IT’S all go out around the Knock­adoon penin­sula by Youghal Bay and Bal­ly­ma­coda these weeks: not only has the East Cork equiv­a­lent of Sum­mer Bay had a long tradition of gaeltacht sum­mer camps, but it also hosts faith-based week-long sum­mer camp for teens through June and July, which means the small coastal com­mu­nity gets a youth­ful buzz and in­jec­tion of life for the fine weather days.

About a quar­ter-hour drive from Youghal, Knock­adoon also has beaches, cliff and shore­line walks and a year-round com­mu­nity life also. Now, the ar­rival of a good-qual­ity, 1,785 sq ft bun­ga­low with de­tached garage on up to two acres could in­deed see buy­ers keen on hol­i­day home use, full-time oc­cu­pancy, or a mix of both, with re­tire­ment use also pos­si­bly on the hori­zon. Fresh to market for sum­mer 2017 is Ais­ling (trans­lated from the Ir­ish as ‘dream,’) and it’s a mod­ern, sin­gle storey home with more space within thanks to shel­ter­ing, rear wing ex­ten­sions. Ais­ling car­ries a €350,000 ask­ing price via Fiona Hen­nessy of Sherry Fitzger­ald Hen­nessy in Youghal, and she says the gar­dens of 0.75 of an acre are man­i­cured. In ad­di­tion to the land­scaped and well laid out gar­den and lawn, is a 1.25 acre field with en­trance to the side of the house and run­ning behind it and away from the road.

It’s in super-smart con­di­tion in­ter­nally, has two re­cep­tion rooms with match­ing fire­places, kitchen/diner with maple units and pa­tio ac­cess, while also off the kitchen is a pro­ject­ing rear wood-ceilinged sun room, and for af­ter the sun goes down, there are three bed­rooms, one of which is en suite, in ad­di­tion to the main fam­ily bath­room.

VER­DICT: Op­por­tu­nity knock-adoons.
