Property description

Church Cottage is a charming beachside house offering plenty of space for all the family inside and outside. The property is situated overlooking the beaches at Coolmain and Harbour View and is just a few seconds walk directly onto the beach. The property offers stunning views across to Courtmacsherry Bay and the surrounding countryside.

This property was built c.1860 and retains much of its original form and character best seen in its unusual window openings, a fine bell-cote and slate roof. It originally served as the private chapel for the residents of Coolmain Castle. It has been updated and renovated in recent years with a total floor area of c. 240 sqm. It features a fully fitted cream hardwood kitchen with a spiral staircase leading to an overhead mezzanine, a stove and beautiful views from the large Gothic style windows. Just off the kitchen is a double bedroom, family bathroom and a pantry. Double doors lead into the spacious sitting room which has underfloor heating, an open fireplace and large windows overlooking the beaches. A porch also leads into the siting room from the front. Just off the sitting room are three bedrooms, the master bedroom is ensuite. A connecting door leads to a self-contained unit at the rear of the main house.

Externally there is a large garden which has been partially landscaped and partially laid to lawn with gravelled areas to the back and rear of the property for al fresco dining. There are two large storage units to the rear and a workshop attached to the main house. The house would benefit from cosmetic upgrades and does indeed offer the flexibility to be further developed to suit a new owner’s needs and requirements.
