Things are getting very Boomy ’round here.
As house-hunters in Cork City battle it out in bidding wars for properties of all shapes and sizes, those with dreams of building a home by the coast will also be needing deeper pockets.
One of the last remaining greenfield sites in Ardbrack, Kinsale has hit the market at an eye-watering €1.1m.
According to the selling agent, Savills, the site, which is a five-minute walk from Kinsale town, comes to the market with the benefit of full planning permission for the construction of one detached two-storey house.
“Designed by architect Richard Rainey of Kinsale, this crisp and contemporary design maximises the unobstructed views, natural light, and sense of tranquillity that comes with this site,” they say.
“The internal accommodation and layout have been thoughtfully planned with a mix of living and bedroom spaces on each level. The emphasis on the light and view in the property’s design is evident with most spaces running almost the depth of the property whilst still allowing room for hallways and storerooms at the rear.”
The home is designed to blend into the existing topography and become “a seamless addition” to this section of Kinsale’s coastline.
