Dreaming of a new life by the sea?
If Kinsale is calling you to set up home in Ireland’s ‘Gourmet Capital’, there’s a chance to buy your own little piece of the pie in the middle of town.
Set on Newman’s Mall, a colourful little laneway that leads off one of the most photographed spots in the village, Kristin’s Cottage has hit the market, guiding at €200,000.
Painted pastel peach and listed with James Murphy & Co., the one-bedroom, one-bathroom terraced cottage would make an ideal investment property, holiday home, or starter home.
Originally built in 1760, the layout could do with some modernising and reconfiguring to create a small but comfortable open-plan living area.
Upstairs there’s a bedroom and bright ensuite that could easily be transformed into a stylish haven to relax in after a long day of swimming or sailing.
A small yard out the back that could fit a small table and chairs. With a lick of paint and a hanging basket or two, it’ll make a lovely spot for a glass of vino in privacy on those warm summer nights.
“Kinsale provides excellent sailing, yachting and fishing facilities from its two marinas.” say the auctioneers.
“There are three world-class golf courses, including the renowned Old Head of Kinsale. Other recreational pursuits include walking, bathing, surfing, and horse riding.
“Throughout the year, there are numerous cultural events, such as the world-famous Kinsale Arts Festival, the Cork Jazz Festival, Cork Film Festival, and Kinsale Gourmet Festival, along with a thriving music and opera programme.”
Convinced? Kinsale properties are rare as hen’s teeth at the moment so if you’d like to arrange a viewing, contact James Murphy & Co pronto.
