Itching to get away from it all?
If you dream of setting up home in a quiet sanctuary and running art classes or yoga retreats, there’s a property on Sherkin Island that could be the perfect base for living your best life.
Located around two miles south-west of the main pier and ferry point at the Abbey on Sherkin Island, Slievemore is a restored period cottage 0.5 acres.
The views are magnificent, sweeping over the coastline to the mainland, which is a ten-minute hop by ferry to Baltimore, with regular ferry service throughout the year.
Inside, the cottage features exposed stonework and beautiful beams, as well as a cosy stove for warming your toes against in winter.
“Accommodation consists of the kitchen/living room, sitting room/bedroom and conservatory on the ground floor along with a shower room.” says agent Charles McCarthy.
“On the first floor, there are two bedrooms and a large landing area which can also be utilised as a further bedroom. In the course of the restoration, great care was taken to retain and enhance its period features.”
Outside, there is a wide range of outbuildings, including a studio with an attached conservatory and a timber decking terrace with views of the sea. With a little bit of upgrading, this could be a space for classes and workshops or a cosy guest room for visitors.
The entire property is surrounded by rustic gardens, home to semi-tropical plants, trees and shrubbery.
