Many, many win­dows, and just about all of them has a vista that in­cludes water — that’s what agent Michelle Galvin says of Span­ish Cove, a bun­ga­low close to West Cork’s Goleen vil­lage, over­look­ing Roar­ing­wa­ter Bay, Long Is­land, and more dis­tant views out to Cape Clear.

The older-era, split-level home might be dated dec­o­ra­tively, and need some up­grades plus prob­a­bly a new kitchen and bath­room mod­ernising, but its bones are good, as is the in­ter­nal lay­out, its as­pect is bang on, and its 0.6 of an acre of grounds is just over a mile from Goleen, and six miles from Bar­ley Cove beach. Home hol­i­day nir­vana.

The Ban­don-based DNG Galvin agent Ms Galvins says it can be moved into straight away, and she pins a €195,000 AMV to Span­ish Cove, which has one of its three rel­a­tively com­pact bed­rooms and a shower room at a lower level.

The kitchen’s at one end. At the other, the best room by far, is a 20’ by 14’ space with win­dows on three sides, with a fea­ture chunky lime­stone chim­ney breast and big fire bas­ket, per­fect for win­ter nights in af­ter brac­ing head­land or shore­line walks. De­spite get­ting good qual­ity Hele dou­ble glaz­ing in, en­ergy up­grades might also be on the wish-list.

VER­DICT: Huge po­ten­tial from small tweaks
