Think you’d fare okay as a castaway?
If a quiet life on a white sandy beach sounds like your idea of heaven, there’s a rare opportunity to purchase a beach house with uninterrupted views of the sea near Clonakilty.
Sheep’s Cove in South Ring has hit the market, offering a sweet chalet retreat with the kind of privacy you only ever see in movies.
There’s even a polytunnel out the back so if you’re green-of-finger, you could reasonably survive for weeks without encountering another human at all.
Inside there’s timber flooring, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room, all quite cosy and well-kept.
Of course, the site could present some exciting possibilities for a developer too and planning has previously been granted for a state-of-the-art residence extending to 227 metres² in place of the present residence if that’s the type of project that floats your boat.
As it stands, the main attraction is the large south-facing balcony overlooking the water, which takes in sweeping views of Clonakilty Bay.
“The setting is stunning with the garden ending at the beautiful quiet sandy beach, well renowned by locals but thankfully bypassed by most visitors.” say the agents.
“It is one of the most secluded coves in the area. It’s privacy along with its location on the beach in South Ring, five miles from the award-winning town of Clonakilty, makes it a most unique opportunity.”
The property last hit the market in 2015 at €295,000. For information on the current list price (POA) contact Hodnett Forde, Emmet Square, Clonakilty.
