Ross­car­bery, West Cork, €495,000

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

Within a walk of a beach, and a walk of a well-served, friendly vil­lage which has lots of sports attractions, it’s lit­tle won­der that the Bur­ga­tia area of Ross­car­bery car­ries a West Cork prop­erty price pre­mium.

A west-fac­ing slope of ground, over­look­ing the la­goon and the N71 cause­way cross­ing, Bur­ga­tia is home to a cou­ple of dozen primely-set homes, most of them now in full-time fam­ily oc­cu­pa­tion.

Now, one that was built 30 years ago, on a 0.4-acre el­e­vated plot (above sev­eral oth­ers on the roadside and cir­cuit walk of the la­goon and amenity area) is for sale, on the mar­ket with Andy Donoghue and John Hod­nett, of Hod­nett Forde. The price is €495,000, and it’s un­der of­fer.

In the in­ter­ven­ing decades, it has been ex­tended and up­graded, says Mr Donoghue, and has five bed­rooms, two at at­tic level, where there’s also a bath­room.

At ground level is a sun room to the front, kitchen/ diner, din­ing room, liv­ing room, of­fice, and three more bed­rooms (one en suite), plus bath­room. Most of the day­time use rooms have un­ob­structed views over the la­goon to Ross­car­bery, where there are bars and restau­rants, and War­ren Strand is a 15-minute stroll away.

VER­DICT: A lovely spot, in so many ways, and a coastal life­style liv­ing op­tion, about an hour from Cork city, be­tween bustling towns like Clon­akilty and Sk­ib­bereen
