It has an unrivalled view of Kenmare Bay and the Caha Mountains with the Roughty River Valley to the south east of the property.

This house was totally restored some years ago, and has retained some of the old features, combined with up-to-date insulation, power showers and zoned heating. It also retains some of the original fireplaces, and has a light and airy feel, an excellent mix of the old and the new.
The ground floor has a fully fitted kitchen, and an open plan living and dining room with a woodburner. The first floor has a second open plan living room with patio doors and balcony overlooking Kenmare Bay and mountains.
