SET IN THE heart of Crookhaven village right by the waterfront, Journey’s End is an idyllic property in every sense of the word. 

The West Cork three-bed boasts direct access to the shore from the garden, as well as uninterrupted views of the harbour, pier and village.

On the market for €850,000 through James Lyon O’Keeffe, Journey’s End has two pathways to the front, as well as a neat garden with lawn areas and mature shrubs and plants.

The interior of the property enjoys the cosiness and charm of a country cottage, while also benefitting from a bright and airy extension to the rear.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors in the sunroom extension provide panoramic views of the water and the surrounding countryside, while double doors open to a patio area just steps from the water’s edge.

These views can also be enjoyed from the dining room thanks to large picture windows in here, with space for a dining table to seat at least six. It’s likely that this room will only be used in the colder months, however, as the views from the patio are too good to miss.

The kitchen is not extensive by any means, but includes all of the necessary appliances and storage space for day-to-day living. 

The living room is the place you’d want to be on a cold winter’s day, with a wood-burning stove in here. Exposed brickwork and stone floors add to the charming country feel.

There’s one double bedroom on the ground floor, as well as the main bathroom. The master bedroom is at first floor level and benefits from built-in storage, while the last bedroom is just the right size for a single bed and a set of bunkbeds. From the landing, there’s access to a small terrace with elevated views of the pier and harbour.

Although it gets busier during the summer months, Crookhaven is a tranquil village at its core. For busier spots, head to Goleen (a 10-minute drive) or Schull (a 30-minute drive).

If you’re looking for a quiet way of life by the water, you’ll find just that at Journey’s End.
