impressive features in the 2,745 sq ft house, including timber windows, walnut steps and handrails on the stairs, and solid pitch pine kitchen units. It’s also fairly energy efficient, with a B3 Building Energy Rating,

The light-filled living area is the most impressive room in the house, with the clever design creating different seating ‘zones’ throughout the space. A redbrick fireplace and wood-burning stove adds a cosy feel to the room, with six-metre sliding glass doors on the other side overlooking Bantry Bay.

These doors open to the front patio, where there’s a large decking area and a snazzy pizza oven. It all adds up to make the perfect space for entertaining outdoors, and there’s also another partly-covered seating area to the rear.

Families with teens or those who like some peace and quiet will like that the kitchen/dining room is separate to the living area. The mid-century modern-style kitchen features bespoke units and a Belfast sink, with room for a table to seat four. A small conservatory extends from the dining area, with a utility room off the kitchen.

Moving down the hallway, there are four bedrooms, the main bathroom and a home office. The master bedroom is filled with natural light and enjoys beautiful countryside views thanks to large glass sliding doors, while a walk-in wardrobe means clutter can be kept out of sight and out of mind.

There’s another large bedroom at attic level with feature lighting, a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom. The study space is also located here, which is sure to be appreciated by those who are working from home. Lastly, a double bedroom with a built-in children’s bed area completes the accommodation.

Additionally, there’s a garage to the side of the house which is currently used as a workshop, but could easily be transformed into a den or games room.
