THERE’S only been a hand­ful of €500,000+ house sales in the chi-chi coastal Schull area of West Cork since the Price Reg­is­ter started pick­ing up on sales, post 2010. About eight prop­er­ties show on the Reg­is­ter as hav­ing made ex­cess €500k, and one of the big­ger Schull vicin­ity sales was Cuileann Cot­tage, a wa­ter­fronting home by Dereena­tra pier, which sold for a re­ported €712,000. Now, also with a Dereena­tra ad­dress, but slightly more in­land and el­e­vated, is this c 2,200 sq ft ar­chi­tect-de­signed home, close to coves at Dereena­tra and Ross­brin and two miles from Schull it­self.

Lo­cal es­tate agent James Lyons O’ke­effe says it has views of Roar­ing­wa­ter Bay and the Fast­net light­house, is on su­perbly and colour­fully land­scaped and main­tained grounds of 0.75 of an acre and adds, “ev­ery de­tail is metic­u­lously planned and ex­e­cuted giv­ing an air of spa­cious­ness and in­ti­macy for fam­ily use in all ar­eas on the ground floor, and on the gal­leried floor above... and this ex­tends out into the sur­round­ing gar­den.” He guides at €565,000, and as well as the four-bed home, there’s a lofted de­tached garage/stu­dio.

De­sign was by ar­chi­tect Paul Mul­li­gan, now with Reddy Ar­chi­tec­ture + Ur­ban­ism in Cork, and the clients were his par­ents...so it’s safe to pre­sume a high level of thought and build­ing su­per­vi­sion went into its de­liv­ery!

VER­DICT: Qual­ity home
