Of glorious Glandore
Attention from sailors and landlubbers alike, writes Tommy Barker
after the build the gardens were laid out by West Cork-based designer Verney Naylor.
Apart from maritime touches and marina panorama beyond, there’s almost an LA feel to the interior, mainly thanks to the sinewy presence of the feature, corner set curving marble staircase linking all three levels, with a wrought iron balustrade by Ronan Creative Ironwork, first encountered from the entrance hall, and ending down below decks with a nautical compass motif.
Mid-ships rooms include a kitchen/diner with painted blue hardwood units, sitting room, en suite bedroom, and guest WC.
The top floor meanwhile, has two bedrooms, with big master with high-pitched vaulted ceilings, luxurious private bathroom and dressing room, and this upper deck also has a living room with two balconies, offering an irresistible draw to stand out and to admire, well, the radharc.
