Gen­er­ous home in­gar­ryvoe­has plenty to of­fer

Scans East Cork

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

BIG build, big bones, big rooms, big views, and big site. And beaches nearby. They’re some of the big sell­ing points for the wide, deep, and well fit­ted-out East Cork bun­ga­low that goes un­der the name of Gar­ryvoe Manor.

Built back in the early 2000s, on a 0.75 acre coastal site with a view span­ning the At­lantic ocean, Bal­ly­cot­ton the is­land and the light- house that crowns it, this is a 4,300 sq ft, well-tended fam­ily home with five bed­rooms, sev­eral en suites (two, plus a third shared be­tween two other bed­rooms, and games rooms.

But, it’s the main liv­ing room that sets the tone — quite lit­er­ally. At 25’ by 20,’ it eas­ily fits in a baby grand pi­ano among the other fur­nish­ing items, and the room has a dou­ble as­pect with views from its su­per-sized win­dows, plus a tall, white mar­ble chim­ney­p­iece.

The qual­ity kitchen/din­ing room is even big­ger, and it too has views to whet the ap­petite... for seafood?

Boththe­se­larg­e­room­sare­given even more airi­ness thanks to part­vaulted ceil­ings which help to bal­ance the over­all pro­por­tions of this ar­chi­tect-de­signed sea­side ranch­like manor.

In ad­di­tion, there’s a util­ity, pantry and a games room, and the guest WC has a Jacuzzi bath, as does the mas­ter bed­room en-suite, along with a walk-in wardrobe

Joint sell­ing agents are Mal­colm Tyrrell of Co­ha­lan Down­ing in Cork city, with He­len Kear­ney of CCM Prop­erty, and they say that its large win­dows, and unique de­sign, “cap­tures the stun­ning vis­tas of the At­lantic Ocean, the rugged coast­line and equally beau­ti­ful sur­round­ing coun­try­side.”

Guide price is €550,000, and the set­ting is by the miles of sandy beaches around Gar­ryvoe and its highly-re­garded ho­tel, with restau­rants, bars and other ameni­ties plus sports fa­cil­i­ties and out­doors ac­tiv­i­ties all in the vicin­ity, and back to­wards Bal­ly­cot­ton and Shana­garry.

VERDICT: A gen­er­ous build
