National Geographic calls it one of Europe’s ‘secret villages’.
Now there’s a rare chance to purchase your own little piece of beautiful Ballycotton, complete with uninterrupted views of one of its most famous sights.
The Pier, Ballycotton has hit the market at €370,000.
Currently laid out in two parts with a galley kitchen in each, the five-bedroom, one bathroom property is positioned in an unbeatable location on Ballycotton’s Main Street and extends to a roomy 2,450 sq.ft.
There are rooms aplenty, including two sitting rooms, two dining rooms and a cellar that could be used as a storage area or a workshop.
The interior needs some modernisation for sure, but the abundance of wood panelling could be a plus; a few coats of paint will give it a trendy, nautical look – something that fans of shiplap and beachy decor pay top dollar for.
“This fine property oozes potential and offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform a quirky building into a comfortable family home.” say the agents, Hegarty Properties.
“Also in close proximity are a good selection of local amenities such as bars, restaurants, church, school, while the thriving business town of Midleton is approximately twenty minutes drive away.”
With the SeaChurch restaurant and music venue just a stone’s throw from the door and Cush, the cosy bar and eatery right across the road, you’ll never need a taxi home after enjoying a good night out.
Adventurers can ramble the Ballycotton Cliff Walk daily and take a dip in the icy water from the rocky platform known as the “men’s bathing area”, all under the watchful eye of the 19th-century lighthouse across the bay.
