Pining for the salty air?
If the summer holidays have left you seriously considering a move to the Cork coast, you could start your new life by the sea in a restored period cottage with panoramic views of Capel Island, Knockadoon Peninsula and Ring Strand.
Guiding at €285,000, No. 6 Coastguard Cottages in Ballymacoda is a three-bedroom, one-bathroom terraced home that’s just hit the market with Hegarty Properties.
“Built by the British Empire in the 1860s as the ‘Captains House’ but upgraded throughout the years, this is a house of great character.” says agent Kyle Kennedy.
“The property is located in an unbeatable location boasting unspoiled panoramic views of the sea from the first floor living quarters.”
Inside the interior is cosy and stylish, with an original stone fireplace, pitch pine flooring, sash window, and a new kitchen.
To the front of the property, a large garden with patio area is the perfect spot to enjoy the panoramic sea views.
To the back, there is a stone shed for extra storage and a lawned garden.
If you can pull yourself away from your sun lounger on the terrace, Ring Strand is famous for its periwinkles, mussel farming, and bird watching, so there’s plenty to keep you busy locally.
