Rare opportunity to acquire a luxurious recently renovated lifestyle property, offering fabulous accommodation on an elevated plot with outstanding coastal views.
Cleverly thought out, Hill House blends a bright and spacious 2750 Sqft layout with fresh and super stylish internal décor.
In recent years, the meticulous owners have lavished time and expense on improving the property, which they saw as their ‘forever home’. As a result, Hill House is now finished to a very high standard and has a comfortable, ultra-economical, A2 BER rating.
Some highlights include triple glazing and upgraded insulation throughout, solar PV panels with battery backup, heat recovery ventilation, 2 stoves, and an air to water heating system.
The location is quiet but not isolated and there is an excellent 6 km signposted looped walk on the doorstep with stunning scenery. Timoleague is 5 minutes’ drive, Clonakilty town 10 minutes, and 15 minutes bring you to world class beaches such as Dunworley and Inchydoney. Kinsale is a 30-minute coastal drive along the Wild Atlantic Way, with Cork city and international airport a commutable 50 minutes.
The views from this elevated 0.7-acre perch span the Old Head of Kinsale right across the Seven Heads and on to Inchydoney Bay. When the sun shines at any point from sunrise to sunset, it shines on Hill House.
Complementing the superb accommodation is a spacious 440 Sqft garage/workshop with attached shed/lean-to.
Working from home potential is strong with all of the space on offer and strong mobile phone and broadband coverage.
The feature list for this property is massive and a viewing is welcome & recommended.
