It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
If you’ve got a cool €2.25m burning a hole in your bank account and you fancy setting up home in Ireland’s Gourmet Capital, your ideal home just hit the market.
Edgewater, a four-bedroom, four-bathroom detached property, is literally perched on the edge of the water in Kinsale, just beyond The Trident Hotel.
Built during the 1970s by the current owner’s family, the house is designed in traditional Kinsale architectural style; stone-built with slate upper elevations.
“The build quality is excellent with slate roof, which overhangs the upper floor balcony, concrete upper floor, PVC double glazed windows and doors, fascia and soffit.” say real estate agents Savills.
“This quayside location is accessed via timber access gates with an abundance of parking space to the rear of the property. The property enjoys 180-degree views over Kinsale harbour with James Fort and Castlepark as a backdrop to the south-west with Charles Fort and Ardbrack Hill to the south-east.”
Inside, there are 1950 square feet of living space over two floors with two very large reception rooms, one on each level to make the most of the views.
At ground level, an entrance hallway leads through a glazed teak door to the kitchen/living-dining room, which opens directly on to the terrace overlooking the harbour – perfect for summer soirees and pre-dinner drinks.
The kitchen leads to a utility room with access to the side of the property. Two bedrooms, one of which is ensuite, and a guest loo are located to the rear of the property on this floor.
Upstairs a large sitting room opens directly to the large balcony, which is sheltered by the overhang of the roof so you can enjoy your morning coffee with epic views of the harbour, whatever the weather. There are two ensuite bedrooms and the main bathroom is also at this level.
If sailing is your passion, the deep water marina is a dream feature; a galvanised gangway provides access directly from the quayside terrace.
“The marina has a low water depth of 2.7m and is suitable for most craft including deep keel yachts. The 90ft floating marina is piled and can accommodate approximately six boats with its own foreshore license.” say the agents.
With the Michelin-starred Bastion restaurant located a short stroll down the street and the Old Head of Kinsale Golf Club just across the harbour, Cork dream home locations don’t get much better than Edgewater.
