On the lookout for some new digs?
If you happen to have a cool €1.5m burning a hole in your pocket, we’d suggest nipping down to Baltimore, pronto.
One of the most spectacular properties in West Cork is currently for sale… and it comes with it’s own private pontoon.
The Grain Store in Ringarogy was built in the 19th Century to store grain for export during the Napoleonic Wars. The property underwent a complete transformation between 2000-2003, bringing it in line with 21st century luxury living standards.
Surrounded on three sides by the Ilen river estuary, the stone-clad mansion boasts five bedrooms and six bathrooms in 6,000 sq ft of living space.
The kitchen is a cook’s paradise; lava stone work surfaces contain an integrated Miele coffee maker, twin Miele dishwasher, Gaggenau steam oven and a Wolfe range with gas barbecue.
Twin SubZero wine fridges will hold plenty of bolly for impromptu get-togethers on the Indian sandstone sun terrace.
Plus, the home is being sold fully furnished, so the lucky buyer can enjoy cocktails beside the transparent piano in the plush lounge right away.
Upstairs the gym has outside access via stone steps and walnut stairs to a mezzanine seating area where you can cool off with a spot of al fresco yoga.
Bedrooms boast astonishing water views, glittering Baccarat chandeliers, built-in wardrobes and power showers.
The master suite’s wall-to-ceiling windows look out over Roaring Water Bay, with a marble ensuite, double shower and separate ‘his and hers’ dressing rooms with built-in wardrobes and shuttered blinds.
No need to worry about where to store your classic cars either; a triple door garage provides 800 sq ft of indoor parking space.
There’s event a potential helipad on the property for jetsetters, as well as a temporary pontoon to make boarding your luxury yacht a breeze in all tides. What more could you ask for in a private West Cork bolt hole?
The Grain Store is currently listed at €1.5m with Charles McCarthy Auctioneers.
We’re off to buy a lotto ticket.
