High spec fitout on Sherkin for €410,000


A HOUSE ON idyllic Sherkin Island off the west Cork coast has a price tag of €410,000. Kilmoon, a four-bed home on a three-quarter-acre site, is for sale through Keane Mahony Smith.

Built in 1999, the house is laid out over 186sq m (2,000sq ft) and has a modern kitchen/diningroom, utility room, study and three bedrooms on the ground floor. Upstairs there is a lounge with picture windows and the main bedroom with en suite bathroom.

The house has been kitted out to a very high spec with underfloor heating (with control in each room), timber floors and carpeting.

The house is approached down a pretty avenue. Outside there is a large decked area which wraps around three sides of the house. Gardens are well-maintained and feature a mysterious 16ft standing stone. Despite its appearance it does not date from the neolithic era - it was pulled out during foundation construction.

The house is 15 minutes' walk to the ferry, pubs, hotel and shop and a stroll from three sandy beaches. The ferry takes 10 to 15 minutes to get to Baltimore.
