Ready to make working from home a permanent thing?
If you’re one of many city dwellers considering a full-time move to the Cork coast, there’s a heavenly family home in Ballylickey that might just be the answer to your prayers.
Seahaven, an elegant converted church on around 2.1 acres of mature gardens and meadow at Dromkeal, has just hit the market at €349,000, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a host of stunning Gothic features that have been carefully preserved by the current owner.
Just a stone’s throw from the popular swimming spot at Snave Pier, the period property has been artfully restored without losing any of its historical charm.
“On the ground floor is a front porch, sitting room with wood burning stove, large open plan living space with high vaulted ceiling and an adjacent kitchen and snug.,” say selling agents, Sherry Fitzgerald.
“The living area is an ideal space for entertaining whilst the snug could be readily used as a home office. There is a bathroom with power shower along with a large utility room also at this level.”
Upstairs are three bedrooms including a mezzanine room and a WC.
Original features of this recently restored property include an attractive cut stone facade, oil fired central heating, a wood-burning stove, exposed timber beams, large gothic windows and an original stained-glass window featuring the Star of David and passionflowers.
The gardens have been laid out in lawn with mature trees and shrubs along with a large meadow to the rear and side of the property, which may offer further potential subject to planning permission.
Just five miles from Glengarriff and a ten-minute drive from Bantry, Seahaven offers a tantalising opportunity to spend your days on the Wild Atlantic Way… with Cork Airport just an hour away should you ever want to leave.
